On Friday 27th May we had our Fitness Vibe quiz night at the Civic Hall, Cottingham. It was a great success with 140 tickets sold to Fitness Vibe class members and their friends and family.
Ian Start the chairman of Cottingham Village Trust was an excellent quiz master and really made us work our grey matter! Papa’s of Willerby and Kingswood provided the fish and chip supper with excellent service.
Lots of local busness owners kindly donated to the raffle where the takings were in excess of £400. All proceeds on the night will be going to the Cottingham Village Trust to maintain and retain the Civic Hall in the hands of the local community. Once I have the final figure made on the evening I with publicise it here on the website.
Well done to the team “Spanks!” for taking the first prize, also well done to our joint runners up “Rambling Roses” and “Smarty Pants”.
What a fabulous night we all had. Don’t miss out next year ladies!
On Tuesday 3rd May our Monday morning Fitness Gold Keep Fit group had a day trip to Burstwick Country Golf. We had a really “swinging” time with Matt Daley and Luke Bell, the two golf pro’s who gave us a an hours golf lesson. I hope we weren’t too much of a “handicap” for them!
Congratulations to our class members Brenda and Anita who won the putting challenge and Ann who won the driving challenge, very impressive ladies!
The golf lesson was followed by a glass of fizz and a lovely lunch in the Nineteen Restaurant and Bar. We then had a stop off at Sandhill Garden Centre in Preston and even managed to bring a garden bench home with us on the bus!
I think we all really enjoyed the day and I will be planning the trip again with one of the other morning groups.
What a great day. Fitness, Fun and Friendship x
Hope you are all having a lovely Easter break. What fabulous weather we have had. Enjoy your Easter eggs then back to class next week to burn off those extra calories!
We all know exercise is good for you, but do you know how good? It will make you feel better, give you more energy, improve your mood, aid better sleep, make your skin look better and generally lift your spirits. Physically we all know exercise can help prevent weight gain and make you look better but there are so may other health benefits. Regular exercise helps to combat many health conditions and diseases such as stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, and many types of cancers. Remember exercise is not just to lose weight and look better it’s also important for your circulation and organ health. Our joints and muscle groups all benefit from regular exercise. How would we feel if we couldn’t move or exercise?
So let’s all commit to exercise and commit to your fitness and health. Try and find an exercise that you enjoy doing, that way you are more likely to stick to it. The fun stuff always wins!
Now that Spring is here and the nights are getting longer it’s a great time to get your motivation back. It’s not easy to commit to your fitness classes but you will always feel better once you have done an exercise session. So let’s think about moving more, lifting our spirits and lets all shape up for the summer.
Two years ago on 16th March 2020 we were all shocked when our exercise classes were forced to close due to the first lockdown. I was very saddened and stressed when this happened and missed you all terribly. The classes were very intermittent for the next couple of years during the lockdown rules.
We are now in a position to reclaim the privilege to join group exercise classes as we wish. Group exercise classes have so many benefits. You get to exercise with like minded people, you meet new friends, feel supported and encouraged, it’s great for your mental health and wellbeing.
I’m so pleased we are now fully up and running and all together again.
So don’t miss out! Enjoy your group fitness classes again!
Wow! 11 years ago on March 3rd 2011 we started our Zumba Classes in Cottingham. Thank you so much to all my Fitness Vibe class members past and present who have supported me for all this time. The classes are so much more than just an exercise class. It’s a place where lasting friendships are formed and we all support each other through the good times and the not so good times.
I’m very proud of the fact that the classes are still as vibrant as ever and some of you have been with me for all this time since that very first Zumba class 11 years ago!
Thank you ladies, here’s to Fitness, Fun and Friendship.
