You may be interested to know how our air handling system works. It is very efficient and it does not recyle the air. It draws in fresh air as described here. This is an important point for your safety in these times.
When lockdown started and we began to offer circuits over Zoom, we tried to make it as cheap as possible for everybody when we thought you needed it most. We were grateful to people for keeping up their gym memberships and offered them free online circuits classes as a compensation for the lack of gym facilities. But, as you will appreciate, we cannot afford this for long and now that the gym has re-opened, we need to ask all of those who attend circuits classes on Zoom or in the hall to pay for them. We have also put the price of all the circuits classes back to the usual price of £7 for adults and £3 for juniors/students (but in the case of the Zoom classes, this will still be per household, not per individual).
If you have been financially affected by the Coronavirus, please do get in touch though, as we can offer some discretionary concessions through our benevolent fund.
We have set up two sets of gym equipment in the TG room, spaced out sufficiently so that two individuals or households can use them at one time. A risk assessment has been done and strict hygiene guidelines apply, such as:
We plan to follow the Community Centre timetable so there will be three circuits sessions and two Line dancing sessions per week:
We are now doing two circuits sessions a week via Zoom (Wednesday and Sunday mornings) and one in the main hall (Thursday evening – 6.30-7.30pm). Instructions and invitations to this week’s Zoom classes can be found below. Simply click the link between a few minutes before the class starts to join it.
Thursday class. Due to popular demand this is back to 6.30-7.30pm for now. Once football restarts we will have to revert to 7pm, but we don’t know when that will be. Everybody who books and pays for this class through our website bookings page here, is entitled to a YouTube version of a class free of charge (the YouTube class must be done between 6 and 8pm on the Thursday). If you want the link to this session, you will need to email email@example.com once you have booked onto the class and the link will be emailed back to you. This on line offer is a trial through September to see how numbers build.
Why not have a go at Line Dancing? It’s good for the body and the mind! There are two classes a week. Both classes are in the sports hall again. Tuesday’s class at noon – this is for regulars who have been Line dancing for some time. Fridays at 2pm is a class aimed at people who are relatively new to line dancing. Feel free to email Jason with questions and requests of dances you’d like to go over again: firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost is £3 per class for over 65s and £5 for young people! Please pay for your class at reception on arrival, preferably by contactless card.
For those who are coming to the classes and would like to pratise the dances, here is a link to YouTube videos of Jason teaching them: Jason’s line dancing catalogue

You will need to download “Zoom” onto your computer/tablet/phone to see the session. This is really easy and takes about 1 minute. You can do this before by signing up to Zoom clicking on the link https://zoom.us/pricing (it’s free) or alternatively, simply click on the invite and follow the instructions, just before you want to join the session. You will need dumbbells, weights of water filled bottles and a mat.

These are one-to-one gym sessions over Zoom with Jason, lasting about 20-30 minutes. Jason can give you advice on what you can do at home, with whatever equipment you have available and update your personal gym plan. Hopefully he will motivate you to keep up with your fitness regime!
This is free to gym members who have kept up their subscriptions (thank you if you have been able to do this!). For non-gym members or for a new programme, the price is £10.
A slot with Jason can be booked on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday afternoons 1-5pm and Wednesdays between 10am and 1pm. To book contact email@example.com. To contact Jason directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jason can also do an hour’s Personal Training for anybody, priced £25.
