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.

Re-introduction of pre-lockdown prices for circuits classes (including for gym members)

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.

Gym is open

  • Whilst Covid restrictions are in place we will be opening the gym for longer hours than usual (9am-5pm every day)
  • Booking essential by ringing 811878
  • 1 hour sessions to include 15 mins cleaning time
  • New members can now be inducted and programmes updated by Jason. He can also offer personal training
  • Membership costs £22 per month (click here to download a Standing Order form)

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:

  • Use of hand sanitiser before and after
  • You must clean all equipment, including mats, after use with spray provided
  • Only one person or household on each set of equipment at once
  • You must not use the gym if you are at all unwell and let us know if you subsequently develop Covid 19 symptoms so we can inform other users
  • Take your programme home with you and bring it back each time to minimse handling

Jason’s Circuit Training and Line Dancing Classes

When are classes being held?

We plan to follow the Community Centre timetable so there will be three circuits sessions and two Line dancing sessions per week:

  • Tuesdays 12-1pm – Line Dancing for regulars (in sports hall)
  • Wednesdays 9-10am Lean Gym  – Circuits on Zoom
  • Thursdays 7.15-8.15pm Supercircuits (in sports hall, with YouTube version available)
  • Fridays 2-3pm Line Dancing for improvers (in sports hall) There is no session on Friday 2nd October.
  • Sundays 10.00-11.00 am Sunday Family Circuits on Zoom

Circuit Training Sessions

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 comms@charlburycommunitycentre.org.uk 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.

Line Dancing  Sessions

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: jason@charlburycommunitycentre.org.uk. 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

How do I register for the online sessions?

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.
