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.

The Gym is open! (by appointment only.)

  • Opening hours 9am-1pm 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, 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

We are now experimenting with  “Hybrid” classes for the Wednesday and Thursday sessions. So you can turn up in person to do the class, but you can also do it at home via Zoom if you prefer – or if you live in far flung places. Line Dancing will all be in the sports hall from 18th May onwards and at altered times.

When are classes being held?

We are now offering five exercise/circuits classes and two Line dancing sessions  every week all on Zoom:

  • Mondays 9-945am – Body Workout (a toning class aimed at working: arms, shoulders, legs and abs)
  • Tuesdays 12-1pm – Line Dancing for regulars IN SPORTS HALL
  • Wednesdays 9-10am Lean Gym  – Circuits DROP IN TO DO IN PERSON, OR JOIN US ONLINE
  • Thursdays 6.30-7.30pm Supercircuits DROP IN TO DO IN PERSON, OR JOIN US ONLINE
  • Fridays 9-9.50am – Tone Zone (targeting legs, bums, tums and finishes with pure core work)
  • Fridays 1.30-2.30pm Line Dancing for beginners IN SPORTS HALL
  • Sundays 10.00-11.00 am Sunday Family Circuits

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  (it’s free) or alternatively, simply click on the invite and follow the instructions, just before you want to join the session. For circuits, you will need dumbbells or weights of some kind (water filled milk containers are fine)  and a mat. This is the link to all classes – just click on this a few minutes before the class start time.

Is there a charge?

  • For Circuits and exercise classes, we charge £7 per session per household  – payable by Paypal using the link below. Please click on the drop down menu first to choose your class.
  • Line Dancing classes are £5

Some people prefer to pay directly into our bank account – this is fine as long as you put the class name in the reference section. The details are: The Thomas Gifford Trust, s/c 090129, account: 46347925. If you are in financial difficulties, please email and we will waive the fee.

Why not have a go at Line Dancing? It’s good for the body and the mind! There are two classes a week. Tuesday’s class is for regulars who have been Line dancing for some time. The Friday class will be aimed at total beginnners from 21st May, when it goes back indoors, so it’s a great time to take this up.
