We offer gym facilities, featuring mobile gym equipment such as a treadmills, rowing machines, exercise bikes, handweights and exercise balls.
The gym is open every morning, weekdays 8.30am – 1pm on weekdays and weekends 9am-1pm. However it’s busy on Wednesdays from 9-10am when the LeanGym class takes place there, so you might be advised to come after 10am.
The price is £22 per month payable in advance by standing order and the gym can be used as often as you like once you are signed up. This fee includes a compulsory initial induction from our trained staff Jason or Jenny. Help with personalised programmes is offered for £10.
Jason, our highly experienced personal trainer, can give you individual, personal training sessions tailored to your needs and level of fitness and help you to improve and get where you want to be. He is usually available on Sundays 11.30-1pm and on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings by appointment. The best thing is to discuss your requirements with Jason by phoning the centre (01608 811878) or his mobile (07919 018977) or emailing him on: firstname.lastname@example.org
The price is £30 per one-hour session for gym members and £40 for non-members.
Why not give a gift of an hour of personal training as a gift? Vouchers are available from reception.
Do you enjoy a game of Scrabble? Would you like some new people to play with? We have an afternoon once a month where people can come and play. The next session is on Tuesday 8th Oct 2.30-5pm. Cost only £2. In the meantime there are two Scrabble sets at the Centre, which you can use at any time for a game with friends.
Congratulations to Anna Cherry, who recently won gold medal in the English Open Pickleball championships in Nottingham, over 50s category - (though dare I say she could have been entered in a higher age group!) Anna said: "This win was only possible because [a] Charlbury Community Centre was built, [b] Vijay started the Pickleball sessions and [c] many people give their time to help run the centre!" Like most of us she had never heard of Pickleball a couple of years ago, but it's a great game for people of all abilities and ages. If you fancy giving it a go, find out more here. We are very proud of our champion!
There will be a series of 3 talks on Tuesdays 22 & 29th Oct and 5th Nov 2-4pm by Juliet Heslewood entitled "Gauguin - An Adventurous Life". Click here for more details. These talks were very popular last year. Don't miss them!
The gym now opens at 8.30am, rather than 9am on weekdays. The rest of the centre won't be open until 9am. Remember also that on Wednesday mornings there is a class in the gym between 9 and10am, so it's best to avoid that time. Weekend opening remains 9am-1pm. Thanks to our staff (espeically Jenny and Jason) for getting in extra early to do this - it takes quite a while to get the gym set up.
We'd love to reunite you with your possessions! Most items will be kept for 14 days. Valuables such as watches, jewellery and expensive sports equipment will be kept for 28 days. Each Wednesday between 1 - 5pm unclaimed items will be displayed in the centre and can be purchased for a nominal amount. After this, they will be given to charity.
There will be no quiz in August - too many people are away. The quiz night is back on Wed 25th September, set by Rob Hemingway. The café and bar open at 7.15pm for a prompt start at 7.45pm. Priced only £5 per player. More details here. Many thanks to Gordon Cutting for doing us an excellent quiz in July!
