WelI hope you have had a good summer break. If you haven’t had your holiday yet, I do hope it is warmer than it has been here!
Yes it is nearly time to go back to school, and that is normally the time the studio gets busy again, although numbers have been pretty good over the last month, which is traditionally pretty quiet. So well done for keeping the fitness up. There is never an excuse if you are around, as the timetable offers a variety of classes throughout the year. Occasionally, I have no option but to cancel classes if cover cannot be made and I do hope you appreciate this. Jess is away for the latter part of this month now and will not return until September, so please check the timetable for August/September

DANCE SOSA FITNESS
Very excited to let you know that a new workout based on Latin American and other dance steps, but set to catchy music will be starting in the NEW YEAR. I have been on the training course which is known as SOSA DANCE FITNESS The day session will be Tuesday’s at 10.15am and Monday’s at 6.15pm and Wednesday at 7.15pm. The class is 45 minute long. Classes will start Tuesday 3rd January , Wednesday 4th and Monday 9th January. This class is low impact and ideal for everyone. Fun workout !
please note, the current BLOCKFIT class will run Wednesday 7.15pm on Wednesday 7th and 14th. I am trying to juggle classes around and will inform you when BF runs in the New Year. However, on the back of the SOSA DANCE introduction, I have been inundated with enquiries. I therefore, have to take this into account and it makes sense to run it on Wednesdays at 7.15pm to fit in with demand. I will make a final decision after the taster night on 21st as to where BF will go on the timetable
Please view the below link (note this is a you tube link, so NO VIRUS)
There are two taster evenings Monday 19th and Wednesday 21st December, but they are now FULL. However ,bookings can be made on line for January. Please note, in order to secure your place, payment MUST be made prior to the class
All classes as normal until Thursday 22nd December. (Morning and afternoon classes run as normal but no BLT on the night)
Friday 23rd December – Monday 2nd January – STUDIO CLOSED
All classes as normal Tuesday 3rd January 2017

I hope you have enjoyed the classes at the studio during 2016. I pride myself on my professionalism and dedication to my clients and although this has been a very difficult year, I know I have always given my clients 100% and I am extremely grateful for the loyalty and support that has been shown to me
I was very fortunate to have four amazing instructors cross my path at the beginning of the year and I wish to thank Julie, Harri, Vourn and Jess for their excellent teaching and professionalism I know you have enjoyed their own style of teaching and they are a great asset to the studio
I wish you all a very happy and merry Christmas

August is the quietest month of the year at the studio, but the classes have all been running and it has been great to see so many clients turn up every day. I am planning to take some time off at the beginning of September for a few days and then I will be having a week off beginning of October. Thankfully, I have cover for most of the days I’m away.
There are a few changes to the timetable for September (classes and times, so please be aware of your classes)
I am also pleased to introduce a new young instructor onto the team at Positive Fitness. Jess is well qualified and has been in the fitness industry for a few years.

Firstly, massive thanks to everyone who has kindly supported me over the last couple of weeks. Thank you for all your kind messages, cards and flowers. I have been inundated with so many good wishes and really appreciate you taking the time to offer your comforting words to me,
My mum was an incredible lady, so spirited and the most selfless lady I have ever know. She lived an amazing life and loved her family so much. I consider myself blessed to have had her as a mum. As well as my dad, she supported me completely when I lost my darling Clive and was so proud when I I opened my studio. Her funeral is this Tuesday and I know she would now be telling me to get back to my classes and my loyal supporting clients. So I will be back this Friday 29th April.
I would like to say a huge thanks to Ange, Vourn and Harri for covering those extra classes Without these professional instructors, who have managed to fit my classes in as well as running their own classes, my studio would have been closed and that was the last thing I wanted to do.
I appreciate there were five classes that I had to cancel, but hope you understand
