NEWSLETTER APRIL 2020
PLEASE GRAB A COFFEE AND READ. THIS IS IMPORTANT INFO
How exciting is it that we can all get back to what we all enjoy doing…living a normal life …How easy it has been to take everything and everyone for granted over the past year. I am so excited that, all being well the doors to Positive Fitness can open once again in May.
I have been in contact with many clients, either by Facebook , Zoom, text, email or good old fashioned phone calls. It has been great to keep in touch , but there are many clients I haven’t seen or heard from. I really hope you are well and healthy and looking forward to getting back to the studio
I have reimbursed some clients with class credit by way of refund to bank , but it has caused more confusion with the gym catch. As the time period has elapsed for credits, you may not receive a credit owed to you. I have tried to change the setting so you can use your credit. Please contact me if you cannot.
Also if you have received a cash refund already from me, I am trusting your honesty not to use any class credits. However, if it still gives you one, please message me. Sorry this is so confusing. I think will take some weeks to sort out
I am pleased to say I have a new supplier of good quality fitness clothes at a competitive price. I can order a number of items including vests, t shirts, leggings, sweat-tops, as well as other sportswear in different sizes and colours. The garments will be displayed in the reception If there are items in the studio you wish to try on and purchase immediately please message me. Items can be found on the website. Please click below
LOOK UNDER SPORTSWEAR ON THE MENU
I am sure you will all appreciate it has been extremely hard to keep my business viable over the last year. Prior to the pandemic, there were three payment options, Pay as you Go, Flexi-month and Monthly. With restricted numbers, and uncertainty probably for rest of the year, I can only offer Pay as you go, via gymcatch.
Clients can still book and pay for as many classes as they wish and classes will be released as previously, every month.
There is the option to pay for a bundle of classes, where you get ten sessions for the cost of nine.
I will be offering a FREE recorded library for clients who attend 8 times a month. I.e. attend 8 sessions in June and you get July Library FREE If you book 4 sessions for the two weeks in May, you will receive FREE recorded for June.
The recorded library will still be available to purchase by anyone at the cost of £25.
NEW CLASSES AND TIMETABLE
I have changed some days and times as well as names for the timetable. Also I am adding some new classes. Please note, ALL classes must have a minimum number to run and new ones will be trialled for a couple of months.

MARCH 2021 NEWSLETTER
Spring is in the air
A Positive Way Forward and
Mad March Challenge
The weather is changing and we are all feeling more positive. It has been a long hard period, but hopefully we can get back to a more normal life soon
Many of you have lost loved ones and I know too well of the pain. Life is so short and precious and we need to embrace it.
Physical health is so important for our mental health and I have been amazed at messages I have received from present clients, plus those who don’t know me, who have been doing my on line fitness challenges. The feeling that I am helping people cope with this madness is very rewarding
I am thinking of a new challenge for March to raise money for mental health. I’m thinking of a JustGiving site set up and clients can make a donation to take part in the challenge.
I am considering the following
31st March I will have been teaching 38 years (big party planned for 2023). If we can do a zoom on that day and we are looking at 38 reps that would be amazing
I’m thinking just ten different exercises each week for four weeks (total of 24 exercises). I will devise a programme for each day/week. (We won’t be starting at one😂 )For those on Facebook we could do this one day a week, so it’s upto you to practice daily. Every other day of each week the number of reps would double ,culminating in 38 on 31st March
If you are not on Facebook I could send you a video of all the exercises with an invite for zoom 31.3.21. The link and invite will only be sent out when a payment to just giving has been made. Who is up for this?
Studio opens week commencing Monday 17th May (positive thoughts)
Yes…all being well, I shall be opening the doors to the studio week commencing Monday 17th May
At this moment in time I do not know what restrictions will be, but I do intend to keep numbers at a more monitored level, with no more drop ins. Client have to book and pay up front and classes can be booked for the month
As a result of the pandemic and being forced to close, I am aware that some clients have class credits. It may be easier to reimburse as there are so many I have a record here of credits owed but please can you check again what you are owed and I will reimburse
On line and Recorded Library
The on line and pre recorded library has been really well received and I am so grateful for all the support from clients. It really has been a huge support to my business
I have gained new clients who will still continue to use the library. With over 50 workouts including Pilates Stretch Hiit Yoga Gentle Fitness Dancefit Body Tone Fab Abs and Aerobics, there really is something for everyone. I am pleased to say this library will continue to be available even after lockdown. The cost Is £25 per month
For clients who attend classes at the studio, there will be a package available to include the recorded library depending on attendance
I am thrilled to tell you that
Becky and Amy (Caci) are pleased to welcome clients back from week commencing Monday 12th April. They can be contacted on 07854 821505 (Amy) and 07481 147688 (Becky)
