I hope you’re all starting to feel happier now that we have a road map to a proposed end of Lockdown and a gradual easing of restrictions. It’s been a tough ride hasn’t it for all of us for different reasons.
Gyms and Leisure Facilities won’t be opening until 12th April and studios a bit later.
Had your vaccine? Hope it didn’t make you too ill afterwards. I had high fever for 24 hours. Let’s hope everyone gets it and the world becomes a safter place
Here’s an update for March:
The class timetable will be similar to February with the following changes including the new classes ‘Stretch Release Relax’ on Fridays, STRONG on Tuesdays and the return of a SATURDAY WORKOUT.
PILATES Tuesday 10.15am will start at 10.30am from 2nd March
Are you getting enough cardiovascular exercise? The guidelines (at any age) is 150 mins of moderate aerobic (cardio) exercise weekly. It’s best to vary your workouts and what better way to do this than to add the following classes to your schedule. Each class will give you 30 minutes in your heartrate training range and approximately 3,000-4,000 steps! Don’t have enough credits? Drop in to one of the following classes for just 50% drop-in fee with discount code SGT50 i.e. £4 per class (wowsers!).
Wednesdays 9-9.45am: Step Aerobics using a 4”-6” step (can also be done without a step as a Low Impact Aerobic class)
Fridays 9-9.45am: Low Impact Aerobics and the new and very popular LIIT class (Low Impact Interval Training)
STRETCH RELEASE RELAX

Feedback from this class has been overwhelming and so I’m continuing to offer it throughout March at a discounted rate. An Add-On Membership to SRR will be £20/month and £8 drop-in. Sale Pilates Members will get 50% discount (code SGT50). As a ‘thank-you’ to those of you who have kindly taken the time to write me a Review I’d like to continue to offer you this class to you for FREE and a month’s SRR membership has been added to your account.

This new strength training class on Tuesday mornings will continue during March
with Series 2. (Series 1 videos 1-4 need to be completed first). It’s so important to add strength training to your workout programme to maintain muscle mass as you get older and also to ensure that your bones remain strong too and don’t become victim of the silent – and often deadly – disease Osteoporosis.
In Series 2 we will slowly increase the intensity of the sessions with the following techniques:
- More exercises per muscle group
- Increased resistance by varying band length, strands (double vs single)
- 2 Sets per exercise instead of the single set in Series 1
You can access this class by purchasing a STRONG Membership (£20pm). Sale Pilates Members pay 50% with discount CODE SGT50. Click below to join:
Note: If you’d like to join this class in March you will need to have worked through Series 1 (4 videos) which is available in the Membership Site.

or you can purchase all 4 videos in Series 1 at the discounted rate of £10 (promo code STRONG50)

Saturday 13th: Dumbbells

Saturday 27th: Kettlebells
Apologies for delays in uploading class recordings over the past few weeks. I have been trying out some new software and soon class recordings will be uploaded in with better quality and in ‘Speaker View’. This will make it more enjoyable for doing a class on ‘catch up’.
Do you still want to be able to view recordings in Gallery View where you’ll be able to review your technique? Send me a message in the Whats App group if you would like to continue to view these.
I’m planning on doing an outdoor Pilates class in Walkden Gardens when it gets warmer. Let me know if you’re interested.
Let me know (in the Whats App Group) what and when if you’d like to have some more educational sessions.
My Outdoor Studio is now open for Anchor Point Training sessions. This is a great, fun way to stay fit using fabric resistance bands, TRX type straps and wall anchors. Sign up for a FREE 20 min TRIAL on Tuesdays and Saturdays 2-4pm. Whats App me if you’d like to sign in.
Meanwhile keep your spirits up guys. Spring is just around the corner – and our new ‘freedom’ whatever its going to look like.
Stay safe, keep moving and think positively
