NEWS & UPDATES
16 July 2021 - The Government intend to lift Covid restrictions from 19 July. Therefore there is no requirement for me to use a booking system or to limit class sizes. So from 19 July I am tweaking my timetable slightly and this means that I can re-introduce my Super Seniors circuit training class! Super Seniors is an advanced exercise class with minimal use of a chair and using various exercise equipment including dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, agility ladders etc. This class is not suitable for anyone who may use a walking aid or has significant problems with their balance. Contact Alison for more information.
20 June 2021 - Wow! It's been amazing that so many people are returning to my face-to-face classes. It's been fabulous to see some familiar faces and some brand new ones! For now, I'm limited to 15 places per class so I'm doing back to back classes at Lord St West Church Southport and Holy Trinity Church Formby on Tuesdays and Fridays. Have a look at my new timetable and then book your place on my online booking system here...
14 May 2021 - Woo Hoo! I can now confirm that starting from 17 May 2021 I will be doing weekly virtual and LIVE FACE-TO-FACE classes! Due to social distancing restrictions numbers will be limited and I will be using an online booking system. You can access the booking system here...
13 May 2021 - It's been a long wait, but face-to-face classes are returning very soon! Watch this space for confirmation of classes in Southport and Formby. Please be patient! I will also have to implement some Covid considerations which I will let you know nearer the time. See you soon!
10 June 2020 - Lockdown restrictions in many areas are being lifted. Unfortunately leisure facilities remain closed and that means that my usual Strength & Balance classes remain suspended. I have been watching the information coming from the government carefully and already have plans in place should we be given the go-ahead to restart exercise classes. This includes an updated risk assessment, hygiene standards, room layout and the provision of equipment.
My You Tube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIsM4J6mRyzTE8oj6rkixOw?view_as=subscriber) has a range of exercise videos that you can do at home. Some videos are hard so feel free to watch the video first before trying the exercises. I hope to see you all again soon and in the meantime, look after yourselves!
8 April 2020 - Government advice to stay at home as much as practicable remain in place. Even though it is permitted to go outside for food, health, work or exercise many older adults are reluctant to do so as they are justifiably concerned that they may contract coronavirus or unwittingly spread it. For those of you who are staying at home I have created a YouTube channel where you can access some workouts that you can do safely at home, no specialist equipment required! Here's the link to my YouTube channel. Enjoy!! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIsM4J6mRyzTE8oj6rkixOw/
27 March 2020 - If you are following government advice and staying at home, then you might be spending more time sat down than you usually do. It's important for your physical and mental health that you keep moving. I am putting together some exercise videos that can be done at home without any specialist equipment. The first set of videos are now available via an email link. Please use the 'Contact Us' link in the menu to send me your email address and I will send you a link to the videos. Keep well x Alison
17 March 2020 - Current government advice is that everyone should avoid gatherings and minimise social contact. Therefore, there will be NO exercise classes in Formby or Southport until further notice.
I'm really sorry about this as I know how important the exercise classes are to everyone, but I feel I have little choice to ensure your health and well-being.
I will update this page in the coming days and weeks.
And I will obviously keep you notified as and when the groups return.
Thank you for your continuing support and kind words. Stay safe x
