    Brand new for Summer 2021 - M1ND is an incredible class that will help you both inside and outside of the gym. This functional mobility class is designed to compliment an active lifestyle. M1ND draws inspiration from sports, yoga, calisthenics and rehabilitation and each unique session can include one or more of these elements. The central theme is connection between mind and movement. It's the perfect class for those who need to take more care of their bodies, whether that's aches and pains from too much running, too much sitting or whether you've noticed you don't quite have the same squat depth or overhead movement that you used to have. This class is suitable for beginners and those anxious about their fitness levels but also for those who participate in demanding sports regimes that need to spend more time on their recovery.



    PiYo
    • Current course ends 27th October 2021.
    • Eight week course starts Wednesday 10th November 2021 and finishes 5th January 2022 (no class on 29th December 2021), 6:30pm - 7:25pm, Epiphany Primary School, Muscliff, BH9 3PE, £48. Booking confirmed upon payment in full. Booking confirmed upon payment in full. You will require your own Yoga/Pilates mat. Please email info@fitnessquest.co.uk to secure your place. Online sign in is required for attendance each week.

    PiYo is a group fitness class inspired by Pilates and Yoga. It's a full body workout designed to improve your strength and flexibility. Although inspired by Pilates and Yoga, forget everything you know about these techniques... PiYo is a whole new format in it's own right. I've never taught anything quite like it, you can certainly feel it challenging your muscles in ways you've never felt them work before! Putting together our PiYo poses, we are constantly flowing from one move to another, ensuring you don't stay still. This makes PiYo not only great for strength and flexibility but also calorie burn (there will be lots of sweat)!

    During a PiYo live class, we'll complete a series of tracks such as a warm up, heat building, lower body, full body fusion etc. All of these tracks are done to an upbeat soundtrack, so no whale music, as lovely as it is ;-) It's all low impact (with the option to add in a few jumps), and involves no weights, just your own body.

    SCULPT & BURN
    • Current course ends 27th October 2021.
    • Eight week course starts Wednesday 10th November 2021 and finishes 5th January 2022 (no class on 29th December 2021), 7:35pm-8:20pm, Epiphany Primary School, Muscliff, BH9 3PE, £48. Booking confirmed upon payment in full. During Covid-19 restrictions, you will be required to bring a weighted object with you each week (e.g. dumbbells/kettlebells/backpack). Please email info@fitnessquest.co.uk to secure your place. Online sign in is required for attendance each week. 
    Most weeks, you will still get a few rounds of HIIT (high intensity interval training) in each class followed by a variety of strength and conditioning exercises which vary weekly. Combining these two types of training styles will maximise all round results. This class is ideal for those with a moderate to high fitness level and people looking for a physical challenge.

    BOOKING INFORMATION

    Course places must be booked in advance and your place can only be held once payment in full has been received. Bookings are non refundable and non transferrable.

    July, August & September Class Timetable

     


    Covid-19 Update

    From 19th July 2021, legal restrictions in England were removed, however Fitness Quest members are still being asked to comply with certain precautions, you can read about these here.

    Changes to the summer timetable

    From Monday 16th August 2021 I am suggesting that we trial M1ND in place of Monday's HIIT class. M1ND will focus on many of the aspects of our fitness routine we often push to the back of our priorities list, such as balance, flexibility and mobility. All of which help to improve our posture, core strength, ability to perform to higher standards, recover faster and reduce the risk of injury. This is the perfect opportunity to get back to fitness classes if you're feeling anxious about your fitness levels or have been generally struggling with injuries or exercising in the heat. It is a much gentler class than PiYo but is still faster paced than traditional Pilates, although you would never be expected to progress if you're enjoying holding a stretch (just stick with it and enjoy it). If you're interested in this, please see the information in the timetable below and get in touch to book your place.

      IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE - FREEDOM DAY...


      CLASS UPDATE 19th July 2021

      From 19th July 2021 the legal restrictions surrounding Covid-19 have been removed, however it is important that we still take reasonable actions to ensure the safety of all of those who attend classes, as well as the wider community. This includes the mental wellbeing of individuals and respecting individual choices as we move out of a very difficult 16-month period.

      For this reason, at least for the time being, to ensure everyone still feels comfortable attending classes many of the precautions will remain in place.

      Face coverings

      • Face coverings during exercise have never been mandatory, however at all other times, both entering the hall and leaving the hall we were required to wear a face covering. Although the legal requirement to wear a face mask has now been removed, it is still expected that people wear a face covering in enclosed spaces (when not exercising). For this reason, access to the hall will remain limited and you will only be permitted entry shortly before the class begins and be expected to leave as soon as possible after the class ends, this means members will not need to wear a face covering, unless they choose to do so. It may be useful to have one handy in case you need to use the toilet. For any members doing back-to-back classes it is recommended that you enjoy some fresh air outside the hall until your second class is due to begin.

      Actions still required by class attendees

      • Continue to sign in to each class online, this acts as a fire register as well as helping me to plan effective classes which maintain social distancing. This will also remain to act as a method of registering your details for NHS Test and Trace.
      • Members should not attend classes if they test positive or begin to display Covid-19 symptoms. If you have had a close contact with someone who has Covid-19 or have otherwise been told to self-isolate, you will need to refrain from attending class. 

      • Members should maintain social distancing from all other participants (unless from the same household).

      • Please continue to bring your own equipment to sessions.

      • It is recommended members do not share any fitness equipment and continue to use the hand sanitiser available.

      • Respect other attendees personal space.

      What Fitness Quest will be doing to minimise the risk of Covid-19

      • Continue to limit the maximum number of participants to each class.
      • Continue to ensure common touch points are kept clean.
      • Continue to ensure good ventilation.
      • Continue to offer hand sanitiser.
      • Continue to risk assess and remain up to date with the Covid-19 risk, this may involve the addition of further safety precautions in the future.
      • Continue to maintain NHS Test and Trace records.
      • Continue to limit access to the hall before and after classes to ensure time spent in an enclosed safe when not exercising is at a minimum.

      What is changing

      • Gradually, we will begin to reduce allocating you your places within the hall. We have been doing this to ensure a minimum of 2m distance between all those signed in. We tend to fill spaces furthest away from the entrance, to avoid people having to walk past one another. Please continue to try and fill the spaces as best as possible and remember to maintain 2m distance from other members, whilst the restrictions have officially been lifted, please consider that other members may not feel comfortable with you being close to them and I want to ensure everyone feels safe and can enjoy exercise.
      • From 16th August 2021 it is expected that any adult who is fully vaccinated will not need to self-isolate following close contact with someone who has COVID-19. You will still need to take a PCR test and self-isolate if the result is positive. Until this date, please continue to self-isolate if required to do so.

      Please get in touch with me if you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the above.

      Thank you again for your understanding and patience, for your own reference, this latest guidance has been based on the CIMSPA recommendations for the fitness industry.

      IMPORTANT REMINDER & June/July Class Timetable

       



      IMPORTANT REMINDER - Please Read

      I know most of you are fed up with my constant nagging but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE ensure you continue to adhere to the policies I am required by law to put into place. I am honestly not asking you to sign in or wear a mask to be awkward, in order for me to be able to keep classes open, I MYSELF have had to sign and agree to a set of rules which ensures classes remain safe for all of you, myself and other users of the hall whilst at the same time trying to limit the spread of Covid-19.

      Please also remember that it's not just me, other local businesses are returning to a new normal and are having to implement strict rules on their customers is common place. When small business are found to be in breach of Covid-19 restrictions they could be facing fines of £1000's, something which after the past year, would simply end their business for good (we are human and suffer with anxiety too). They are not asking you to comply to be rude, so please do understand that the measures in place are imposed upon us during the pandemic. I have tried to find a balance of reminding you all without bordering on harassment, including providing step by step actions required for attending classes; please find a way to ensure you can adhere to the Fitness Quest Covid-19 Policies. Should you have any questions about the measures in place and what is expected of members during these times, please get in touch. 

      All members must now sign in online before each class. Sign in is our legal obligation to fulfil Test and Trace protocol, it also satisfies my contract with the venue to maintain a fire register and also helps me to gauge class numbers so that I can allocate spaces each week which ensure social distancing is maintained. Please can I once again request that each of you set a recurring reminder on your phones (or something else) to ensure you sign in to class, you can save the sign in address www.bookwhen.com/fitnessquest to your favourites or as a link within the reminder/calendar event. Should you forget to sign in, you can sign in once you arrive at class using your phone, I have set the latest sign in time to 15 minutes after the start time to cater for such circumstances. I never want to be put in a position where I have to turn someone away, but please know that I am legally obliged to ensure everyone adheres to the policy in place. 

      Please can I also request that you continue to wear your face coverings up until the point we begin exercising, these should also be worn when making trips to the toilet and leaving the premises (again this is not me setting the rules).

      Finally, please do try to arrive at class on time, if you have signed in online I will wait a reasonable time for members to arrive before starting, please be aware that I currently lock the main entrance once class begins to prevent passers by from entering the hall as this would potentially breach social distancing guidelines.

      Thank you for reading the above, now on a lighter note, here is the June & July class timetable...

      June and July Fitness Classes

      Classes available include HIIT, Kettlercise, PiYO, Sculpt & Burn are listed below in alphabetical order.

      High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is always in the media for its fat burning and body shaping benefits, and I've always incorporated it into many of my classes. Usually combined with my bootcamps or as a part of my popular sculpt and burn class, I've now decided to give HIIT its own slot on my timetable. I offer varying difficulty levels to adapt to all fitness ranges, so each and every one of you can work to your own ability. Performing body weight exercises, you can choose the high impact or low impact options and everyone will leave having had a great workout. It's also only a 30 minute class, so a great option for anyone looking for a quick blast.

        During a PiYo live class, we'll complete a series of tracks such as a warm up, heat building, lower body, full body fusion etc. All of these tracks are done to an upbeat soundtrack, so no whale music, as lovely as it is ;-) It's all low impact (with the option to add in a few jumps), and involves no weights, just your own body.
