Learning to Use Exercise to Stay Healthy and Fit

If you want to stay healthy and fit through exercise, then we have lots of classes for you.

Classes are tailored to meet your needs, grouped on ability and available for those with particular needs, including some single sex classes. 

Health Declaration 

If you have a medical condition, please refer to the Course Outline before enrolling to make sure that the course is suitable for you. It is important that you inform your tutor of any medical condition at the first class. In some circumstances your tutor may require you to provide evidence that you are fit to take part in the class or suggest an alternative, more appropriate option.

Health and Safety requirements demand that all learners participating in fitness classes must complete the warm up and learners participating in health classes must be present for instructions on safe working practices.  Therefore, latecomers who miss the first part of the session will be refused entry.

Level of Classes

Fitness Classes
Classes within the fitness programme are generally offered at beginner, intermediate or ‘all’ levels. Remember, even if you exercise on a regular basis, you may wish to attend a beginner level course if you are new to that particular style or format of class.

Beginners
This level is suitable for beginners or those with limited experience of the class style/format. Classes at this level will focus on developing the correct exercise technique.This level is also ideal for those who have not participated in that style for a long time and wish to refresh their skills.

Intermediate
This level is aimed at people with good knowledge of the exercise style / format who want to improve and develop their skills and/or challenge their fitness level further. These classes will require a greater awareness of the class vocabulary than the beginner level courses.

All Levels
‘All Level’ courses are open to all and tutors will offer modifications to enable everyone to participate fully based on their experience and ability.
