So who is Kelly?!

Kelly Lindley

I'm very proud to say that the HA fitness team is growing, and we're delighted to have Kelly Lindley join us.

We first met Kelly when she started coming to Buggyfit in Wimbledon Park about 18 months ago. Since then she has re-trained as a Personal Trainer, and we're pleased to say that she is now actually running some of our classes and one-to-one sessions for us.

Kelly has a huge passion for all types of fitness, and has a strong focus on weight training and body building. She's lots of fun to be around and will be bringing tons of great new ideas to our sessions. She loves the buzz exercise gives her, and is keen to share that with you all!

Not only is she a Personal Trainer, Kelly is also an amazing make-up artist. So if you've got a big day coming up, or would like some top tips, do ask her about how she can help you.

RESOLUTION SOLUTION!

You can do it fitness

Many of us make fitness resolutions at the beginning of the year, but find that by the end of January the initial enthusiasm and passion begins to fade.

If this sounds like you, it's time to do something different. Get a fresh approach.

It's common to start the year full of ambition. Only to find that that life just gets in the way, and you feel like you're falling off the wagon. To make your resolutions last, the changes you make have to comfortably fit within your current lifestyle. What do you need to do to get results without too much upheaval?

You also need to honestly accept your current health and fitness levels. Do a sanity check on what actually needs fixing. Then, look positively at all of the things you can change, rather than negatively lingering over the problems you can't resolve.

Make a realistic plan that’s sustainable and achievable. Get some advice from friends or professionals to get you on the right track and stay motivated.

Why not sign-up for an HA fitness class pass or some personal training sessions to keep you motivated? We've also got some great BootCamps coming up! All the links for more info are below, or drop me a line.

Remember, if you change nothing, nothing will change.

Best wishes

Welcome Antonio!

Antonio Marakovic.jpeg

We're really pleased to welcome Antonio Marakovic to the HA team!

After qualifying with the YMCA as a Personal Trainer, Antonio has spent the past couple of months with the HA Team learning about our clients and classes.

Antonio is brimming with fresh ideas & has lots of new moves to share. He is also incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about fitness, health and training. You can read more about Antonio on our website.

Many of you will have already met him at our BootCamp and Fit In The Park sessions. Here are a few of the things you have said:

"He is really good and I really enjoyed it!"
"Love the different stretches he did at the end."
"He was very motivational in keeping us going in dreadful rain and wind at 6.15am!"
"He demonstrated the exercises well and gave lots of alternatives for those wanting lower impact."

Antonio will be teaching our Monday evening class and many of our early morning sessions.

Heather's Fit Kit Drills - New September Dates

We've got some new dates available for our very popular Fit Kit Drills sessions with Heather.

These intense workouts combine TRX Suspension Training with the ViPR.

You'll use the TRX (long straps that hang from a tree or post) to add an extra challenge to your regular bodyweight exercises. Develop your strength, power & core stability whilst having a bit of suspended fun!

Take on the ViPR (not so humble weighted rubber tubes) & you'll be performing big dynamic movements that build core strength, sculpt the arms, legs & bum whilst burning a huge amount of calories.

Heather's sessions use both pieces of kit to create a unique all over body challenge. Limited to a small group, you’ll receive highly personalized attention & get maximum results for your time & effort.

Give us your drive & determination. We’ll give you sweat & smiles!

Where & When:

Tue 16 Sep - 6.15am to 7.00am - Wimbledon Park
Tue 23 Sep - 6.15am to 7.00am - South Park Gardens
Thu 2 Oct - 6.15am to 7.00am - Wimbledon Park (note this is Thu not Tue)

Cost: £8.50 per class

As numbers are difficult for us to predict, we're asking everyone to pre-book each session in advance. Sorry, we won't be able to take payments on the day & class passes won't be valid. These sessions are non-transferable & non-refundable.

Book now or get in touch to find out more.

Ruunn!

"If you want to become the best runner you can be, start now. Don’t spend the rest of your life wondering if you can do it."  Priscilla Welch

Did you watch the London Marathon & think, hmm that could be me next year? Do you run but need some help with technique? Have you been running for years, but never seem to get any faster? Are you a beginner who needs a bit of motivation to run more?

Then get in touch. We know the perfect person to help.

Our Trainer, Claire, ran a personal best a couple of weeks ago at the London Marathon. She did it in 2hrs 45 mins & was 6th non-elite woman across the finish line!

Claire's not only a formidable runner, she's an amazing Personal Trainer & Running Coach. She'll first observe & evaluate your running & then work with you to improve your efficiency & speed. Not only will this help you to become a better runner, it'll also reduce your chances of getting injured.

Don't be intimidated by her swiftness, Claire is brilliant at helping all levels of runners from beginners through to advanced.

Tempted? Get in touch to find out about our personal training or small group sessions with Claire. Or, we've still got a few places left on our Saturday morning Running BootCamp: Drills, Hills & Skills.
