Following the address from Boris Johnson last night, announcing a new "national lockdown", we want to reassure you that we aren't going anywhere! Our winter timetable will continue in full as planned via Zoom, but please do contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
During this time we may be experiencing additional challenges and heartaches and protecting our mental and physical health is more important than ever. We are here for you. We really are.
We're really looking forward to welcoming everyone back to classes this week. We begin our full timetable of classes from today and we hope to see you soon.
With a new year comes a fresh start and, whatever 2021 throws at us, we will continue to work together and support each other.
We're busy planning our Christmas Quiz and it would be lovely to see everyone at 8pm on next Wednesday (16th December). This is a FREE session and everyone is welcome - current members, members who haven't Zoomed yet and anyone in your household! Contact Lorna for the login details.
Also, just to remind everyone that the last classes before Christmas will be on Friday 18th December, but we will be back with our full timetable on Monday 4th January 2021. Let's start the new year with some much needed optimism together!
Don't forget that Potters Bar Radio will be airing their Sounds of the Community show featuring our very own Fitness Family this afternoon at 4pm!
It will be repeated at 11am this Saturday (21st November) and if you aren't able to listen live then contact Lorna within the week and we can share the show with you electronically!
As we have had said many times, this year has been challenging and full of uncertainty, but during this year a really wonderful thing has happened too. Our little community has blossomed and we have been able to help and support each other unlike ever before. It therefore feels appropriate that we should take some time to mark the festive season together and celebrate. So make yourself a hot drink, or pour a glass of wine, and join us for some festive cheer on Wednesday 16th December!
We will be virtually meeting from 8pm on Wednesday 16th December and if you are free it would be lovely to see you. Fancy dress, black tie and pyjamas equally welcome!
This is a FREE session and everyone is welcome! Contact Lorna for the login details.
Like the rest of the UK, we are really disappointed that we find ourselves heading back into another national lockdown. This year has been challenging for everyone in different ways, but a number of members of our "pre-pandemic" seated exercise classes have been in contact to share their experiences of 2020; we have been told of the increased isolation and reduced physical mobility experienced as a result of all the various lockdown and social distancing measures. So we have made the decision to try and do more to support our wider community.
We are therefore launching a new live streamed "Zoom" Seated Pilates Exercise class and would invite everyone to a FREE trial session at 11.30am on Monday 9th November ("virtual" doors open at 11.15am). This is open to existing and new members! Contact us for more information, details and instructions.
We are delighted to have been invited to take part in Potters Bar Radio's show "Sounds from our Community" in November 2020! This weekly radio programme is a combination of member contributions and music dedications from local groups and clubs.
It would be great if as many of us can take part as possible and support this new local radio, as a means of reaching out to our local community, during such challenging and isolating times.
We had such great feedback from our recent catch up, that we have been asked to schedule another one! So make yourself a hot drink, or pour a glass of wine, and join us this Wednesday evening for a chat!
We will be virtually meeting from 7.30pm on Wednesday 21st October and if you are free it would be lovely to see you. This is a FREE session and everyone is welcome! Contact Lorna for the login details.
As things have changed so much this year, we would like to update our records, so if possible, please could all members complete an updated online screening form. It will literally take a minute; just click the button below to take you there!
It's vital right now that we take care of both our mental and physical health. It's important to remember that these go hand-in-hand. It can be a real boost for us to stay in contact and enjoy regular chats before our classes, knowing that we are all there for each other in this community we have created is hugely valuable.
We will be virtually meeting from 11.30am on Wednesday 7th October and if you are free it would be lovely to see you. This is a FREE session and everyone is welcome! Contact Lorna for the login details.
We are excited about kick starting the new Autumn term today; there is Fitness Pilates at 10am, then 30 Minute Fat Burning at 6pm, followed by Abs Blast at 6.45pm.
Let's get moving!
There have been 4 months since we had to stop our face to face classes and after nearly 3 months of Zooming, we seem to be getting through this challenging time together!
The new autumn timetable will be in place from 31st August and it has been developed taking all of the recent questionnaire responses into account and we hope that every member will find classes that they can attend. All the classes will be via Zoom initially, but this will be reviewed when we are in a position to resume face to face classes safely.
Following feedback from members, suggesting that the Daily Tasks are no longer needed as they are now taking part in Zoom classes, we will plan to cease sending these out at the current time. The final Daily Task will be sent this Friday (17 July).
It is fantastic that so many of our members are now taking advantage of the unlimited classes in the monthly subscription and enjoying multiple classes each week! It does feel like the end of a chapter, as the Daily Tasks were introduced at the very beginning of "lockdown", but it is exciting to see what our new chapter will bring.
Thank you to those members who took part in a full audio test this morning! We are excited to be trialling the new system at this evening's Fitness Pilates class.
As ever, any feedback is always welcome!
Thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to complete the online questionnaire - the information that it provides will help us plan for future classes.
We have now been through all the responses and there are some really interesting results, one of them being that nearly 85% of those who responded have requested that live streamed classes via Zoom stay on our timetable.
Members are what Lorna Scott Fitness is all about and as we look to the future we are starting to plan for September's timetable. There are still so many unknowns, but we have prepared an online questionnaire to help us plan!
Please be completely honest and feel free to complete it anonymously, if you prefer!
Some of our members have asked if friends can join our classes - they are very welcome, but I will need to ask them to complete a quick Screening Form which they can access via the website, or contact Lorna directly!
Our Zoom timetable will remain the same this week; THERE WILL STILL BE A CLASS ON BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY @ 10AM!
We will be virtually meeting up to talk about nutrition / eating / getting motivated this Tuesday 19th May 2020 at 10.30am. This will be a FREE session open to anyone who is interested! Contact Lorna for the login details.
Thank you to everyone who took part in our FIRST LIVE STREAMED CLASS VIA ZOOM! Anyone who would like to join us for Fitness Pilates this evening or for the first Fat Burning and / or Abs Blast tomorrow, just contact Lorna directly and she will send you all the details you need.
We have put together a timetable for some virtual classes starting officially on Monday 4th May! The timetable can be adjusted in the coming weeks if it isn't meet your needs, so stay in touch and we'll get through this together!
If you would like to join one of the below classes this week, just contact Lorna directly and she will send you all the details.
