Three-court sports hall to cater for badminton, netball, football or exercise classes.

Exercise classes

Pilates class

Monday 6pm - 7pm. Pilates focuses on building your body's core strength and improving your posture through a series of low-repetition, low-impact stretching and conditioning exercises.

By core strength, we're talking about your back, abdominal and pelvic muscles. Through pilates, you'll be able to develop these muscles without adding bulk, increasing your flexibility and agility and at the same time toning your stomach and thigh muscles.

Pilates goes far beyond your core muscles, however, and not only provides a complete body workout (you'll be working muscles you didn't even know you had!), but also helps you develop an awareness of how your body works, helping your mind and body to work in harmony.

Places are limited and must be booked in advance. To book a place, or for enquires, please contact us on 01743 351916. The cost is £4 per session, or £34 for ten sessions (the ten sessions must be used within three months).
