THE KEEP FIT GROUP meets every Friday from 3.15-4.15pm at the Hockley Health Club, Eldon Way, Hockley, cost per session £4. The gym is very easy to get to, being the second road on the left through Hockley High Road, just past the Co-operative supermarket and Zebra crossing There is a small car park or alternatively you can park in the road. The gym now has an excellent heater which makes our sessions far more comfortable in the winter.
Martin, our instructor, is fully qualified and insured and conducts a number of classes in this area which are based on cardio-vascular exercises aimed at improving core strength, flexibility, balance etc. We start with 15 minutes of warm up exercises after which we do a circuit consisting of small weights, bicycle, step-ups and various other exercises. The whole session is quite structured but also relaxed and everyone is encouraged to do as much as they can and anyone with any particular physical problem will be advised just how much or little to do. We are a very friendly group and the sessions are fun and enjoyable.
As a result of the New Members Meeting last year several new members joined us but we still have room for more. During last year I am pleased to say that we have several gentlemen who have joined the group and we also have two or three members from other local U3As.
We hope you will come and try out this very friendly group as you will be made very welcome.
