When we think of changing our lives we think of sweeping shifts with big long-term goals, but according to the University College London study, ‘Making Health Habitual’, the key to success is to think small i.e. manageable healthy tweaks like ditching sugar in your tea, checking in with your daily step count, and going to bed 15 minutes earlier. The most important aspect of getting into fitness is showing up for a class, so make that part effortless. Lay the kit out, make the mat accessible, and fill the water bottle the night before. Once you focus on only showing up you won’t stop. Here’s this week’s classes to slot into your life’s timetable now:
Monday’s Lunchtime Express – 13:30 – 14:00

Core Blimey – 18:00 – 18:45

A big abs workout. Our stomach can kill or skyrocket our confidence – waist slimming is one of client’s biggest goals. Aside from wanting to feel better about our form, ab strength is crucial to our mobility as bi-pedal beings. Standing upright on two feet puts a lot of pressure on our spines and such workouts strengthen muscles around the spine and helps balance our bodies to improve our posture.

Nurturing, Calm & Peaceful Yoga – 19:30 – 20:20
Live & Online
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Join for a restorative session before the busy week ends. The class starts with a meditation to steady your thoughts and draw your focus onto your breath. From there you’ll master sun salutations and seated asanas. This is just the tonic for WFH and our sedentary lifestyles.
Bouncing! – 18:15 – 19:30
Goldie Hawn is leading this trampette trend! She got hooked during lockdown and shows no signs of slowing. It’s probably because rebounding on a trampette bridges the gap between recreation and exercise – bouncing fundamentally feels like effortless fun. The health benefits are steep too, astronauts use trampettes to help regain bone density and muscle mass after returning from space and NASA found that it is 68% more efficient, in this regard, than jogging.
Sarah Aarons leads another belter of a class in her south London stomping ground. She believes in the motivating power of social fitness, even when things get tough. Find a new mental and physical strength when working out in a pack.
VIIT At The Sphinx – 10:30 – 11:30
Variable Intensity Interval Training takes you through high, medium, and low intensity workout phases. It covers the whole gauntlet – HIIT, strength and endurance elements, with slower paced mobility and recovery moves. This rounded workout is a super safe way to train as your body is taken through stages.
Sarah Aarons takes over the class agenda this week with another belter in south London. She has a bunch of credit packs if you’re keen to save money and jump into her training sessionsregularly. You can access these here.
Nourishing Yoga In Cator Park 10:00 – 11:00
