Just checking in on everyone and hoping you are all coping with the current situation as best as you can.
Some of you may have already seen some of my workouts on our Facebook page which I hope you are all enjoying, also some of our students have joined me in the live zoom classes, which have been a great success.

The ZOOM app is completely free for you to upload and use, it enables group participation in classes without leaving your homes.  You can decide to have your camera on or off or you can switch to a multi screen and see the rest of the students having fun working out.
This is a great way to keep you safe, fit, healthy and motivated and ready to return to the studio when we are given the all clear.
 At the moment we are offering:-

Tuesday 9.30am Core and Dumbbells
Thursday 9.30am Body-conditioning
Saturday 9.00am Core, Dumbbells and Stretch

If you do not have dumbbells or weights, people have used tin cans, bottles of drink anything they can grab, it does make for an interesting workout!
We are now offering Yoga sessions most Sunday mornings around 9.30am so again let us know if you are interested.
We look forward to seeing you back at the studio when this is all a distant memory, thank you for your continued support, stay safe, stay at home.

Covid-19 Temporary Studio Closure

Its time to close the doors until the all clear
It is with a sad heart but something that must be done due to latest government regulations, regrettably myself and other like businesses have been advised to close the studio from 12pm tonight until further notice.

We will be keeping in touch via the Facebook/Instagram page with videos of our workouts daily giving you all something to do from home.
These will not be edited so if nothing else may give you a laugh which we all need at this scary time!

We can then keep in touch through comments and pictures, yes pictures of you working out at home please post them.

With regards to monthly payments please do not feel obliged to continue paying, but your support would obviously be grateful. Unfortunately it is something that will effect all of us and I know we are all saving our pennies at this time.
I am hoping to ride out the storm and hopefully come through the other side.

I thank you all for your support students and fellow instructors, wishing you all well and hope to see you all very soon.

Keep Fit stay healthy


Updates and possible closure
This email is to confirm and assure you that we are taking each day step by step and adhering to government guidelines in respect of what we should do regarding the Coronavirus spreading.

We are currently open for business but this could change at any time depending on how the things progress, we totally understand students decision to stay away from the studio at this time. If you are still wishing to attend your classes please just check your emails and social media for updates before coming, as I said we are listening and will take any necessary action to keep everyone safe and healthy, which could mean closing the studio at any given time.
We will keep you updated as much as possible.

Benefits of Core exercises

There are so many benefits of doing core exercises, essentially they strengthen and improve stability in the torso, also improving spinal and postural control. Strong core muscles will help in preventing injury, and also aiding in the recovery from injuries. We offer 4 Core classes a week, Tuesdays 9.30am and 7.00pm, and also Saturday mornings 9.00am. These 30 minute classes are composed of 5 minutes of exercise with 1min rest between each set. For those of you who want to up the pace our HIIT Core Stability class on Wednesdays is at 6.25pm and is a non stop adrenaline pumping 30 min session.

Boxercise follows the methods of boxing closely but without any physical contact. It is NOT a boxing class or a self-defence class.

It is a circuits, aerobics, beasting style of training developing hand-eye coordination,
balance, timing and technique, whilst working all major muscle groups.

It is a great stress buster, suitable for both sexes, ages and levels of ability and more importanly its fun!

You will need gloves, but we have some at the studio for you to use.

If you would like to book into the New 7pm Boxercise class on Monday evenings please email: Info@Raphael-Fitness.co.uk for more information.
