I  LOVE a fitness class!

There is nothing more motivating than seeing the positive changes in a group of people arriving for my fitness class…to when they leave an hour later.

They drag their heels into the studio, heads filled with any negativity that their day has brought them, backs hunched from driving or working at a desk, downturned mouths and clock-watching eyes…and then watching that turn around as the hour progresses…bodies unfurling, smiles broadening, hearts racing, toes tapping, sweat glistening, music pumping, muscles working, endorphins flooding, moods lifting…

I teach weekly fitness classes in and around Minehead in Somerset.  See more below:

Having been a completely unsociable at-home fitness bunny for years I was very hesitant about getting involved, but I’m so glad I did! Took the plunge at the start of the year when Luisa’s Freestyle Fitness Yoga classes started and I won’t look back – added strength, flexibility and wonderful stress management for my challenging job. Her high intensity H.I.I.T classes are fab too – you’ll get a sweat on believe me, and all her classes are very variable so you won’t get bored either! Clearly a very dedicated and knowledgeable woman who, more importantly loves her job and provides a supportive and a non-judgmental environment. Take the plunge girls, you won’t regret it!

  • Sunrise Sessions: Minehead beach

Think sweat rolling, waves lapping, and sandy toes. Okay, it’s not the Mediterranean, but hey, who cares! It’s a beach, it’s all girls together, it’s space, it’s fresh air, it’s early morning fitness, it’s WONDERFUL!  Yes my original (and still the best 😉) Sunrise Sessions are BACK for Summer 2018 (ladies only, sorry chaps!)♀️after an awesome summer season last year! This year they will run every Wednesday, throughout the school summer holidays.

My Sunrise Sessions will include:

○ 20 minutes of awesome blood-pumping High Intensity Interval Training (modifications will always be available for you so please be encouraged that you WILL be able to do it!)

○ 20 minutes of flowing Yoga poses and stretches, as well as soothing breathwork, and a hint of morning meditation (soooo not as scary as it sounds!) to complete your morning session and totally invigorate you for your day (all appropriate for total Beginners, upward!)

All combined in a weekly, short, early morning class, on the beach!  Mind…body…and soul…rolled up into one delicious early morning ball of goodness ☀️  Think of it as the most awesome opportunity to really take stock of your health, crank-up your fitness, flexibility, strength (and fun!) and get you on the way to your best summer ever!  Here are the details:

Dates: 6 weeks begin from Wednesday 25th July 2018
Times: 6.45am to 7.30am
Cost: £30

 

  • Yoga at The Yoga Cabin (Beginners/Improvers Flow)

This is your invitation for a very special, small-group, 8 week course in Yoga, at the most wonderful private venue, approaching your whole health through mind and body. Yoga is not only physical exercise, but a reminder to live life to the fullest. This regular weekly class will encourage exploration of mindful movement of your own body, by introducing you further to the physical practice (asanas), alongside breathing exercises (pranayama), and vital relaxation, to nourish your body and calm your mind.

Luisa’s approach to teaching Yoga is practical and down-to-earth. She teaches from a qualified anatomical, alignment-based, and quality breath perspective, complimenting her significant background in fitness and wellness, to ensure your experience is refreshing and invigorating.

You will need a good level of mobility to take part and will have a little experience in yoga and fitness already. Luisa is also a member of the local GP Exercise Referral Team, and so is able to advise and support those with specific medical conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, joint issues, anxiety, depression, and more.

*This is an exclusive intimate venue, and this is currently the only weekly class available at it… only 6 spaces available!*

 

Dates: 8 weeks begin from Wednesday 5th September 2018
Times: 9.30am – 10.30am
Cost: £60

Luisa’s classes are great value for money and you can always guarantee something different each week! Whether you have a sporty background or not – I highly recommend her! Not only is her passion for what she does amazing, she is also a mum and understands what it’s like balancing children with working out! Very glad I found her classes – totally easy-going and there isn’t any judgement like a lot of classes/gyms.

My full timetable of fitness classes, including H.I.I.T FIT, Kettle FIT, Core FIT, Spin FIT and Freestyle Fitness Yoga®, working with charity Somerset Activity & Sports Partnership (SASP), are at The Beach Hotel in Minehead. For the latest class timetable, click below:

Great choice of classes which vary week-to-week so you never know what you’ll be doing and keeps the body guessing. Lu is a great instructor, very motivating and very willing to help you with advice. She’s also very passionate about a fit and healthy lifestyle which comes across both in her classes and on her Facebook pages! I’ve been attending classes since they started in January 2016 and have not only gained muscle but have toned up all over. Variety of classes depending on what you want to achieve, Spinning is great for fat-burning and Kettle Fit is great for all over toning and strength! Would definitely recommend Lu to anyone who wants to lose weight, build muscle or just wanting to build fitness and a healthier lifestyle!
