Fitness in the Bubble – Going from Strength to Strength in 2024!

28 March 2024

Once a year to mark the Club’s birthday, the Fitness Team takes over the outdoor tennis courts whilst they are still undercover, and we celebrate group exercise with a two-hour mash up class which is now better known as ‘Fitness in the Bubble’! We are now in the fifth year of running this established event, which all started back in 2018 with Body Attack 100. With vast space on the courts, we aren’t limited in numbers and it provides an opportunity for lots of members to come together and have a fun afternoon whilst working out really quite hard! There’s something very special about doing an activity in such a big group – it really makes you feel good – and this year it was better than ever!

The afternoon started with the Juniors and our fabulous Instructor Amanda led over 30 children (and some parents – special mention to the Dads that joined in!) through several easy to follow dances. The Juniors strutted their stuff to Beyonce’s Texas Hold Em and had their Shot Guns ready under the Hot Sun with George Ezra!

Then onto the main event with Fitness Manager Katy and our amazing Instructor Team making themselves stand out to the crowd in hot pink! New to the line-up this year was our very popular Freestyle Aerobics and who better to kick things off than Garry getting everyone buzzing and ready for more. We followed with some infectious Zumba with Amanda, powerful Combat with Susan, Carrie and Caitlin, alongside a guest Zumba appearance from Susan (who knew Susan was also a Zumba Queen!) The afternoon would not be complete without some energetic Body Attack with Jayden and Garry (aka “Grandad and Son”) and some booty burning LBT with Katy to some great tunes! “Don’t Stop Me Now” we hear you say! So we didn’t and we kept going with Katy and Susan working our Core and Jayden relaxing us with some Body Balance stretches to finish the two-hour marathon!

Thank you to Katy and the team for putting together a great line up and a well-balanced two hours of infectious energy and feel good fun – they are all still buzzing days later! It was great to see so many of you in the Club Lounge afterwards enjoying a well-earned and no doubt refreshing drink or two.

Thank you to every member who joined us and brought such wonderful exuberance which absolutely helped to make the afternoon.

Here’s to next year!
