 updates 

Due to everything that's happening at the moment there will be some changes to normal business practice.

FIT Plans

My FIT Plans have been reduced to £22.50 so you can keep yourself exercising in the comfort of your own home. I will also be donating 50% from each sale to my local NHS foundation to help NHS workers through this difficult time. I would also like to invite NHS workers to attend my classes for free.​

 

HGFIT Merch

If anyone buys a HGFIT T-Shirt all money will go to the NHS foundation.

Personal Training

As of 18th May I've been given permission to train at clients 121 or groups of max 4 again at the Common. We will be keeping a distance of 2m or more, no shared heart rate monitors will be worn and clients can bring their own equipment but there won't be any shared equipment. Any clients that don't feel comfortable or are unable to train at the Common we will be training online still. 

I am still taking new clients if anyone is interested, please get in touch to see availability and for more info, click here to learn more. 

Classes

All classes will run online until further notice with a new timetable. When we go back to "normal" I will give everyone at leat 2 week's notice.

 

There is a variety of 10, 20, 30 and 45 minute classes. Classes that are restorative and others that will make you sweat - I've added a testimonials tab from feedback so far over the lsat 15 weeks! 

Please continue to book onto classes as normal if you can (Visit GymCatch, find HGFIT, packages are available to buy or you can book on classes at a pay as you go rate). If your pack/pass expires and you are in a position to buy another it is very much appreciated - you can select auto-renew if that makes it easier.

If, however, you find yourself in financial difficulty then until things are back to normal classes will be at a "Pay If You Can". If you're able to pay any amount then you can pay via PayPal to www.paypal.me/helengpt and enter the amount, or do a bank transfer if easier. Please only ever pay what you can afford, which if you can't please just reach out and you're more than welcome to join for free.

(Price suggestions if paying as you go: 10 minute class - £2, 20 minute class - £4, 30 minute class - £6, 45 minute class - £8)

 

I think now is the best time to jump on the 4 Weeks Unlimited Package though. It's just £45 so less than the cost of a gym membership, less than a weekly Oyster Card rate and means you can hop on to as many classes as you like with nothing more to pay for 4 weeks!

To workout with me you will need to download the Zoom app. 

  1. Once you're in the app, click "Join"

  2. Enter Zoom I.D. 413-581-7098

  3. Join the class with your audio and video on

  4. If you have any injuries or anything I need to be aware of, please let me know in the private chat

Online Class Timetable

 

Daily Stretch - Quick 10 minute stretches that will be on twice a day for the chest, back, hips and hamstrings as we are likely to be spending more time sitting than normal

Legs & Abs/Arms and Abs - For those who have weights at home, this ones for you! Can also be done with resistance bands (the long ones, rather than the short loops). No equipment? No problem! Use cans, water bottles or whatever you have lying around. The legs and abs class can also be done using body weight only.

Core Blitz - Daily core session to help strengthen all the muscles that support our back. Will be working a mixture of the front, side and back!

Yoga Inspired - I've been a Body Balance instructor for about 6 years now, which uses yoga inspired moves choreographed to music, with a different focus each track. To keep this theme, I've included a daily yoga inspired workout with a different focus each day of the week

Foam Rolling - How many of you own a foam roller and don't actually use it? Short sessions to essentially give you a mini self massage during this period. 

If you have a trigger point ball/massage ball/tennis ball, have that ready too

HIIT - High intensity interval training. These sessions are designed to get the heart rate up. Includes warm up and stretch and then you'll be doing short bursts of high intensity exercises with varying recovery times. This is a great one to lift your energy levels and get all the endorphins flowing

 

Legs Bums & Tums - A low impact, High rep class that targets exactly what it says, your legs, bum and stomach muscles. get ready to feel the burn.

 

FIT Classes - These are my normal classes that I do at the Common, just online! It's a different body focus each day and the classes are designed to be challenging, results orientated but fun at the same time

Please note: The timetable is subject to change depending on how many people are attending the classes - if no-one ever turns up it will be removed, so please do share with others if you want to keep them all running.

 

Community

Because this is all online now, there's a chance there are people further away that may want to join in, so please share or forward this information with others. In these difficult times I'd love to do my part and help as many people as possible. 

THANK YOU!

  

I would like to say a big thank you to everyone for your ongoing support, patience, positivity and for being so adaptable. It gives me confidence that we are going to get through this together. Any questions, please ask.

This is new territory for all of us so let's get through it together but remember to be safe, be kind, stay active and reach out if you need help.

Let's get through this together.
