Fitness Classes in Buntingford
Get fit and feel great
Come along to my friendly fitness classes in Buntingford. All of the classes are pay as you go, with the exception of Trigger Point Pilates. We are working on a booking system for the future so you can book and pay in advance…more news to come soon!
What are the classes we offer in Buntingford?
Body Blitz (Interval Training) improves fitness and burns more calories than constant rate exercise through a mixture of high and low intensity workouts.
Pilates, a low-impact form of exercise which is intended to build up muscle strength and improve flexibility, wellbeing and your general level of fitness. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a bottle of water, no trainers required, just socks or bare feet.
Trigger Point Pilates provides myofascial release of the body, undoing movement restrictions, utilising Pilates core moves. This class is specialist and requires to be booked and paid in advance. We run these classes in short terms rather than all year round. Please get in touch for details on when they are running, how to book a term and pay in advance. Wear comfortable clothing, bring a towel and a bottle of water. No trainers required, just socks or bare feet.
Body Conditioning provides a whole-body workout which focuses equally on strength, aerobic exercise and endurance.
Do I need to book?
No, only if it’s a new class (so we have an idea of numbers likely to attend) or a Trigger Point Pilates class, which is a specialist class.
Do I need a mat?
No, we do provide all the equipment, however, if you attend regularly, you are encouraged to purchase a mat for your own use. A good thick mat (15mm) is a wise purchase if you want comfort while you workout!
When do classes run?
The majority of our classes run all year round, unless specifically notified. We do take a break at Christmas but the rest of the year, we’ll run classes if the numbers are sufficient.

You’ll be asked to complete a questionnaire when you arrive at your very first session, to make sure that I take account of any health concerns. It’s a standard form known amongst the fitness profession as a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire or Par-Q! If you prefer, you can complete the form in advance and bring it with you. Download here.
Classes run throughout the year – not just in term time. I do sometimes take a break but I try to give you plenty of notice.

I find Irene an excellent Pilate’s teacher. She’s very good at pitching the level according to our varied flexibility. She keeps the sessions fun, at the same time stretching us a little more each session. I like the fact that we discover near the end of an hour that we can do something a little better/further than at the beginning of that session!
I find the stretching exercises are perfect for me after playing tennis in the morning, and the concept of strengthening my ‘inner core’ suits me perfectly.”Kathryn
