Get Fit Classes

“Get Fit” classes cover a broad spectrum of group workouts which are part of ELA-coaching on the isle of Islay: from Bodyweight- exercises to High Intensity Interval Training, from Nordic Walking to Yoga. Whether you just love working out in a group or combine the classes with your personal sessions, come along and enjoy the groups-dynamic!

Due to limited space in the gym-room and in order to build-in the element of progression, the classes are always given in blocks which participants have to register for in advance. Those blocks usually last 6 weeks and within this time we will be focussing on a few specific aspects of the general objective (e.g. upper body strength in our bodyweight-class “Get Fit classic”).

However, if you would like to drop in during a block – for a single session or a trial, you’re absolutely welcome to do so. Please get in touch, so I can keep you a space and help you making a good choice.
