How do I access the recordings?
Each virtual fitness class is now being recorded thanks to feedback from our members.
In order to access the recordings all you need to do is book into the class of your choice as normal.
When you register it ensures that we have your e-mail so that we can send you a link to the recording once the class has finished.
Recordings are automatically deleted 24 hours after the class has finished so please be sure to access them before this time.
We trialed recording the classes and found a way so that only the instructor is recorded during the actual class itself.
Your name is not shown but your camera / sound may be seen and heard at the beginning or end of the class before the actual session begins, you can ensure you are not recorded by turning off your camera and your sound (which happens by default when you join a session).
I've booked, how do I join the Virtual Fitness Class?
Once your booking form has been completed it is sent to our technical team and they will send you an e-mail with the link to access the virtual fitness class.
The virtual fitness classes will open approximately 10 – 15 minutes before the class begins allowing you time to get in and prepared for when the class starts.
Your microphone camera are turned off by default when you join the session.
The link in the e-mail is your access to the fitness class, once clicked it should take you to the Zoom app and take you straight into the class.
It is worth noting that when you first start a class, your camera and sound will be turned off. You will need to press “join audio” in the bottom left corner of the screen and then press “call over internet” to be able to hear the sound from the instructor.
Your joining link is unique to you so please do not share it with anyone else or you will not be able to join the session. Only one of your devices can join the session.

Zumba Step combines the toning and strengthening power of step aerobic with the fun fitness routine that Zumba brings. We use a step to increase intensity but is not essential to participation. The class is split to include Zumba toning which adds resistance by using toning sticks (weights) to the workout which enhances the sense of rhythm while toning target muscle groups.
Equipment - you do not need a step to participate as all exercises can be done without. Alternatives are given so you can adapt. Do not create a step for yourself as this may not provide a stable base or be at correct height. Toning exercise routines again can be without toning sticks. If you have weights you should use nothing more than 2lbs or 1kg to prevent injury. You can use bottles of water as an alternative. All exercises can be without equipment but will be at a lower intensity.
Dance exercise routines that incorporates latin and international music to help improve cardio vascular fitness. Take the 'work' out of workout by mixing low and high intensity moves to a fun routine.
Rhythm, music and fun is recipe to Zumba.
You do not require any equipment as this is a dance exercise class.
