Welcome

Welcome to my online classes, which are usually live-streamed three times a week. They are password-protected for security. If you don't know the password, please contact me for it well beforehand, so you can access the class.

 

Sometimes we have a chat in small groups (on zoom) after the class; this is completely optional.

I reserve the right to change the content or type of any classes I teach at short - or no - notice. Class finish times are approximate.

Health & Safety

Participating in a live-streamed class is very different to participating in a class face-to-face with the instructor. Whilst both are fun, there is a bigger responsibility to you as the participant to ensure that you are following instructions to get a safe and effective workout.

As with all exercise programs, you are advised to consult with a medical practitioner/ GP before commencing any new fitness regime, and to stop immediately and seek medical advice if you experience any discomfort or pain. 

 

If you take part in the class, that denotes acceptance of my online disclaimer. In addition:

  • Ensure the area around you is uncluttered and safe, with clear floor area, no low-hanging overhead lights (watch that chandelier!) or sharp edges of furniture. You will need a mat or towel to lie on.

  • Wear appropriate clothing for the activity. Layers are a good idea. You don't need designer brands, just clothing you can easily move in. 

  • All animals or children should be outside the exercise area.

  • Ensure your room is well ventilated or warm enough, depending on the season. You may need a blanket for Stretch & Relax.

  • If you are feeling unwell at any time during the class, please stop immediately.

  • Ensure I have your up-to-date contact details, including address, and emergency contact phone numbers.

 
Start time

Doors open on the hour, class starts five minutes later. Please give yourself plenty of time to join the class. The waiting room is usually open from quarter-to so you can connect via the zoom link at that point. All times are London time.

To give you time to notice, and sort out, any possible tech problems your end, such as Windows/Zoom updates or your wi-fi playing up, I suggest you plug in and switch on your device well before each class.

Below are the Zoom links to the next online classes.
  • If there is a problem with the link and you can't get in, let me know as soon as you can, please. If the link is not there, I will be adding it asap. Close down the website and then try again.

  • Classes are password-protected. Contact me for the password, ideally at least the day before the class. Newcomers may be asked for the Zoom password on entering the class. 

  • I recommend you wear layers and bring a mat or towel to lie on. For Stretch & Relax, you may need a blanket, and you may need to put on warmer clothing compared with a cardio class. You could also bring a pillow and/ or hot water bottle.

Another zoom update is available as of May 25th.

Classes are not taking place during half term (w/c Monday 30th May)

Payment for May was due on Tuesday 31st May. Thank you. :) 

I have emailed all customers about the future of Fitness with Alison. If you haven't read it, you can do so here.

Cancellations

Any on-line classes could be cancelled, altered, or postponed if Zoom / my wi-fi is down, or if I or my family are ill. Please keep checking here to make sure and to find out about rearrangements, as I will not contact everyone individually. ​

There will be no classes on Monday 30th May, Wednesday 1st and Friday 3rd June, as it is half term.
