Happy Friday to all our members!

Let’s get right into it.

Coaching


Information regarding Kids Coaching

Bookings opened this week for our upcoming block of kids coaching which includes classes such as gymnastics and hip hop. The telephone lines were extremely busy with spaces filling up within 5 minutes of the phone lines opening.

Firstly, we would like to apologise to all members who were continually holding only to be met told all spaces had been taken. We have received so many enquiries and notes of interest for these classes since the bookings day that we are now in the process of adding additional classes and times.

We appreciate that certain circumstances cause frustration however, we respectively ask you do not take this frustration out on our Reception team. Thank you.

Regards

Robin Caldwell

Club Director


Updates


It’s going to be National Fitness Day on 23rd September and we would like to do something fun to mark the event! So, we are looking at some suggestions into what activities we could host to get families working out together.

We are considering a badminton tournament alongside a table tennis event. However, you may have some suggestions! We would love to hear them – please contact Nicky Caldwell n.caldwell@kippielodge.co.uk.

Fitness Classes

Equipment

If you are a regular to our classes you will be aware that currently, we set out the equipment for you prior to your arrival. After the class, we sanitise and put the equipment away. In order to have a smooth transition between classes, we would appreciate members’ assistance in helping us by sanitising and clearing away your equipment as best you can.

We will continue to have the equipment ready for you but please, arrive 5 minutes before your class incase you need to change your weights. Thank you.

Other fitness news:

Spin Bikes. Unfortunately, there is an ongoing problem with some of our Spin Bikes in the studio. Our rental company is aware of these issues and we are pressing them to rectify the problems on an urgent basis. We do understand your frustrations and we hope to get this sorted asap. A further 3 screens have been replaced today.

Below is a chart of the capacities allowed in each fitness class. This may come in handy when booking online as you will see how many spaces remain in each class.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Why Shower before Swimming? A thorough shower before entering the pool helps remove perspiration, body oils, cosmetics and other substances which react with chlorine. So please, respect your fellow members and shower off. It is also essential that you shower after using the steam room or sauna before reentering the pool. Thank you for your cooperation.

Body Pump/RPM/Body Conditioning/Spin/Total Body Workout/ Body Step 23 spaces

Aqua for Aches & Pains

Introducing new Aqua instructor Wendy Gray

Exercising in a pool provides relief from pain and stiffness in the joints as water provides active resistance, making exercise more effective. It is a great class if you are recovering from surgery or got arthritis. You will be working at your own ability but quickly will see the progression as the week’s progress.

This Aqua session is a fun class sprinkled with movement science

The class takes place each week on Thursdays at 13.50 (1.50pm). Book online or by calling 01224 734747.

Youth Yoga

Kerry Hamilton is Kippie’s youth yoga instructor and she is on the lookout for new attendees.

This lovely gentle class offers a balance of breath work, postures and relaxation aimed at all young people between 12-16.

This age group can benefit from improving their confidence, self image and reduced stress levels whilst taking away coping mechanisms for when they are off the mat too.

Physically of course yoga builds strength, flexibility, increased coordination, balance and posture, and of course mentally can help to re-focus and be more present.

Why not come along to this kind, friendly class, tune into the tunes, and feel uplifted!

Monday’s at 5.15pm – book online or by calling 01224 734747. Guests along with members are welcome.

Golf News

Kippie’s Junior Golf section entered 2 teams with 17 juniors participating in the recent Scottish Golf 6’s matches between Kippie, Craibstone & Westhill Golf Clubs.  Kippie’s teams finished 4th & 5th final respectively.

It’s great to see so many junior golfers taking part in tournaments but we are still on the lookout for a junior golf coordinator to help with future events. If this is something you would like to get involved in then please email Sports and Wellbeing Manager Lorna Cruickshank -lornacruickshank@kippielodge.co.uk

LutFIYA Saitbayeva

Latfiya has been covering fitness classes throughout Aberdeen since 2015 and we are delighted that she is taking four classes here at Kippie.

"I am super excited to be joining the Kippie team. My love for fitness has made me expand my training skills to include the latest techniques including Pilates and Power Pilates with which I am certified to work with. My workouts are all about precise and controlled movements while maintaining proper alignment. If you have never attended a strength or kettlebell class please do not feel you cant take part."

"Despite on the skill or difficulty level of any class I teach it will be suitable for every level as there are modifications always available,  just like every instructor I work with the client’s needs, to encourage them and always include.I provide options whether you are a pure beginner or advanced."
