Covid Procedures

Please can all members and their guests adhere to the COVID procedures we have in place.

You MUST check-in using our VirtualCheckin. Remember to also check out upon departure.

Follow the one way systems throughout the Club.

Sanitising stations are situated around the Lodge and when walking to and from your table you must wear your face covering.

Learn to Swim

We have been inundated with demand for Beginners and are unable to offer more classes at the moment. However, we do have spaces available for more experienced swimmers. If your child is confident in the deep water and can swim a width or be able to swim a length of breaststroke and front and back crawl, please contact Reception and register your interest. Julie Welsh, our swimming coordinator will then get in touch to find out more about your child’s abilities and then tell if we have an appropriate class available.

Complex

 During lockdown we offered over 45 classes a week, this increased to over 50 when we were able to start outdoor classes from 5th April.  We are now delighted to release the class schedule for 17th May (subject to Government Guidance).  With over 80 classes available, 65% of them will be back on site at Kippie. Including 29% in Studio 1 and a further 23% taking place in Tennis courts, pool, gym etc. 13% will be in Studio and online and 29% will continue online only e.g. Yoga & Pilates at this stage until the next phase e.g. by 7th June in the hope that social distancing is eased.  We also have 11 children’s and 4 Youth classes a week, contact reception for more details.    We are working hard to source RPM instructors but hope to increase the number of these classes ASAP, by 7th June.

Available sessions are as follows:
Adult Swim – no under 16 years
Open Swim –  any age with swim lane available
Family Swim – all ages no lane available

Kippie are not notified when a member cancels a class or activity, if you have been unable to enrol onto a class/activity, please continue to check the bookings regularly in the event that a member has cancelled and a space becomes available.  We appreciate the highest demand will be for the classes that are only available onsite at Kippie and not also being streamed such as RPM, Aqua Classes and Body Pump. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.  

From 17th May, Gym bookings are changing, we are removing the 15-minute cleaning slot. Bookings will be on every half hour Monday to Friday and on every hour Saturday and Sunday. To allow for changes to be made on the system, we will be disabling online bookings for the current system on Monday 10th May and turning on the new system. Therefore, members wanting to book the gym from 10th-16th May will need to contact Reception. Bookings from 17th May will be online.)

Activities

Creche

As you are aware our Creche has remained closed since lockdown.  Unfortunately, at the start of this year Stacey, our Creche manager has left Kippie to go onto pastures new.  So, we are in the process of reviewing our childcare at Kippie.  Moving forward we would like to introduce new sessions including a playgroup, messy play or dance/movement session.  We are reviewing all options.  If you have any suggestions and would like to share them with us please contact Sports & Wellbeing Manager Lorna Cruickshank at lornacruickshank@kippielodge.co.uk

It is also important that you check-out after leaving your activity.  Failing to do so may result in us contacting you unnecessarily if we have a positive covid case at the Club.

WENDY GRAY

Aches & Pains Aqua

A fun session sprinkled with movement science. Exercising in a pool provides relief with pain and stiffness in the joints.

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 progression as the weeks progress.

The class takes place each week on Thursdays at 13.50 (1.50pm).

Go on, head to the pool and give it a try!

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."

LUTFIYA SAITBAYEVA​

If you would like to discuss any of Latfiya’s classes before taking part please do not hesitate to contact her via Reception.
