Your Weekly Roundup

Kick holiday stress to the curb with one-stop shopping for everyone on your list……..

from golf, tennis to beauty and dining vouchers – check out all that Kippie has to offer below.


As everyone is aware the importance of COVID-19 mitigation measures is as important as ever. It is imperative that we all follow the Scottish Governments updated recommendations. 

  • Please lateral flow test regularly, ideally prior to any visit to the Club. 
  • All members must either sign in via the track and trace QR codes or if visiting the sports complex scanning in via the door entry. 
  • Masks must be worn when moving around the Club. This includes between stations in the gym 
  • Please sanitise your hands and any equipment as you go. The Kippie team be redoubling their efforts and will be focusing on touch points throughout the Club. 
  • Please use the hand sanitisers and wipes provided. We will do our best to ensure that they are filled up, but in the unlikely event that you find one to be empty, please let a team member know immediately. 
  • When attending classes in Studio 1, we encourage you to use a one-way system in the equipment store. A Kippie team member will be on hand to offer assistance. 
  • We will be ensuring that the ventilation in the Lodge is adequate and therefore we may need to open more windows during busy times.  
  • If you experience any signs or symptoms of COVID-19, please do not visit the Club. 

The Club will be operating as normal in line with Government guidance and industry best practice. At this juncture we do not plan to reduce our Class capacity, however if the Government recommendations change, we will review this. We are reviewing our risk assessments as the Government publishes its recommendations and we will make any necessary modifications when required. For example, reintroducing the screens between tables in the bar restaurant. 

I wish all our members a happy and safe Christmas. 

Robin Caldwell 

Club Director

Treat yourself for Christmas!

2022 a new you!

by Sam Luxford, Therapy Solutions

Hello Kippie Lodge members!

Have you started thinking of any New Years Resolutions for 2022?
Do you want to become the best version of yourself this coming year?

Solution focused therapy may be the right choice for you!

I have helped many clients over the years with my 10+ years of experience in the field, many of which has been through my work as Kippie Lodge’s in-house mental health expert. Having spent my career in mental health and addictions, I fully understand the complexities and strains of modern day life.

I have successfully helped clients beat their addictions, achieve their weight-loss goals, increase their confidence, deal with phobias as well as helping to reduce their anxieties and stress (and MANY more).

I am committed to helping people to gain positive control of their lives through ‘solution focused’ therapies – concentrating on the future and what can be achieved rather than dwell on the past and on what might have been.

So, will you take the leap to become the best version of yourself?

Now is the time to make positive change in your life, whatever that may be!

If you check out my social media (@samluxfordtherapysolutions) you will find lots of information about my services and lots of testimonials.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

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."


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