Fitness Classes at Steventon Village Hall

MEL_6156.jpg

I’m Gemma, I live in Steventon and I've been running Gemma Pearce Fitness since 2011.

I teach various dance fitness and Pilates classes in village halls in Steventon, Abingdon and Chilton. All of our classes are designed for people who wouldn’t want to go to a gym but want to move more, dance, feel better and take a break from stress.

We believe that the best way to get fit and stay healthy is to enjoy what you do, whether you’re 25 or 85. A little exercise makes such a difference - whether it’s for mental health, reducing your waistline, easing back pain or just having fun!

All our classes are so supportive, non-judgemental and full of fun and we hope to meet you soon!

 

Here are the classes we've currently got running in Steventon:

Zumba

What it is: Party style latin dance fitness class that really doesn't feel like exercise!

Who's it for: no specific dance experience required, but you must like music and dancing! Suitable for complete beginners to exercise with jumping and non-jumping options (although if you'd prefer a totally low impact class, take a look at Zumba Gold). 

What do I need to bring? Nothing!

Where is it: Steventon Village Hall.

When is it: Wednesdays 8 - 8.45pm.

.

Class/Course: Class. Advance booking only - £7 per class.

Groovelates

What is it?

This class is a bit of a Legs Bums & Tums class to 70s and 80s music. It’s a core-tastic class with choreographed toning routines to retro songs you know and love! We start with a standing aerobics warm up then we come down onto the mat to work on the abs, bum and back. You’ll recognise lots of the exercises from Pilates but this class is choreographed and faster paced for avery different sort of workout!

 

Who is it for?

Groovelates is for people who want to tone up and who love 70s and 80s music! That tends to be women in their 40s and 50s–in fact this is the perfect class if you’re menopausal.

 

Where and when is it? Groovelates is on Wednesdays at 7pm at Steventon Village Hall.

 

How do I join?

Groovelates is £7 per class, booked in advance online. No membership or course booking required but if you want to sign up for the term, you get a discount.

Gold Aerobics

What is it?

This class is a traditional aerobics class, just like you used to do back in the day! Each week, I teach exercises bit by bit until by the end of the class you have a big juicy aerobics routine. This is a very sociable class, with lots of fun and chat! 

 

Who is it for?

Gold Aerobics participants are ladies who are over 50, usually retired and looking for a class to do during the day. This class is energetic and active and but as it is low impact you’ll be improving your cardiovascular fitness… with none of the dreaded jumping jacks! 

 

Where and when is it? 

Gold Aerobics is on Fridays at 10.30am at Steventon Village Hall.

 

How do I join?

Gold Aerobics is £7 per class, booked in advance online. No membership or course booking required but if you want to sign up for the term, you get a discount.

Gentle Pilates

What is it?

Gentle Pilates is a modified version of Pilates, low-impact exercises to feel stronger,more flexible and balanced. We spend about half the class doing standing Pilates and balancetraining. We use a chair for support and it’s there to help you get down onto the mat...and up again!

 

Who is it for?

Gentle Pilates participants tend to be 65+ and looking for a more gentle class or onewhere adaptations are made for health issues and physical limitations. If you do have a diagnosed health condition, back problem or joint issue, please do get in contact before booking.
