What can I expect from a JH Fitness class?

All our classes are fun, friendly and will aim to give you the best workout possible. All classes have a strong social and community feel and all our members, staff and instructors are really welcoming. There is no judgement and there are different levels and options given in all the class routines to suit all fitness levels and abilities. Your instructor will do their best to encourage, support and motivate you at every step of your fitness journey. We don’t discriminate and everyone is treated equally.

I'm not very fit. Should I be worried about attending?

Not at all. JH Fitness caters for all fitness levels and abilities. The instructor will always show different levels and options to suit all so you will always be able to follow along with the class and you can take everything at your own pace. Your instructor will encourage you, push you and motivate you but will never make you do anything you don’t feel comfortable doing. And if you need to sit out at any point that’s totally fine. If you do need to leave before the class is finished, we do ask that you stretch out for health and safety reasons.

Do I have to join a membership scheme to attend?

Once you come along to a JH Fitness class you automatically become a member and will have access to the private Facebook group.

You can choose to become a JH Fitness Monthly Unlimited member for £35 which gives you unlimited classes, on-demand access as well as perks, discounts and benefits. For more information check out our Class Packages page.

I want to come to the dance fitness class. Do I need dance experience?

Not at all. None of our classes require any previous experience of dance or fitness as they are tailored to all fitness levels and abilities.

AND

* A well-fitting comfortable pair of trainers that can take impact, that you can move easily in and that do not have a split sole. PLEASE DO NOT WEAR HEELS OR FLIP FLOPS. If you are wearing these types of shoes you will not be allowed to participate for health and safety reasons. You will be permitted to do yoga in either trainers, bare feet or yoga socks.

Do I need to fill in a health questionaire?

You will need to complete a health questionnaire before you can participate in any class. We need this information to ensure we can provide a safe class for you and to ensure we are covered by health and safety and our insurance. This is also to support you correctly when you are exercising as it helps the instructor give you advice on how to adapt any routines or moves accordingly if required. The health questionnaire needs to be updated yearly which is mandatory by Data Protection laws.

Click here to go to the Health Questionaire page to complete yours.

*Please note: Anyone under the age of 18 must ask their parents to complete the form on their behalf.

Are your classes only for women or can men join in too?

We welcome all genders and all our classes are suitable for all.

Online Class Information

Due to Government restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic, all classes are being held via Zoom (video conferencing software). You can access Zoom at www.zoom.us and either book your class via the website or download the app to your computer or personal device. Once booked you will receive a confirmation email with the details to access the class. You will not be able to access the class without the link or the Meeting I.D AND password.

Please check your audio settings to ensure you can hear the instructor and your screen settings to ensure you can see the instructor. You do not need to have your video turned on but it is always nice for the instructor to see you and keep the community aspect up. You will not be able to see anyone while you are exercising with your video on as the instructor will spotlight their video so they are the only one you can see during the class.

If you have any other questions relating to Zoom, please feel free to email JH Fitness at info@jhfitness.co.uk or call Jenny on 07850380630.
