We are organising a one-off group exercise class on Wednesday 27th June at 7.30pm. The class is aimed at our newer members and also non-members looking to find out more about group exercise.
Many people do not know where to start with group exercise. Knowing what to try, what will be suitable, how hard or enjoyable a class will be is difficult.
Our Introduction class on 27th June is specifically designed for people to take their first steps and find out more about what we do in some of our classes at Oakwood. There will also be managers on hand to provide advice and recommendations for people looking to try different things at Oakwood including other classes, the gym, our eGYM equipment and our Boditrax system.
The class will be suitable for people of all ages and abilities but will be targeted at people who are either new to exercise or returning, and have a lower level of fitness.
If you'd like some more information or would like to register to come along please email us or give us a call on 01293 822238.
As you may know we have had a difficult start to the year at Oakwood. We have had a number of issues concerning staff changes, equipment faults, facility repairs/maintenance and more. The vast majority of these issues have been within our control and it is unacceptable that we let these issues get to a point where customers were so unhappy.
In March we hosted some member coffee mornings so we could bring people up to speed with updates regarding the various issues, and to invite further feedback. We collected complaints and suggestions and have listed them in a working document, and detailed what we have done/are doing to address each issue. The document can be accessed here.
We have also set up a new online feedback form to give customers the ability to submit feedback and suggestions directly to the General Manager. The form can be accessed here.
Please note our next Member Coffee Morning will be on Tuesday 24th April at 10.30am.
Oakwood Sports Centre
Has your fitness routine fallen on the back burner? Are you itching to change up the same old workout? Then join us this September to try something new at a free Open Event at Oakwood.
We're opening the doors to twelve of our most popular group exercise classes for you to try on Tuesday 26th (evening) and Saturday 30th September (morning), including three brand new classes: Rumble, Ab Attack and Total Body Conditioning.

The classes are suitable for all levels so whether you’re brand new to exercise (new and nervous...) or a seasoned fitness pro, we have something fun, motivating and exciting to get you on track with your goals.
Take a look at the schedules for both days and book your place here. For a hand deciding which class is for you, just give us a call on 01293 822238.
Don’t delay, book as soon as you can to save your space.
Every September we try and make some changes to our timetable to keep it fresh and challenging. From Monday 11th September 2017 here are some changes to keep you moving in the right direction:
We've worked with instructor Mark to bring a new focus to our boxing-based classes at Oakwood and have replaced our Monday and Saturday Boxercise classes with RUMBLE. Although this is still a boxing-orientated fitness class we've gone for more traditional boxing content. It's still very much a non-contact class but you'll be using more conventional technique, gloves and pads, and our two new punch bags for a superb calorie-torching workout.
RUMBLE is absolutely suitable for everyone and follows a growing trend towards boxing-based classes. Read more about Rumble.
Instructor Hannah has put some superb ideas together to give her Tuesday evening Abs Class a fresh look. You'll be using gliders and swiss balls for a superb 45-min blast to improve the strength of the abs and core muscles.
We've put some more information with pictures and videos on the AB ATTACK page.
TOTAL BODY CONDITIONING
We've been looking for suitable options for a high-impact class on Thursdays since Layla moved on from Tai Bo some time ago. We're delighted to have found Emma, who joined us a month ago and has fitted in perfectly at Oakwood.
Emma has bought some fresh routines and her own brand of high-impact exercise to a Thursday night! Her short 3-4 minute intervals of simple routines, choreographed to great music are an absolute winner! Read more about Emma and her class on the TOTAL BODY CONDITIONING page.
