Farnham Rocks

Farnham Fitness at Home

It's not just Joe Wicks who can keep us fit! While we've been busy keeping the kids active, we may have forgotten to look after ourselves: now is the time to change that!

Over the past few weeks, we have seen a rapid shift in the way we run our lives. It is fast becoming 'normal' to be at home and thousands of businesses have adapted too, bringing their groups and classes to your home. Wellness and keeping fit has never been more important so here is the low down on how to access and support a whole range of local exercise groups (virtually of course!). Yoga, pilates, HIIT, new mum exercises... it's all on offer!

Farnham Pilates are providing a full range of classes online and live. There are a selection of membership options which can be found on the website.

Let Hannah help you stay fit and strong with Pilates from your own home. ALL lessons are live via Zoom or Facebook, for a personalised offering, where she can see you and guide you – it is motivating and Hannah is able to correct. You can also access free Facebook live classes and a host of videos and tips through online membership.

Yoga mums have a large number of classes accessible for a reduced price. Linda specialises in helping post natal and peri/post menopausal woman with pelvic health issues. She is also running FREE Family Yoga classes during lockdown and Men’s Stretch & De-Stress classes. Details of timings and how to participate can be found here.

Participants are being encouraged to donate fees to #feedingthefrontline, a local initiative co-ordinated by Surrey Drive, who are making and delivering hot, healthy meals (all made locally) to nurses and frontline support staff at Royal Surrey and surrounding hospitals. Find out how to help or donate here.

Busylizzy have online memberships available for mums-to-be and new mums. These memberships not only include daily classes for little ones but fantastic exercise sessions for pregnant ladies and new mums. They have created a timetable of virtual pregnancy, mummy fitness, baby and toddler classes and member talks / workshops for you to enjoy from home. Classes are daily and unlimited for online members.

SLAM continues to support mums on the journey to getting fit. Not only are the ususal classes available virtually, but there are important social opportunites too such as virtual playgroup and a 'Mum's Night Out'! "We are all in this together. Let’s get our CYBER SLAM on!". Offering 5 live (recorded) workouts a week, this is a great option to keep both you and the kids from feeling isolated at this difficult time.

Sweaty Mama, usually run in Alton, Petersfield and Haslemere by Alice, are bringing daily classes to the homes of mums and mums-to-be. Check out their packed schedule which you can join in with from the comfort of your own home.

Mummabfit, run locally in Ash, Aldershot and Fleet, helps new mums get back to fitness around children. Fancy bounding around your lounge, popping out a few booty building squats or feeling strong in the arms with a few press ups? Join their private, online workout group. Exercise are suitable for all and no equipment is needed.

Stomp, run by Jo, usually utilises the beautiful surroundings of Frensham Pond. Whilst we are on lockdown classes are running daily, FREE of charge. No excuses here! Check out Jo's schedule and join in today!

Most of our local leisure centres continue to run their exercise classes online: follow these links for information about Hart Leisure Centre, Farnham & Farnborough Leisure Centres and Alton Sports Centre.

With a variety of live classes running every day, there’s no shortage of ways to get your ‘ommm’ on from the comfort of your own home or hotel room! Ebb & flow, Farnham online is a live streaming service with a library of different Yoga and Pilates classes.

The teachers at 'The Well Being Space' in Farnham are still able to deliver their fantastic classes via Zoom, so you can continue to look after your health, happiness & wellbeing during this vital time.

I hope there's something there that takes your fancy! There certainly is something for everyone! Don't forget, the first step to taking care of your families is to take care of yourself!
