For those of you who already know me, you'll know I've recently graduated from university, studying nutrition - A whole 5 years of being back in full time education!
It's fair to say that during this time, running Fitness Quest wasn't my main priority, but I'm so proud of how I managed to juggle my workload and I'm forever grateful to the wonderful Fitness Quest members for continuing to attend classes.
As we're all well aware by now, the past couple of years have been a real struggle for all of us. Covid-19 has hit the fitness industry particularly hard and while many instructors, like myself, adapted and took their classes online, I'm sad to see many of my instructor friends have since hung up their trainers and mic's for the last time.
Since re-starting in person classes, Fitness Quest has struggled to get things back to where they were pre-pandemic. Unfortunately, Covid-19 class rules (no sharing equipment, doors open to promote ventilation etc), fear of socialising, long-covid side effects for many attendees and financial hardship have all impacted class numbers to a near breaking point.
As a result, I recently had to pause Monday evening classes until it is viable to run them again - However, I'm determined to give it my absolute everything before hanging up my teaching shoes!
THIS IS WHERE I NEED YOU!
If you plan on returning to classes, now really is the time to bite the bullet. The next block of courses begin in March. I have set up a new website and would love your help to spread the word. Bournemouth has always been incredibly saturated with gyms and a variety of classes, but the Fitness Quest family are loyal and I love to see people return - whether that's back to back courses or after years away. New members are also of course very much welcome.
The next blocks of courses, available to book now are:
KETTLERCISE: Six week course starts Monday 14th March 2022 - £36 (payment until 28th February) or £42 (payment from 1st March)

I've always tried to be a positive influence, but I also take pride in my honesty; hence this update. I really, really, want to continue running Fitness Quest but I need to ensure it is financially viable to do so.
Here's to a new start, we've got this!
