Happy November … hope you have all had a lovely weekend, somewhat wet but hope you have all had chance to absorb the amazing colours of nature as it doesn’t last long!

Remember this time of year we need to get a good balance of keeping warm and moving. It’s so easy to be succumbed by the dark nights and cooler temperatures but it is so important to keep the body and mind nurtured… whatever that may be whether doing some Yoga/Pilates, having a boogie, toning & strengthening or simply going for a walk!




Having raised over £100 for Breast Cancer Uk with our Wear it Pink Day … I’ve signed up to 100 squats a day through November – STAND UP TO CANCER 😳– as some of you know I don’t mind squats – not sure I’m going to like 100 a day 🤔
I think they are an exercise everyone should do regardless of age, will keep you posted how I am getting on!
Apologise those who join me on Full Body Tuesday morning 😉

Please keep an eye on your Gymcatch messages on the Gymcatch app, as the majority of my correspondence will be via Gymcatch as this way I can reach everyone! If you are not sure how to access your messages please ask.
If on Gymcatch you are getting ‘add required info’ when you want to book onto a class, this will only appear if you haven’t completed my Fitness Questionnaire/Participation Questionnaire. I have been gradually inputting everyones dates and chasing those who need to submit a new form. Once the dates have been added you will no longer get this prompt (until 12 months has passed)! If you haven’t submitted a form in the last 12 months, please complete the form via the link on Gymcatch – see profile page (one for Yoga & Pilates, one for Fitsteps & Zumba) 🙂 Thank you x

Something good that came out of COVID … give people space. All my classes have a capped number so that everyone can enjoy the class, I really dislike turning people away and I am lucky to work in some lovely spaces. but please value your space, don’t be squashed in a class like a sardine!!!


All my class on my timetable and gymcatch will suggest what level suitable for; All, beginners-improvers, intermediate (have experience in) – these are guidances to help people determine which class is right… if you are unsure or want advice please contact me 🙂

Reviews are so important to anyone running a small business, so if you would like to leave me a review, have a spare 5 minutes – either on my ‘Aby Kate Classes page’ on Facebook, or if you would prefer to send me a written review that’s also fine as I can add this to my website testimonials 🙂
