Get Fit Classes

get-fit-with-ela“Get Fit” is not just the name of my concept, but is meant as a motivation and support for you. You can join us to either start physical activity from “ground zero” or improve your basic fitness and also spice up your training regime on a more advanced level.

If you want to lose weight, are looking for some more physical activity or struggle with painful muscles or joints, there is certainly a class that matches your situation. If you’re in doubt, please get in touch!

All classes (except for Nordic Walking) take part in Port Charlotte Primary School or Columba Hall in Port Ellen. The classes last about an hour and admission is £5 per session. Some classes work with 5-session tickets*. Please bring a water bottle and make sure you’ve had something to eat until about 1 hour before. – Have fun!
