Bethan Moorley and her brand new class – Allestree Movers
Beth first attended classes with 24 Fit Derby at the age of 16 years old and was a dress size 22. She was initially ‘dragged’ along by her friend who thought it was time to get fit. We have all been there haven’t we? It’s either suggested to us or it’s a nagging feeling in the back of our minds that we need to do something about our fitness.
Well I’m glad her friend did because after developing a passion and a love for the classes she is now an instructor teaching her own classes. Beth looks fabulous and you can tell she still loves what she does. Her smile says it all and her friendliness makes you want to return to her classes again and again. A true inspiration Beth now takes six classes a week in Konga, Tyga, Jungle Body, Burn and she has just started a new 24 Movers Class in Allestree.
I went along to take part in this class to experience it for myself and I can tell you it was a lot of fun. Now I’m not a great mover at present. I’ve dabbled here and there with some classes, I also walk a bit but by no means am I an expert or regular ‘keep fitter’ at the moment. This I feel is going to change but to say I am a bit out of practice is probably a fair statement. Yes I have to be honest fitness and going to classes sometimes scares me slightly mainly because of a lack of confidence and worrying about my body but hey I went and I survived.
I didn’t have to worry about a thing, Beth put the confidence in me and the other lovely people who had ventured out, probably feeling a bit nervous too. It was a great atmosphere. I loved……
….how Beth went through all the steps before a routine – I felt this made it nice and clear so we wouldn’t lose our way (hopefully).
….talked a little about the music – I didn’t think I’d ever be working out to ‘Kissin in the Back Row of the Movies’ by The Drifters. I know what you’re thinking, it’s not a keep fit song is it? Well here it is and it accompanied a fab routine. Other songs included ‘Sisters Are Doin It For Themselves’ by The Eurythmics.
The thing is this goes to show that this class, with such diverse music a nice level of exercise (not too difficult) and a smiley face from the instructor makes a great starting point for getting into fitness.
You may be wanting to do something but not ready to hit the high impact stuff yet, well this is perfect for you.
Allestree Movers takes place at St Nicholas Church Hall, 2 Lawn Avenue, Allestree. Derby DE22 2PE from 2pm – 2.45pm on a Thursday.
Please check the 24 Fit Derby website or app for the next available class.
Thank you for reading and hope this gives you an insight into what goes on at 24 Fit Derby. We will be featuring more classes and what’s involved, talking to more of the instructors and hopefully some clients who attend the classes too just to enable you to get a feel for it and come along if you haven’t already.
Join me again soon.
