For this next phase, we plan to have 2 personal trainers in the studio, working with one client, or 2 if from the same household, with a maximum of 5 people, (including trainers) in the studio at any one time. This will be reviewed at the beginning of November. We are aware that some of you will not feel comfortable with this, so we will be offering times where just 1 trainer will be present.
With additional training hours, we will have a little bit more flexibility and availability. Our goal has been to allow as many people to return to training as safely as possible and facilitating enough hours for the team to earn an income after months off. This will continue to be the case and I would foresee that it maybe some time until we are able to offer a timetable as we did pre Covid.
Classes will not return for a while, but we will continue to offer online classes via Zoom. After a short break, these will resume with a new timetable from 7th September. https://www.personalbeststudio.co.uk/virtual-classes.html
On the subject of Zoom classes, we would really appreciate your feedback o we can try and match our classes as closely to your requirements as possible.
This is a new venture for us all, but one that we plan to keep for the foreseeable future and beyond.
We plan to offer more classes throughout the week as a supplement to our 1-1 training and our regular classes once they resume.
As Zoom is available across the globe, we intend to market this service beyond the 5 Valleys, but rest assured this will not affect the service you have experienced so far. Already we have had participants in Surrey, Bournemouth, Cheltenham and Dursley!

With so many tomatoes to pick and warm summers evenings to sit outside, what better way to get away, with this delicious Greek salad inspired by Jamie Oliver.
According to Jamie, it is quite nice to have different shapes and sizes in a salad, so cut your medium tomato into wedges, halve the cherry tomatoes, and slice the beef tomato into large rounds. Put all the tomatoes into a large salad bowl. Slice the onion very finely so it is wafer thin and add to the tomatoes. Scratch a fork down the sides of the cucumber so it leaves deep grooves in the skin, then cut it into thick slices. Deseed your pepper, slice it into rings and add them to the salad along with the cucumber.
Roughly chop the dill and most of the mint leaves, reserving the smaller ones for garnish. Add the chopped herbs to the bowl of salad, then squeeze your handful of olives over so they season the vegetables, then drop them in.
Add a pinch of sea salt, the vinegar, and the extra virgin olive oil. Quickly toss everything together with your hands. The minute all those flavours start working with the veg is when the magic starts to happen. Have a taste, and adjust the flavours if need be.
To serve, pop the block of feta right on the top of the salad. Sprinkle the oregano over the top along with the reserved mint leaves, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and take it straight to the table. Delicious.
On a more optimistic note, we had a great first week back in the studio, with lots of positive comments from clients and great to see everyone following our new protocols. Everyone was happy to be back training and looking forward to returning to a new normal!
With just one trainer in the studio at a time, it means the diary has filled up very quickly. However we do have spaces for Personal Training this week on:
Tuesday 4th @ 7.30am with JJ
Wednesday 5th @ 4pm with JJ
Friday 7th @ 11am with JJ & 2pm with Tom
Saturday 8th @ 12.30 & 2.30pm with Tom
Contact email@example.com to book your session
Zoom continues on Monday @ 7pm, Tuesday @ 6pm, Wednesday @ 1pm, Friday @ 1pm & Saturday @ 9.30am
Not since my last visit to the Hall of Mirrors, have I been so confused! In the same week that gyms are able to open and that there will be a battle against obesity, we hear the news that everyone over the age of 50 may need to isolate!!
Let’s hope common sense prevails and those in this age bracket are encouraged to do more, especially in light of this new report from the University of East Anglia which suggests those in their middle-age need to keep up their physical activity levels if they are to enjoy a fit and healthy retirement. The study reveals that over-55s in particular should be doing more to keep fit as they approach retirement age—because of the physical, mental and social benefits of being active.
Lead researcher Dr. Charlotte Salter, from UEA's Norwich Medical School, said: "In England, participation in physical activity tends to decrease around the age of 55. "Frailty and pre-frailty—the decline in health, resilience and mobility often associated with ageing—are conditions previously expected to be found in people at retirement age and over. But now these conditions affect a third of British adults aged 50-65.
Whilst many have saved and invested in pensions, the long-term effect of not having enough time or energy because of work, health problems and a lack of motivation are leaving many approaching retirements in poor shape.
