Please note some minor Group Fitness timetable alterations

Thank you to all members and guests who have embraced the new changes to the Eltham Leisure Centre timetable that was released 1 month ago today.

After listening to feedback regarding the afternoon time slots effective today, 16th October 2017 we have tweaked these a little.

Main changes are as follows:

  1. Previous 1.15pm classes moved to 1.30pm
  2. Virtual RPM classes moved from 2.30pm to 2.00pm each day of the week
  3. Friday 4.15pm Virtual BodyPump altered to Virtual Body Combat as per the member ballot

We are pleased to announce that due to the positive feedback with Virtual RPM we have added classes each morning at 7.00am Monday to Friday and also classes each day of the week at 4.00pm.

The addition of the above mentioned classes now takes the Group Fitness offering to over 165 classes per week.
