I’m responsible for organising a number of other classes (Circuits, Boot Camp and Pilates) in ESB. Please see the Gateway timetable. If you’re over in Gateway on a Wednesday please feel free to try a class.
It’s a great way to get fit (or stay fit), and the classes are designed to suit all levels of fitness.
