MEET SOME LEGENDS
“If you are over 60 and looking to raise your fitness level definitely look up the Gymnasium Legends classes online. Easily accessible and you can go at your own pace. Especially useful for an old duffer like me who hadn’t undertaken any exercise for more years than I care to mention. I do it twice a week and can already see an improvement in fitness and mobility – now I can’t wait for the next class. Tyla, the coach is brilliant and it’s the best thing I’ve discovered during the Lock down.”
“My son has been saying “You should do CrossFit, it’s amazing!”, for a few years now. 70 year old jaundiced Dad me, who’s not a gym person, has politely ignored the advice, despite being impressed by the concept and James’ fitness. (I’ve joined gyms in the past and know that it’s not my thing). Lockdown and the offer of the Gymnasium Legends Zoom sessions – a CrossFit coaching session for my age group and in the comfort (privacy?) my own home – gave me the chance to try it out.
I’m on my third week of Tuesday and Thursday sessions now and I’m loving it! I go to a spare room just before 10am, log on to Zoom and up pops Tyla the coach – and about 20 other Legends (over 60’s). Tyla takes us through a warm up, strength session and a workout before a short end of session stretch. It’s all done in 45 minutes and I feel brilliant. I definitely know I’ve done a workout – some days I’ve had to go down stairs one at a time – but its always at your own pace and with easy options.
It is such an easy thing to attend, takes a short amount of time, needs no special equipment and it leaves me feeling fitter and purposeful. I just wish it were 3 times a week rather than 2 because I enjoy it so much and am now really keen to build on the benefits. It’s free, but I would be happy to pay and for the first time in my life, I can see the “gym” becoming a very regular element of my week.”
“I join the Legends Tuesday session. The trainer adapts the workout to your own home space with enthusiasm and demonstrates each exercise and offers easier option to follow at our own level. The 10 minute circuit is demanding but we all work at our own pace and it’s a great feeling as the clock counts down. It’s a great start to my day; any chance of a weekend session? Thursday to Tuesday is a long break!”
“I am really enjoying the exercise class with Tyla. 10am is a great time to do it as it sets me up well for the day. I was nervous at first as I am not used to exercising at home but Tyla is very reassuring and she’s a great coach. Thank you Tyla & Gymnasium!”
