Q. Can you pay as you go or do I need to sign up to the monthly challenge?
Yes we also offer a pay as you go scheme for all classes ranging from £3.40-£4.50.
Q. Am I fit enough to attend a class?
All of GFNE classes will help to improve your fitness and are suitable for all fitness levels. We have a large range of fitness levels in each class from experienced instructors to clients who are brand new to exercise and have never done a push up in their life’s! Remember- everyone has to start some where!
Q. I am new to fitness or haven't trained in a while, which class would you recommend that I start with?
With every class you can adapt the intensity to you suit, its not about competing with the person next to you or worry that you aren’t doing the same as other people in the class. We are all different and train at different paces, for this reason check out the class descriptions and decide which you would like to try first. Its half the battle if you enjoy the sessions! Let the instructor know it is your first class and we will look after you. All classes are suitable for all fitness levels!!!
