New Virtual Class studio set to launch at East Riding Leisure Goole

Mon, 17 Feb 2020

The new studio at East Riding Leisure Goole, which can take up to 40 people in a class, is the latest to be redeveloped in East Riding Leisure with a virtual instructor system delivering the latest Les Mills branded exercise classes. The studio, in the old function room, has been completely refurbished with new lighting, sound system and equipment.

As well as being the home for most of the centre's instructor-led classes, the new studio will offer a range of virtual classes, making it easier for customers to attend their favourite Les Mills class, whilst also introducing some exciting new classes into the programme.

The new Virtual studio will show world-leading Les Mills instructors being beamed onto a large screen to deliver a selection of new classes, which include Sh'Bam, Barre and Grit Strength, Grit Cardio and Grit Plyo, a range of 30 minute HITT classes.

The centre's new class programme will launch on Monday, 24 February.

An open weekend will take place on Saturday 22 and Sunday, 23 February, where instructors will be available to help introduce customers to the new classes, discuss the new class programme, conduct tours around the centre's other facilities and give advice on memberships and the centre's other activities.

Dave Halkon, General Manager of East Riding Leisure Goole, said: "This investment has given us the opportunity to re-invent our exercise class programme and helped us to provide additional classes and a more varied programme of exercise for customers. I hope all customers, new and existing, will take the opportunity to visit our new studio and try a class maybe for the first time or a completely different one, if they are regular customers."

To support the opening weekend, the centre's Cafe Vibe will be offering free tea and coffee afterwards to class participants.

The launch of the new programme creates some space in the centre's sports hall and the centre would like to hear from any clubs, community groups or organisations which would like to develop new activities at the centre.

Dave Halkon added: "We'd be interested in working with any organisations who can help us to support people to be more physically, mentally and socially active and improve the community's health and wellbeing."
