Christmas party or Zumba party?

Are you ready to party yourself into shape at Shene Sports & Fitness Centre?

If you haven’t heard of Zumba you have probably made a cozy home for yourself under a rock, but if you have and have still yet to try it, you’re missing out on a fun and effective workout that has taken the fitness world by storm.

Zumba is a calorie burning cardio workout that combines easy to follow dance moves with Latin beats. The class uses cardio intervals of Latin dance moves like salsa, merengue, cha cha, hip hop and more to tone your body and drop inches.

Zumba has such a huge following because it has wide appeal. It’s fun, a great workout and anyone can do it. There’s only one rule – keep moving!

While dancing in a huge crowd may have you feeling a little intimidated, the dance steps are very simple, perfect for beginners looking to up their activity level and try working out for the first time. It’s also great for people who love to dance, hate traditional cardio or those who are just looking to shake up their routine.

Zumba is available at Shene Sports & Fitness Centre at the following times:
Tuesday 10.15-11.15am
Thursday 10.15-11.15am

Click here for more information about the range of fitness classes available or call us on 020 8090 9630 to book a class today!

What are you waiting for…dance off those calories. There ain’t no party like a Zumba party!

Would you like to train for a career as a lifeguard?

Teddington Pools & Fitness Centre runs National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) courses throughout the year.

Lifeguards are an integral part of the staff at a swimming pool. They keep an eye on everything happening from poolside and are qualified to intervene and even save someone’s life if they are in trouble.
The role is nearly always offered on a part time basis and this flexibility means it is often taken up by young people at college or university. For many lifeguarding provides an excellent foundation for a career in the leisure industry – many pool managers began their professional careers as a lifeguard.

The UK National Pool Lifeguard Qualification is the most awarded lifeguard qualification in the UK and Ireland that complies with the industry requirements. This qualification is a recruitment requirement for a number of leisure jobs from Pool Lifeguard to Centre Manager. On successful completion of this course you will be fully qualified to work as a Pool Lifeguard in the UK.
The NPLQ course comprises both physical training and theoretical classroom work, followed by a water based practical test, dry assessment on pool rescue, first aid, CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and lifesaving skills.

All applicants must be 16 years or over.

The next course will be held from Monday 15 December to Saturday 20 December (Monday-Friday 8am-5pm and Saturday 8am-12noon)
