October 2016 Update

Autumn Activities

October has seen the new BHSG venture ‘Duo’ get underway. We are trialling a new venue in Wester Hailes for the introduction of ‘Duo’ and at a new time of 4pm-4.30pm. It is a half hour of high intensity workout, and already proving very popular.  Parents can bring their children to the group; the babies can stretch out on the mats and the older children play in the hall while the adults exercise in pairs, helping to motivate each other with Alicia’s guidance and some great tunes. Plenty room for all.

31st October/Nov 1st  has seen the start of our new autumn term for Adult Cooking, Women’s Aerobics, Tone & Flex, Buggygym and Baby’s First Foods( Weaning Group) and Cooking up a Story with our Chair Exercise and Walking Group
