July 2023

(what’s on ?)

I’m finally set to take a break from work from the middle of the month! In spite of the unexpectedly fast delivery of my passport I am not heading anywhere too far away, but I’m looking forward to a week of walking in the Peak District followed by a week of something else (to be decided!)

However, it’s not holiday-time yet so here’s what is going on with tmf this month.

Online fitness for women

All classes are running as usual up to and including Friday 14th July:

ALL the online fitness classes are self-paced – meaning that you can push yourself as hard or as little as you like – and I always offer variations so that you can get the best workout for your body.

  • 40-fit Mondays @ 7pm – it’s always good to get a Monday workout in your week
  • metabolic fitness Tuesdays @ 7am – a really good start to your day!
  • functional fitness Wednesdays @ 7am – a perfect way to start the weekend…

All sessions via zoom. Find further details here

While I’m away, subscription members will have access to three new pre-recorded classes in the membership area. I will vary the formats a bit so you have something new to enjoy while I’m away. These pre-recorded classes will take the place of your week 3 sessions and week 4 will happen at the start of August once I get back from my break…


  • Online class Wednesdays @ 7pm – this session will run on 5th & 12th July and then have a two week break, resuming Wednesday 2nd August. Details here

    Subscription members will be able to access previous recordings in the membership area as usual while I’m away, and will also have access to the three pre-recorded fitness classes too.

In-person classes will be back on Friday 4th September. We meet in the very beautiful Kilndown village hall at 9.30am (term-times only). Booking is now open – details here. If you usually attend these sessions and find yourself missing them over the summer, why not join us on Wednesday evening on zoom instead?

Sports & clinical massage

I offer treatment for soft tissue injury or overuse issues, general niggles & chronic conditions such as low back pain, neck & shoulder tension, knee & hip pain.

I am also certified to offer pregnancy and post-natal massage, work with post-operative scar tissue and provide oncology massage.

I have a massage treatment room at my home in Cranbrook. Massage appointments in July are available on the following dates & times:

  • Tuesdays 4th & 11th July 3pm-9.30pm
  • Wednesdays 5th & 12th July 12.30pm-4pm
  • Thursdays 6th-13th July 1.15pm-8pm

Appointments can be booked here but please email me to discuss your treatment before booking if you have any questions about how I may be able to support you.

updates to online classes

And just like that we are 7 weeks in with online classes! I think we have all adapted so well to this significant shift in how we exercise, together-apart.

Thank you so much for staying with me as we have navigated through the technology along the way. For those of you that prefer to follow the videos rather than joining live, I miss seeing your face but I’m so happy to hear that you’re still moving.

For me, this is about so much more than keeping my business afloat. In the early days I felt like I wanted to offer something to the world without knowing how to offer it. I soon realised that the best help I could offer was to keep doing what I do, supporting you with fitness and movement to help keep you well. On one level it is a relatively insignificant thing, but actually I believe it is important for us all to keep active and keep some sort of routine in place. The enormity of the current situation is too huge to process and I hope that ‘coming’ to class helps you to step-away from it all for a while and re-connect with yourself on a regular basis.

Revised online class timetable:

Our online class timetable has evolved gradually over the past few weeks (and will probably continue to evolve) and I have made a few more changes this week. Classes on Mondays-Wednesdays are unchanged but I have changed things on Thursdays & Fridays (see details below).

online timetable

The 7am classes are designed to give you the chance to fit in some movement before you get busy with your day – if you are working from home or home-schooling, I hope it is early enough to fit around your working/schooling schedule, and if you’re not currently working, I hope it gives you a hint of a work-day routine and something to get up for.

Do please let me know if there are any other class formats or any one-off sessions that you would like me to add.

How to book:

All classes are booked online.

Payment can be made as a one-off booking or via a monthly class pass subscription which gives unlimited access to all sessions.

  • class descriptions can be found here
  • subscription details can be found here
  • classes can be booked here

When you book a one-off class, you will also receive a link to access the live recording afterwards so that you can ‘attend’ at a later time if your prefer. Live recordings will be available for 7 days after the class.

If you have a monthly class pass subscription, you will have access to recordings of all classes via your membership area, as well as all the ‘live’ sessions.

Let me know if you have any questions at all – I look forward to seeing you in the taylor-made fitness virtual studio very soon Jx
