Fitness Trackers:

As you know, it’s not permitted to wear jewellery in class (with the exception of a wedding ring) for obvious reasons, including watches. We do however make an exception for sports bands worn specifically for the purpose of tracking exercise..However, we do need to clarify what is appropriate, and when they can be used:

What can you wear?
  • Wrist bands must be an appropriate sports band type, suitable for use in physical activities. i.e. small/subtle and with no sharp edges etc. See the picture for an example
  • Large/chunky sports watches are *not* appropriate
  • Children’s novelty ‘smart watches’ are not appropriate
  • No devices which have a camera or recording facility

When can you use it?
  • You wan wear a sports band on your wrist for any solo fitness training, warmups, line work etc.
  • They must be removed when doing any kind of partner exercise, including bag/pad training.
  • The band can be attached to your belt during partner drills.
If in doubt, please check with an instructor first, and obviously we cannot be responsible for loss/damage of any such devices you use in class.

 

Half term this week so I guess a few people will be away. A polite reminder though please – let us know in advance of class when you’re away.
It’s important that we’ve got the register marked up accurately for every class. This isn’t because we’re checking up on you – it’s very important for health & safety.
Imagine if the fire alarm went off at class change over time. We need to account for all the students, and if they’re not marked on the register as away then potentially we’re having to search the school for students who aren’t even on school property!
This applies to ALL students in all classes and is a condition of your membership so do please make every effort to let us know when you’re not coming to class.
Please text to 07973 368304 before class time as we check this when marking off the register.
Please don’t use Facebook etc. for important messages as this won’t be checked at the school.
Thanks!
