Uist and Barra
Starting on Tuesday 14th April, staff based in Uist will be offering online fitness classes to the community in Uist and Barra. Nicola Lindsay Steele, Fitness Instructor and Kevin Morrison, Community Sports Hub Officer/Move More Activity officer will be offering the following activities:-
- FBX / GameFit – A twenty minute high intensity workout for regular class attenders.
- Moderate Circuit class – moderate intensity full body strength/Cardio combination lasting 30 minutes (including a 5 minute warm up and cool down). This can be done at home with no need for specific gym equipment. All welcome and participants are encouraged to work at a pace they are comfortable with while still making sure they are getting a worthwhile workout.
- 1 – 1 training and physical activity advice.
The timetable for these classes will be as follows:-

|Wednesday||FBX/GameFit||2pm and 7pm|
|Thursday||FBX/GameFit||2pm and 7pm||Moderate Circuits 10am|

All classes are free and you don’t have to have a ‘Slàinte Mhath’ membership to join in. Customers using Connect, our online booking system, will get first chance to book when classes go live for bookings and some classes will have limited numbers to ensure that the Instructor can monitor all customers appropriately. There will be a waiting list option available if classes are full. Classes can be booked in advance and customers need to select LSC on the online booking form, to book a place.
How do I book onto a class?
Classes will be delivered online using a combination of methods including Zoom. You will be contacted by Sport and Health staff with more specific instructions before your first class with an explanation of how the activity you are interested in will be delivered.
A spokesperson said: “These are uncharted waters for us all and there are bound to be some issues initially but rest assured we will do our best to resolve them. We think it is important that we maintain as much of a sense of community and normality in these difficult times as we can – and a familiar face can make such a difference from an anonymous class found on You Tube!
Thanks again for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you next week!”
