gyms and fitness videos - what's good that's local and workable around the kids?


Recommended Posts

Morning all - after the third night of cocktail experimentation and early rising little darlings I'm thinking about all the chocs/turkey/nuts/alcohol I've consumed (Beth I hope you are not reading this) and ways of getting really trim in 2011.

I have a wonderful trainer (the aforementioned Beth) but need to supplement these training sessions with the gym (as it's freezing outside) and/or fitness videos. I've done Davina to death...

- has anyone got one of the new batch of fitness videos that they can recommend (bearing in mind I 'fall off' the step in step class so nothing too choreographed);-)

- can recommend a really good local gym (ideally with pool). This is my (ahem) treat to myself so could even go a bit posh on this (not sure there is a posh gym around here though??) I was considering Crystal Palace, Peckham Pulse, Dulwich Hamlets.. something with classes during the day would be really good.

Not sure about Dulwich Leisure Centre - is the gym still a duffer??

I'd really appreciate any help - and of course if anyone wants a seriously malcoordinated gym buddy.......... ;-)?

Crystal Palace for serious swimming (50m pool thats often empty, but not great if you don't swim well as its a bit deep and scary).

Otherwise I'm also a fan of Beckenham - fab creche open every morning that takes them from 6 weeks (I think) and a good range of classes, plus a decent 25m pool. I'm a member for me and my little girl, and we get 3 hours free creche and unlimited classes/pool/spftplay etc for just over ?40 a month. Takes 15/20 mins on a normal run from Ryedale.

    • I’m registered with Tessa Jowell health centre, when my teen was struggling with anxiety he saw a lovely mental health nurse who was very thorough and patient. 
    • Sorry I've been away for a few days!  The neighbour has finally agreed to provide a notice. I had to quote the goverment website on my texts to him. And I've since spoken to his surveyor. The surveyor said they weren't entirely sure if an agreement was needed due to the way the chimney breasts were being removed but they've checked and they do. Sounds like backtracking to me but at least they're playing ball! I did also say that if they were removing/cutting internal and external structural walls and adding beams that also counts as party structures (as it affects their ceiling/my floor - so let's see). Surveyor's coming over to introduce himself tomorrow, a notice will be issued this week and then my surveyor can be appointed. The freeholder hasn't come back on the building insurance question yet but I chased this week. It's all in writing though. Thank you all for the help you've provided. I have a feeling this neighbour will cut corners given half the chance so knowing an agreeement will be in place is a huge help.
    • I think the team at FitFor (used to be ESPH) by the cinema on Lordship Lane are really good. I busted my knee earlier this year and they got me back running.
