December 2019 Newsletter


Welcome to our final festive season here at Shop 63, our 40th year in this trusty old building because this time next year we will be in our superbly fitted out, brand new home just across the main shopping mall about 500 meters from here.

The club’s big Christmas party will be a smaller occasion this year as it is late on Saturday 14th December & many of you already have prior engagements & other parties to go to, alas it was the only date available to us at the selected venue of Whitford Brewing Company here in our own Westfield mall.

On Christmas Eve 24th December 2019 we will commence the usual Xmas tapered GX-Schedule, we are again very happy to be delivering even more GX classes than in 2018/19 & that was a record number of sessions in itself.

Hope that all you group fitness fanatics get stuck into the classes & pack the wide array of sessions out so that we see value in doing the same next year in our new club venue. Please see your copy on the club Instagram, Facebook & website as well as on the main club reception desk for your ease of participation.

A wholesale change to the mainline GX Schedule is the new look Saturday mornings which will commence Saturday 14th December 2019. Hala & her team of Club Fiesta instructors like Aggi will now run a treble class split into 2 x 30-minute sessions & one by 60-minute classic Club Fiesta. The back to back sessions will run for 2 hours from 0830am to 1030am every Saturday morning.

Hala’s initial duo is called Fiesta Hour of Power & starts with a core focusing abs buts & thighs 30-minute freestyle session, this is followed by a freestyle body bar pump session akin to an express body balance class. Then the second hour is Hala’s classic raving Club Fiesta.

Non-members who follow Hala around Perth’s venues can now pay a reduced $15 for all 3 classes, all 2 hours of motivational, invigorating exercise in our vibrant GX Zone. Whether you elect to participate in any one of or all three sessions the price is the same great value pack of $15 per entrance.

As to the club’s operation? Please note the shortened festive season staffed hours between Christmas Day & New Year’s Day as usual. The creche girls will also take their usual annual leave over the same week. The only days we are closed to staffed hours are the main public holidays of Christmas Day, Boxing Day & New Year’s Day.

See you all in the new year.

Last but not least we bid a fond farewell to the ever-present, loyal fitness follower Mrs. Veronica Hunt who has been a member here since the club doors opened back in the late 1970’s. Veronica said her knees & hips no longer afford her the agility she once had & is regretfully retiring form the fitness world. We thank you for your loyal patronage & wish you a happy outdoor, aqua-based lifestyle Veronica. Take care & we will miss you as will all your friends here in the club.

Merry Christmas all members & a Happy New Year, Daniel
