What is the Minety Fitness Club?

The Club was formed in 1990 as part of a District Council fitness initiative in North Wiltshire villages. It is now run entirely as a non-profit making village club aimed at helping people acquire an hour of exercise locally once a week.

 Why should you take part?

If you are not basically fit, you won’t be able to enjoy taking part in exercise or sport. In fact, if you are really unfit, you won’t be able to do much more than walk short distances and sit around! You will also not feel as well as someone who leads a more active life.

You can take part for general health, mental well-being, specific sports training or for social and recreational reasons.

Who should take part?

There are no prerequisites in terms of your level of fitness. The club allows people to work at a rate appropriate to them. Minety Fitness Club has always attracted a wide range of people, whether young or old, male or female. Everyone is welcome.

What affects your fitness?

Research suggests that there is a decline in physical performance of about one to two per cent per year. This is partly caused by a reduction in the amount of exercise taken. Studies show that most people gain about a pound of fat and lose up to half a pound of muscle each year (starting in their 30s).

The amount and the type of exercise that you do will influence your level of fitness. The more exercise you do, the better your level of fitness.

It is well known that physical activity is also a good way to reduce stress levels and to help you deal better with stress when it happens.

How much does it cost?

The cost is £2.50 per session.

How do I join?

If you think that you might be interested in joining the Minety Fitness Club, please come along to the Village Hall on a Wednesday evening at 8.00 p.m. (For more information contact Rob Hilliar: 860466).
