ooh, good question! I have just reached the age of 50 and am very unfit (numerous health problems) and would love to find a really gentle exercise class.

Hi Auntie Pat..
Apparently The Bankside Health Club do such a class it is in the Blue Fin building, adjacent to Marks and Spencer on Southwark Street. Sounds Great. The good news is it is only 5 , the bad news is it is on a Wednesday at 3pm.

I work FT , so am looking for an evening class.

Any of you local gyms out there, got spare facilities after the mad office rush of workers have departed , THINK OF THE LOCAL RESIDENTS ! This could make you some money !!

The Colombo Centre in Colombo St used to do such things. Maybe they still do. Sorry, haven't had the chance to look them up yet but they were great.

In fact, I'd be interested so if you find out anything, please post.

OLDIES??? What shall I say? I'm twenty years older than you lot, and I still refuse to say I'm an oldy. I have been doing Pilates and it's marvellous.

The Colombo centre do a "senior " aerobics class on a tuesday morning but not sure what they mean by senior i.e senior citizen or just for older people. Again there is an assumption that older people are free during the day

why not lobby Southwark/Fusion/colombo centre-if enough interest is shown for an evening class they may take notice

The crypt is lovely and it's not too far away.
