Fitness Classes

Outdoor Bootcamp

Tuesday, 10am and 5pm/ Thursday 10am and 5pm

We are delighted to now be able to offer outdoor classes! For many people who weren’t able to exercise for the months of lockdown, the ability to get back to a real life class again has been really important. With this in mind, outdoor classes are suitable for everyone of all fitness levels and whether you were able to keep active for the past few months or did little or no exercise, our outdoor classes are suitable for everyone.

No equipment is necessary but we ask you to bring your own mat and resistance band if you have one (we can provide if not). Classes are 40 minutes long and include cardio and core with Tuesday classes focussing on a lower body workout and Thursday classes focussing on upper body. We have a quiet outdoor space with plenty of tree cover for any adverse weather the Irish summer throws at us!

All of our classes are designed so that you can sign up for as many classes per week as you would like, in whatever combination of virtual and outdoor suits you. Particularly at the moment, we pride ourselves in providing a supportive, friendly class environment that is sympathetic to the difficult times we have all been through recently and the inevitable impact that has had on our health and mental wellbeing.

PAR Q FORM

PARQ Form

  • Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire – PAR-Q

  • Date Format: DD slash MM slash YYYY
    Enter your DOB
  • PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

    Regular physical activity is fun and healthy, and increasingly more people are starting to become more active every day. Being more active is very safe for most people. However, some people should check with their doctor before they start becoming much more physically active. If you are planning to become much more physically active than you are now, start by answering the six questions below. If you are between the ages of 15 and 69, the PAR-Q will tell you if you should check with your doctor before you start. Please read the questions carefully and answer each one honestly by checking YES or NO
  • Has your doctor ever said that you have a heart condition or that you should only do physical activity recommended by a doctor?
  • Do you feel pain in your chest when you do physical activity?
  • Do you lose your balance because of dizziness or do you ever lose consciousness?
  • Do you have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse by physical activity?
  • Is your doctor currently prescribing drugs for your blood pressure or a heart condition?
  • Do you know of any other reason why you should not do physical activity?
  • If you answered YES to one or more questions

    Talk with your doctor BEFORE you start becoming much more physically active or BEFORE you have a fitness appraisal. Tell your doctor about the PAR-Q and which questions you answered YES to. You may be able to do any activity you want – as long as you start slowly and build up gradually. Or, you may need to restrict your activities to those which are safe for you. Talk with your doctor about the kinds of activities you wish to participate in and follow their advice.
  • If you answered NO

    If you answered NO honestly to all PAR-Q questions, you can be reasonably sure that you can Start becoming much more physically active – begin slowly and build up gradually. This is the safest and easiest way to go. Take part in a fitness appraisal. This is an excellent way to determine your basic fitness so that you can plan the best way for you to live actively. It is also highly recommended that you have your blood pressure evaluated. If your reading is over 144/94, talk with your doctor before you start becoming much more physically active.
  • Delay becoming more active: •

    If you are not feeling well because of a temporary illness such as cold or a fever, wait until you feel better; or if you are or may be pregnant, talk to your doctor before you start becoming more active. Please note: If your health changes so that you then answer YES to any of the above questions, tell your fitness or health professional. Ask whether you should change your physical activity plan.
  • Informed Use of the PAR-Q:

    Intelligent Fitness and their agents assume no liability for persons who undertake physical activity, and if in doubt after completing this questionnaire consult your doctor prior to physical activity. I have read, understood and completed this questionnaire. Any questions I had were answered to my full satisfaction
  • Sign as best you can - don't worry if its not great!

The current class timetable is as follows:

Virtual Bootcamp

Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10am

As of Monday 16th March, when our gym closed its doors due to COVID-19, we have been running regular virtual Zoom fitness classes. These classes began as a vital way for people to connect and remain active in difficult times, and we have made the decision to carry on running them now that life is starting to get back to normal.

If you are working from home, are minding small children or have health concerns around attending a “real life” class, our Zoom classes are for you! No equipment is needed and they are suitable for all fitness levels. Once you sign up, you will be added to a Whatsapp group where the class link is posted – just click on the link to join the class!

All three of the weekly classes are 40 minutes and include a full body workout using bodyweight or things you will have easy access to at home (a chair for example). Besides working each muscle group, each class has an extra focus – on Monday it’s cardio, Wednesday is core and Friday is yoga (it is Friday after all!).

We will continue to run Zoom classes beyond the re-opening of the gym because they have proved so popular!

Meredith is a fantastic trainer, very focused on the needs of her clients and always coming up with new innovative ways to keep us all motivated. During the COVID-19 lockdown, she started daily Zoom classes which have certainly got me fitter and have also done my mental health a world of good. Combined with the outdoor classes, it’s a winning combination!
Without the Zoom classes and all the support from Intelligent Fitness, I’m not sure where I would be at this moment in time.

I only started with Meredith at the beginning of Lockdown so I have only ever experienced Intelligent Fitness classes online and I couldn’t recommend them more!! A serious workout from the comfort of your own home 💪. No equipment needed so no added expense. 👍 

I have never actually met Meredith in person but I couldn’t feel any more comfortable doing her class (you can always turn your camera off if you are having an off day!!). Meredith creates a very welcoming, safe and comfortable space for her online sessions 🥰👍💪.

Thanks so much Meredith. 😘
