Optional monthly memberships are being reintroduced in October (you can still pay per session if you prefer). Monthly membership means discounted rates and no advanced booking/cancellations, just turn up and tick the register :) Just like the good old days :) There are now no cancellation penalties when you book the class in advance and *cancel online* any time *before the class starts*. I understand sometimes you just can't make a class, it may be due to work or you feel a little meh! - just make sure you cancel online before the class starts and you will get your credit returned. If you pay for classes electronically (bank transfer/ paypal) by buying class credits and aren't a monthly community class member, please continue to book classes online - or alternatively turn up and pay cash when you come if you find that easier :)

Monday 30th August - Bank Holiday - NO classes are running.

Wednesday 25th August - CHANGE OF VENUE - Lovat Hall is unavailable at short notice, so we are at Newport Pagnell Youth Club for 18:45 instead.

May - July 2021 :

Indoor Classes

Indoor classes are currently running. You can BOOK my community classes online and BUY CLASS CREDITS now.

Covid-19 update for my community classes (19th July 2021) :

There will be little change to the restrictions I currently have in place. Fans will be trialled at open doorways to bring in more fresh air and I will ask for your feedback after class. I am now dropping the QR codes, as they were rarely used, but you still need to let me know if you test positive for Covid-19 and have attended a community class within the last 2 weeks.
My current maximum community class size restrictions will remain as they are for now, as feedback from people in the last couple of weeks, shows that the majority of you still want to have a fair amount of space around you in class. Before, during and after class, I therefore ask people to be mindful that although social distancing regulations will no longer be in force within the UK, some people (including me) would prefer it if you could still keep a little distance, so please continue to do so.
I'm remaining on the cautious side and will continue to keep myself updated with the situation, current stats and advice from the sports bodies and will continue to use my own cautious common sense. I want to make sure each and every one of you continues to feel comfortable within my community classes, which allow us to concentrate on all of the healthy benefits of exercising in a fun way, without the worry. Thank you for your support!

January - mid May 2021 :

Classes continue online in 2021. Unfortunately real life classes are unable to run until further notice, but will resume when it is safe to do so. Under current restrictions, adult indoor exercise classes are expected to resume as part of the UK Stage 3 lockdown exit plan, which is expected to commence on Monday 17th May 2021 (please be aware dates and restrictions may change).

January 2021 :

Classes continue online as we enter 2021. Unfortunately real life classes are unable to run until further notice, but will resume when it is safe to do so. Under current restrictions, indoor exercise classes can only take place in UK Tiers 1 & 2. Please check the UK Government website or the local news to check which tier we are currently in.

Online there are 6 classes a day to choose from :

SIX classes daily : 2 x ZUMBA dance fitness, 2 x ZUMBA low impact gold and 2 x ZUMBA toning (using light hand weights).
Classes are available to view/stream each day (available for 24 hours).
£10 per month for unlimited access : ONLINE CLASSES

December 2020 :

UPDATE - From 19th December 2020 : real life classes are no longer running until further notice. Milton Keynes and Newport Pagnell enter Tier 3 on the 19th, closely followed by Tier 4 on the 20th of December. Currently indoor exercise classes can only take place in Tiers 1 & 2. They will resume once we are able.

Classes are still running online and there are 6 classes a day to choose from during December :

Online ZUMBA classes

SIX classes daily : 2 x ZUMBA dance fitness, 2 x ZUMBA low impact gold and 2 x ZUMBA toning (using light hand weights).
Classes are available to view/stream each day (available for 24 hours).
£10 per month for unlimited access : ONLINE CLASSES

News update 1st December : The Sports Bodies have now had more information and clarification from the Government regarding Indoor Exercise Classes in the UK (from December 2nd) and have just published them (on November 30th). It was still as clear as mud - but thankfully then got clarified even further.
So, in Tier 1 & 2 - we can basically have multiple groups of the 'rule of 6' in the same class. Given that most people attend a class as an individual and not in a household bubble, we can just classify each individual as a separate bubble/'rule of 6' and have lots of individuals ('rule of 6') in the same room. Got it ??? In other words, we basically need to adhere to all of the Covid-19 precautions and rules that we were following before (in late July - early Nov.) and can continue as we were.
I cancelled all my hall hires for December, but have now gone back to the hall hirers to see if they are still available.

Gym classes : Stantonbury - running as normal. Wolverton - running as normal, with Friday class time change to noon. Middleton Pool - Zumba classes restart in January (most other classes there are still running in December).

ALL classes will be back on 4th January 2021 onwards (assuming we're not in Tier 3 and that the rules haven't changed).
Hope that makes all makes sense! - any questions just ask!

November 2020 :

News update 24th November : Following on from the Government announcement on 23rd November - England exits Lockdown 2 and enters a 3 tiered regional system on Wednesday December 2nd 2020. This is expected to last until the end of March 2021. Regardless of which tier we are placed into locally, my Community Classes are unable to recommence as I am restricted to teaching only 5 people (in tier 1 and 2, and none in tier 3) and this is just not financially viable. The gyms will need to make some tough decisions and I will update you when I hear from them.

July - October 2020 :

REAL LIFE CLASSES are back! AND the online journey continues, with access to classes all day, every day. Some of my real life classes started back up again on July 30th 2020, others will start in September. There have been a few timetable changes, so please check it out.

Check out both timetables :

real life classes

online classes (available 24 hours a day)

July 2020 :

zumba classes online

(updated 19/07/2020 22:30)

Online classes :

Online classes will continue until the end of the year (2020).

Community Classes :

Oakgrove School, MK - should resume beginning of August (need to submit more paperwork and get confirmation)
Lovat hall, NP
- aiming to resume at some point in September (will receive an update in August)
Youth Club, NP - unable to resume until current restrictions eased* - BUT have a cunning plan and hope to resume in September
Green Park (Gold) - unable to resume until current restrictions eased*
* hall size and space per person requirements, with current restrictions placed from 25th July, do not allow enough people to attend to make it financially viable (or fun!)

Gyms :

Wolverton Pool & Fitness Centre - reopens July 27th. ZUMBA fitness restarts usual time 6-6.45 pm Thursdays. I'm also covering maternity leave for Bekki (until further notice) on Fridays 12.15 - 1pm. You will need to book in advance.
Middleton Pool & Fitness Centre - reopens August 3rd. ZUMBA fitness restarts on Tuesday Aug 4th at the slightly later time of 7.15 - 8 pm. ZUMBA Gold restarts on Friday Aug 7th 10-10.45 am. You will need to book in advance via their app or reception as numbers will be restricted. Please remember to keep your distance from other participants and don't forget your water.
GYM MK (Stantonbury Leisure Centre) - reopens 27th July, they have been in contact and are currently looking at the timetable.
Freedom Fitness - waiting for an update.

(Posted 12th July)
25th July 2020: : Gyms are allowed to reopen from the 25th July in the UK, but there are a myriad of restrictions for indoor group exercise classes, which include classes in the community. Class sizes will be restricted, so there is 1 person per 16 metres squared (including me), we can't use fans or recirculating aircon, music can't be loud - as shouting is banned. I can of course mic. up for new tracks and use my usual signalling for moves. The biggest issue is whether the number of participants allowed is financially feasible for each community venue and that is what I am working on at the moment - I'm waiting for hall hirers to confirm hall dimensions and whether they are willing to let us recommence our hall hire. Meanwhile - the online classes continue!

Out of the 4 gyms I work at, Wolverton Gym, have confirmed that classes will resume from the 27th July, as they have a massive studio - I am waiting to hear from the other 3 - I will update you as I get news.

April - July 2020 :

My ZUMBA fitness & ZUMBA GOLD classes are running online. I've had great feedback so far, so if you want to join in the fun, please check out the online timetable or contact me directly for more information. They will continue to run online, whilst we are unable to run the classes in the the real world (UK Covid-19 regulations).

April 2020 :

All classes are now running online until further notice.

March 2020 :

Updated March 21st....

ALL Zumba classes in the real world are cancelled as of today until further notice, due to the Government decision to close all gyms at end of play March 20th. I am entering into the digital world and will be issuing usernames and passwords to people very shortly, starting with my Pay Monthly Community members (I will then roll it out to others - I just have much to sort out as you can imagine). I'm just currently struggling with video formats, but am on the case! Take care you lot - you will see me digitally very soon x

Updated March 18th ...only 3 classes cancelled so far, 8 are still running. ALL gym classes are continuing at the moment, I will inform you here if any are cancelled, otherwise just assume they are going ahead. My corporate class and some of my community classes are now cancelled due to the venues themselves cancelling.

Monday - NP Youth Club 6.15 pm - Zumba fitness - *ON*
Monday - Oakgrove School 8pm - !!CANCELLED!! until further notice (cancelled by the school)
Tuesday - Mercedes-Benz corporate class 5.30pm - !!CANCELLED!! until further notice (cancelled by Mercedes-Benz)
Tuesday - Middleton Pool 7pm - Zumba fitness - *ON*
Wednesday - Green Park Community Centre 11.15am - Zumba Gold - *ON* - last class 25/03/2020 until further notice
Wednesday - Lovat Hall 6.45pm - Zumba fitness - !!CANCELLED!! until further notice (Church shut, apart from blood donations)
Thursday - Stantonbury Leisure Centre 10.30am- Zumba Gold - *ON*
Thursday - Wolverton Pool and Fitness Centre 6pm - Zumba fitness - *ON*
Friday - Middleton Pool 10am - Zumba Gold - *ON*
Friday - Stantonbury Leisure Centre 6pm - Zumba fitness - *ON*
Saturday - Freedom Fitness 10am - Zumba fitness - *ON*

I am busy setting up a home studio and will be offering my community class members my classes online. Watch this space. I just need to change the background, as my hair blends in with the wall behind and I look like I have no hair.

If you are an Unlimited Monthly Member or PAYG participant of my community classes and intend to drop out of the Youth Club classes, please let me know as soon as you can as I need to keep an eye on numbers and possibly cancel the hall hire. The town council want me to give them 2-4 weeks notice, which is obviously really difficult to do at this moment in time, so I am trying to renegotiate terms with them.

Stay fit and well people. Maddi x

I'm keeping up with official guidelines on a daily basis regarding Covid-19 and also receiving updates from the hall hirers and gyms, as well as keeping myself aware of the ongoing situation. Changes we need to adhere to :

* I will call out a register from now on, so you don't need to sign in .
* You are advised to not touch your face with your hands - so if you want to bring a little towel to wipe sweat away from your face, that's fine.
* If you pay as you go, you may wish to bring the correct change and throw it at me.
* If you have a persistent cough, high temperature or feel unwell, then please don't come to class.
* If you need to cough or sneeze, cover your mouth with a tissue (then go and bin it and wash your hands) or cough/sneeze into the inside of your elbow.
* Keep a slight distance from others.

If you have a concern, then please contact me, otherwise see you in class.

January 2020 :

Directions : On the corner of V10 / H7. Entrance to carpark is off the V10. As you walk away from the carpark, towards the school, go through the gates on the LEFT at the end of the zebra crossing (away from reception), the building is through the gates and on your left.

ZUMBA gold - the easier option

Wednesdays, 11.14 am, Green Park Community Centre, Newport Pagnell

If the ZUMBA fitness classes are a little too crazy for you and you want something a little slower and easier, then the ZUMBA gold classes are a good choice. The moves are softer on the body joints and the choreography is a little easier to learn. Most of the music is different, woth different moves to match. Some people enjoy coming to both the ZUMBA fitness and the ZUMBA gold classes for the variety (see flyer below for my ZUMBA gold community class).

November 2017 :

** MORE NEW CLASSES ** - check out the Zumba Classes tab above for full details, or see below :

ZUMBA gold : Thursday 10.30 - 11.15 am - GYM MK, Stantonbury Leisure Centre. Join us for a low impact, low intensity version of ZUMBA at GYM MK, Stantonbury Arts & Leisure Centre every Thursday at 10.30 am. The class runs for 45 minutes, then we have a cuppa in the Art Gallery above the Theatre - fitness & culture in one outing :D

ZUMBA fitness : Thursday 6 - 6.45 pm - Wolverton Swimming & Fitness Centre. All the crazy fun of ZUMBA fitness in a large mirrored studio.

October 2017 :

Classes NOT running this month :

Tuesday 10th & 31st October - Freedom Fitness @ Mercedes (private corporate class) - conference room unavailable due to events.

** NEW CLASS - ZUMBA GOLD ** : Wednesdays 11.15 am, Green Park Community Centre, Green Park Drive, Newport Pagnell, MK16 0NH. 45 minutes plus a cuppa. Starts Wednesday 4th October. This is an easier, low intensity class geared towards beginners, the older generation and people new to exercise.

TIME CHANGE - Zumba Gold is now at 11.15 am on Wednesdays! We are now starting the class at a slightly later time, to allow the hall hirer before enough time to vacate the premises. This gives me enough time to get in and take the register and for you ladies to have a few minutes catch up, before we start the actual class at 11.15am. I'll be there every week at 11am. We'll still have a cup of tea & coffee afterwards :)

August 2017 :

Classes NOT running this month :

Saturday 12th August - Freedom Fitness. I'm unavailable and most participants and cover instructors are away on holiday, so we decided to cancel the class just this once.

May 2017 :

2nd May & 30th May - Classes at NCI are not running on the mornings after the Bank Holidays.

April 2017 :

Easter Break - The last class before Easter is Wednesday 12th April at Lovat Hall, we then break for a long Easter weekend. Classes start running again from Wednesday 19th April at Lovat Hall.

Monday evening and Saturday morning classes no longer running - the ladies only gym in Newport Pagnell has closed it doors, more specifically the new owners and landlord could not agree to the terms of the new tenancy agreement. So Monday evening and Saturday morning classes are no longer for the time being. I'm investigating the possibility of new classes, so please check back at the end of April / beginning of May.
It's so sad, I'd just been offered a new Thursday evening class there, on top of the two popular classes I was already running, but alas it was not to be. It's broken apart a lovely local community of nearly 200 ladies (I will miss those of you I met), plus 3 local residents have lost work. That little gym meant a lot to me.... I participated in my first ever Zumba class many years ago at that very gym, funnily enough I thought it was a bit weird, I didn't get the whoop whoop thing... but I persevered and tried more classes and then it clicked...and I was totally hooked! Thus my Zumba journey began and I then went on to participate in 2-3 classes a week. I tried pretty much every other class out there, but nothing was as great as Zumba fitness...then I decided I loved it so much, I wanted to teach the classes. So eventually, over 3 years ago, I started my first ever Zumba class in Lovat Hall with 5 friends, then in May I opened out the class to the public.... arghhhh ... it was crazy...what was I doing ??!!** Then, a friend said she wanted to do my classes twice a week, so I decided to start another class in North Crawley Village.... and the story continues..... I'm still at Lovat Hall and NCI in North Crawley Village and I'm also teaching on a Friday night at GYM MK Stantonbury Leisure Centre :)

New classes - With regard to the above I am investigating the possibility of new classes and hope to have some new classes running in May 2017. Please check back at the end of April beginning of May.

March 2017 :

11th March - Temporary phone number for energie for women, Newport Pagnell is : 07391-217713. This will revert back to the old number within a week or so and I will update you here.

November 2014 :
The 3 Zumba Fitness classes at the i-Centre will no longer be running as of 18th November 2014. Unfortunately, the large dance studio there is closing. I've been offered their other studio for the classes, but need to shuffle the days and times for the classes round a bit. In addition, we can only use that studio in our bare feet. Whilst some of you are keen to Zumba in bare feet, I'm not entirely happy doing so, as your foot needs good support for the range of movements that we do. As it's nearing the end of the year, I've decided to revisit the issue in 2015. So please check back here for new classes that may be added. The classes at Lovat Hall and North Crawley Institute are not effected by this and continue as normal.
