Next Meetup

1st timers Free Combat Fitness/Kickboxing class!
New to group? - It will be an introduction to kickboxing and our unique combat inspired fitness. It will assume no prior fitness level and be suitable for everyone. All you need is comfortable clothes and trainers. There is a free, private car park accessed via Lauriston gardens (closes 9.45pm) and there are changing rooms, toilets, showers and a water fountain. Plan is to meet at 5.45pm inside the school. I will send directions and further details the day before to those who RSVP YES. Usually McSorley's Bar reserve tables, provide free food and very cheap drinks for us after class. As there is football on we cannot go today (for 1 day only), rather instead straight after class at 7pm everyone will sit in the seated area of the school and have a chat and socialise for a little bit. I will bring food and drink but feel free to bring any snacks. Bring friends (can work together and there's a reward if you do) but it's equally fine on your own too. You’ll have the opportunity to socialise with about 25 (additional from the meetup RSVP total) people during and after the class. There's around 150 active members training each week in the club. What you see on meetup is just a tiny fraction of everything going on as we have lots of other classes and lots of social events but we invite people this event first where we will tell you about everything else going on. All spaces will go so RSVP YES now to avoid disappointment.

What we're about

Public Group

This group offers a wide variety of fitness and social events and brings together like minded people. The strong social element enhances the fitness aspect and make it much more enjoyable.

We are aware everyone has different likes and goals, and so offer people a variety of options to suit their needs. We have 6 high energy, fun, kickboxing and combat-inspired fitness classes a week. This will suit all those who want to lose weight, tone up, meet new people in a very fun and friendly environment.

Any fitness level is welcome and everything is optional. However, through these high intensity classes you’ll find you get extremely fit very quickly and if have any weight to lose it will drop off.

We pride ourselves on our welcoming and friendly atmosphere in class. We also have 4 weekly trips to our sponsor bar after classes where we get free food and cheap drinks in our own area. People enjoy the very relaxed atmosphere, meet new people, arrange social events together...etc.

Furthermore, we have lots of additional social events where we encourage people to make friends, network, have fun and generally help each other however we can.

Our classes are be held inside:

St Thomas of Aquins school, 2-20 Chalmers St, Edinburgh, EH3 9ES

There is a free private car park accessed via Lauriston Gardens, changing rooms and showers.

Our sponsor bar is only a few minutes walk from class - McSorleys, 14 Forrest Road, EH1 2QN or you can park outside for free all days except Saturday.
