After many years of use, we’re finally moving away from our vast collection of fitness DVDs. The fitness classes will soon be moving to streamed classes in the gym that we trialled with all of our members remotely over the last couple of years while we had to remain closed.
The last couple of years have given us an opportunity to drag ourselves into the present and embrace what technology offers, and it’s made us realise that we’re way behind the times.
As a result, we’ve got a ton of old DVDs and CDs to get rid of, and we’d like to offer members a chance to buy them first, with all proceeds going to charity.
The CDs are mainly house music, as you’d imagine we have used a lot of music over the years for fitness classes, but that will also now be moving to streaming services as it’s just simpler and cheaper to keep up with and is covered under our licence to use in the gym and bar areas.
As the money raised will be going to local charities, we’re not going to strictly allocate prices to each title, but please give what you can, knowing it’s all going to a good cause.
If there is anything left when people stop flooding us with generous donations, we’ll make sure that the remaining CDs and DVDs are recycled wherever possible if we can’t even give them away!
We’ve also had a useful tip off from regular gym user Wayne that we can use some internet services to buy them too, but we want to give everyone who has supported us over the years first refusal. That’s for the tip off Wayne – we’ll look into that once everyone has had fair chance to grab what they want to buy!
