Group leader:  Sally Merrett
Time:  See List Below
Venue:  Denia Fitness Centre



Update - July 6th 2018

In addition to the Pilates classes (see below), the 'Back Health' class on Monday at 10:30 am with Susie is available to U3A members as an alternative option to the suspended U3A Monday Pilates class. The cost is the same as the U3A class, 3.50 Euros.

Pilates - 25th June 2018 - Update from David Ord (Group Leader) The temporary absence of Miguel has become permanent. He has officially resigned from Denia Fitness Centre and we wish him well in his new career.

As a consequence, it is highly unlikely that the U3A Pilates class will begin again until after the summer, probably the first week or so in September.

In the meantime, anyone can join the Spanish Pilates classes on Tuesday and Thursday at 9:30 am with Lourdes as the teacher or the special Pilates based 'Espalda Sana - Healthy Back' class given by Susanna at 10:30 on Monday mornings. The cost of these classes will be the same as for the U3A class throughout the summer.

I will endeavor to keep you all apprised of any changes.

Yoga - Updated 31 May 2018 - This group goes through the Summer if there are sufficient numbers but will not take place on 12th & 19th July and Katy, our teacher is on holiday.

Pilates Monday 12:00 p.m. Group Leader: David Ord

Summary of the contract between
U3A DENIA AND Denia Centro de Fitness (DFC)

Denia U3A pays DFC 500€ in order to facilitate and subsidise centre usage by Denia U3A members. For obvious reasons this offer only applies to Denia U3A members. This includes:

1. No joining fee (and the flexibility of cancelling membership for a period of time that a member cannot attend the fitness centre).

2. Monthly gym membership: 31€ (includes access to all areas and all classes).

3. Annual membership fee: 350€ (and flexibility of suspending membership for a period of time that a member cannot attend the fitness centre).

4. Day pass: 6€ (Includes one class either U3A or a class of DFC and use of gym, pool, Jacuzzi, steam room etc.)

5. Entrance to Denia U3A classes & joint classes: 3.50€
Joint classes refer to Zumba and Aquagym which are normal classes that are open to Denia U3A members at the reduced price above.

6. Members who use the facilities, but avoid registering and paying for a class, will be charged at the full day pass rate of 10€. Members should always have their membership cards so that they have proof of current year’s membership in order to take advantage of the special price.

DFC agrees to provide 3 specific classes for Denia U3A members, as follows:

Monday: ​12:00 - 13:00 ​​Pilates ​​​

Thursday:​ 10:00 – 11:00​​ Yoga​​

Friday: ​​11:30 – 12:30. ​​Circuit Training

Joint classes: See the fitness centre timetable for timings

In addition, other classes may be negotiated dependent upon sufficient demand from U3A members. If a group of 5 or 6 people want a particular class that the fitness centre could provide, contact the DFC co-ordinator so that this option can be investigated.

DFC reserves the right:
a. To change times of classes
b. To change the instructor
c. To cancel a class due to staff holidays or if appropriate cover cannot be found.

DFC agrees that even if only 1 client arrives for any class, the class will still be held should the client so wish. However, if this happens over a period of time in a specific U3A class, then DFC reserves the right to either cancel or change the class after discussions with the relevant group leader.
