If conventional gyms and health clubs give you a phobia, then Gymophobics is the place for you.
Members feel very comfortable at Gymophobics; There are no mirrors, no pictures of the 'ideal' body and no distracting TV screens or blaring dance tunes. The women-only concept is also very appealing, as is the amount of personal attention that our staff offer each and every member.
Mixed health clubs and conventional gyms can be intimidating with little or no input from staff and an over emphasis on youth, weight training, aerobics and high impact exercise. Whatever your age, if you are female and lack confidence in your figure, the last place you want to be is a gym full of stick thin super models and men sprouting muscles in all the right places!
Gymophobics however is different. Each session on our specially designed exercise circuit takes just 30 minutes and your personal programme takes your age and fitness into account. Our members ages range from as young as 12 to ladies in their 70's. Whatever your age, size or shape, Gymophobics makes exercise fun even if you have never exercised before. Our unique exercise circuit features specially designed equipment with women in mind. Each machine is silky smooth to use and adjusted at the touch of a button. There are no clanking weights to negotiate. Exercise has never been so easy!

Chris' Fruit and Veg shop has been here long before the busses turned into Fairburn Drive, It really is a family affair and Jen, Chris' mum still helps out throughout the week. As well as all the other fabulous staff that have been with Chris for nearly as long as the shop as been open. Phyllis, Jo and Lynne
We are so lucky to have such a wonderful, long standing Greengrocers right here in the middle of our housing estate, still open and doing so, 7 days a week; Sundays from 9.30am- 1.30pm so there's never any excuse not to buy our local fruit and veg for every meal.
Chris' prices are extremely competitive and a lot of his veg is sourced within a 50 mile radius. Chris also uses local when it comes to other offerings such as, Dumouchel bread on a Saturday and Free range eggs from Darley's Farm in Aberford.
Chris also delivers in and around Garforth to many local businesses including our care homes and schools; I bet you see his van all the time, day and night!
As some of you may know, TMD helped with getting LCC to paint better parking spaces outside this row of shops in order to keep people safe, park better and allow more customers to park. However, they are still working on shop owners to keep this free for customers only as it is important that all our shops have a future; there's not many parades of 5 shops that are still surviving in a small residential estate; we really are very lucky.
Just in case you don't know; Chris' sells
Fruit, Veg, Flowers for all occasions, bedding plants, pot plants, hanging baskets, dairy such as yogurt, cheese, milk and free range eggs, salad, some groceries. Dumouchel Bread on a Saturday, Preservatives; jams and sauces. Chris also sells seasonal goods such as Pumpkins at Halloween, Christmas trees and ornaments along with wreaths and Pet and bird food too as well as hay for our littler pets.
We really need to keep shopping, keep following and keep him busy; he likes it that way
Follow his Facebook page, you can see edible goodness in all his photos

Remember it's not just about liking things on his Facebook page, as many do, it's also important to keep shopping.

Kate and the team have been running Freshly Made for a few years now and have a great reputation for the yummiest of breakfasts, sandwiches, pies and cakes.
But,they do more than you think at Freshly Made , it's not just about breakfast
Each Monday during term time, Freshly Made provide the NET group based at Halliday Court with a home-cooked hot meal made up of a main course and a dessert. Halliday Court is one of 14 lunch clubs within the Garforth and surrounding areas, whose aim is to combat social isolation by providing older people with the opportunity to meet people, make new friends and join in activities.
The super cook who creates the Monday meals is called Keith. Keith has recently retired and was looking for a little role which utilised his culinary skills. So when Freshly Made were approached by Ann and Pat at Halliday Court they had just the person for the job. Keith enjoys the camaraderie of working in a team and the staff learn cooking tips from Keith and love the banter in the kitchen when he is around!
In addition to Monday meals, Freshly Made also provide regular buffets for working lunches to a number of local businesses.
Owner Kate, has a spent the last decade working for charities, supporting disadvantaged young people in to work and training. As a new employer, Kate was keen to offer work placements at Freshly Made.
They have since supported two young people, the first on a six month placement via the Government Talent Match programme, who had language and learning barriers. More recently they provided a work experience placement for a 16 year old with complex learning disabilities. Following the success of the first placement, Freshly Made have been chosen by Talent Match to support more young people in the coming few months.
Talent Match is targeting young people who are furthest from the jobs market, including those who are completely outside of the benefits, work and training system and facing severe barriers to gaining the skills they need to get into work.
So next time you pop in Monday to Sunday in the cafe, just think you buying from the cafe allows Kate and the team to do all these wonderful things in our community
