LG Fitness is a North East based female fitness company that offers boot camp style classes, helping women of all ages and abilities unlock their potential. 

We were founded by Lois Gair, who is a Level 2 Fitness Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer.  Lois is extremely passionate about helping people reach their personal fitness goals and general wellbeing

Our team of instructors offers a range of classes from boxing to Pilates, with a programme that changes on a monthly basis to ensure your body is constantly challenged, and that you achieve maximum results. All classes are suitable for all ages, abilities and fitness levels; you work at your own pace, with our team being there to push and encourage you.

Lois’ goal has always been to accommodate all females, no matter their age, background or fitness abilities. We are proud to offer a range of sessions in the Dunston community. In addition Lois, Emily, Kelly and Kasia can offer personal training and small group training for those wanting to focus their efforts in specific areas.

Did you know we have a kids room?

KIDS ROOM

LG Fitness understands that getting the opportunity to train can be difficult when you are juggling work and family life.

Lois has always felt passionately that all women should be supported in their wish to train because she knows how beneficial exercise can be for your confidence, health and mental well being.

LG Fitness are delighted to share with you their brand new ‘kids room’ where the little ones can play whilst you get to exercise.

Come along and try it, as you can see – these kids are right at home!

Women's Refuge Christmas collection

Community and charity work

Lois and the team supports a number of local and national charities, and is keen to raise money.

Raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust 

On Friday 19th October 2018, Lois handed over the donations made by herself and the LG Fitness team to a local women’s refuge.

Three weeks prior to this, Lois called upon Northumbria Police for information on local women’s refuges, Lois had an initial idea of making Christmas boxes with the LG girls to donate this year. Lois visited a refuge in particular one Friday morning and was absolutely stunned at how little this refuge had been donated over the years and how little money they had to spend. There was more to be done than sending a Christmas gift.  

Over the course of three weeks Lois allocated each LG member a brand new item to buy, this consisted of Ladies PJs, underwear, socks, sanitary products, hygiene essentials, children’s PJs, nappies, baby wipes, baby milk… the list goes on and it’s fair to say that every single item was covered.

 

Over 100 brand new items had been purchased and a lot of used clothing and shoes were also donated. Brand new toys were donated so that each child had something of their own.

All items were collected, checked, labelled and boxed up in Lois’ house until the drop off day.


When Lois had arrived, they were told by a member off staff that they had just had two new admissions within five minutes of each other that day. They had arrived with nothing, but were very excited to go through our donations and put a starter pack together for them.

LG Fitness ladies

Working with our local comprehensive school

Every Monday and Thursday from September 2023 

 LG Fitness will be working in Kingsmeadow school to deliver strength and fitness classes to year groups 9 & 10 girls in after school clubs. 

As part of the funding for RISE the school are looking to increase participation for girls in sport.

This after school club is FREE, Lois and Emily Halliday are the instructors, with over 10 years experience in the industry from myself, and Emily as a former P:E teacher in a  comprehensive school for 16 years before she joined LG as an instructor 3 years ago. 

LG fitness stands by its brand and wants everyone to feel empowered and strong, seeing exercise as a way to develop good habits and improve their quality of life in the future. 
As fitness experts, what we say and post is extremely important, but more importantly needs to be truthful and educational. 

In a 2023 study, researchers found that nearly two-thirds of the 100 most popular fitness influencer accounts promoted unhealthy or unrealistic body shapes. These unrealistic standards of perfection and sometimes heavily edited and filtered images – can lead to feelings of inadequacy and a negative body image.

Teenagers are extremely effected by such posts, so we strongly believe that by educating and developing positive body image, will reduce negative and anxious personality traits. 
We also want to encourage the students knowledge and understanding about what their bodies are capable of and for them to embrace their bodies, regardless of shape or size.

If anyone has any questions or would like further information on the services we provide please do not hesitate to give me a ring or drop me a message on 07890 104690.
