A WEE COUNTY fitness guru has been gathering a following of fans with her weekly lockdown workouts.

Elspeth Kirkpatrick is a fitness coach with the Sauchie Women and Girls programme (SWAG).

The aim to keep the community active during the lockdown and Elspeth is delivering weekly classes online.

Every Monday at 9.30am, she delivers a session live on the Get Active Sauchie Facebook page.

The workouts are free and open to anyone who would like to take part. It does not require any equipment other than common household items.

So far, participants have used toilet rolls, towels, tins of beans and a mop to do their exercises – and all exercises can be adapted, making it accessible for all levels and abilities.

Class participant Carol said: "We are all different fitness levels but as we are similar in ages with similar goals we help each other and motivate each other under the careful eye of Elspeth.

"During this lockdown the sessions have really come into their own and continued to motivate me and keep me mentally active as well.

"My fitness has definitely improved and I look forward to improving my 5k parkrun times."

For anyone who can't make it on a Monday morning, the classes remain online to complete when and as often as people want.

So far, approximately 500 people have been viewing the videos weekly with around 20 individuals, both male and female, taking part in the Facebook Live sessions and posting a sweaty selfie after.

Class participant June Stewart added: "I've been joining in with the live classes online and although they're excellent I'm still missing the friendly chat from others.

"I hope these classes continue and I hope to see everyone back in Sauchie all safe."

The SWAG project is funded by sportscotland and run by Clackmannanshire Council and Sauchie Community Group.
