YES, we are BACK on the 10th of July for our first class! Firstly, we hope you and all your family have been safe and well through these difficult times. It's been nearly 16 weeks since we have closed our Gym; Prokick. We’ve missed you all, along with the buzz at the gym. We have been keeping busy with our free private on-line classes, and now our outdoor classes at Stormont. But it is great news that we now have a date to reopen ProKick!
