Finally going to spend some time in Istanbul - in October this year.
2 years ago (my how time flies) I posted a message on here and got a reply from Elcin. She mentioned the shore club in Istanbul as a place to go for my regular LM fix, have looked at their website but do not see BP on there anymore and wondering if it it still possible to follow LM classes in Turkey. Have also tried PMing Elcin but no reply, so I do not know if she is still hanging out here every now and then. I would really miss not going to class for a month (OMG) Oh and ehm. Cherry on the cake would be to maybe teach a class in "Tenglish" as I am spending a month studying the Turkish language there, that is the purpose of the trip. Any and all advice is more than welcome!
Maybe also contact the user emrealpkiakaha, he's a friend of Elcin and he's in my buddy list. He may help you as to find BP classes in Istanbul.
Thanks Tiger I'll do that!
Am really looking forward to staying there and being able to go to my BP classes would really be the cherry on the proverbial cake...
Are you going to meet Emre??!?! He used to tell me on here that he was the pumping monster and that bodypumping drove him crazy and had outer-body experiences! I would seriously love an autographed photo of you and Emre. He is like ... #3 in my heart.
Say Hi to Emre from me.
I guess, while I'm typing these words, he's doing BodyPump in this club on the shores.. ^^
Sara_G:Hmm. The thing is, in order to send him a message I need to be friends with him on the LM site, and though I've sent him an invitation I am not sure if he is hanging around here that often - can someone help out with this? (Francois or someone else, would you be able to reach him through e-mail maybe?)
Sara, I don't have his email but maybe he gets your friend request and will connect to this website..
I would call directly to ask the reception of the center if they still have BodyPump
There is a number in the contact link of their website.
I have been living in istanbul for 5 years and i didnt know there were any clubs with body pump classes,. If you do fine a centre, can you please post the information here. I knew of a place in akatlar but when i contacted them, it was a pump like class, but not les mills..
