Such a fun class, the instructor is a bundle of energy who inspires us all to work harder. She has excellent people skills and everyone enjoys her classes!
One of my favourite classes! The instructor keeps you moving, motivated and laughing throughout the whole time – one of the best ways I’ve found to keep fit – a great way to let off some steam!
Circuits has such a great atmosphere, everyone really gets stuck in whatever their level of fitness. It’s a great all over workout and the instructor keeps you going right up until the cooldown at the end
I was a little apprehensive as I didn’t know what to expect. However I was put at ease and the teacher guided me through the exercises with lots of care and attention. She took the time to answer all my questions so I left feeling really confident and excited about my next session
I was always sceptical about yoga thinking that I wouldn’t be bendy enough but after my first class I realised there was so much more to it! I’m encouraged to explore postures and whilst the classes can be intense the work goes deep and stays with me long after I’ve gone home
I have such a laugh at Zumba – sometimes my body just won’t do what I want it to – but its all okay I just shake and shimmy my way through until I stop laughing and get back into the beats again!

What's Stopping you Changing Your DietI strongly believe that food and nutrition is NOT just about science. Yes, an understanding of the underlying principles such as caloric intake and food composition is all very important but if you can’t apply this information in the real world then it is useless. Even with the perfect, textbook nutrition plan and most advanced training programme, obstacles, sticking points and difficulti...

It's All About The Carbs!We’ve all been there.
