Course testimonials:

  • said: This course has exceeded our expectations in every way. Our tutor David is very competent and personable, the other participants are really friendly and we have improved our strength and fitness in just a few months.

  • said: A valuable fitness course for seniors. Such a pity that my health prevented me from attending most of the classes.

  • said: Everything! My fitness has improved no end. We laugh; we groan; we go and have coffee afterwards. It’s a great class and I wouldn’t miss it unless I really have to, unlike other classes where I have tried to find excuses not to go!

  • said: 5 stars

  • said: This exercise class is a must for those who think that exercise couldn't be this helpful to living well or a fun activity (even when the music is occasionally bad)
