Client feedback...

"There was obvious improvement in strength, balance and confidence around the knees after a few weeks of exercises. This provided the kick start I required to participate in further exercise in my own time."

"The course was excellent, it was holistic, theory as well as practice covered. It was well paced, pitched at the right level, and enjoyable – effective without being over strenuous."

"The sessions provided a gentle variety of exercises, there was support and guidance on good technique and the instructors were informative and helpful."
