Zoom classes or in person?

Zoom classes get you out of bed in the morning.  They are amazing because it doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you log on 1 minute before the class and you are finished 40 minutes later, no driving, no waiting in traffic or finding somewhere to park.


I have clients from Devon to Scotland, Southampton to New Zealand.  And, if you can’t make the occasional live Zoom class, you also have the recording sent to you each day.  No fuss, no excuse, just efficient exercise.


The Zoom classes are suitable for beginners and intermediates, sessions are 30 - 40 minutes.


Face to face classes: 

Ashburton town Hall, Devon, Monday 10.30-11.15am.

Ogwell Village Hall Tuesdays at 4-4.45pm

Reasons for starting a class?  Feeling of being fat. Need to be more mobile.    Need to be part of a group.   Need to meet new friends.  Need to feel fulfilled and contented with self when leaving the class    Thinking of health benefits.    Heart.  Bones.    Ect.    Found the class on fb.    The times suited me.        After joining enjoyed the lovely fun way. With the music.      Easy going no stress keep fit.   A lovely trainer great sense humour a happy smiling face    Recommend it to anyone.   Thankyou Fiona.

This is what people are saying:

'I do the classes before settling down to a day 'at the office'. I see the girls off to school, tidy the kitchen, do my 9am class and arrive at my desk at 9.40 ready to fly through my morning to do list.  It's the best way to switch over from home life to work life.'

Paracise &Circuit classes

Paracise and Circuit classes are a fantastic form of exercise that focus on improving your tummy muscles, increasing your leg strength and all over body flexibility as well as your mental health and wellbeing. Paracise and circuit classes are based on rehabilitation exercises used by health professionals. People from all walks of life, whether you are working or retired will find great benefits with regular classes and they will complement your walking, swimming or other exercise. 

Whether you are coming to Paracise or Circuits as a complete beginner or a more experienced exerciser, you are making a commitment to yourself and your physical and mental health. 


Popular Classes


Falls Prevention, Otago and Wobble Classes are aimed at people who have had or nearly had a fall. A trip over a carpet or curbstone? In Otago we follow a prescribed programme of exercise to help balance, increase strength in our legs, arms and shoulders and back as well as improve confidence and your ability to walk strongly and with confidence.


Otago is the first falls exercise programme based on research and designed by physiotherapists. Here are some of the learnings:

1. Falls among people participating in the Otago exercises were reduced by 30% to 66% when compared to controls who were not doing Otago exercises.

2. After one year, injuries due to falls were reduced by 28% in participants performing Otago exercises.

3. The Otago exercise program was most effective at reducing falls for people over the age of 80 years, but people who were younger still found some benefit.

4. 70% of patients performing Otago exercises continued doing the program after one year.
