This is what people are saying...
Well done Fiona. You have kept us alive through lockdown. Even if we have not managed online classes the best thing you have done is keeping in touch with us all and that has been very special. As for the outdoor classes. Wow that has been very special. Carry on with your fantastic work and we think you are cool (as our younger generation say.)

Paracise is a low impact, gentle but effective functional exercise class to fabulous music. Paracise offers an entry point to people who would benefit physically and mentally from lower intensity exercise. It is ideal for those who find regular fitness classes too demanding, or who haven't exercised for a while, or are coming back from injury.
Paracise is medication in motion.
Circuits - the fun version
Circuit training is great for everyone no matter your age or ability. It consist of a selection of exercises to help you build strength, flexibility, aerobic capacity and maintain bone density. Resistance training complements any walking, cycling or swimming. The Chief Medical Officer for England recommends at least 2 sessions of resistance (strength) training every week and Circuits is the perfect way to do this. We do an extended warm up and cool down making it suitable for any Cardiac and Cancer rehab patients as well as those with other health issues. We then do 45 seconds of each exercise. You take it at your own pace. No pressure, just positive outcomes and increased happy hormones.

Plus it's sociable, fun and will boost your happy hormones.
