Worried about coming on your own?
As a member of my classes you will have the opportunity to get fitter, lose weight if you want to and make new friends along the way who will help and support you. Many members who join find new friends and get together for social and outings outside class too. Remaining as a member of class once you’ve reached your goal weight is the best way to guarantee maintaining the success you’ve achieved.
Not exercised before?
Don’t worry, we have lots of members who have either never exercised before, are returning to exercise after a break, or who think their co-ordination isn’t good enough to join a class. Our classes are designed to get you exercising at the right level for you and we can adapt the moves and offer alternatives that are right for you. You’ll be encouraged to build up your exercise and fitness levels gradually so that you work at a level that’s suitable for you. Although it’s an exercise session it’s designed to be fun: no one gets everything right all the time – not even me!
Am I too young/too old to join?
No, definitely not! My members range in age from their early twenties right through to their mid eighties. It’s never too late to take up exercising and, if my members are anything to go by, it’s certainly not true that you can’t lose weight as you get older – it might just take you a little longer!
Will everyone know what I weigh?
No, our classes are designed to be fun, friendly and welcoming with a great atmosphere. No one is made to feel embarrassed – you’re among people with a similar goal who understand how difficult it can be and are only too willing to offer help and advice if you need it. However, your weigh-in is done discreetly with me, so apart from you and I no one else need ever know how much you weigh.
We believe in helping local and national causes too and in the past have raised money for St Gemma’s Hospice, Cancer Research UK, Diabetes UK, Steps (a charity based in Leicester), NSPCC, Dyslexia Action and Wheatfields Hospice. Last year we joined forces with some of the other Clubs in the area to raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance by holding a “Kardy Party” with the fabulous Kardy Laguda and have raised over £4,000 for this great charity.
