This course is designed for entry level exercisers with little or no exercise experience. It's a ‘from the couch to moving’ approach and designed to start your journey and set you up with the tools and connections to be self-sufficient in exercise.
Are you currently inactive and want to start an exercise plan on your own in private, but not sure what to do?
Are you too shy to attend gyms or group exercise sessions in public? Or perhaps gyms are too expensive or you feel like you want to strengthen your self-confidence and form a base first before you join one?
These are all common feelings - joining this class may be a way to not let these feelings become a barrier to being active and instead empower yourself with key knowledge to get started on your own.
