  • Core strengthening – 10am for 40mins
  • Low impact aerobics – 10am for 40mins

Man exercising

Hi, I’m Joe! I have a BSc and MSc in physical activity, exercise and health. I also have L4 qualifications in cardiac and cancer exercise rehabilitation alongside other qualifications including L3 exercise GP referral.

I cover Lewis’ classes when he is away exercise sessions, including strength, cardiovascular and core exercise. I am a keen runner and former boxer, I sometimes implement boxing training into my sessions alongside lots of other ways of exercising and enjoy seeing people improve their health through being active.

All live exercise sessions are standing unless previously specified and will take place on our closed Facebook group.

Once you are part of the closed Facebook page you will gain access to our pre-recorded exercise videos, exercise workbooks/worksheets, exercise diaries, physical activity guidelines and our live exercise sessions delivered by a trained professional Health Coach.

We also post frequent Q&As centered around nutrition, weight loss and physical activity that are answered by our team and you will get top tips for healthy eating and weight management.

To join the group, please get in touch to sign up. A member of our team will call you back to get you started.
