WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I do a lot of weight training so wasn't expecting it to feel as intense as it did. I loved it though as it showed me how you can get an amazing workout just using body weight.
I enjoyed how much it required me to be mindful and conscious of my body. There is a lot to think about and because of that I found I was having to engage everything which meant I really felt the burn.
I was very pleased with the class, the pace was ideal, not too fast or slow, it was structured well and a full body workout!
Correcting my posture was great, I really noticed the difference in the workout because I was told about which way your hips should be etc.
100% recommend, far better than classes I’ve been to at the gym!
It was more energetic than I thought it would be, and I worked harder than I thought I would.
The music was great, the exercises were fun as I learned about some simple ballet moves.
Maria was very welcoming and friendly and it didn’t matter if I went a bit wrong!! She checked our form which a lot of teachers don’t seem to do. She was attentive and fun and explained everything well!
Maria was really informative and engaging and made it really relaxed and fun whilst making sure our form was good and we were safe.
Her kind nature, energy and warmth just made it a lovely environment which is great when you're trying something new.
