When I grow up…

… I want to be a P.E/gym teacher!’

Me (aged 14)

‘… I LOVE THIS!!! – one day I will have my own class’

Me (aged 16) during my first aerobics class in a wee church hall, Helensburgh

‘… I LOVE THIS ‘!!!!

Me (aged 39!) at my Tuesday and Thursday Fit-mix class last week!

Feeling like my 16 year old self again!

My Funky Fit-mix classes include the 5 main components of fitness,

Cardio- improving the efficiency of your heart and lungs- fat burning!

Motor fitness- giving you better co-ordination & balance.

Muscular Strength- building strong bones and muscles.  

Muscular Endurance- in other words ‘toning’ or ‘body shaping.’

Flexibility- maintaining and improving your flexibility.

Stops you from seizing/stiffening up & helps prevent injury.

Mix all these components together with a dash of humour,

a spot of fun,

a few cheesy tunes

and some fantastic like-minded ladies..

Put in a room for 60 minutes with a pinch of motivation ( from me) and

… Voila!

…. An enjoyable exercise class that is guaranteed to improve your health and well being!

What’s not to love ?

I’m really proud of Funky Fit-mix because it provides exercise options for every age & fitness level ( including zero fitness!)

my 13 years experience of teaching fitness has allowed me to tweak this class format to one that is designed especially for women targeting the parts us ladies want to reduce, improve and stop wobbling!

Try it – I’d love to welcome you!
