What goes into planning young kids classes? 
The planning of kids classes   When people see my board for younger kids classes, they see a bunch of drawings, some magnets, a few lines and a date at the top. They then spend at least 10 minutes deciphering it! However more thought goes into it than just selecting which animals I’m going to
Why is strength training important for children?
Why is strength training important for children? We often hear of the 10 elements of fitness: Cardiovascular endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, agility, coordination, balance and accuracy.

THE 4 R’S FOR GETTING BACK TO FITNESS POST NATAL When will this squishy jelly belly be gone? Will I ever get my pre baby body back? When will I be able to squeeze back into my favourite skinny jeans? Do these questions sound familiar to you? So many clients come to me desperate to
