Vicki Arief has been running our classes since they commenced. Vicki is a Fully Qualified Trainer and has worked closely with CRS, Belgrave Physiotherapy, Ranges Physiotherapy, Inspiro, and was also involved in the development of Master Classes designed for Men suffering from Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease, and Depression.
Many of our participants, nowadays are referred from Ranges Physiotherapy, and Cardio Pulmonary Rehab Centres for ongoing exercise and motivation, and from local Retirement Homes.

We also have ladies attending that have survived Breast Cancer,  and they absolutely love the non-intimidating, friendly atmosphere to come and exercise in. We have now added Line Dancing and Broadway Routine Moves to the agenda, using walking sticks for eye-hand co-ordination as well. Extremely popular with everyone who attends. Lots of laughs and fun to great motivating music.
