Name:- Emily L.
Age band:- 30-50
When did you join:- Beginning of Jan 16
How did you hear about us:- Post on Facebook Selling site
What have you gained from being a part of the MND community:- Fitness, friends and fun while reducing stress
What is your favourite type of class:- All of them! I was a little apprehensive to start as I didn’t know what to expect in my first class, now it is one of the things I love about the classes – you walk in and have no idea what is going to happen for the next hour. Every one of the 20+ classes I’ve been to so far has been different. I do love using the slam balls, kettlebells and pads.
How would you best describe the instructors and the support they give:- Both instructors are welcoming, friendly, encouraging and just the right amount of mad! They make sure you’re doing the moves correctly, give you personalised modifications if needed and push you to get the most out the class.
Is there anything else you would like to add:- The classes are very friendly with a great mix of people of all ages, ability and gender. I’m really glad I took the chance of responding to the ad, something which I wouldn’t normally do, as I now really look forward to my Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday classes.
Would you recommend MND Fitness:- Definitely.
