Pelvic Floor Seminar with Cherry Baker – international presenter

Dear lovely Do Fitness class members,

Great to see everyone again in class!

Pelvic Floor Seminar 9th February 7.00-10.00pm Wellington Park.
Everybody has a pelvic floor, don’t let yours become a problem. International presenter Cherry Baker sets out to tackle these under-reported often taboo subjects with evidence, information and a dose of humour. Pelvic floor issues can affect men, women, fighter pilots, older adults, weight lifters, the obese, athletes, new mums, those who squat and those who do not. Cherry is very funny too and a little risqué! There will be a bar open  for us to make into a social event.
Tickets now available in class £25 for class members and their friends and family. 
Diabetes ( Type 2) News
There is now so much evidence that Diabetes Type 2 can be reversed when people become more active and of course change their diets (reduce sugar to an a absolute minimum).  It was the headlines in some of the national papers this week.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2017/03/15/type-2-diabetes-can-reversed-just-four-months-trial-shows/

November News

There is such  a great atmosphere in classes at the moment. Thank you for making my job such a joy. Zumba is just brilliant at the moment 9.30am Wednesdays and Fridays. Last year I was really not sure if I would be able to teach Zumba anymore during the dark days of the MS relapse and then the horror of losing my beloved son. Coming back to Zumba feels like a massive victory. Thanks for being there and standing by me in all the classes and  for your love and support. Thank you
