Due to weight gain following two operations on my spine, which had resulted in some nerve damage, I decided to try Clarice’s class through funding from Bromley Adults Education College.

Clarice took great care to understand what my limitations were and how we could go about building up my core strength without causing any damage to my existing condition. The class was well organised and there were many different people from all walks of life.

The class was friendly and any exercise I could not manage was happily accommodated and an alternative suggested. To be able to take part in such a class where you do not feel intimidated was a pleasant surprise.

Not only is it helping me build my strength up but also meeting new people in a caring and supportive environment has many other benefits both physically and mentally. I do hope funding will be continued for this very useful and supportive scheme.
