Most of us plan to eat healthier and exercise more at the start of the year, but when the mornings are still dark and cold, it's easy to lose motivation. Next thing you know you're a few weeks from those Summer holidays and the panic has set in at the thought of having to hit the beach your swims. We always recommend a year long movement plan. But what if you've left it too late?
Step away from the kaftan! There's still time to get you loving the body you're in, combined with healthy eating (and maybe a little self-tan!), our combination of classes will work you out, tone you up and get you lean!
