3B's Class


Friendly, knowledgeable instructor, no judgement, do what you feel comfortable doing,  something for everybody regardless of ability.

This is a friendly 3Bs class and the instructor is very considerate towards her members. Keeping in touch with them, enquiring as to how they feel each week & shows an interest in what they have been doing since the previous class. I’d certainly recommend this class to anyone, no matter what their age or abilities

The exercise class is built to give everyone a chance to take part. No matter how old you are there is always something that you can do either standing or sitting. After a class I feel invigorated and ready for the rest of the day.

It is a relaxed environment and there is no sense of competition.

Give the classes a go, Blaise is an amazing instructor and her enthusiasm shines through.

I can now confidently LUNGE and open tins manually. Improved my balance and walking generally.

Explanation of what part of the body is being used and how eg. Picking up something from the floor or climbing the stairs. A real sense of humour from Blaise.

Increased motivation and fitness prior to the operations helped me get over hip replacements quicker.

I have been suffering with joint issues and feel these exercises have kept me more supple than I otherwise would have been.
