Hi I’m Blaise of 3Bs Health and Fitness

I deliver specialist exercise classes to older adults in the Kirkby Lonsdale and Kendal areas of Cumbria, and Zoom classes nationally.

I have been an instructor for over 16 years teaching specialist exercise classes to older adults to help them remain physically active and independent into their later life.  I have recently moved from Nottinghamshire to Cumbria and will be delivering new face to face classes locally, whilst continuing with my established Zoom classes.

Previously I worked with Newark & Sherwood District Council delivering Stroke rehab classes; Nottinghamshire County Council delivering Falls Prevention, Strength and Balance classes;  Age UK in Lincolnshire, delivering Age UK’s National ‘Fit as a Fiddle’ project; and before that I worked for the Metropolitan Police for over 21 years.

Having been diagnosed with Lupus SLE  in my 30s (now in full remission), I understand the difficulties in trying to remain physically active whilst coping with a debilitating illness. I found it really hard to find an exercise programme that suited my needs. Whilst working at Age UK, I qualified as a fitness instructor teaching older adults and people with disabilities, and ‘hey presto’ discovered there are exercises out there that work for people like me.

Since then, I have been passionate about promoting the right type of exercises for people who are unable to participate in high energy exercise classes.

I ensure that I’m qualified to work with older adults and I keep up to date with my training (CPDs) so that I can continue to deliver safe, appropriate and effective exercise to my clients.

My classes are not just about exercise though…..3Bs classes are friendly, supportive, social groups and all classes include the essential cuppa after class, even Zoom Classes!

At 3Bs Health and Fitness, we don’t believe in the mantra ‘no pain, no gain’… we prefer ‘no ache, no cake’ !

Please contact me if you want any more information, or if you just want an informal chat about your needs…..you won’t look back!

 Blaise
