"I loved my first session and am definitely keen to complete the term. I felt the group dynamic was very comfortable and safe, which really adds to the exercise component. Previous experiences in water aerobics classes at other leisure centres have been quite stressful; not being able to keep up with the class and the instructor was exasperated, then I felt ignored and like a burden to the class, therefore I never returned. This class was the opposite. Jeff had very clear instructions, very respectful, and made me feel much more relaxed and supported".
