Safety Considerations

  • For face to face sessions please arrive a few minutes early for your first class to complete a written health questionnaire before you start and again annually to update your details. Some conditions, illnesses, and injuries may require you to visit your GP, Physiotherapist or another health professional prior to starting or continuing with exercise.

  • For online classes please complete my online Pre-Activity Readiness Questionnaire PAR-Q form by clicking hereclicking on the link will take you to the online form which will be immediately emailed to me when you submit it. Alternatively you may download the health questionnaire in Word by clicking on the link at the end of the page  to complete in advance and bring with you to class, or photograph/scan and email back to me in advance.

  • There is a separate health questionnaire link at the end of the page for children under the age of 16, this must be completed and then signed by a parent/guardian who must accompany the child to all classes unless otherwise specified.

  • Please inform me of any recent illnesses, medical conditions, bone or joint problems, or if you are pregnant prior to the class starting each week.

  • Please arrive on time for the class so that you can complete a suitable warm-up for your own safety.

  • To avoid disruption, where possible please switch off or turn to silent, all mobile phones before the start of the class.

What to Wear and Bring

Dance Fitness and Lift Lean

  • Comfortable exercise clothing should be worn, such as tracksuit bottoms, leggings, shorts and a T-shirt.

  • Ladies, don't forget the importance of a sports bra!

  • Please wear suitable exercise shoes, trainers, or dance sneakers.

  • Bring a bottle of water and a towel to lie on or to mop up the sweat!

  • For your own hygiene and comfort please bring your own non-slip exercise mat or  if you prefer ask me if I have any available to buy. 

Pilates, Trigger Point Pilates and Dynamic Pilates

  • Comfortable clothing should be worn, such as tracksuit bottoms or leggings and a T-shirt. It is not essential, but easier for me to check your posture and exercise alignment when your clothing is more fitted.

  • You need to remove your shoes and in Pilates, it is best to wear socks for comfort, warmth and to enable you to slide your foot along the mat in certain exercises, if you prefer to exercise with bare feet this is fine and favoured by many, particularly for more advanced Pilates exercises.

  • For your own hygiene and comfort please bring your own soft, non-slip Pilates mat or ask me if I have any available to buy if you prefer. Please bring a small towel to lie on or to roll up and use as a neck support for your own comfort.
