Life Fit Info and Classes

We advise you to check with your GP before embarking on any exercise programme. It is vital that you inform your instructor of any ailment or medical condition you may have before the start of each session (high blood pressure, diabetes, angina, asthma etc).  Should you be dependent on medication, we expect you to carry your medication on your person for your safety. We recommend you wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing, eg shorts or trackpants with a t-shirt, with safe comfortable shoes.
