Fit Steps Friends

26 April 2017

Six clients are now firm friends after meeting each other at the Up and Active Fit Steps Class, which  is dancing to music and a great way to exercise, is thoroughly enjoyable and most of all FUN!  

Elaine and sister’s Louise and Marilyn heard  about the class at Burnley Mechanics on Thursday mornings by word of mouth and attending the various other sessions provided through the Up and Active programme.  Having enjoyed the class so much they continue to attend Mark’s session since successfully completing their 12 week back to exercise programme. 

Marjorie who began with Up and Active just 6 months ago commented, “I have made good friends and I now enjoy other activities as well as the Fit Steps Class since meeting everyone”.  Linda and Eleanor have both said they are fitter and are now both members of St Peters Leisure Centre, having taken up the special reduced rate offer that clients can enjoy after completing the programme.  In addition to Fit Steps they now attend Easy Exercise, Gym and Aqua too. 

Louise explained the whole group tend to stay behind for a coffee after the session on a Thursday and the ladies agree the social aspect is great for 50 – 70 year olds.  The five ladies who say the whole group is really friendly and has a great atmosphere have taken their friendship to another level and now really enjoy meeting each other outside of Up and Active, which has opened up a whole new social life for them as they arrange to go to the cinema, shows and have even been on holiday to Llandudno for a week together too! 

Eleanor began attending Up & Active after suffering a bereavement and Linda and Louise have arthritis and suffer pain from their condition, they say they would recommend Up and Active to everyone.  It has been a great way to alleviate medical conditions and make new friends.
