Wellbeing Workout


I had a wonderful session at the gym yesterday. There was me, the Instructor,  a trainee instructor, an exercise mat, and a fitness ball. 45 minutes of various exercises, with and without the ball, and I felt as though I was really making progress with my leg muscles, balance, and core strength.

The Instructor, Andy, was very attuned to my needs and pushed me just enough to keep the repetitions going without causing pain or discomfort.

All this was free, part of the membership benefits of Nuffield Health and Fitness Club. I'll definitely be fitting a Wellbeing Workout into my weekly schedule, though I recognise that I won't have the Instructor to myself in subsequent weeks.
