What Our Clients Have To Say
I really enjoy this weekly chair dance session, i love the group atmosphere, the laughter as well as the exercise and the variety of the music. Laughter is a very good medicine! Being in a wheelchair, i find the exercises are progressive and always varied week to week to keep us working but always at our own pace. Although i get tired from taking part in the exercise it does liven me up for the day

Fantastic song choices, loads of varied routines which are so enjoyable it feels more like enjoying a good dance until I remember I'm bright red and drenched in sweat! Love the classes!!
Karen, Fitness Fusion Gomersal - Active Communties
I started the attending the Gomersal Fitness Fusion class in January 2017 - The class is amazing, it is a fun, upbeat and energetic cardio session and Sophie is an amazing coach - so encouraging. I really enjoy the routines and that feeling of accomplishment after Sophie has done a great workout with us. I also attend this class on a regular basis because of the other ladies that attend, they are great group - we all encourage each other and are all supportive of each other. Most importantly we have a laugh with Sophie whilst getting our workout.
Asma, Fitness Fusion - Active Communities
Sophie has been working with our scheme since January 2018 and the tenants who participate all thoroughly enjoy it!! The group has grown bigger and bigger each week, i have noticed that some residents especially the men who never normally join in any activities + initially said “it wasn’t for me” have been hooked. All the tenants think it is positive to do the chair dance exercises and are pleased that the sessions have been extended due to popular demand.
One tenant stated that from taking part in the chair dance exercise session she has felt a slight improvement in her back pain, it now doesn’t ache as much when she goes on her daily walks to Cleckheaton Town. Another tenant said he continues with the some of the moves + exercises that Sophie has shown the class in his own time to ensure that he is keeping up with regular physical activity.

I enjoy the Chair Dance because it helps with my coordination. After the session with Sophie i feel younger, this is down to the music choices and the dance moves that we do!
Cath, KNH Syke Fold Grange - Over 50s Health Initiative
Great classes, great workout and most importantly always fun...oh and great music tracks too!!
Natasha - Fitness Fusion Gomersal - Active Communities
I have been diagnosed with Parkinsons and Schizophrenia so i was interested in the sessions as it was something different to what i was doing at the hospital - i wanted to do something new. I like the music that Sophie plays, it takes me back. I really enjoy coming on a regular as i get some time to myself and i like the exercises, i know that they are good for me. I have been taking part for a while now so i can feel the difference in my muscles. I sometimes do the exercises at home.
Derek, Lovell Park Hub - Mental Health Wellbeing Scheme
Sometimes i have attended the (chair dance) group feeling exhausted but after taking part i leave feeling refreshed, energetic and much better in myself. The chair dance makes me feel less tense and uptight.
Mark, Vale Circles Mental Health Hub - Mental Health Wellbeing Scheme
We have a laugh with Sophie in the Chair Dance sessions, i always feel better after the class. I also enjoy attending because i get to see all my friends. I would like to see Sophie coming more than once a week!!
