"I now have to get 2 buses and walk another 15 minutes to get to your class now, but I've tried all the (classes) near me and none of them are as good and as much fun as yours. Can I come back?"
Joan (who had moved house across town from class a few months previously)
" I wish you ran extra classes at the Oasis Centre, I'd come every day if I could!" Sharon, Oasis centre class member
"I can climb the stairs again - it's marvellous!" Diana, class member
"The classes have given me so much more confidence in my ability to get around and do things I thought I couldn't. I've also come to know so many nice people after class when we have tea and biscuits, which is great as I didn't know anyone when I first moved here".
Ellizabeth, fibromyalgia sufferer
"My balance has improved no end since I started Jo's classes. I don't need to use my walker or my stick any more". Jenny, Active Balance class member
"I didn't think it was possible to improve my fitness at my age - but Jo's proved me wrong, I'm glad to say". Katie, 94yrs
"There's always a real buzz following a class with Jo - the members love it and look forward to it as the highlight of their week".
Robert, organiser of Prestbury Sit Fit class
"The hospital physiotherapist referred me to Jo as she's qualified to help older people with health issues and we get individual attention and advice in her classes. I always feel she's got her eye on me so I feel reassured that I'm doing the exercises properly".
Margaret, Active Balance class member
"After I first moved into my bungalow, I was relieved I didn't have to climb stairs every day but then I developed "bungalow legs" and felt nervous about tackling stairs outside. Since I've been coming to Jo's classes, my legs are much stronger again. I almost wish I hadn't moved!" Pam, Active Balance class member
"I'm so glad I found your classes Jo, it's been so helpful to me after my hip operation. I found it difficult to motivate myself to exercise at home and your classes are so much fun, I really enjoy exercising here". Joan, St Aidan's group
"Jo-Anne's seated exercise classes to music have quickly become a popular activity for our clients.
Her friendly and approachable style has ensured that everyone participating in the class enjoys their "Sit Fit" experience. Our clients feel Jo-Anne understands their individual physical limitations and they always comment favourably about the varying content of the sessions. We would recommend Jo-Anne without hesitation".less

"My GP is delighted that I'm coming to this class as it's helping to lower my blood pressure and reduce my medications for it". Arthur, Sit Fit group
"We were referred to Jo for 1-1 sessions as mum was finding it difficult to exercise in a big group; her ability to concentrate has been deteriorating (with having Alzheimer's), her balance was getting worse and I was worried her health would go downhill as a result. Jo is brilliant, finding new ways to engage her with every visit, such as encouraging her to sing along to the exercises - which my mum loves doing - and making up seated dances to music". Heather, Kathleen's daughter
