  • Testimonials

    “Beth Yarzab is the fitness instructor at a moms group I have attended for 9 months. Beth's fitness class is a big part of the motivation that keeps me involved in the group. I have twin baby boys, and make sure that I am up and ready early to ensure I make Beth's aerobics class on time. As a mom, this has been a great motivation to get up and ready early in the day.

    Beth has lots of positive energy that is transferred onto the class participants. During and at the end of the class I feel energised and positive about myself, and this is passed onto my own personal feeling of well-being.

    The classes are suited to all ability levels; Beth makes everyone feel at ease and works the different people to their different abilities. The classes are varied, ensuring that we never get bored. Beth is very approachable and has gone out of her way to give me personal exercises for my own individual needs. These are exercises that I can easily do at home and fit into my daily routine. It is also great to work out with an instructor who is also a mom, and understands other moms' needs and challenges when it comes to keeping up an exercise routine.
    At the end of each class I feel pumped and look forward to the following week.
    Thanks Beth for always being so upbeat and giving such fantastic classes.
