I had never exercised in my life before. I was a size 22 and 15 1/2 stone. I started having back pain with the birth of my first child in 2006, by the time my youngest had come along the back pain was unbearable. After an MRI scan the doctor told me the only thing I could do to relieve the pain was to strengthen my core. I’d gone to the gym a couple of times but my heart wasn’t in it and trying to find someone to look after the baby whilst I went was not easy. Then a friend of mine suggested Alice’s mums and buggies classes. I’ve never looked back and have been a regular every week since. Her classes are fun and she will never push anyone past their natural limit. All abilities are able to workout in Alice’s classes. I’ve made a load of friends and look forward to going to the classes every week. My daughter who is now 5 has learnt all the exercises too which can only be a good thing for her! I’m now a size 10 and fitter and happier than I’ve ever been, thanks to Alice’s classes.
