"Do what feels right for you..."

"We leave Cindy Sullivan’s exercise class with our muscles feeling relaxed and renewed. Her stretching, strengthening and cardio exercises are aimed specifically at older citizens; all within our ability to execute. Cindy adds suggestions for deepening each exercise with the firm caveat “If it hurts don’t do it. This is your class, do what feels right for you and provides the benefit you want”. Her instructions are clear, the music gives us added bounce, and Cindy does the exercises with us, always with supportive and positive encouragement. Because it makes us feel so good and we know this is as important a part of healthy ageing as stretching our minds or venturing out of our comfort zone to learn new things, we tell our friends about it and encourage them to come exercise with us.

And they do!"
