Not everyone has time to get to the gym – why not bring exercise opportunities directly to you? Certified instructors are available to instruct in-house whether it be as a one-off activity or book a weekly session for a month, we can arrange these sessions to fit your scheduling needs.
Two Feet and a Heartbeat
Have you been injured on the job or in an accident? Dealing with the death of a loved one? Or feeling emotional and physically drained from being run ragged? Two Feet represents our body. Heartbeat is our soul, it’s who we are. Learning about who we are asks us to dig to the core of our being to determine not only what we’re made of but also what we’re able to become.
Being physically fit and healthy of mind and body can bring you to a personal potential you may not have known existed. It allows us to concentrate better, reducing the risk of accidents, makes us happier at work (improving morale and reducing absenteeism) and at home, and it improves our mood and self-worth… in short, it’s the magic pill we’ve all been looking for!
Laugh, cry, cheer. With the tools they’ll need to be healthy, audiences leave empowered, motivated and eager to learn and reach their potential!
