We have a closed Facebook group for Fit 2 Care members to information share and to communicate with each other. We like to offer each other support and make new friends wherever we can. We are a friendly bunch and all the classes are really fun and supportive. We often go for a coffee after the classes if people have time although there is no obligation to do this.
We believe that helping carers stay strong and healthy helps us cope with our caring role, improves self-esteem, improves self-confidence, can alleviate aches and niggles in the body and generally lifts our mood.
What our members say:
Today, I transferred/lifted my child’s supplies into the garage! Usually I get into a right state and leave half of it for the hubby to do but today I managed it all on my own. I feel I had more awareness of my posture to lift the items and move them carefully and I don’t feel exhausted either!
I'd never been to a gym and found the whole idea quite scary. When the fit to care classes came to my attention, I felt it was something that I could really benefit from plus I would be attending with other parents/carers - so this gave me the confidence to give it a try. Priority 6, the training coaches and Karen have all made it an excellent experience from the very first session! I felt very welcome, I've enjoyed every session and most importantly I've seen progress in my fitness levels each week. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these classes to others.
When I saw the advert about 'fit to care' it was at the right time for me to take the leap. I had no idea what I was going to walk into just that I was ready to make a change, get fitter and stronger. I'm so happy I contacted Karen as my time at Priority 6 has been fantastic... I'm getting fitter, stronger and I've lost over 2 inches off of my waist, I'm down a dress size. This is what I do on a Monday now and I'm looking forward to the next session. I've also got myself a kettle bell.... Must be going a little mad ?
