Everything you need to know, right here, on one page.
If you are considering taking part in physical activity or an exercise class, before you start answer the following questions below. The questionnaire will indicate whether you should check with your doctor before you start an exercise programme of physical activity. If you are over 69 years of age and you are not used to being very active you should check with your doctor.
1. Have you ever been diagnosed with a heart condition by a doctor and advised you should only do physical activity advised by them?
2. Have you ever felt pain in your chest during physical activity?
3. Have you ever felt pain in your chest whilst you were at rest?
4. Do you ever feel faint, have dizziness or lose consciousness?
5. Do you have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse by exercise?
6. Have you ever been diagnosed with high blood pressure?
7. Are you currently taking any medication which may affect you exercising?
8. Are you currently pregnant or have you had a baby in the last six months?
9. Is there any other reason why you should not participate in physical activity?
If you have answered yes to one or more questions:
Talk with your doctor by phone or in person before increasing your physical activity. Tell your doctor about the question(s) you have answered yes to. You may still be able to do any activity you want as long as you begin slowly and build up gradually – or you may need to limit your activities to those which are safe for you. Talk with your doctor about the kind of activities you wish to participate in and follow his/her advice.
If you have answered no to all questions:
You can be reasonably confident that you can start to increase your physical activity and take part in a progressive exercise programme – begin slowly and build up gradually.
If your health changes so that you answer yes to any of the above questions, inform your instructor immediately. Delay becoming more active if you feel unwell because of a temporary illness such as a cold or flu – wait until you feel better.
Group exercise classes are hosted on Zoom, which allows the instructor (Mads) to watch and interact with all participants to ensure you are exercising correctly, safely and are having fun.
The FIT@Home timetable has been designed to suit a variety of mind and body needs. Classes are suitable for beginners and regular exercisers as modifications for exercises are always given.
Whether you chose to workout as part of a group class or 121, exercise should suit YOU, there is no pressure to keep up with anyone else. You are encouraged to share your goals with your instructor who will happily keep you accountable on your “FIT journey.”
An overview of the weekly timetable and pricing options are at the bottom of this page.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
It is the responsibility of the participant to ensure:
- There is sufficient space to perform the exercises safely and move freely without obstacles or obstructions, free from furniture, equipment and other hazards – a minimum of four square metres per person
- Any equipment is safe and in a suitable condition for the activity being performed
- The surrounding floor space is entirely clear to remove any hazards that may increase the risk of slips, trips or falls
- There are no distractions throughout the duration of the session
- There is sufficient heating, lighting, ventilation and hydration.

Fitness Inspired Training (and instructors) will not be responsible. If you have any injuries or health conditions that may affect you during exercise please speak with the instructor ahead of any session you join.
