10 Years of Fitness By The Fells

Back in 2014 it dawned on me that I was travelling down to either Blackpool or Sheffield to try different classes, and often they weren't very good.

What I should be doing is trying classes in my local area, and promoting all we have on offer.

That was the moment Fitness By The Fells was born.

At the start I planned 6 classes in a day. However this soon dropped down to 5 and then 4.

The first planned day was cancelled due to low numbers and the second day had more instructors than participants (only 2 booked on and 1 was my sister). However, if I didn't go ahead with it I knew that no further events would occur, and I was sure it was a good thing.

As you can see we have enjoyed a great variety of classes with a variety of instructors.

Have you attended one of these fitness days? If so which classes have been your favourite?
