​The best thing about personal training, for me, has been the one-to-one support and guidance that I have received with Inspirational Fitness. I think it’s especially useful if you’re a bit shy about your shape or lack of fitness, as you can work to your own level. My training hasn’t

As a runner my legs get very sore and achey, particularly after a race, having a monthly sports massage with Petra has helped to improve the condition of my legs and makes them feel wonderful again. Petra also treats my whole body, which helps to keep me in tip top shape.  Do not hesi
