Christmas Voucher 2017

This time of the year I am frequently approached by people with regard to buying training sessions as a Christmas Present via a voucher for friends, family, colleagues etc. I am always delighted to cater a training package as a Christmas Present to each person’s individual needs and requirements.

Therefore, if you would like to buy some training sessions for someone else (or yourself!!) then please do not hesitate to get in touch. A Christmas Gift Voucher is a great way to help and encourage others to get more active, healthier and fitter.
