Welcome to Complementary Fitness, I’m Susan, a Fitness Instructor with over 30 years teaching experience and I specialise & love teaching all-level Fitness Pilates, Fitness Yoga, (or a combo of the 2 ie fitness Pilates/Yoga) as well as resistance, strength & toning classes for men & women.  I’m motivated, enthusiastic and committed to helping you achieve your fitness, health & lifestyle goals.  I look forward to working out with outdoors again at Thistle Padel Court which is an outdoor covered space at 10am on Wednesdays & Fridays although current numbers are restricted to 14 + me (15 max) so if you’d like a space, email & I’ll confirm first.  If you can’t get a space in those 2 morning classes outdoors, you can still join us in Wed or Fri recorded classes & all you have to do is email for the recorded links so you can still join us but in your own home.  Our Tuesday & Thursday classes are still recorded (at a time to suit you) so again, please email me for the recorded links. 

I hope that you’ll join us to continue building up core & overall strength, posture, balance, flexibility & co-ordination.  It’s easy, all you have to do is let me know which class you’d like to attend, transfer £5 to my account & I’ll send you joining links & passcode and we can work out together outdoors or at home in the comfort & safety of our own homes. Check out the latest fitness Newsletter (News page) and Classes page for the latest info.

I’m hoping that we’ll soon hear from Scottish Government that outdoor non-contact group exercise numbers will increase from 15 to 20 or 30 again soon & if/when that happens, I’ll let you know through our weekly newsletters.

Classes are £5 each per person/per class payable by bank transfer and I can email you my details.

Complementary Fitness classes are more than ‘just fitness’ – our all-level classes are effective, friendly and fun with lots of options and variations to suit all. I hope that you’ll become one of our ‘regulars’ – some class participants have been with us for almost 30 years!!

Did you know that exercise can improve your posture, build strength, flexibility, confidence and also affect your mindset: regulating your mood and helping you feel positive too? It’s a great stress-buster and can help you clear your mind, feel more focused and happier – especially in these uncertain and stressful times.

We hope you’ll be part of our journey to feeling amazing and having more energy. All classes are for woman (except pregnancy) and they’re for all levels including beginners.
