Research shows that physical activity can boost your self esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy. It’s essential if you want to live a healthy and fulfilling life and reduce the risk of certain diseases ie heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, dementia etc.
Improve YOUR mood, energy, strength and fitness levels by joining our classes and workouts – click on the Classes Page for venues, dates and class times.

All level classes are for men and women and we’ve had more positive, great feedback from all classes last week – great job everyone, well done. Commit to working out with us to achieve your health + fitness goals


We’re backSomething to think about
The goal is to get fit, make it the best hour of your day, enjoy the music, high 5 some people, blow off some steam – remember that. Relax, have fun, work out.

You don’t have to be great to start – you just have to start to be great.

Goals are dreams with deadlines. What are your fitness and lifestyle goals?

A new day always offers you the opportunity to exercise, eat well, turn negative thoughts round to positive, productive ones and be happy.

Recipes (funny how a lot of the recipes that I pin/share have chocolate in the… hmm)
Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Mousse (serves 4)
2 avocados (Use one avocado for more silky mousse and 2 for thicker more fudge mousse.),
6-8 dates, soaked and pitted, 1 cup raw cacao powder,
1/3 cup grade B maple syrup, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, dash of cinnamon
dash of Himalayan sea salt, *optional – red pepper flakes

1. Combine ingredients in a high powered blender or food processor and blend until silky smooth texture. You may need to scrape down the sides a few times. 2. Serve room temperature or chilled and top with sea salt and/or red pepper flakes. 3. Enjoy!

Super Energizing Chocolate and Peanut Banana Smoothie
(serves 1) By Pauline Hanuise/
1 small banana
1 handful raw peanuts or 1 tablespoon peanut butter), 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder,
1 heaped teaspoon maca powder, 1 handful cacao beans or nibs, 1 cup almond milk,
1/4 cup coconut milk, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder, 1 pinch unrefined sea salt,
1 pinch cinnamon (optional as an extra, I also added ¼ tsp E3 Live powder that I ordered from Aggressive Health – it has more than 65 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and EFAs)

1. Keep a few cacao nibs and peanuts on the side for topping and blend all ingredients in your high-speed blender. 2. Serve in a nice glass and sprinkle spare cacao nibs and peanuts on top.
