“Often people have the perception of going to an exercise class and finding 20 size-eight dancers,” said Richard Crick, community health coach for Live Well Suffolk. “But our courses target those who are not physically active and want to make changes.”

Classes run on a six-week cycle, giving participants the chance to learn about the hidden benefits of exercise including making you feel more positive, as well as picking up the basic techniques. For more information visit www.livewellsuffolk.org.uk.
