Information about the course and venue was good so were the facilities. The trainer gave great instructions and was extremely helpful. I found the equipment ok to use. The pace of the day was perfect. I’m very happy with the work I produced and would like to do other courses.
It was a really enjoyable day and I came away feeling very satisfied and with the confidence to tackle it on my own.  Linnette was very encouraging and made it a very relaxed and fun day.
