I can now stand and balance on one leg to pull on my trousers by myself
All the members who were there loved it and I was very surprised how much improvement some of them made in their ability to move in such a short time
I have Parkinson’s & had a fall during lockdown. The doctors told me I was unlikely to walk again & to get used to being in a wheelchair & dependant on others. Frank has not only helped me back onto my feet, but has given me back my independence. I can now get up & walk independently to the toilet. That may not seem much, but until you have had to wait for others to help you to go to the toilet (or use a nappy) you don’t know how liberating that is. I would recommend Frank without hesitation
These exercise are thoughoughly enjoyed by all of us, and are proving to be, over time, extremely beneficial both in movement and in muscle strength. The choice of music and easy style make the sessions very pleasurable and we do not hesitate to recommend him
I have been attending Franks classes here since they started and have found them extremely helpful and enjoyable. I suffer from Ostio Arthritis and had a second replacement operation in June. The exercises have been very successful in helping me to regain the confidence to stand, to rise from a chair and to maintain my balance, in fact my general rehabilitation. Frank has a very pleasant and patient manner
Frank is a very pleasant man, always on time, kind and very knowledgeable in all aspects of exercise. I have seen real benefits in my mobility. I am able to do things around my home that I was not able to do before. The classes are very enjoyable and he is very good at motivating me without pushing me to hard. I would not hesitate to recommend Frank
I have been a member of franks Safe & Sound class since it started over two years ago. We are all impressed by his general competence and find him an excellent and considerate teacher. No time is wasted. He is attentive to individual needs and fosters a positive attitude in class
I am thrilled that Frank puts on such a good class for my residents.

I have found him to be responsible and reliable. He gets on very well with our residents and shows a lot of patience and care for them.
