Ondie did much more than help me shape up after hip replacement surgery. She introduced me to a new improved lifestyle with a high level of support, both personal and psychological, expert knowledge and a personalised gym plan progressing month by month which I was able to follow at home. Ondie is a great trainer and makes getting fit and keeping that way fun and exciting.

Ondie uses a mix of disciplines that will not be found in a conventional gym or class. Cardio-vascular work, pilates, martial arts, ballet and many more skills are combined to give a full, but enjoyable workout. No two Personal Training sessions are ever the same and no matter what your ability / fitness level her cheeky smile always encourages that extra rep or final push. If you want to have fun in getting fit, I would recommend Ondie to you whatever your final goal.

Following a consultation, my programme started. Each week Ondie took me through a combination of exercises to develop my strength, balance, coordination and core stability. Not only did she help me get my strength back but she gave me back my confidence and help me build on my self-esteem. This lady doesn’t take any prisoners, but gets results. Her knowledge and skills are second to none and in my opinion there is no one better!

I love Ondie’s classes! Since Christmas I have been attending regularly three to four times a week and am amazed at the difference it has made. I feel fitter, stronger and my body shape has changed. Ondie’s classes are the best I have tried – and I have tried them all! She is a great teacher and motivator. Her classes are fun and I always feel great afterwards. She takes time to show you exactly how to do each exercise properly and encourages everyone to give 100% effort and it shows! Thanks Ondie.
