returning to fitness

We can help get your whole body moving again after taking a break.

Whatever your reason for restarting your fitness journey now, you will find a friendly welcome, and an open and knowledgeable approach to helping you with your fitness journey.

The studio operate a full schedule of weekly classes - something for every body!

Knowledge and experience

My name is Oonagh McDevitt, and I have extensive experience in designing and teaching exercise to beginners through to experienced fitness individuals. This includes taking account of a wide variety of medical conditions, injuries, and referrals from Physios and GPs - see medical referrals.  

Take things at your pace

During your first classes, work at the level that is right for you now, not where you were before your break.

Listen to your body, do your best, and be consistent over time to improve your fitness. Listening to your body can be hard - particularly if it wants to take things easy when you never had to take it easy before.

Ask if you are unsure - our aim is for you to get the most out of each of your sessions.

Muscle memory

If you had good fitness before your break, your muscle memory reduces fitness restoration time.

Muscle memory refers to the efficiency of our muscle/brain connection when certain movement patterns are repeated. The more times a certain thing is done, then the less brainpower is needed to repeat it.

Taking a break from exercise may result in a reduction in any muscle/brain efficiency gained through exercise.

However, restarting exercise allows you to rebuild and develop this muscle/ brain efficiency.
