Islington Gazette reporter, Zoe Paskett, came along to SwingTrainer Caitlin‘s class in Islington.
All our trainers aim to create a community feel in their classes and Caitlin succeeds in making everyone feel welcome.
“Accessibility wise, [Caitlin’s] right – this class has participants from teens to 30-somethings to 50-somethings, some of whom have swung before (not that kind), but many who haven’t.”
But the fun and community don’t make it any less of a workout. Here’s what Zoe had to say about the exercise part:
“It’s hard and it’s fast and there’s not a lot of time to get your breath back. But the smiling part is completely true; it is unbelievably fun and the tunes keep you from wanting to collapse.”
But by far our favourite quote was this:
“Caitlin is upbeat and encouraging, but in an authentic sort of way rather than a toddler-on-speed sort of way.”
You can join the fun of Caitlin’s class every Saturday 11.45am (except the last one of each month) at the Walter Sickert Community Centre, Islington.
