Retro Aerobics

Class leader: Will Barnes
Price: £4.00 per class, pay as you go
Ability: All

Retro Aerobics is what it says on the tin. Going back to all those aerobic moves everyone knows and loves, who doesn’t love a grape vine or a leg curl. Cheesy songs from the 70s all the way up to modern pop. It’s an all levels/all abilities class where you can feel safe and comfortable on the fitness journey you want to take. No one is here to judge; we are just here to have fun.

I’m Will, a student here at YSJ. I’m 33 and for the last 25 years have worked professionally within the performing arts industry as a dancer, having had opportunities to perform across the world within companies like Disney and Sony. I’m so happy that my background in dance led me to exercise to music classes which I have been teaching now for 10 years. I love aerobics, it is for everyone and is as much about fitness as it is having fun and feeling good about yourself.
