”I’d been feeling quite sluggish for a while and also losing strength. Not so unusual for a woman in her late fifties, but not a nice feeling. In the Autumn of 2018 I finally walked in (after cycling past for weeks and procrastinating). Best move ever! I thought I would feel too old, too unfit, too ‘not the Functional Fitness type’, but that never happened.

I go 3x a week. Every session is different and challenging but nothing is impossible, a scaled option is always there when needed. The coaches are super knowledgeable, encouraging and patient. They are also wonderful and lovely human beings who are able to bring out the potential in everybody at any level of strength and fitness.

Valesco is an amazing, welcoming and diverse community. Giving and receiving support from everybody in the session is great. I’ve not had a so-so session. I’ve totally surprised myself at what I’ve achieved so far. I’ve become much stronger and faster than I thought I could be and I continue to make gains. Onward and upward”.
