These are some of the comments that we have received about the course and the training:

bullet

"Our instructor, James, was a super young man who really conveyed his passion and enthusiasm for his subject.   A real find!   His presentation was good and I enjoyed the activities and the wine tasting!!!"

bullet

"I had been looking for training to teach exercise to older people, so to find this course locally was brilliant.   The depth of the syllabus and the professionalism of the tutoring have exceeded my expectations, and learning has been fun." Julie from Wareham, Dorset.

bullet

"I was looking for something where I could use my brain, work with older people and make me feel useful and fulfilled - this course has answered all of those things.   It has been challenging and great fun and I have already got four classes set up and ready to go." Ann from Verwood, Dorset.

bullet

"The information on obesity was really very interesting, I plan to set up an obesity exercise class in the community"

bullet

"The course has given me the knowledge and confidence to set up an exercise class and to prescribe individual exercise programmes" Kath from Wimborne, Dorset.

bullet

"It was a privilege to be allowed to visit and join in some real Younger 4 Longer exercise sessions at the local community hall and the retirement home."

bullet

"It was great fun organising and planning the 'Holiday in the Hall'.   I'm excited by the prospect of organising a health promotion event during part 2 of the course."

bullet

"The teaching practice was valuable and the feedback from everyone was very helpful."

bullet

"I enjoyed the group work, it was good to bounce different ideas off each other and consider all the possibilities."

bullet

"It was really good to be able to watch a real class in action!   I was amazed at the old folk's agility and it was wonderful to see how much they enjoyed it all!   I want to get going on a class of my own now!"

bullet

"I've enjoyed it all, especially the practical sessions."

bullet

"All very interesting - I loved the clog dance by Julie and her paint brush routine was brilliant!"

bullet

"James made it interesting, funny and varied."

bullet

"I really enjoyed visiting the circuit training session and was impressed with the fitness level of the ladies who regularly take part each week."

bullet

"Our tutor, who used to be a nurse, has excellent background knowledge and practical experience which was invaluable. Her support and encouragement was very helpful as I don't come from a nursing background and know very little about the body."

bullet

"I particularly enjoyed the sessions on falls and injuries, in fact, I was fascinated by the different trials that have been carried out.   There is so much room for help and improvement and I can immediately apply these findings to individuals I know in my work setting who would have benefitted hugely from some sort of falls prevention work."  Nicola from Bournemouth.

bullet

"It was excellent to carry out an actual health assessment interview on an older volunteer.   It has made me realise how complex this is as elderly people are on such a lot of medications these days."

bullet

"Our tutor (Diane) was very encouraging and equipped us with all the relevant skills she made it fun so we will remember it, thank you, and the assessor (Miles) really put us at our ease."
