Small group exercise
I group people according to their functional fitness levels and not their age. There is also a social element to exercising in a group, which most people enjoy.

I can also make sure that you’re exercising at the right level for you. This makes your exercise more effective and time efficient. There is also a social element to exercising in a group, which most people enjoy.
