I was looking for a way to get fit that didn’t involve a gym or going it alone. I signed up for the outdoor group fitness classes being run by Michael Berry mainly because they offered a group training scenario and because they were offered outdoors.

It didn’t take long for me to realise that Michael offered something special in his classes. Not only was he motivating, patient and knowledgeable, he was also wise in the way he adapted exercises that suited the fitness levels of different members of the group. As a bonus, he would present pearls of wisdom that helped us in our lives beyond the scope of the classes. I would recommend Michael Berry to anyone seeking a motivating and extremely positive person to help them to dynamically and holistically live their life to the fullest.
