Fully qualified staff are readily available to provide help and guidance whenever required, tailoring exercise programmes to individual needs.
Their primary aim is to ensure that safe and effective techniques are always employed.
June believes that anyone, of any age and any physical condition can benefit from exercise and since establishing Fitness Finesse she has worked in conjunction with the Community Health Officer in furthering the local Doctor Referral Scheme (Bradford Encouraging Exercise in People – ‘BEEP’).
YMCA and City & Guilds qualified, June obtained a Foundation Degree in Health Related Exercise & Fitness in 2003 and has recently become an approved BACPR (British Association For Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation) Phase IV Instructor.
In addition to her gym commitments June introduced a peripatetic fitness service to local primary schools, tutored Sports Science (NVQ Levels 1 & 2) at Dewsbury College, is a visiting lecturer at Bradford College and has recently been a member of the Bradford University panel responsible for designing a curriculum for the newly introduced Health Related Exercise & Fitness degree.
I have held a keen interest in fitness related activities for as long as I care to remember. My determination to maintain my own personal fitness spurred me on to become a qualified aerobics instructor and I have now been teaching classes for the best part of 30 years.I have always believed that anyone, no matter what medical problem they may have, can participate in some form of exercise and this maxim is particularly relevant to those with cardiac related conditions. Phase IV is a hugely important element in the process of building self-confidence and reintroducing individuals to a full and active life following cardiac illness and it is with this belief that we have now made this facility available in Bradford
