Would you like even more interaction? Or personal coaching?

Group courses are great if you want more contact and interaction with the instructor or a personal fitness, dance or health coaching session – although there is a charge. You can pay to join smaller group courses in which the course leader – just like in a normal course – can interact and communicate more directly with the individual participants. You can do more targeted training with a specific fitness, dance or health coach with whom you can set personal goals and develop training sessions tailored to your needs.
