Leisure at Richmond April 2014 eBulletin


Welcome to our April eBulletin.

If you’re looking forward to two weeks on a sun-kissed beach, relaxing and soaking up the sun, you’re going to want to look your best by getting fit for the beach beforehand. Toned legs and upper arms, a slim waist and that “healthy glow” don’t appear overnight, so the key to getting “beach ready” is to start your health and fitness plan early rather than attempting a crash course in training and dieting. Here at Feel Good Fitness we have a wealth of experience and can help you get ready for summer!

Please remember to change your preferences by clicking on the right hand side of the newsletter. Simply update your preferences with items that interest you and you will only receive this information moving forward.

Kind regards
