2 years ago I started, what has been an incredible journey – having previously only been in a gym once and having a very sedentary job, I was trying to exercise but lacked know how and motivation. I joined Louise’s classes, intending to do a 6 week course but I loved it so much I’ve kept going.
Since lockdown both Louise and Claire have provided varied, fun classes online. Their energy is infectious and really motivating. Everyone is so friendly, it’s a real mix of ability and age. Every class is different so you can’t get bored! It’s honestly a brilliant way to lose weight and get fit.
Audrey and I have been training with Louise, and more generally Heaven and Hell, for over 8 years. Louise is our personal trainer, who we train with twice a week, but for most of that time, we have also benefited from regular group strength, cardio and mobility classes. As well as enabling us to control our weight we are also experiencing a high level of personal, every-day-life fitness as never before. The feeling of physical and mental wellbeing is a daily positive, as well as an almost complete absence of falling ill with viruses and other illnesses.
During ‘lockdown’ we moved seamlessly from face-to-face classes to the continuing benefits of on-line personal training and classes. Heaven and Hell did this so quickly and effectively that there was no interruption of our training regime. We continue to use the remote facility that Heaven and Hell continue to offer, even though there are now again face-to-face classes. Louise and Claire have very cleverly combined the 2 means of engaging together so as to continue to support clients like Audrey and I who remain wary about group training sessions.
We applaud the positive, personal and friendly approach taken to our training sessions. It is hard to imagine our weekly routine in these difficult time without their willing help, support and encouragement.
Claire and Louise have been absolutely incredible this year and a real lifeline. Throughout lockdown, they have created a strong, happy and positive community and have kept us all fit. I am really happy to be a part of what they do. Whether it is Pilates or kickboxing, yoga or HIIT we all work to our own level and are given different options to suit our ability and encouraged all the way through.
Their classes fill me with happiness, almost always make me laugh and definitely make me feel better, stronger and full of energy. It is great to see new faces and hear what other people are up to.
Claire and Louise are bursting with enthusiasm and energy and it certainly rubs off.
Keep it up ladies, we would be lost without you.
I have been doing Heaven and Hell fitness and Pilates classes for over 10 years and I cannot praise Claire and Louise highly enough for the great job they do. Their enthusiasm and positive energy is fantastic.
Since lockdown hit and face-to-face classes had to stop they have done an amazing job of switching to online classes. I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve been fitter than I have for the last six months – the classes are still great fun, with lots of energy and a wonderful community spirit. In addition, they have now also added yoga to their timetable, so not only can I do the high energy cardio workouts, and strength training, I can also relax and calm my mind.
Every class can be done by anyone of any age or ability- there are always different levels you can choose to work at and now you can do it all from your own home, it couldn’t be easier!
In this current crazy world, Heaven and Hell are the perfect package to keeping me sane and healthy!
Thank you, Claire, Louise and Kay
Claire and Louise’s classes have literally saved my sanity during the lockdown. Already a huge fan of the live face to face Pilates and HITT classes before lockdown last March, I found the switch to live zoom classes brilliant. Claire and Louise are hugely experienced, professional and lead classes in a very warm, welcoming and friendly way. They offer a variety of levels for different fitness and are total pros at managing the screens and explaining everything. There is a huge variety on offer from laid backstretch and yoga to high energy HITT or boxercise. I honestly cannot recommend them highly enough. The introduction of the pre-records has also been a godsend to me; being able to fit in a 45-minute work out in my home whenever I can grab the time is fantastic.
I would love to find the time to go back to a studio and do classes face to face, and Claire and Louise offer this as well! However for me, the live Zoom and pre-records work amazingly well for anyone juggling work from home, childcare/ school and wanting to stay fit, healthy and sane.
Thanks, Claire and Louise for all you do!
Being a mum to a toddler and a needy rescue dog as well as running a business can make finding time for fitness a challenge! So the online classes that Claire and Louise introduced have been a godsend. These two ladies approach everything with such enthusiasm it’s impossible not to be inspired to get moving. The classes are varied and fun with something for everyone. Whether you join them face to face at one of their COVID secure locations or from your own home via Zoom you’re sure to have a blast x
