“If a medication existed which had a similar effect to physical activity, it would be regarded as a wonder drug or a miracle cure.”

"First, I can now walk up and down stairs normally, not like a small child leading with the same foot each step. Secondly, I can get up and down from chairs using my legs not my arms" S, 76
“I have given up several physiotherapists or exercise classes in the past, because I became disheartened, or they were painful. This is the most enjoyable class I have been to - I do believe it is helping me, but it is also fun and friendly!” M, 79
