The lovely Shona has been baking her amazing cakes for the Midday Movers at the end of every month and they are absolutely loving it! Our Midday Movers is a fitness class specifically designed for people with physical limitations such as injury, fitness level and age.
Hype promotes a strong sense of community and we strongly believe in the importance of social connection, especially for the seniors. We offer a complimentary tea and coffee after every class to provide all the members a chance to get to know each other and create friendships.
The Midday Movers thoroughly enjoyed this month’s amazing cake, and it has got them guessing for what the next cake may be!
