Getting Married? Want to look fab on your big day? Don't
have the time? We run specialist courses for bride and
grooms in our Power Plate and Personal training studio.

The 20 minute classes are very popular with time poor
professionals. With over 16 years experience training brides
and grooms Jane Dowling opened her studio in the
Leathermarket 3 years ago and now is seeing some brides in
her Post Natal classes! The results speak for themselves.
