Peninsula, Manchester"Wil puts a lot of thought into his training plans, for example because we work office based he ensures there is always an exercise in there for our backs. All that go have nothing but praise for the class, it is fun but you can definitely feel the benefits of going the next day! It has also created a strong friendship between the people that attend regularly who, in a 12 floor building wouldn’t necessarily ordinarily cross paths."
Lisa Ashbourne - Departmental Coordinator - Employment Services
O2, Manchester“We had a brilliant week of briefing sessions learning all about how to increase activity and movement at work, as well as some useful nutritional information and guidance. The team responded really well and continued to pass their learnings on to one another throughout the week. We’ve continued to put what we learnt into practice and I feel it’s had a really positive impact on the team as a whole.”
Amelia - Store Manager
Cushman & Wakefield, London"Open Minded Fitness Group ran an exciting and energising session for our group. The focus of the session was carefully designed around our brief and they provided diagrams and drawings that we could use for staff to take away as helpful reminders. The workshop was fun, thought-provoking and aimed at increasing the health and wellbeing of our staff. I have no hesitation in recommending Wil or Natalie – they are both excellent instructors with a clear passion and enthusiasm for their jobs."
Lynne Henderson - Associate Director of Marketing
David Luke, Manchester"Wil’s sessions with the team at David Luke have brought so much to our Wellbeing Programme. We have staff who are sedentary all day in front of a computer screen and some who carry out a lot of manual handling as part of their job. Wil has introduced many different exercises to help support the different needs people have.
Providing the opportunity to develop exercise and relaxation skills to both people who already had experience and others who had never participated in this kind of activity before, Wil has been able to appeal to the whole spectrum. He has an ability to connect with everyone and his sessions have been very popular. Offering yoga/strength and stretch (whatever you want to call it!) is really important to me in my company – it appeals to people who want to work in a progressive workplace where their wellbeing is valued and it also helps to support those who do not give their health enough of a priority to introduce practices that keep them fit and well."
