She said: “What a fantastic opportunity for our Xcite team of instructors and Paracise participants to meet the wonderful Sarah Goldsack and share the passion and enthusiasm for this wonderful programme.”

Paracise is a low impact, gentle but effective exercise class, which offers an entry point to the millions of people who would benefit physically and mentally from lower intensity exercise.

A spokesperson for Xcite said: “The class is ideal for those who find regular fitness classes too demanding or haven’t exercised in a long time.

“The music is uplifting and so much fun!”
