Priya’s approach to fitness:
1. When it all goes wrong Priya’s top tip, laugh! Its meant to be fun.
2. Push yourself to a level that you are working hard, but not so you are working too hard.
3. Look after yourself with exercise, healthy food and include that much needed rest time.
4. My classes are for you, so please give feedback, what you like, what you want more of, what’s not working etc…
