"They have a playpen set up for 9.30am classes every day. You are obviously responsible for your own child, but they can sit in there drawing, playing or using an iPad while you workout. The classes are challenging and cater for all exercise abilities. They offer meal plans and challenges to help you achieve your goals." - MMG member
