Group fitness instructors – positive feedback

Apr 4 2024


Welcome to Active Nottingham, where group fitness meets success! Our talented instructors have worked tirelessly to facilitate Active Nottingham users to smash their personal fitness goals. We are all about celebrating success so please read on to see some of the amazing feedback we have received lately.

Harvey Hadden Sports Village: 



We have received some fabulous compliments from our Active Nottingham members for Fitness Instructor, LadyMac:

“Please could I give a massive shout out to LadyMac who runs the Zumba sessions at Harvey Hadden. LadyMac never fails to lift you up to the start of the day or finish on a high. Her classes are brilliant, energetic and fun. Thank you for helping me in my fitness journey and lifting my soul! You are amazing! Thank you”

“I would like to compliment Lady Mac, the Zumba instructor at Harvey Hadden Sports Village. She is so dedicated to her classes and very professional. She showers us with so much happiness and sets the trend that we dress up for activities and look our best. Nothing is too difficult for LadyMac. She is approachable and really friendly. She does deserve compliments. I have a nagging knee and she gives me appropriate advice and I feel I can exercise like the rest of the class. Can’t thank her enough.”

“I want to send a rave out to LadyMac for her amazing zumba class…. brilliant thank you!”

Well LadyMac, these amazing compliments really do speak for themselves for what an amazing zumba instructor you are – thank you for making your classes enjoyable for our members – you are a superstar!

We have received another fantastic compliment from our fitness star Tina Chaplin at Harvey Hadden Sports Village.

“Having an injury to my shoulder, I was concerned that I would not be able to take part in a full fitness class.

“However, after I informed Tina, she provided many alternatives so I was able to fully participate in the class.  I was very impressed! Tina is a very professional instructor. Huge thanks!”

Once again fantastic feedback for Tina! Thank you for going out of your way to support members at Harvey Hadden!

We have received a fabulous compliment, through Have Your Say, for fitness instructors Tina Chaplin and Amanda Campbell:

“I have been regularly attending a variety of fitness classes at Harvey Hadden Sports Village for the last 18 months as part of my Active Nottingham membership. My focus and motivation has been to improve my health and fitness level. I want to let you know that this has allowed me to recently complete a challenging camping and hiking trip in Canada. A couple of fitness instructors deserve a special mention for their enthusiasm, professionalism and positive interaction with those in the class – Tina (Fitness Pilates, Group Cycling & Zumba) and Amanda (Fight Club Bag Box). Please pass on my thanks and recognition of them doing a great job in motivating everyone.”

We absolutely love to receive feedback like this! You should be very proud Tina and Amanda – you have both motivated this member and increased their fitness levels and health through your classes. Huge thank you to you both.



A resident who recently visited Harvey Hadden for a class was so impressed they contacted ‘Have Your Say’ to pass on their compliments.

“Excellent Latin fitness and dance fit class with Joanna. She made it so much fun and so enjoyable.”

Thank you Jo for your enthusiasm and energy when covering the Zumba class! It was clearly a hit!



We have received brilliant feedback through Have Your Say for Jo Haynes at Active Nottingham.

“Jo the dance fit teacher is excellent, she makes the class great fun and gives plenty of instruction to allow for different levels of fitness.

“You leave the class with a real feel good feeling. A great way to start the day and also end the week. Thank you!”

Thank you Jo! Your fitness classes are clearly a huge hit with our Active Nottingham members, thank you for being our dance fit star!


Ken Martin Leisure Centre:



We have received a lovely compliment, through Have Your Say, for Krishna who teaches Ashtanga Yoga and Mindfulness on a Monday evening at Ken Martin Leisure Centre.

“I would like to say how pleased I am that a Mindfulness class is being introduced at Ken Martin on a Monday evening. Krishna is amazing. There is no other Yoga / Mindfulness instructor like her. I travel to her classes that are further afield purely for the results that I get from her classes. To have a Krishna’s class starting much closer to home is great!

“Last month I took out a membership for the leisure centres and, based on my visits to these classes alone, I am finding it good value for money. I would also like to add that  Krishna is friendly and takes the time out to speak to anyone that is new. She is very welcoming and a great asset to the council’s leisure team.”

Absolutely fabulous feedback Krishna, thank you for being amazing!

Clifton Leisure Centre:



Renata and Paul at Clifton Leisure Centre have received some great feedback from a customer.

“I would like to compliment Renata on her classes, she goes out of her way to ask what people would like and delivers very professionally – thank you for this blessing.

“Also Paul the new instructor, I speak on behalf of the class, we are all enjoying his new ideas too.

“I do hope this feedback gets to them both as they work so very hard to please, thank you!”

Amazing feedback for our brilliant colleagues at Clifton Leisure Centre! Thank you Renata and Paul, our citizens are very much enjoying your fitness classes!
