Hi I'm Sarah and I run Xo ciZe in South Manchester. Ever since I was a teenager I have loved aerobics, the Shape Challenge was one of my favourites. My focus was never really on trying to shed the pounds or muscle up, I just loved doing it for the fun of trying to learn a new workout to a great tune. As a bi-product everyone always commented on how good I looked and I felt really good. When Popmobility disappeared from our communities I was devastated. This, and my love for people, inspired me to create XO ciZe, where we dare to swap the priorities around and make exercise enjoyable again. At XO we work properly, we work hard but we have fun and laugh, sing, make friends, build confidence. XO ciZe really is exercise in disguise!
Hi I’m Shazz and I run the XO classes in North Manchester. I absolutely love exercise and realise the benefits not just the physical aspects but I believe exercise plays and important role in health and wellbeing. I found that committing to exercise has helped me keep on an even keel and given me lots of energy and sparkle. I’m dedicated to helping others achieve their goals and believe in themselves.
I love the fact that in my XO ciZe classes I have a wide range of members, different ages and different abilities, we all work out and have so much fun. Each week I see members improve and become more confident, that’s something I’m really proud of. The members get involved, make new friends and suggest music to work out to. That’s what XO ciZe is, it’s inclusive and the members make the class. I’m so proud of what we have achieved already together and I look forward to what’s to come!
