Recently I took part in my first Gymstick course run by Marietta one week before going on holiday. It was the Gymstick for PT workshop and I purchased a Gymstick with a view to using it in my Personal Training sessions. My alternative motive was to take the Gymstick away with me on holidays to maintain my fitness. I followed the routine on the poster given with the gymstick and worked up quite a sweat as well as creating quite a bit of interest amongst the passengers. The gymstick folded up and fit in my husband’s suitcase, mine been too full of souvenirs and clothes. Thanks Marietta for introducing me to this wonderful portable, do anywhere exercise stick.
