‘SWF is really rather special. A unique combination of friendship and fitness that I have never found anywhere else.’

"Ive never done clubbercise before and It was fantastic really enjoyed it.  Doesn’t matter that I don’t always get the legs and the arms working the right way it’s a chilled and friendly class. You are lovely Lorraine, thank you!"

‘I’ve made friends with the most banging group of people and I can snatch 14kg above my head NO PROBLEM.’

"With passion and commitment Lorraine kept us all motivated, fit and healthy during the COVID. 

Adapting SWF to suit the strange times we were dealing with. Provided a selection of online classes and challenges. I think I was at my fitness during that time. 

Thank you SWF (aka Lorraine)"

"I’ve been going along to Lorraine classes for around 18 months now (the longest I’ve kept up with any regular fitness regime). The main reason for this being the classes she puts together, regardless of which class you book onto, has a complete balance of cardio & weights meaning you will get a total fitness workout no matter how many times you go to a class in a week or which class you attend. 

Classes can be as hardcore or gentle as you want them to be regardless of age or gender, Lorraine always gives alternatives to the moves/weights. 

She watches & intuitively assesses your level quickly, supporting with exercises & encouraging accordingly. 

Lovely area for classes both indoors & outdoors. 

Classes are always good good fun & a laugh - real community spirit! 

I like the fact you have to book on the w/e for the week ahead as we all know that that if you book in advance you are more likely to attend & be accountable. 

If you’re not sure - give it a go!"

"I’ve always forced myself to go to the gym because it felt like the ‘right thing to do’ and it always felt like such a chore. When I came across Lorraine I was going through a difficult time personally; her classes were exactly what I needed and I’ve never looked back. I’m happier, I’m fitter, I’m healthier, and I definitely don’t dread exercising anymore. I also love being surrounded by a group of people from all ages, backgrounds and fitness levels… there is open arms for anyone at SWF"

" I reached out to Lorraine and joined SWF at a really difficult time in my life and I am so glad I did as it’s literally changed my life. To begin with I was really apprehensive and lacking confidence but after some 1-2-1’s with Lorraine and joining some classes online I started to find my mojo again and discovered I actually enjoyed exercising. I was soon joining classes in person and even found myself on the front row!!!


What makes such a difference with SWF compared to other classes or gyms is the support Lorraine gives to everyone, and I mean EVERYONE and that mentality flows through the whole group. Everyone has everyone’s backs and supports each other in the best way possible. 


I might have moved away from Saffron Walden but I can still join everyone online and I feel like I still get the same support as I always did. I miss everyone but that shows me what a special group it is and I love coming back and joining everyone in person when I can!"
