About Jacquie D

Jacquie D.

I have been teaching group fitness classes since 2005 and specialise in senior/rehab fitness (Cardiac rehab, mental health, Falls Prevention) as well as teaching Zumba (I love dancing) and strength classes.

I’m particularly interested in how our bodies change as we age and what types of exercise help us to maintain a healthy body as we get older. I personally practise yoga,  walk a lot and of course swim!

I was a competitive swimmer as a child and worked as a swimming teacher and lifeguard throughout university.
