Working with an array of different ages, abilities and special needs, Lorna has over the years developed skills and expertise in delivering fun, safe and effective physical activity sessions based on the individual’s needs and requirements.
Working as a Personal Trainer motivating and encouraging participants to realise their short and long term goals has played a big part of Lorna’s career path, together with working with elderly groups for falls prevention. Helping those with health issues such as dementia, Parkinson’s disease, stroke patients and many other long term physical and mental impairments has given Lorna an insight into how disability can impact the everyday lives of individuals and how physical activity and social interaction can improve overall wellbeing of all participants.
Lorna’s previous role of volunteer sports coordinator for the Monday Night Club has developed skills within an inclusive adapted sports session. Working with individuals with challenging needs has been both an invaluable and rewarding experience and Lorna currently provides Dance Fitness and fun sports session at the Monday Night Club.
