I was quite delicate after major breast reconstruction surgery and I hadn't done any exercise other than walking occasionally for quite some time and I also had a historic back complaint. I was wary about hurting myself but Vanessa is supportive and tailored the exercises to suit me. I feel more flexible, toned and I have a waist!
