Dani-GRPCCDani is a mum of one, soon to be two, and explains why she loves her decision to return to Physie as a lady and a mum.
When did you start Physie and why? How old were you?
I did physie for 11 years when I was 6 to 16 years old. I took it up again 7 years ago at the age of 33.
What do you love about Physie? Most of all I love the social aspect. I’ve made some wonderful friends in the last 7 years and still enjoy catching up with friends who I did physie with as a little girl. And of course I love the fitness and flexibility that physie brings. I’m very proud to say that at 9 months pregnant I was still able to put my hands flat on the floor beside my feet!
What is your most memorable Physie moment?
I would say making ladies national finals with two of my dearest friends in 2011. It was so exciting that all three of us were there together.Dani-and-the-girls
How has Physie changed since you did Physie as a junior?
Less big hair, less makeup and less fake tan, particularly for the juniors, which is a fabulous thing. The girls look like little girls rather than dolls. I would also have to say the syllabus incorporates more elements of dance and yoga than it did when I was younger.
What would you say to someone thinking about coming back to Physie?
Don’t think about it, just do it – you’ll make great friends and improve your fitness and flexibility at the same time.
What would you say to someone who has never done Physie and thinking of giving it a go?
Don’t hesitate – it’s great fun and you’ll get loads of help along the way.
How would you describe your Physie Club?
It’s truly a lovely physie club – there’s a great sense of camaraderie among all members. We practice hard but have loads of laughs along the way.
