After the Easter scoff-fest, and as magazines begin to herald the latest way to get a 'Beach Ready Body' for Summer, minds may well be turning back to those abandoned gym resolutions.

The other women in the class wore beautifully cut, soft workout clothes, perfectly suited to the movements of the class.
