"I came to the Active for Life session in October 2018 and am so glad I then joined you at Marina Studios to dance after that. I hadn't listened to soul/funk for years - was quite into it in my teens but then got into other genres but now it's what I listen to mostly as I find it so uplifting but also I've enjoyed being introduced to the afrobeats you play in class too 😁 It's taken me to get to my mid-fifties to find something I love so I'm grateful to you for that".

"As a nearly mid 50’er I had kind of given up on finding exercise that did not feel like it was high pressure to achieve and look great. It does not even feel like exercise it feels like fun! Love the classes"

"At last I've found a fitness class I love. JP is such fun and along with amazing music you somehow keep going for the whole class. No complicated moves or choreography and he lets you "freestyle" in practically every song. Come along- you won't regret it!"

- Katharine Branch

"I recently booked a FunkFit class with JP for 25 women on a hen party and it was AMAZING!!!! We had a day and night full of activities, but the one thing everybody is still talking about is the FunkFit!!! Everybody loved it! We were a group ranging between 30 - 70 years old, many of us don't do regular exercise and some were a bit apprehensive of the idea to start with but JP was such a brilliant teacher that every single person commented that they'd like to do it again. So much so that we're all hoping he'll start running a class in our home town outside of Brighton soon! He made us sweat, but most importantly he made us laugh and have fun, dancing around like no-one was watching. It was the perfect start to the day and a great ice-breaker! He even arranged a champagne reception for our group. Just perfect! JP, please come open a new studio near us! You have a new client base ready and willing! Highly recommended"

-Claire Nicola Goodchild

I absolutely love your classes.. the energy and enthusiasm you bring to class each week is unmatched by any other dance or fitness class I have ever taken! You inspire us all to just dance, without judgement and my Monday night fix keeps me cookin’ on funk for the rest of the week! Awesome!!! 🙌 Thank you"
