We are delighted to announce Picky @ Home - our new online home workout platform!

We've loved the opportunity to teach you classes online, but now it's time to change it and make it even better until we can reopen! Starting next Monday, 14 September, members will get access to our exclusive Picky @ Home Facebook group offering at least six classes per week. You can catch up with these classes at anytime, and if you sign up for more weeks you'll not just get that week but all the sessions from previous.
