I’m Lucy Stevenson, mum to two teenage boys (I know right!!), a Director of Just Movement and senior class Leader. I started out attending Zumba classes with Anne many years ago and soon was hooked. Fast forward a few years and I am running my own Zumba and Zumba Gold classes and helping Anne with Chair based Zumba classes too.

Having previously worked as a HCA in the Community District Nursing team, I recognise the need for exercise, continuing independence and the avoidance of isolation in older adults. And I do have a soft spot for the older generation, they are such valuable members of the community and often overlooked and ignored.

I have my Zumba & Zumba Gold qualification, Safeguarding Adults, First Aid, Chair Based exercise Leaders Level 2 and Group Exercise Leader Level 2 and almost completed Pilates Level 3 and Level 3 Designing Exercises for Older Adults to name a few qualifications, however I constantly learn to keep up with the most recent teachings.

I now run a regular weekly chair class in Meltham and also deliver sessions to various community groups on a regular basis. I have to say, it’s the highlight of my week. The class is so uplifting and fun and I really feel such a great group spirit with everyone. Secretly I do take an immense pride when I see someone moving a little better, cracking a smile or just tapping along with the music.

I always tell people, especially new joining people, that even my Mum comes to class – that’s how much I believe in what I do. I cannot express what a joy and a privilege it is to work with the Just Movement team and for all the Just Movement attendees.
