Xcite, West Lothian Leisure was delighted to host a Paracise™ masterclass workshop, led by Sarah Goldsack, the inspirational founder of Paracise.™

As a full-time fitness instructor for over 25 years, Sarah has always led a healthy and active life but after being diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy in 2014, her life changed dramatically. Sarah created Paracise™ to help keep active, stay mobile and adjust to the ever changing muscle imbalance in her body. The results have been life changing and Sarah has gone on to train other fitness professionals to become Paracise™ instructors. Xcite have been delivering weekly Paracise™ sessions in venues across West Lothian since 2018 and the class has been a huge success.

The Xcite Ageing Well team were delighted to welcome Sarah along to meet local Paracise™ participants and deliver two 45min Masterclass Sessions at Xcite Craigswood on Saturday 7th May. Sarah and the Xcite Paracise™ instructors were joined by over 120 enthusiastic participants for an inspiring afternoon of music and movement.

Xcite’s Ageing Well Development Officer, Avril Clerkson commented “What a fantastic opportunity for our Xcite team of instructors and Paracise™ participants to meet the wonderful Sarah Goldsack and share the passion and enthusiasm for this wonderful programme.”

Paracise™ is a low impact, gentle but effective exercise class, which offers an entry point to the millions of people who would benefit physically and mentally from lower intensity exercise. The class is ideal for those who find regular fitness classes too demanding or haven't exercised in a long time. The music is uplifting and so much fun!
