As a parent of two daughters who both seriously do sports, I have tried a number of strength and conditioning programs but nothing quite like Farfalla Flexibility and Strength program. My daughters Nicole (figure skater and ex-rhythmic gymnast) and Elina (tennis player and ex-rhythmic gymnast) have been training with Farfalla during the past three years with really positive experiences. I would highly recommend Farfalla fitness to any sportsman. Many thanks to Iryna for all she has done and continues to do for my daughters.
We started at Farfalla Fitness over a year ago. Iryna is a wonderful and dedicated coach and takes each child to his or her full potential. Coach Iryna is world class and brings out the best in each child. She is firm and has high expectations, but very loving and encouraging. Coach Iryna has transformed our little shy daughter into a confident young lady and we are grateful. My friends and the other ice skating moms have noticed my daughter’s presence on ice and have complimented her skating. Even her ice skating coach is impressed.
Farfalla Fitness teachers are very knowledgeable and have a great personality, so my daughter likes going to those flexibility classes with pleasure. Moreover, my daughter’s posture and overall flexibility have been improved a lot. Highly recommend!
Two months ago, I decided to search for local flexibility/stretching classes for my daughter, who is now 6 years old. I found this great flexibility program, Farfalla Fitness. Teachers are very professional and know their work a 100 %. Glad they was able to offer private lessons. Highly recommend!
