A GROWN-UP woman has admitted she is paying to learn how to do handstands.
Helen Stephens said she had succumbed to the latest fitness craze that could just easily be done in the living room or back garden without a ‘qualified instructor’.
Stephen said: “I’m really worried about my ‘core’. I don’t know exactly what that is, but as far as I understand, nothing is more important.
“Allegra, my handstand instructor, tells me that I’m now handstanding at a semi-professional level.”
Meanwhile, children who do dozens of handstands a day have offered to teach adults for far less than the £35 an hour they will currently be paying to people like Allegra.
Nine-year-old Emma Bradshaw said: “It’s just a handstand. It’s meant to be fun. Each one of my handstands is perfectly executed and I don’t ever mention my core.”
She added: “I’m making a list of things not to spend money on when I’m a grown up.”
