Shirley has been a consistent member with us for the past 7 months and has gone from strength to strength.
Of course, this didn’t happen by chance. Her consistency, willingness to listen and her open-minded approach have been the keys to her success.
Shirley came to us because she was struggling to get through a days work, feeling bloated and uncomfortable in her jeans.
As Shirley works for herself, this wasn’t a great place to be.
I got started because it had gotten to the point where I was feeling very sluggish and low in energy. This started affecting my work and I had to cut my hours back as I couldn’t get through a full day.
I found myself eating more and becoming less active and this just led to a massive decline in my health & fitness.
And of course, I wanted to fit into and feel confident in my clothes which is easier to hide in the winter!
I just didn’t feel the enthusiasm to get up and out. I knew exercise was the key to making you feel better. I knew I could do it but I was after falling too far behind to do it myself so I got in touch after seeing an ad on Facebook.
I had tried doing other things on my own such as running but always found old aches and pains coming back after a few months. I wanted a coach to help me address these things if they returned again so that I could stay on track.
What really stood out to me about yourselves was that I could see you had the clients best interests at heart. I had also heard this from other people so I decided to get started.
The food was a big factor for me but learning how to get a better balance in my diet made a big difference. Simple changes made me fuller for longer and gave me the energy that I was previously lacking. This took a bit of getting used to but at the start but it it’s no problem now.
I suffered neck pain for years but being coached around it, strengthening my body, working on posture, etc. has completely cleared this up.
Since joining I am feeling so much better in myself. I fit into my clothes better, I’ve so much more energy and my mood is much better. I’m now back to working full days and don’t feel the fatigue that I used to at the end of the day.
I get Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) but I find exercising and eating healthier really helps with it. It definitely hasn’t been as bad as it was in previous years since I started- a great knock on effect.
My main focus now is simply to maintain what I have achieved and keep myself fit and healthy.
We asked Shirley what she enjoyed most about working with us?
Your attitude towards your clients is something I haven’t experienced before in other gyms. You can see you care about their personal needs and goals and that you are always there to help with any issues that arise. This compels me to keep coming back 🙂
Any advice for anyone considering working with us but who hasn’t taken that first step yet?
“Definitely give it a try. It’s a bit of a hurdle at the beginning but definitely it’s well worth it and you won’t be sorry. It’s life changing.”
