I love keeping fit and I love working out in groups its so much more fun that running on a treadmill or working alone. Team work brings the best out of me, I have got fitter and made some fantastic friends.
I love boxing and have been going to boxercise , I am looking forward to trying out the new boxing station at Group Fitness. This year I have just completed my first half marathon not bad for a 60 years old. Great way to make friends and great fun.
I first came to Group Fitness with an aim of getting fitter and healthier…… I was a bit dubious. I have been to other gyms and leisure centres and was not comfy and felt like I was being watched and judged and compared against and generally felt like I didn’t belong. . . . . .
The pricing is great too. as a start I just paid per class again no commitment just in case but then as my enthusiasm grew I just pay monthly again no commitment either.
So I started with just 2 classes a week to see how I got on and how I felt. Then I had the odd PT with Ian to give me some one to one support and assistance and moved on from there.
10 months on I now. . . . . . . . . . .
Attend a class 6 times a week. I do spin classes twice a week. I have dropped some poundage and also melted some of my love handles away too!!!!
I have never been to a fitness centre where you are welcomed for you and supported for your personal achievements not what society dictates what you should be doing
Everyone here has there own journey and goals and every supports each other with vigour respect and friendship! ! !
All of the instructors are approachable and helpful. if I cannot do a move tell them and there is another options to choose from, no bother. everything is adaptable so you are capable of achieving anything!
Even when I am swearing at them during class it makes them happy that they are being listened to and it makes me feel good to know I can work hard in a safe environment amongst friends!
Long May It Continue. I meet new people with new journeys and we go on at it together and for each other.
Many thanks for coming into my life.
I started going to combat and aerobics with my wife, no coordination and no balance, 3 years on I still have no coordination or balance but I have fun and I have lost 17lbs in weight. People I have not seen for ages comment on how slim I look. I never though I would enjoy fitness this much. What's more I can now run.
I go to Ian's Curcuits, I run and have just completed the Robin Hood half marathon
Just what I needed, great fun great classes and what more great results.
Thanks to all the group fitness team!
I joined GFitness, with an initial goal to lose rweight and gain some fitness to help improve my running times.
But this place has become more than just a place to exercise; I’ve become great friends with lots of members and the staff too.
