I just wanted to say how glad I am that I made the decision to Join Lifestyle Fitness. It was a rash decision made in December before the club opened (and with the prior knowledge that I had joined gyms before with little success). Now, with only 4.5 months’ training under my belt, I am 1.5 stones lighter and am already twice as fit…actually probably more! I visit 6 times a week – and I am a 42 year old who ‘didn’t like gyms’ previously.

The main difference for me is finding an amazing personal trainer, Rumer Morley. The encouragement, dedication, vitality, knowledge and zest for life that she has is amazing and truly infectious. She makes each session count, always prepares what she wants me to achieve and focuses 100% throughout each session. I actually look forward to our session at 7am on Tuesday morning (which is a bit bizarre as she really does work me hard!!). I push myself more because I want her to see my progress. I suppose that is the secret of a good coach, the ability to lead and inspire. I would, and do, recommend her to anyone.

I also love the gym itself. All the team are happy and friendly and the environment is not intimidating in the slightest. There is a diverse range of equipment which is almost as diverse as the client base – old, young, super-fit and those of us striving to be the best we can be, all getting along just fine side-by-side.

So, thank-you for creating this environment which is making a difference to so many people. Today I realised that, although I love the external results I am seeing, its the inside changes that are the more impressive; I am happier, more motivated and am enjoying the challenge.
