Ash and his staff always helpful and ready with good advice
When I reached the age of 65 I was summoned to my doctors for a ‘well man’ check-up.
I had a left hip resurface when I was 61 and was quite surprised to see my weight had gone up to 92kg [14st 7lb]. When I was weighed at my ‘well man’ I was 96kg over 15st and told I was obese, I must say this shook me, I had never been skinny but always been active, playing football, squash, tennis and running, realised I was carrying too much weight
I made up my mind I needed to lose some weight but I did not want just to do the latest fad diet where you lose weight but after a while just put it all back on. So I went to the Swaffham gym and spoke to Ash, he gave me a free induction session, after I had filled in a medical questionnaire and explained how he could help. I signed up because I didn’t have to commit to a lengthy contract but a rolling monthly contract which was paid by direct debit and was very reasonable.
I started my fitness journey, now just over 4 years later, I now weigh 12stone and my eating habits and diet have been changed as well. I thought if I was exercising I could eat what I liked, when I liked and as much as I liked. Ash recommended me a nutritionist who after talking to me and getting me to fill in a very comprehensive questionnaire, then completely changed the way I ate and what I ate.
This alongside a personal fitness programme drawn up for me by Ash, over the years have enabled me to lose weight and keep it off. The result is I feel better physically, never suffer with any sickness and can enjoy life to the full especially playing with my grandchildren.
I want to thank Ash and all the staff at the gym, for their patience, encouragement, expertise but most of all for going the extra mile to help me and other patrons at this gym.
I would thoroughly recommend Everybody Health and Fitness – [Swaffham and Downham Market] to anybody whatever your age or fitness level, just come along and speak to one of the team.
