I became a member in May 2011 after deciding to quit smoking. I remember my first class (BodyCombat) and feeling rather nervous, as I didn’t know anyone. The instructor made me feel extremely welcome, the class was great, and needless to say, I still go to the classes and I’ve made lots of new friends.

I was encouraged to join the running club. Don’t ask me how I was persuaded, as I couldn’t even run to the top of the street! But I did, and with lots of encouragement, motivation and being believed that “I could do it” from the leisure centre staff, I have completed various 5k and 10k runs, with 3 half marathons under my belt, too.
I have been going to gyms and sports centres since 1976 for various activities! Mainly St. Peter’s Centre , I’ve been to all others in the area, both private and council run…From the staff on reception to all the brilliant instructors that train coach and encourage you! Also it attracts a good mix of people from all walks of life that I have made a lot of friends with!
Equipment in the gym is everything you need right down to foam rollers/resistant bands etc. There are always staff members present who will help if needs be. Both gyms have plenty of weights so don’t have to wait for others to finish delaying your own routine..
I attend BodyBalance twice a week and the classes are led by Rebecca and Karly. This class is perfect for what I need….toning, stretching, flexibility to music. I like the fact that the routine changes every three months. Both teachers are good at explaining and demonstrating new moves and are always happy to spend time after the class answering any queries…
Staff in the gym give advice, use initiative and are approachable and interact with users. Karly showed the regulars and me how to use the TRX band and new equipment. I’m taken by all the instructors and the enthusiasm, knowledge and ability to make pain enjoyable is amazing.
Rebecca, & Karly always give 100% in the many fitness classes they undertake…their positive attitude is always there for people to see and they are always full of encouragement, no matter who it is…
