I remember the day my daughter came home from the gym after a PT session and saying “Mum you should do it, you’ll enjoy it!” I have been involved in sport since dating my husband in our teens but only as a supporter, taxi, tea lady or child entertainer during cricket, football or golf games! I had been going to the gym and seen people working with PT instructors and thought Id like to do that but need to get fitter before I even consider it. My daughter did persuade me to contact Alun and book my first session! I stood in the changing room taking deep breaths to calm myself, petrified of what I was about to go and attempt! I really did not need to worry as Alun was great and took each stage at my level, explaining each piece of equipment I used. Alun changes his sessions frequently and so working with a wide range of equipment or doing a set of exercises that are varied make the sessions enjoyable and we have a laugh too! Alun recently introduced boxing into my sessions which I’m loving as its another fun way to get fit.
I have now built up a good level of fitness that I thought I would never have. I have far more energy, flexibility and have lost weight dropping 2 dress sizes, which has given me the excuse to go and shop!! My original aim with Alun was to get fitter and loose weight but to my surprise the biggest reward is how I feel mentally, I’m so much happier about myself and having more energy helps as I’m in a classroom with young children all day. I look forward to my workout each week; it not only makes me work harder but I know how to use the equipment correctly getting a better workout when working independently. The hardest thing to do is start, but it’s so satisfying doing something for yourself and Alun makes it achievable! Thanks Alun!
