We are proud to help, support and develop local sporting talent here at Great Fitness. We have many local athletes from all different sports who train at our facility.
It is our pleasure to introduce one of our members here at Great Fitness: Robert Jones. Rob joined us in December 2014 with the goal, like many others, to lose weight. A sedentary lifestyle had contributed to a weight just shy of 16 stone.
Rob decided to turn to personal training and committed to our Bronze Package. Following a consultation, Rob began a plan comprised of one PT session a week, a personally devised exercise program to focus on in his free time, and nutritional advice. With these lifestyle changes in place, the transformation began. A combination of cardio, resistance training and a balanced diet saw the pounds drop off. Rob’s transformation is not only physical; he has grown in confidence and shows a keen interest in fitness. Now weighing in at 12 and a half stone, Rob is hoping to partake in long distance charity bike rides. This was once a daunting prospect, but with his confidence continuously growing, he is ready to face the challenge and raise money for a charity that is close to his heart.
With no past experience in the gym or any physical activity, Rob has proven that it is possible to change a lifestyle through hard work and dedication. The next stage for Rob is strength and conditioning. He is already showing drastic improvement in the gym, with emphasis on interval training to advance his fitness levels. It has been, and still is, a pleasure to train Rob; his determination to progress is to be commended and he is a true testament to what we strive to achieve for our clients here at Great Fitness.
