Prior to training with us at MEE-FIT Deb was primarily keeping fit by swimming and occasional aerobic classes;
“I was a member at another local gym, but only ended up swimming as I didn’t feel comfortable in the gym, feeling very intimidated when in there on my own.
When I first joined they worked out a training plan for me but then I seemed to be left to my own devices. I wasn’t sure if I was doing things correctly or not, and very quickly got bored with it.
I attempted some of their classes, but it was all a little fast paced for me and my knees didn’t like it. I never felt like it was tailored to me and my fitness level, so I quickly gave those up too.”
Deb knew she wanted to do more exercise and push her fitness that little bit further, but wasn’t sure how to go about it;
“I saw a post from MEE-FIT on Facebook which had so many positive comments from their members which really caught my eye.
I saw they offered a 30 day trial and thought why not give it a try. I didn’t know anyone who trained at MEE-FIT at the time, but liked the idea of a more personalised approach.”
Deb completed her 30 day trial with us back in November 2017, and has been a member with us ever since;
“I just loved it from the off set! It is so different to other gyms where you can feel intimidated by other stronger members. Everyone looks out for everyone at MEE-FIT. We’re like a big family, there is so much encouragement from the coaches & the other members that you can’t help but improve & get fitter.”
When Deb started with us she struggled massively with lower back pain, which she was very concerned about damaging further;
“I can’t explain the difference in my back since starting. One of the things I’m most pleased with is my deadlifts! When I first started I really struggled with these and it took a long time for me to master them. I was very concerned about hurting my back lifting weights. But with the encouragement & support of the coaches I actually look forward to “deadlift” day!”
When we asked Deb for her final words on MEE-FIT for anyone who is thinking of getting started with us she had this to say;
“MEE-FIT is an amazing place! I love the coaches and all the members.
I never thought I’d say this but I actually really miss it when I’m away & always look forward to getting back in to the gym when I’m back.
I’ve made some great friends since I joined the gym and there never goes a session where you don’t come out feeling positive about what you’ve achieved plus having a giggle with an amazing bunch of guys.”
