Nigel Hopwood – testimonial

I have just turned 50 – and have always considered myself reasonably “fit and healthy” having been a member of the gym for years, plus I always swim at least twice a week and used to run loads when I was younger. My opinion of Personal Trainers was “what can they do for me…that I cannot do myself”?? Well a chance meeting with Lee at the B.Stoke Gym in Jan 2012 changed that! – I was looking at one of his boot camp leaflets when he “caught me” and said “why not give it a try”? – I thought, oh well… may as well give it a go (but was not convinced) anyway, over the following 12 weeks I realised I was not as fit as I thought I was. (most people going into the gym do the “same old routine” and don’t push themselves, and I fell into that category) at the end of the 12 weeks I had significantly increased my fitness level, and improved my overall body tone. I still go to some of his sessions, and they are always varied (I have done exercises I had never even heard or thought of!) and enjoyable – always with some good banter! – Age is NO barrier, and Lee encourages you without being over pushy. There is a good variety of people in his sessions, of all ages & levels of fitness, but he does a great job of including everyone ,and encourages you to work hard so you see real results. Its not expensive, and in my opinion money spent on your health and fitness is well worth it. Give it a try – what have you got to lose? Nigel Hopwood
