Tina Polak – testimonial

Almost eighteen months ago I saw an advert for Lee’s ‘Bootcamp’ on a table in the Leisure centre. While I was reading it a guy appeared over my shoulder and said ‘Go on, sign up’ I explained that I was over 50, overweight ,unfit and would never be seen in a gym kit. The guy turned out to be Lee who assured me that I would fit in very well with his group and many of the others felt the same. I persuaded a friend to come with me and we have never looked back. Many of my friends want to lose weight or become fitter but never do anything about it. I found that the more exercise I did the more I wanted to do, so it had a ‘knock on’ effect and I went back to swimming that I hadnt done for years and am now considering entering a ‘Tough Mudder’ event! I won’t be able to run all the way, I may not be strong enough to complete some of the obstacles but I do have enough confidence and determination to have a go and have fun. Lee is a fantastic trainer, very professional and very knowledgable. He pushes you but never shouts or bullies you. He will change the exercises we do if you have specific health problems ( I have fairly dodgy knees)! so you never feel left out or awkward. Doesn’t matter what ‘size’ you are, doesn’t matter if you can’t run, do a press up or balance on one leg. Lee and the rest of the group will welcome you, encourage you and never judge you. You have nothing to lose except weight! and everything to gain especially fitness, confidence and friends!
