Last year, if anybody had told me that in less than a year, I would be over 115lbs (just over 8 stone) lighter, and 7 dress sizes smaller than I was then, I would have laughed in their faces. Thanks to a friend introducing me to Ladies Of Leisure, that has become reality. Initially I was very nervous, but the staff have proven to be incredibly supportive and helpful in setting realistic and attainable goals. I am now fitter, stronger and more confident than I ever thought I would be.
I was very apprehensive about joining a gym, I thought I was too old. That was ten years ago and I have never looked back! I feel much fitter, stronger and even younger. I have made lots of new friends of all ages and the staff are wonderful, so helpful and encouraging. Don’t hesitate – you’re never too old!
I decided I needed to take action about my weight which had slowly crept up. I saw an advert for Ladies of Leisure, and decided to give it a go. I was really impressed with the health check and the advice they gave. They took my age and fitness level into account when making my regime. I have been to other gyms by they were intimidating. Ladies of Leisure strikes a great balance and gives me all the support I need. So far I’ve lost nearly two stone!
I’ve been training at Ladies of Leisure for five years now. I originally joined to lose weight after having my son, and my mum trains here too. Since then, with the help of the staff, I’ve been able to complete two London Marathons The support from the club has really made training enjoyable. I’m now expecting my second baby, still training and feeling really good!
Ladies of Leisure is one of Canterbury’s best kept secrets. The facilities are top class, more than you would expect to find in some top London gyms, but at local prices. The team of staff are incredibly helpful and encouraging, whatever your objectives are. The club is made up of ladies of all ages, shapes and sizes from all walks of life. One big benefit for me personally is that I have made some fantastic new friends!
I first joined Ladies of Leisure after piling on the pounds in my first year at Uni. I didn’t have much confidence so the fact it was Ladies only was a huge bonus. As the weight has fallen off, I’ve lost 42 pounds so far, my confidence has grown and I feel great. All the staff helpful and really go the extra mile to ensure all your needs are met.
I came to ladies of Leisure as I wanted to increase my fitness and lose a little weight. I feel I have picked the perfect place and have not looked back. The staff are really friendly and look after you and the gym is never intimidating. Its the perfect environment for me, I’ve lost 22 pounds, feel much fitter, more toned and have more energy.
