Paul and Debbie are members at the Crewe Lifestyle Centre and have made amazing lifestyle changes not only to their bodies, but to their confidence too, they have shared their inspirational story with us! Debbie once wore size 20 clothes and now wears size 14/16 and Paul once wore a snug Extra Large and now wears a Loose Large after losing 2 stone since becoming members.
Initially Paul became a member on his own in April 2016 by enrolling onto one of our Health programmes. He enjoyed both his sessions with Kevin our Lifestyle Coach, and eventually partaking in our group fitness classes so much that he persuaded his wife Debbie to attend with him too. Debbie explained: ‘I wouldn’t go anywhere on my own before joining Crewe Lifestyle Centre. Going for my first appointment with Kevin was very nerve wracking. I can’t show my gratitude to Kevin enough now as my confidence has grown no end and I now attend both the gym and group fitness classes alone. I am motivated by my body visibly changing in shape and strength, my hip and back issues improving immensely and the increase in my energy levels too. Walking into the lifestyle centre puts a smile on my face and everything I do there makes me happy.’
One of Everybody Leisure’s Personal Trainers, Sam, has been observing Paul and Debbie’s journey’s both on the gym floor and now in her classes. She added: ‘Debbie and Paul have completely changed since I first met them! When Debbie first started, she would either be with Paul, Kevin or a friend. After a while I then saw her in the gym alone and I knew that Debbie had pushed herself out of her comfort zone and achieved something she never thought she would. Paul is now a regular at several of our group fitness classes across several of our centres. His attitude towards exercise has become so positive, it is great to see. As well as his shrinking waistline!’
