Lindsay explains “My main reason for coming to the gym was due to me being on medication late last year that unfortunately made me gain weight which could not be helped. Prior to this I had never been overweight but on this occasion I put on more than a stone in weight and gone up a dress size which was incredibly upsetting for me.”

Lindsay decided with the support of her fiancé and family she wanted to get herself back on track and start going to the gym. “Let me add I had never been to the gym before this commenced!”

To start off with Lindsay decided to do a few gym sessions with her fiancé before completing her first class. “I took the plunge to try the Les Mills Grit Strength, Body Combat and Cardio classes training with the help from instructor Sam Lea” She continues “training 4 times a week from January and 10 months on I haven’t looked back!”

Lindsay has lost over a stone and a half, gone from a size 12 dress size back to size 10. Lindsay explains “I feel much better about myself and a lot more confident.”

“I enjoy coming to Holmes Chapel Everybody gym, I have gained friends and it’s great to find like minded people”

Clair Prior, Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor says “Throughout the months I have seen her transform, her confidence and fitness levels have grown, she is a dedicated member and deserves to be recognised for her massive achievement.”

Everybody Sport and Recreation would like to congratulate both Lindsay and Ben who got married on Sunday 20th November 2016.
