Everybody Member transforms her health and wellbeing after never setting foot in a gym  

Everybody Health & Leisure member, Tasha-Josephine, shares her fitness journey after being too anxious to set foot in a gym and a busy mum of seven children. Tasha took the small steps by visiting Crewe Lifestyle Centre and attending the Aquafit and Clubbercise classes, kick starting her health and wellbeing journey.

Tasha-Josephine, Everybody member shared:

“A huge shoutout to the Crewe Lifestyle Centre team. At the start of 2023 I’d never stepped foot in a gym in my life, as I’d always been too anxious and have a busy life being a mum of seven, with some of my children having additional needs. I weighed 199lb and was a size 18/20+, feeling miserable in myself. After a few difficult life events including a badly broken wrist, I started off attending the Aquafit and Clubbercise classes. As my wrist started to recover, I then moved onto weights and resistance training in the gym. I absolutely love working out and I’m starting to gain more confidence as time goes on.”

Aquafit is a full body Aerobics class but in the water. There are huge number of benefits to this class but to name a few include, it’s kind on your joints, works your whole body and is uniquely inclusive. Clubbercise is a fun, easy class to follow, consisting of dance routines using rave glow sticks to club anthems from the 90’s. Group fitness classes are a great way to jump into your fitness journey, providing a social aspect to being active along the way.

Tasha continued:

“I started to see progress from where I started, reaching 150lb in weight and fitting in a size 12/14. I feel stronger and healthier than I’ve ever felt, with a big thanks to the Crewe team and everyone at Everybody who has helped me reach this health and fitness goal. They made gym newbies like myself feel comfortable and welcome. Here’s to continuing my journey and getting stronger and looking after my overall health and wellbeing.”
