I wasn’t comfortable in my body, running around after my three-year-old granddaughter and getting up and down from the floor when playing with her was difficult. I avoided family photos, so much it became a family joke. Knee arthritis made walking painful and I was taking medication for blood pressure and reflux. I had tried various diets, but none seemed to stick. With a lack of exercise due to my knee pain, it didn’t seem that exercise was for me, a gym did not seem to be an option for me at ‘my age’. I now realise I am not on my own and that a gym is for me. There are people to support and help every step of the way. I found that I actually enjoy weight training and I can do it!! Initially weight loss was my main goal but being more mobile and building muscle is a great feeling and a benefit for my long-term health. I can walk upstairs without pain and go for walks which I couldn’t do before, and I even appear in family photos! I no longer take any medication! My GP is so impressed.
