I have been going to the gym and training now for the past ten years and I believe that this has kept my fitness and strength at a higher level than would be normally expected of another person my age.

One of our favourite club members, Colleen, shares her fitness journey and shows us that age does not need to be a barrier to looking great and staying fit and healthy!

When I turned sixty I thought that it was time to give some serious consideration to exercising as I knew that weight bearing exercise helps ward off osteoporosis and I also wanted to stay fit.

It was all very new to me as I had never been in a gym before and I was very conscious of my age.  I shouldn’t have worried as I was immediately put at ease.

I began training with a personal trainer and one day said that I was enjoying the experience so much  that I would “be coming to the gym on a  walking frame” to which he promptly replied “if you keep coming you won’t need a walking frame”!  That really inspired me.

When Manly Beach Health Club opened two years ago I immediately joined and have been training with Adam twice a week ever since and am still thoroughly enjoying the experience.  He is very professional, knowledgeable and committed and continually varies my exercise programme which is great and the hour sessions are never boring.

I have been going to the gym and training now for the past ten years and I believe that this has kept my fitness and strength at a higher level than would be normally expected of another person my age.

I feel very fortunate to be a member of Manly Beach Health Club and it is my intention to continue my training there with Adam.
