Feedback from clients
“I’m keeping the walking up and the weight is coming off slowly. I’m below fifteen stone for the first time in over twenty years which is encouraging”
Live Active client who attends walking group
“I am averaging 10,000 steps daily, I have lost 5kg and I feel my trousers are looser. I have had no back pain for months.”
Live Active client who walks with friends
“Have been getting back to the gym 3 times a week really enjoying it. I try to do 10 minutes on the bike, 10 on the cross trainer and then go round the weights… I’ve lost half a stone over the last 3 weeks so far so long may that continue!”
Live Active client who attends gym
“Following hospital treatment, I was referred to the Live Active team.
The service and the advisor have been excellent. A gym programme was devised for me that met my needs in terms of rehab and gradually increased the demands made on me as I became stronger.
The Live Active advisor also made going to the gym easy and not intimidating (important to a non gym attender previously) and ensured I felt comfortable and confident in the environment.
The service is fantastic and I have benefitted greatly and would strongly recommend it.”
