I’m Carol and I’m 51 years old. I’ve been coming for 11 to 12 years now. A long time, I think I should have a picture on the wall as a life member!
I can’t say enough about the gym really. It’s not only good physically but just mentally as well. If you come in feeling bad the boys inevitably pick you up, so it’s great. I chose to train here years ago, simply because I wanted a one on one basis trainer. By looking at an ad in the local paper I came across Renouf. I came here and the rest is history!
I’m so committed to weight training that my whole family train here now. My kids were only little when I started. Instead of them going off to a gym and just doing whatever they wanted to do, I was really worried that they might not learn the correct techniques and possibly hurt themselves, so they’re all here now. They’re all in their twenties and my husband trains here as well, so it’s a real family affair as well.
For me, it’s a ten out of ten every time. Chris and Adam are the best really. They hand pick their trainers so it wouldn’t matter who you train with, you know you’re really going to get great sessions. For service, you can’t beat it.
You come in here with whatever your concern is and the boys will look after you. To be honest the only person who is going to let you down is yourself because those boys won’t let you down. Like I said, if you come in here feeling really crappy they’ll pick you up. And you know you leave working out having a really good session. Absolutely I would recommend them.
The best thing you can do for yourself is to spend time on yourself. I know I live such a busy, hectic life and I’ve got employees who are less than half my age and I’m fitter and stronger than them. And especially as you get older, especially women that are 50 years old, the best thing you can do is spend some time in the gym lifting some weights with a great trainer. You can’t beat it. I highly recommend women of my age to do what I’m doing. And I hope I’m an inspiration to some of them!
I love coming at five o’clock in the morning. It’s just get down to business! There’s no mucking about because we’ve got to get out of here! It’s great. I love it.
