Sue provided us with this testimonial to the sympathetic help she got from Lisa, one of our personal training and group fitness instruction stars. However, we think Sue qualifies as a legend and living leader for taking charge of her life and beating her physical difficulties. Well done to Sue and Lisa.
Lisa became my personal trainer in August 2016. I came to the gym with a raft of difficulties of a physical and psychological nature. I found Lisa very easy to talk to and I was quickly inspired by her enthusiasm to help me. Lisa has listened to my problems with a sympathetic ear and helped me plan realistic and achievable goals. I was introduced to the equipment in the gym in a way that quelled my fears and helped me feel confident that I wouldn't hurt myself. Lisa found me exercises that directly related to my physical difficulties and I always felt she was there supporting and assessing progress.
I had tried several gyms in the past, mostly lasting only a few sessions before I decided this was not for me. Now, four months later I am still happily working away and the gym holds no fears for me, thanks to Lisa. I am so enjoying the whole experience that I hope to continue for many years.
Lisa has also been my instructor in group classes in the hydro pool. I really enjoy these, finding her wonderful at explaining why as well as what we are doing. I like the way she quietly corrects me if I haven't got it right.
Communication with Lisa has always been great and she has been wonderfully flexible in arranging times to suit us both.
In every way I have found Lisa kind, empathetic and encouraging. I have also found her a very good role model. The progress I have made in just 4 months has been noticed by friends and family who have commented on how well I look. From heading to a wheelchair to a happy, fit 66 year old has been a fantastic accomplishment thanks to Lisa. i can really recommend Lisa as a lovely person and an excellent trainer.
