Legend Profile - Sue Goldie

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.
