"It all began when I had to start using a walking stick for short distances due to arthritis.
"I decided that this cannot go on and so enrolled in Shapemaster. Since going I have made some amazing friends, socialised with them outside the gym, feel more confident in myself and, most importntly, I am enjoying it!!
"I can highly recommend this gym with the outstanding trainers, especially Carol, who has helped towards building my confidence up - the trainers make everyone feel equally important.
"Oh, and to finish, I now wear trousers which I wouldn't have dared to do before, and the walking stick sits in my car, just in case, and that's where it can stay!!"
