New start for gym ladies

Four local ladies are facing the new year with new enthusiasm after accepting a life-changing challenge from Forfar gym Results.

Over the last six weeks Rachel Ward, Sandra Whyte, Lesley Bell and Kelly Fyfe have undergone free personal training programmes with gym owner George Bertie and trainer Mark Cargill and have been thrilled with the outcome.

All of them set out to lose weight and increase their fitness levels with lifestyle, diet and exercise changes and all of them have been successful.

The winning entrant was Rachel, who lost an impressive 1.4kg and 46.75cm off her body mass index, although all of them have become converts and will be keeping up with their exercise and diet regimes, having already booked another eight-week block of classes in January.

Rachel said: “It’s been really good. I’ve lost a lot, I’m feeling more energetic than before and I’ve gained some good friends into the bargain. The biggest challenge was changing my diet, but the result has been mind-blowing.”

George praised all the ladies for their commitment to the course, which included thrice-weekly gym visits, and gave each of them a month’s free membership. Rachel also received a free cut and colour at Escape Hair and Beauty.
