Meet Ann, Horizon’s October Member of the Month. Ann has been a member here since March 2019 and has already made such huge progress in just a short amount of time.
Ann told us that before she joined Horizon she was looking at buying a wheelchair due to her health conditions, it was only when her neighbour told her about Horizon and the toning tables that she decided to make a change.
Arriving at the centre with her husband as she couldn’t think about even signing up on her own for the toning tables, Ann explained she felt extremely nervous and really embarrassed that people would wonder what she was doing at the Gym.
Fast forward 6 months and Ann tells us she is full of confidence and going from strength to strength each time she visits the centre. “I love going to the Gym and now feel excited to walk through the doors I don’t feel embarrassed even in front of the gorgeous people that come here. Coming here has much such a huge difference to my life, usually I would be at home in bed but now I’m here making friends that I also see outside of the Gym, as well as improving my mental and physical health, it’s just wonderful.”
Ann has ventured out from the toning tables onto the main gym equipment and says that people have even noticed that she is walking much better than she was before starting her journey with Horizon.
A huge well done to you Ann, for stepping completely out of your comfort zone and continuing to improve with each visit. We wish you all the best on your health & fitness journey with Horizon.
