Customer Stories

I first started using the leisure centre when I moved here a few years ago. It has become so much more than somewhere for me to exercise, it’s my social hub. The staff are so friendly and for a small town the facilities on offer are fantastic!

What a way to workout, so much fun!! The instructor is incredible and keeps us going through the whole class.  I come every week now just because I feel so awesome for hours after!

Which should I do first - CV or weights?

Can I lose weight from a specific area if I exercise to target it?

  This concept is called Spot Reduction and unfortunately, it doesn’t burn fat! When you lose weight, you are unable to choose the area in which the reduction will occur. Your body predetermines which fat stores it will use. The best example is doing sit-ups, yes this will strengthen your abs but will not take the fat off your stomach. Similarly, an act...

Will my muscle turn to fat if I stop training

  Its easy to thinkg all of the progress you've made will just turn to fat if you stop training ... But the good news is this is essentially muscle chemistry and is literally not possible!  Fat and muscle are two different types of tissue and cannot be converted from one to another. It's more due the fact that people who were once active and held a lot more...

Are saturated fats bad for me?

  It is easy to think that all fats are bad for you .... but are they?! The simple way to tell if a fat is saturated whether it is solid at room temperature.  Saturated fats have been given a really bad rap by science that is now out dated and incorrect. Modern science is showing us that saturated fats in moderation can have the following benefits: • Improv...

Do I need to train to failure?

Consistently training to failure places a high level of stress on the body.  It can damage tendons and ligaments which over time can lead to injury. Failure also places a large amount of pressure on the nervous ...
