This is Steve, he’s been coming to the gym for the last 8months and in that time has achieved a massive 17kg weight loss and no longer has diabetes. Steve had type II diabetes but last week he was told by his doctor he no longer has the disease and would no longer need medication. At the age of 62 Steve thought he would be increasing his medication not decreasing!

Steve enjoys all cardio exercise, especially the rower, and has found swimming lessons have helped his aerobic fitness and overall well-being. He now has the confidence to enjoy outdoor water activities with all his friends and family.

His advice for other’s, ‘Starting exercise is the hardest part and needs the most motivation. Starting means consistency not just attending the gym once a month. When you have become regular this is when your journey will begin and everything will fall into place. Start at a light intensity to build a strong core foundation’.
