Gemma | One Year On Simply Gym’s Transformation

“Since August 2021 I have lost 2 stone 5lbs from changing my diet, joining the gym and learning to run 🏃‍♀️. My husband has been telling me for years about the benefits of going to the gym, not just physically but mentally as well and I’ve always shrugged it off and said “sorry I’m not a gym person”. The last 2 years have been pretty tough, for everyone really, but I have found it tough and during lockdown I started to enjoy a few more drinks than usual and my eating habits became worse and worse. Obviously, this led to more weight gain and unhappiness and then something inside me just clicked. I decided to try the NHS C25k training (as when I first started this the gyms were still closed) and I joined a local running group and it gave me the fitness bug back. I graduated the C25k program last August and decided to join Simply Gym Bedford in October time starting with doing some classes and some free weights. Then in January I started to take it more seriously, taking part in spin classes, body pump and tone classes every week and also following an online program to help me learn how to use weights on the gym floor. I’m still not where I’d like to be – with about another stone to lose – but I’m so proud of how far I’ve come so far both mentally and physically.” – Gemma
