Member of the Month: September 2020

It's Member of the Month time!

Let's show some Parkwood support for Gemma!

Here is her story in her own words:

"I first joined Parkwood in Autumn 2014; I needed to up my fitness for a ski season sabattical that I was doing in the new year (3 months in Canada - not too shabby!) Being a bit of a (fair-weather) cyclist, I started with spin classes but soon discovered that I really enjoyed other classes too, like Aqua and Pilates. I liked it all so much that I rejoined in 2015 and have been a member ever since, exercising my way through 2 pregnancies during that time.

Lockdown really demonstrated how important coming to Parkwood is to me - not only is it a way to stay fit and healthy, but as a mum of 2 young children, an hour at Parkwood might be the only bit of "me" time I get in a day. 

What I love the most about Parkwood are the people - the other members create an atmosphere in the classes, and the instructors and the staff are just amazing; always smiling, always helpful and always encouraging, and they have worked so hard to make it all possible under the current restrictions."
