Member of the Month: July 2021

Fitness can be more fun with friends!
Our Member of the Month award this month goes to two friends, Jane and Gillian who have, this year, been exercising together for 25 years!
Below is their story, in their own words:

"We first started swimming together every Wednesday evening in January 1996, at the now demolished College Street Swimming Pool. We would swim and talk at the same time; it didn't even take us long to build up to swimming a mile each week without even realising it!

We've since swam in successive places before eventually joining Parkwood in March 2010. We have been members ever since, enjoying not just the swimming and the gym, but the range of classes too, particularly Yoga!
We are both quite competitive and have kept each other motivated over the years. We still like to have a good natter and can often be found in the car park well after our class has finished!
Lockdown has made us realise how much we missed the social interaction and energy from being with other like-minded people - and how much we just love coming to Parkwood!"
