Member of the Month: October 2023

It's Member of the Month time!

One of our favourite things to do at Parkwood is celebrate YOU, our fabulous members!

This month, the award goes to Chloe!

Below are some words from Chloe:

"I started my yo-yo fitness journey 5 years ago, and got nowhere! I didn't have a plan and kinda just "winged it" and ended up gaining more than ever.

Fast forward to April 2023, something just clicked in my head and I found a passion for my health and fitness. I started to make time for the gym; I found someone on Instagram which I related to and this helped me keep focused and keep my goals in sight!

I want to be as strong as I can be. The gym is not only great for my health and fitness, but also my mental health. This has massively changed in such a positive and rewarding way.

I joined Parkwood in 2021 as I lived nearby. I only really used to use it for swimming and to attend my favourite class, FloatFit. I moved further away from Parkwood, so unfortunately decided to live due to the commute. I did use another gym for a while, but just didn't get on with it. I decided to come back to Parkwood last Christmas, because I love the people and the facilities so much!

I've found logging my food and workouts on my fitness Instagram has really helped to keep me motivated and accountable.

I've also set myself goals to hit within my journey. My next goal is to do one pull up unassisted by April 2024. I chose this date as it will have been a year since I fully committed to this lifestyle change."
