Tackling Snowdon made me climb my own fitness mountain
Losing weight can feel like you are at the bottom of the highest mountain and have no way of conquering the obstacle facing you. For Xercise4Less Rugby member Debs Knight, this was a literal realisation as it took for her to climb Mount Snowdon to realise she needed to begin her weight loss journey.
“I took part in a charity climb of Snowdon. I really struggled to complete it and had to keep stopping. People kept asking if I was alright as I was so out of breath.”
“I knew I had to do something to improve my fitness and general health.”
Improving fitness and health through Xercise4Less classes
Since taking on Snowdon, Debs has signed up to her local Xercise4Less gym and attended several classes to get herself on the right path and gradually begin to lose weight through fitness and exercise.
“The classes I go to are BODYCOMBAT, BODYPUMP, Boxercise, Pilates and Zumba.”
All these classes help towards improving your cardiovascular fitness as well as burning significant calories. The classes are a great way for you to interact with like-minded members, going through similar journeys to you, and most of all, are friendly and inclusive in your membership.
Looking and feeling better
Over the course of a typical week, Debs attends the gym on numerous occasions in her battle to lose her target weight of 5-7 stone. Training in the Ladies only zone, using the treadmill, Debs has already found herself having more energy and her general health improving. Debs also attributes the gym to some other physical and mental benefits.
“Going to the gym helps me to clear my head, and that is one of the reasons I keep coming back. Group exercise has also helped me to lose weight.“
Great work, Debs!
