Here you can find out what our members have to say about us, as well as what we’ve been up to over the last few weeks.
“WOW, I could not believe it when I saw my name up in lights at the end of the Newsletter. That was really kind of you and gave me a much needed dose of encouragement to keep going …….. some naughty foods have been creeping in lately. My enthusiasm and commitment is in a large part down to all of you, who make me want to come to the gym and get results. Thank you for that, for your belief in me and your ongoing help – I WILL get there.” – from Septembers Member of the Month JS
“It’s my family and a place I feel that I can always reach my potential! In three words – Supportive, compassionate and persistent!” HR
“What a great bunch of smiley, happy people who love what they do and are very, very good at it!” LP
“Best Ever… never thought I’d set foot in a gym again. But you guys are amazing. It’s THE best running club EVER. I am now a runner!!! WTH? I’ve even said I want to do a 10k now. This would not have happened without COA and our Couch to 5k. # life changing” – SH
“Never been a morning person until I started going to COA. Now I look forward to my early morning gym workout. I’m always pushed & leave feeling great. Awesome staff!” EH
“Thank you COA. I get to the gym, I’m buzzed in by name and Richard calls me a superstar, I get to run without anyone leaving me behind, I get encouragement even when I feel I’ve let myself down by having to stop and walk for a bit, I get praise for running up the stairs when we get back and Lisa comes to check I’m ok with my stretches. I’m not sure you all realise how much all that means to those of us who were on the couch 4 weeks ago but trust me it is really really appreciated. I’ve never known a gym like it. Thank you. SR xxx”
COA Christmas Party
Our annual summer sports day took place at the weekend. Antics included Welly Wanging, Egg and Spoon Races, Tug o’ War and the Three Legged race. As you can see we had a great time!
Couch to 5k
Our Couch to 5k runners completed their 8 week program with a 5K fun run in Brighton! We all had a great day and everyone did brilliantly and came home with a nice shiny medal to start of their collections!
