Get Healthy and Happy - Adrian's Story

Adrian is a member at Ivybridge Leisure Centre after deciding to join following a conversation with a doctor, where he was advised to try and raise his fitness and improve his health. He also felt that as he was getting older, he was starting to put weight on which he wasn't comfortable with. 

Following an assessment carried out by a qualified member of staff, Adrian has been able to find the perfect routine that suits his ability and what he is aiming towards. He has also found the 'MyZone' heart monitor useful and effective in helping to raise his fitness levels. 

Since sticking to his routine, Adrian has found that exercise is an ideal way of relieving stress and benefits his mental and physical health. His favourite activities include attending 5 classes a week including Spin and Body Pump and describes the class instructors as 'top quality'.

Occasionally he will also have a session in the gym and swimming pool or bring his daughter along and have a game of Squash.
