I've never been a one for gyms, I've always found them intimidating. The Loft is totally different and unlike any other gym I've tried. Everyone is so friendly and supportive. The trainers are knowledgeable and want us all to succeed - whatever our individual goal. Be it to improve overall fitness, gain muscle or lose weight, there's something for everyone and all abilities. The Loft has become a major part of my weekly routine and, I never thought I'd hear myself saying it but, "I love the gym!

—First Steps Participant

At first the time of the programme suited my lifestyle but after talking with Jo I felt inspired and realised it was something I could achieve. I feel really great after my sessions and feel like I have had a good workout.
There is something different every session, even though I have some joint problems Jo alters to suit my needs which is great.

I feel so much more confident, I have lost weight and centimetres and I'm enjoying new foods.
