September – CLIENT OF THE MONTH – GEMMA!!
It was only a matter of short time before we gave Gemma the recognition of Client of the Month.
Gemma joined us back in April as part of our old Transformation programme and really shone from the start. Gemma will agree when i say it wasn’t the simplest start as she was suffering from dizziness in the first couple of weeks but with sheer determination and commitment to the programme she pulled through and started to excel.
Since then Gemma has been a committed and regular member of Ocean Fit and is a huge part of the team.
Great work Gemma, well earned!
Name: Gemma Hood
When did you Start and why?
April 2018. I wanted to lose weight and improve my fitness levels which were shocking after a very long break from running.
What do you enjoy the most over all about taking part?
I love the fact that no two sessions are the same and you never know what to expect, it keeps it interesting and always challenges you, even as you get fitter. The other members are great too, everyone wants to work hard and do their best. And Jasmine the Greyhound of course! Love her 💙
What made you choose Ocean Fit:
My neighbour and member Sarah was always singing Ocean Fit’s praises and she shared a Facebook post about the 4-week Transformation Challenge which sounded ideal as a kick-start. I don’t like gyms and have minimal spare time as I work full time and have a young son so it seemed ideal as it’s just round the corner with plenty of well-timed sessions to choose from. It seemed like a bargain for so many sessions too. Lots of positive reviews online sealed the deal!
What is your biggest achievement:
I think it is as basic as just turning up to as many sessions as I could week in week out and making training a necessity in my life….it really has changed me! Being Client of the Month is really humbling, I never thought I would get this far.
What is your favorite exercise or move & why?
I do quite like the Prowler even though it kills me! Pulling or pushing it’s all good 😊
What is your LEAST favourite exercise & why? Burpees!!!
They don’t get any easier but I think that’s the point. At least I can do more than 3 in a row now though which was all I could manage when I started!
Would you recommend us to a friend and why?
Absolutely. I always say the other members are just ‘normal’ people there to do the same thing as you, we all work to our own abilities and you are challenged in a positive way, rather than being beasted….it’s only half an hour/45 mins out of your day which makes such a difference. Aaron & Dan (and Jo) are great at mixing it up and you really feel they want you to get the most from each session.
Whats your favourite thing to cook?
Thai Green Curry as it’s easy and I like it spicy 😜. I do like knocking up a corned beef pie now and again as well 😊
What is your biggest achievement to date?
(Think I’ve answered this above? (You did sorry)) Surviving a 1 on 1 Fit Camp session with Aaron when no-one else turned up, on one of the hottest days of the year has to be up there too? Don’t think i’ve ever sweated so much 😅
Describe Ocean Fit in 1 sentence:
It really does transform you and your whole way of thinking about exercise and your body, it gives you confidence in yourself and improves your mental well-being massively. Who could ask for more than that?
Joining Ocean Fit was one of the best decisions I have made in a long time. I honestly never thought it would have such a positive impact on me and my life or that I would become the kind of person who enjoys training, rather than seeing it as something I had to do to lose weight. Even when I go off track with my eating (most weekends 😂) I always have my training sessions to keep me on track. I know now it’s a long game so no more crash diets or denying myself my favourite foods, which is a much better and happier place to be. Thank you 😊
Well Done Gemma – Truly deserved recognition.
As already mentioned it s pleasure to work with you, continue to push hard and reap the rewards that keep keep heading your way.
