WHAT A YEAR’S BEE-FIT GYM MEMBERSHIP CAN DO FOR YOU!
Bee-Fit is a friendly, supportive, effective gym that trains people of all shapes, sizes, goals, abilities and ages (from 15 – and our oldest member is currently 86). Our affordable personal training concept means that every time a member comes through the door, their session is directed by a qualified trainer who knows how to challenge them personally and how to work around any injuries or health issues. In this interview, we ask our gym member, Dawn, about her first year with Bee-Fit. Dawn is an awesome member of Bee-Fit – not just because we are proud of her fitness achievements and health improvements since joining us – but she always comes to the gym brimming with enthusiasm and ready to push herself. Here’s her story:

Bee-Fit: What benefits have you enjoyed since joining Bee-Fit
Dawn: When I started I used my asthma inhaler every session. After 6 weeks it stayed in my bag for just in case. My breathing has definitely improved
Bee-Fit: What would you say to anyone considering joining a gym or embarking on a fitness regime?
