AF NEWSLETTER                                                                      March – April 2012
So March has marched on and has been and gone without a word from me to you, unbelievably April is almost over too!!

Reasons being its been a little hectic to say the least, towards the end of February I moved from Osmosis health studio onto pastures new ( well in fact, old). I now train my gym based clients at Quality Living which is the leisure centre for the Quality hotel on the Hagley road. 

Which is the very place I had one of my first gym jobs, back in my early years at just 16yrs old I helped out on reception following my work experience placement at Curves and co. So although it’s my new work home it’s also familiar too, which is nice. As are the team there who have all made myself and my clients feel really welcome. It has great facilities and extremely competitive membership packages. It has a great gym, clean and spacious changing rooms, sauna and steam rooms a swimming pool and jacuzzi. More recently it has opened its second room within the hotel grounds which consists of free weights, cable cross over machine, benches and bags a great addition to the already great facilities at this venue.

If that wasn’t enough I am also right in the middle of moving house with my family, however as the story so often goes this is taking a lot longer than anticipated and expected so currently we are living out of boxes. Not much fun!

As always my clients are not failing to impress me with their efforts, Graham having lost 1.5inches from his waist having on average just 3 gym sessions per month with myself for 3months. A client who wishes to remain annonymous, as they are fairly well known. Has lost a very very impressive 27lbs, that’s 1lb off their target weight loss of 2 stone and a month earlier than expected, their goal was to have lost 1.5-2 stone by the end of May. This has been achieved with good nutrition and 6months of home based training with myself, I am very proud of this client. So to them & all of my clients old and new thank you all for the constant effort and enthusiasm.

However it is not all great news I bring regarding my clients, regrettably I have sad news to share with you. My client Colin who was fighting the battle with Cancer of the esophagus, sadly passed away  on Thursday the 22nd of March. It was unrelated to the cancer and was quite a shock for  not only his family and friends but also the medical staff who were expecting him back on the ward following a simple medical procedure and had long term care plans in place. 
Colin had become a friend and I was deeply saddened by this news. I visited Colin just a few wks ago he seemed really positive and chipper and wanting to arrange personal training sessions. Even though I only knew Colin for just under 12 months, I feel privileged that I was able to have spent time with him. He was a inspiration, a man of his age with terminal cancer he didnt just want to give in, he wanted to try his best to improve his fitness and strength. I’m sure those of you that have shared conversations with myself regarding Colin will join me in sending my love and thoughts to his family and friends at this sad time. May Colin now rest in peace. 

I have decided to take part in another event this year (as well as the half marathon) in Colins memory and the money I raise shall be donated to Cancer research. I shall include details of this event along with my sponsor page in my next newsletter. 

Lastly to help shed those extra Easter lbs I’m offering 14 sessions for the price of 10 til the end of May for new clients. 
Should you be an existing client as always if you recommend someone to me, after their 5th session you will receive a complimentary session. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have, or to book a free consultation and session. If you feel this maybe of interest to someone, please do forward it on.
Yours for good health
