"I thoroughly enjoy going to the gym and will continue for as long as I am able. I love it all, every single exercise I do, I enjoy doing. "

"Starting exercise is the hardest part and needs the most motivation. Starting means consistency not just attending the gym once a month. When you have become regular this is when your journey will begin and everything will fall into place "
