I was so nervous on joining

natlie_parkinI joined Club Zest in 2008 and have never looked back since, I was so nervous on joining up as I hadn’t done any exercise since leaving school 9 year ago apart from the odd walk and cheesy celebrity keep fit video. I really wanted to join a gym to help me get fitter and lose a bit weight. I tend to stick to the studio classes and the odd spin class, I feel more motivated working in a group environment and we do have a laugh whilst getting fit at the same time. Outside of Zest I enjoy going to see musicals at the theatre, socialising with friends over a vino…or ten. Doing exercise allows me to do this without feeling guilty. The staff at Zest are fantastic, you don’t just feel like another number here everyone is treat as an individual. Debra does a fantastic job of running the gym (even when she picks on me for cheating when I’m doing the plank – its my own fault!). I have made some great friends at Zest and will continue going here for a long time to come.
