Be Inspired – Andrea Lewis-Coker
Over the coming months we’ll be learning more about some of our gym members. We’ll be discussing training patterns, looking at current regimes, finding out about their why and highlighting any special achievements.
First up is long standing member, Andrea Lewis-Coker.
Andrea, has been a member at Bolton arena for nearly 9 years. She trains almost every day, using the gym, instructor led and virtual classes, whilst also having 1 to 1 sessions with our gym instructors.
Andrea’s main intention when first joining the gym was to keep fit and get some down time for herself after work. However, over the last 12 months she has seen a real change in weight loss and her overall fitness has improved.
We asked Andrea what advice would she given to any of our members ” I’d advise members to complete a programme with one of the instructors. This helps you learn about your strengths & weaknesses, develop your individual goals and keep you focused. The 1:1 sessions with the instructors are also extremely beneficial, as they push you further than you would whilst training on your own. The flexibility and wide range of classes are also a fantastic plus point. With so many classes per week, it’s so easy to fit in a class, if you fancy something different to the gym.”
We recently introduced a number of challenges into the gym. Andrea excelled at one in particular, our rowing challenge last year. Not only did she win, Andrea discovered a new love. Winning our challenge, inspired her to compete further, joining an online team and coming second in her category over 2000m at the English Indoor Rowing Championships at the Manchester Velodrome in February. That’s not all Andrea has won, she has also won a number of USN products provided by us, for winning our Member Of The Month!
Thank you, Andrea for sharing your story and for being a fantastic gym member.
