Linda from Hyndburn started coming to Up and Active classes in Autumn 2016 following a health check with her GP. Her doctor advised her that she had high cholesterol and blood pressure and was borderline diabetic, but that she should try improving her diet and exercise before taking medication.
After contacting the Hyndburn team, Linda started using the gym three times a week and also attended a weight management course. Linda says. “I have completely turned my diet around, cut out sugar and fat and I now feel much healthier. I now feel I have a much healthier lifestyle and after some recent blood tests have now come back in the normal range, I am now not borderline diabetic after losing two stone in weight.“
Linda has high praise for the Up and Active team in Hyndburn and says, “ have met some nice people who are also on the course and hopefully we will continue to visit the gym and keep maintaining what we have achieved with the help of Hayley and Zuber. Once again I would like to thank them because without their support I don’t think I could have done it”.
I would certainly recommend the course to anyone who wants to improve their lifestyle.
