I’m Louise, a Dental Therapist from Colchester in Essex. I relocated to Middlesbrough in March 2019 and joined Ulysses in April 2019.
I have always been active since a child and a member of many gyms in my adult life, but never managed to maintain consistency anywhere. I had looked into functional fitness while back in Colchester but never had the confidence to join.
When I moved to Middlesbrough I thought it the perfect opportunity to give it a go and make new friends at the same time. Since joining Ulysses my confidence has improved, I have toned up, lost body fat and increased in strength and flexibility.
The foundations classes were very welcoming which gave me an opportunity to get to know other members and coaches while learning the basics of weightlifting and my levels of fitness.
I feel I have progressed a lot in the last year and can certainly see the benefits. The classes are friendly and fun, we all work hard, have a laugh and there is a close knit community.
There is always support wherever needed, but this has been especially important during lockdown. The gym has gone above and beyond supporting us with equipment, workouts, nutrition and mental health and well being. I would highly recommend Ulysses fitness and nutrition to anyone considering joining and I look forward to meeting you!
