All my clients are an inspiration in their own way, but I have to admit this guy brought a big lump to my throat yesterday when he completed this run.
Personal Training for most is about losing weight, shaping & toning and strength training, which is great, but at GymHaugh, I’m not here exclusively for that and it’s definitely not about vanity and flexing muscles in front of a mirror.
I’m here for anyone who needs help and support to reach their goal, whatever that may be.
Adam’s goal was to run again – might not seem like much to some, but when you read his story below you’ll appreciate how huge it was for him – and he smashed it!
l couldn’t be more proud of Adam – he gives 100% every session despite battling something every day that has a major effect on his health. Adam is one reason why I love what I do.
This is my client’s story in his own words:~
“Less than 2 years ago, I had a brain infection due to the treatment I was getting for relapsing remitting MS (I’ve had MS for 10 years) which nearly took my life and left me unable to even stand up unaided, speak or see properly. I had a lot of rehab and physio to get back on my feet, then worked really hard to try and get as fit as I could.
I started training with Jim in August with the hope he could help me to run again which was a personal goal that I’ve been working towards for well over a year. I can’t thank Jim enough for helping me to achieve this and giving me the confidence and self belief I was missing while really building my strength and overall fitness. I’m even more motivated now to get better and better.”
