Jon is our our Member of the Month for October!
I have been with the GHRC for just under 2 years now – I initially took over my daughter Rosie’s membership when she left home however my wife Libby and our friends Gareth, Ainsley and Lisa all left another gym to the GHRC more than 4 years ago.
I was still working in the City and when covid struck I began to work from home so it was pointless to drive into the city just for the gym each day! So I embraced the GHRC which has a great communal and welcoming feel. My favourite Cardio is definitely the Sprint Cycle with Bex – initially I didn’t know what to think of this woman ‘encouraging loudly’ (I’m being polite!)at you to do better – I thought my max power of 295 watts was pretty good – but I have now exceeded 1200 watts in most sprint classes now. Bex classes are with the same crowd most lessons – I am sure they all put their alarms on at 12.01am to book into the class as its always full. Shez, Sally and Tessa’s classes are also great to be in. A combination of Weights and Cardio each week is my routine and any help from Cass and the GHRC team is never far away and never a problem to be approached. The ‘choose your music’ is also great where I can bank up my Abba, INXS, Queen, Elton John, Billy Joel, U2 favourites all to the dismay of the younger crowd working out, however I think that most have their Air pods in and can’t hear great songs! Thanks for the honour and I am sure I will enjoy the delights from the Loaded Co Café.
