Meet Janet, a longstanding member of SCL who joined us 7 years ago. Janet shares her motivations and inspiring story with us.

‘At the time I joined SCL, I was caring for my Dad most days with little time for anything else and I was told I needed some time for myself, to focus on something that was for me.

So I signed up to SCL, mainly because my sister was already a member so I tagged along not really thinking it would last long. As it turned out, joining was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I stuck to it consistently, week in week out. With losing both my Mum & Dad during this time and still staying consistent, keeping a routine has definitely helped me through some of my darkest days.

If it wasn’t for Swinton & Pendlebury Leisure Centre instructors and members, I honestly don’t know where I’d be mentally. They certainly don’t realise how much they’ve helped me without even knowing it.

I’ve done most of the classes, all the instructors are great, they always push you a little further which bring a sense of satisfaction and achievement afterwards which makes you feel good.

Here’s to the future hopefully getting stronger and making some new PBs and making good friends along the way!

‘Sometimes we forget about our regular super fit members , as we often focus on the members who are new and on a weight loss journey and whilst they are all super and doing incredibly well, Janet is the most dedicated hard working individual I know. She turns up for every single class 6 days a week and gives 110% . She’s super strong and a fantastic person to have in your classes’
