Hear from those who have benefited from the scheme…..
‘I think I should let you know that I really enjoyed the programme in arena.
It was fun and helpful. I have gained knowledge nutrition wise while exercising.
The result is obvious -- I lost weight and size, also am more aware of healthy life style which is probably more beneficial in a long term.’
‘I would like to give Camberley Arena a huge thank you. I'll be really honest, when I got a message from Toby Lynch about joining, my first thought was it was too good to be true and my second thought was that I didn't know if I could be bother.
After long consideration I decided to do it and spoke to friends to get them involved.
Now I'm 12 weeks down the line I'm so pleased I have joined. I've lost weight, I've lost inches and made friends. I feel fitter than I ever have. The team have been so supportive and amazing. Thank you so much Lauren Lee, Tom and Ryan. As much as we had fun they certainly worked us hard and it's been fantastic.’
