Getting Active together - Halo Helps!
Over the next few weeks we will be taking you through the inspirational stories of some of our amazing members. Including stories of weight loss, radical life changes and just plain old getting active again...
Ellie and her mum Leanne train at Ross Swimming Pool multiple times per week using classes and the gym to get active together and keep each other motivated.
“I know young girls fall out of love with exercise when they hit their teen years. My daughter Ellie left behind dancing and trampolining at primary school and didn’t enjoy the team sports at secondary. She also had less time for out of school clubs with all the homework she gets. But I can see, too, that screen time can, too easily, replace swimming and sports for growing children, and I wanted to make sure the balance was right for Ellie.
“Halo offers some great membership deals for young people, so we signed up and started going to some group exercise classes together and, with the support of Halo staff, I introduced her to the gym. She loves it, especially when we’re both running on the treadmill, side by side. I’ve not only planted the seed that this is something you should never grow out of, I am getting to spend time with her and when we share a cup cake or fish and chips at the weekend we both feel we’ve really earned them.
Now Ellie often pops into Halo on her way home from school as well as coming along with me, and some of my friends are talking about bringing their daughters to classes too!”
