“I’ve always been a sporty and active person, at school I used to do everything from dancing and swimming to netball and hockey, but I’ve always struggled with keeping my motivation levels up. At uni I played netball, but throughout I could feel my fitness levels dwindling – moving from WD to GK so there was less running about.

Then after uni I went to the gym here and there, but wasn’t really too focused on my fitness for a few years. Last year I picked up running again and did a 10k. But then since moving to London I’ve been up and down with my fitness efforts, joining the gym and then cancelling my membership a few months later, and running very intermittently. But then lockdown came and I was beginning to feel quite lazy.

As soon as I saw my friend ask if anybody fancied joining him for a workout on our lunch breaks I thought yay this could be my chance to get motivated again. Since then I’ve been joining regularly and have definitely noticed my passion for fitness come back, and this has inspired me to get back into running and reach my PB distance. Thanks to everyone in the community for helping me bring the motivation and passion back, and for putting a smile on mine and everyone else’s faces during these very weird times.”
