Mum and daughter partnership Layla Wells and Rita Thompson are losing weight and seeing health conditions improve – thanks to their regular visits to Horncastle’s Pool & Fitness Suite.
And they are delighted with their latest Aquacise instructor, George Stocks, who has recently joined the team in Horncastle.
“They are a great bunch to teach, and I would encourage anyone to come and join us,” said George.
Layla Wells, 36, has been a keen member of the venue for just over a year – after starting in the gym she then had the confidence to take to the pool.
“No-one judges you here, instead they offer a lot of support and encouragement, and you meet new people,” said Layla.
Keep her mood up was something that also inspired Layla to get out of the house and take part in more exercise.
“It is wonderful for putting you in a better mood and giving you something to focus on. I would tell anyone to give it a go, they won’t look back,” she added.
Mum Rita, 62, was encouraged to join up too: “I went to gym first, but much prefer the swimming – it has helped my arthritis a lot, along with my blood pressure. If it was a big place, I wouldn’t have had the confidence to try but it is a lovely atmosphere here,” she said.
