Keeping fit coupled with a healthy diet is certainly ensuring that best friends Pamela Wilson and Gloria Lightfoot are forever young.
You would not believe it when you look at this picture but Pamela, on the left, is 80-years-old, and Gloria is 74.
The pair firmly believe that their long-term memberships at Skegness Pool & Fitness Suite has taken years off them and continues to do so.
Gloria was first to join the centre in 2001 with Pamela following soon after – making them among the venue’s longest serving members.
And, as they set about their three-times a week morning workout, they had a message for other people: “It doesn’t matter what age you are, who you are and how you look and you don’t have to feel intimidated coming in here, everyone is lovely – the staff and the other people,” they enthused.
“We know how important it is to keep muscle mass as you get older and exercise with a healthy diet is vital in doing so. But we want everyone to know that coming here is not just about keeping fit, it is the social aspect too, we have a laugh and a joke with everyone here, in fact we never stop talking,” added Pamela and Gloria.
Meanwhile, while they also take care of their diets, their healthy lifestyles mean they can still enjoy the odd treats occasionally: “While Pamela enjoys a gin, I like a vodka – but we stay off the wine, there is too much sugar in it,” said Gloria.
