Proof that fitness can happen at any age, and that it’s never too late to start!

Lyn’s Story

“For me it isn’t about losing weight but toning and getting fitter. No matter what size, weight or level of fitness, we all have issues one way or another.

I had a boyish figure, no waist or bust and I wasn’t fat, but people said, “You’re lucky, you’re slim.”

I joined Rural Space 7 years ago not long after they opened and it was the best thing I ever did. At 65 (last year) I retired from a very busy, responsible job and I worried about losing my mental agility which had been stimulated every day at work.

Now, after 15 months of retirement I am able to enjoy the variety of classes on offer that also provide me with the physical and mental agility I need and I feel so “alive” afterwards.

I cannot put into words the atmosphere that Vikki, Zoe, Fae, Liz and Marianna create, caring, enthusiastic, humorous and always coming up with new ideas for their classes! The genuine pleasure they have when a member starts to achieve their goals is amazing.

I am proud to be a member at Rural Space, I get to meet and mix with all ages, all shapes & sizes and all fitness levels.

Oh, and by the way, I now have a waist, dropped a dress size and feel fitter mentally and physically! I can join in with my five grandchildren, playing cricket on the beach; how fantastic to hear “well done Granny!”

Thank you to Rural Space – what a team!

You need to bottle it & patent it!”

Thank you Lyn, you are an amazing woman!
