10 Months of Transformation
A dearly loved gym member joined YMCA Gym in January 2023 and her incredible journey has inspired us all. When she signed up, Mary had health conditions that restricted her from achieving some of the basic life tasks and asked for our assistance in helping her have a better quality of life.
Over the past 10 months, Mary has not only shed over 3 stone in weight but has also gained significant muscle mass, transforming her body and her mindset. Mary’s dedication to her fitness journey has not only resulted in remarkable physical changes but has also had a profound impact on her mental well-being. She radiates confidence and positivity, and her newfound strength has empowered her to step out of her comfort zone. From trying new classes to taking on new fitness challenges, Mary’s transformation has been nothing short of awe-inspiring.
What’s truly remarkable about Mary is her ability to uplift and motivate those around her. She has become a beacon of encouragement, spurring on other gym members to push their limits and achieve their goals. Her unwavering support and infectious enthusiasm have created a ripple effect within our gym community, inspiring others to embrace their own fitness journeys with determination and joy.
Mary’s journey is a testament to the incredible transformations that can occur when dedication, perseverance, and a supportive community come together. She embodies the spirit of YMCA Gym, and we are immensely proud to have her as part of our fitness family. Here’s to many more milestones and victories on our members’ fitness journeys!
At YMCA North Tyneside we pride ourselves on being a community who support each other, no matter a person’s background or situation.
Encouraging people to be themselves often leads to remarkable things. This story of one of our members proves that to be very true indeed.
As the New Year approaches, new January starters will come flooding through our gym doors. For some, it will be their first time stepping foot in a gym, for others it won’t be their first time restarting their fitness journey. Whatever their situation may be, it’s especially important to be kind, have empathy and welcome the new members into our gym community with encouraging smiles.
YMCA is now offering a new membership for those who like the flexibility of sweating it out at home.
As of 29th March 2021, outdoor exercise is permitted as part of the Governments Road map out of lockdown. With this in mind, YMCA Gym has launched a number of fun and engaging outdoor classes in North Shields.
During the pandemic we’ve all been advised to stay indoors and this has had a huge impact on our mental and physical health. With the support of the YMCA Gym team, we’re encouraging people to get involved with Workout to Help Out and get motivated again to help fight the risks of Covid-19.
