The Hunts Post has teamed up with Huntingdonshire District Council for a fitness drive: It's time to get Hunts healthy. Five of our readers are putting themselves through their paces at Impression Fitness Suites. Sarah Peak is the first of them.
"I TRY, but by six or seven o' clock I'm too tired to do anything else."
Keeping fit can be an eternal struggle, and finding the time to even get to the gym can be problematic.
Sarah Peak, who won six months membership at St Neots Impressions Fitness Suite in a Hunts Post competition, has been finding things difficult.
Given an induction four weeks ago, Sarah has been back to the gym several times since.
"They showed me how to use various bits of equipment and they gave me a programme to work through. If you want to alter it, do more or work harder, you can.
"They put it to me what they thought would be good for me, and it is."
When Sarah, 49, collected her prize in June, she said that her busy lifestyle might prevent her from taking regular exercise.
But she readily admits that "when I go, I feel better".
"I go when I can, and that's the way I always planned," she said. "I have it in my mind to go next week."
When at the gym, there is a wealth of experience and equipment.
Recently refurbished, the St Neots facilities have state-of-the-art equipment and all members have their own individual programmes and data which are stored on the machines.
While Sarah said she has always been "fairly healthy", the gym visits and the exercise regime was a good bonus.
