Michelle's Shape Up Story
Posted: Wed, 19 Jun 2019 16:55
I joined the Shape Up programme in Wyre Forest having gained weight and suffering from high blood pressure.
Not only has the Shape Up programme allowed me to try new and different types of exercise in a friendly, non-judgemental environment, it has also taught me invaluable lessons in healthy eating.
Although I am still on my journey, as a Shape Up graduate, I have lost 3 stone, found new exercise classes that I really enjoy doing and have run my first ever 5K!
These are things that I never would have believed I could achieve 9 months ago before joining the Shape Up programme. Most importantly, I feel great and my blood pressure is back in to a healthy range.
The Shape Up programme and most importantly the staff whose support, humour and relatability have made a real difference, has given me the confidence in my own abilities and to try new things.
