Please introduce yourself

My name is Melvin. I’m 48 and I enjoy family time, going out and about and training here at Elevate.

How long have you been training with us?

With Dan and Foxy for quite a long time, about 4 years in total with Foxy at the old place and now I’m training here with them., it’s been a fair old while.

What are your personal goals for coming to the gym?

The reason I come to Elevate is to keep fit and healthy. I find it’s good for the old mental health too.

Which class is your favoruite?

I enjoy the strong class because it suits me, I’m obviously not built for speed, but I quite like focusing on strength.

Could you give one piece of advice to someone wanting to achieve a similar goal to yours?

I think it’s good to keep coming, not only for your morale and mental health but to stay fit do some exercise also you can get some frustration out too! that’s why I do it.
