“I’ll still be at this when I’m old and grey.”
"My name is Kaye Parker and I have been attending OneUp since September 2006, just weeks after they opened. That is nearly 9 years of weekly, and in the early days, twice-weekly, strength training sessions. I began while I owned a very busy training and coaching company. That meant a lot of travelling, usually carrying awkward suitcases full of heavy training materials; and spending a lot of time in a classroom, standing on my feet all day. I really felt I needed to be strong physically to continue the work that I loved. Since those early days, I've sold that business and repositioned (not retired) so I can work fewer days. But I still find I need to be physically strong to walk, to work in the garden, to shovel snow and chip ice, as I did in the winter of 2015, and to enjoy travelling for fun. In the last few years, I've had several falls that could have had serious consequences for me, had I not been fit. Instead, they were just minor hiccups in my life, but I attribute that good luck to my work at OneUp. I could NEVER do this type of training on my own. I don't have the self-discipline, the knowledge or the equipment to do this. Every OneUp trainer I've ever worked with has pushed me, praised me and sometimes pampered me. I need all three of these to keep at it. I agree with a colleague who also goes to OneUp, and I'll still be at this when I'm old and grey, because it works."
