Denise Caley recently joined Racquets Fitness Centre having decided it was time to make that change in lifestyle and get fit.
Half hour HiiT and other classes were forming part of her new fitness regime. A gym programme was designed by one of our gym instructors and Denise was happy.
Then one day last week whilst in the changing room Denise was invited to join in the ladies squash lesson by Sarah. Sarah has been playing squash for nearly 6 months now and encourages every lady she meets to start playing as it’s fun and great exercise.
Denise enjoyed the session and has now been to 2 more lessons.
Denise says : ’It certainly proved to be a mind clearing experience, hugely enjoyable, exhilarating and also confidence building which I wasn’t expecting.
I think that sense of achievement is down to teaching and a great warmth and welcoming spirit within the squash coaching team and all the staff and members at Racquets.
I felt that the lesson and, in fact, squash was not only physically exhilarating but the game itself may be a kind of rocket fuel for a healthy mind – somewhere you can leave worries and life on hold and be part of something else.’
Denise will be bringing her two children down to the Ladies Squash Festival this Sunday from 11am to 3pm. This is a great opportunity for any ladies to try out the game against other ladies – some who will have played before and some who have not. The children will be looked after by Emma of Creation Station with some craft activities or by Nix in the creche.
