How exercise can turn your life around
Samantha Jones tells us how Trafford Leisure has turned her life around by taking part in exercise. Samantha started swimming as she knew she had to act quick when she was diagnosed with high blood pressure...
“I was diagnosed with dangerously high blood pressure in April 2017. My doctor told me I was close to having a stroke or massive heart attack. I knew changes were needed and quickly.
My daughter suggested that I try swimming as I suffer with back pain and i didn’t really like the thought of going to the gym at the time. On my first visit to Partington Sports Village I just about managed to do 12 lengths in the pool.
Fast forward to today and I now do 60 lengths 3 times a week and I love it! I have much more energy and feel like I have have been given a new lease of life.
My blood pressure is now at normal levels and my doctor doesn’t need to see me for another 6 months as he is happy with my progress. I have lost weight which I also see as an added bonus to all the other health benefits.
I must give Lia Guite who works at Partington Sports Village a special mention, she has been so encouraging and supportive and I dont know if I would have done so well without her.”
