It was apparent that Jonathan and his staff concentrate on not only getting the best results for you but also looking after you by teaching you how to do everything safely.

Just over a month ago I took out a membership at Dukes. I had for some time considered getting back into the gym but found that gyms in the area were either full of young lycra clad women taking up all the machines or musclebound men taking up the free weights area. For someone my age this really made it hard to enjoy time at the gym.

I noticed that Dukes had opened in the area so I attended the open day. I met Jonathon and straight away I could see that he was passionate about providing the right sort of environment for over 50s. Jonathon showed me around but I was sold when he explained to me that the HUR machines worked from your own personal card with a plan designed for you. This appealed to me as It was like having a personal trainer looking after you.

I joined straight away and Jonathon met me for a session to work out where I was at with my fitness and flexibility. Neither were very good. He worked out a plan for me which included a session on the HUR machines and also a plan that involved using free weights and exercise to help me gain fitness and lose weight. I was shown through both plans and it was apparent that Jonathon and his staff concentrate on not only getting the best results for you but also looking after you by teaching you how to do everything safely. Even when you are working out he is always taking an interest in your workout and suggesting things that help or make it safer for you.

In just five weeks I have noticed a big change in my level of fitness and my body shape which is very pleasing. I cannot wait to see what fitness level I can actually achieve with Johnathon’s help.

I cannot recommend Duke’s enough to anyone who is over 50 considering getting fitter. This gym is what has been missing for a long time for us. Jonathon and his staff are extremely professional, understanding and friendly. Another plus is meeting others who have a like interest. Thanks Duke’s.
