December Member of the Month

Mon 16 Jan 2017

Congratulations to Stephanie Wong - our Member of the Month for December! 

Stephanie is an inspiration when it comes to her gym habits, and the Arena staff think she deserves a shout out to motivate her and other people.

"Before Stephanie started her journey at Derby Arena Steph used our other council leisure centres, but never to the extent  she does now.  Steph comes to most Wattbike classes we run,  morning and evening so is often coming twice a day.  Although she mainly focuses on coming to our Wattbike sessions  she has been to a few circuit classes and her aim in the near future is to build up some strength within resistance training.

Steph spends a lot of time in the group cycle studio but within her first 12 months of training at Derby Arena she was inspired to join in some running races, within that year she completed a 5km, 3 x 10km and the Ramathon Half Marathon.   Steph  did a  limited amount of running when she was training for these events and 100% believes it was our Wattbike classes that helped her complete these events  she completed her first half marathon in 2 hours 20 minutes and ran the whole 13.1 miles. 

Great achievement, well done Steph!"
