November Member of the Month

Tue 6 Dec 2016

Congratulations to Donald Trentham - our Member of the Month for November!

Donald has been working very hard, and the staff at Derby Arena think he deserves recognition for his efforts. They had this to say:

"Before Donald started his fitness journey 18 months ago he was apprehensive about stepping foot into a gym and at the age of 60 he had never really done any regular exercise.  He was told by his doctor he would have to take medication for health conditions and has since turned his life and health around. This is through sheer determination  to change his diet and participate in exercise. He is now, along with his family, training  at Derby Arena 4 times per week. His health has improved rapidly and he is now clear of all medication, all due to the hard work and determination he’s shown to change his life.

At the age of 62 years old in November 2016 he took part in in his first fitness competition. He took home 6th place in the Welsh Indoor Rowing Competition. The staff at Derby Arena could not be more proud!

Well done Donald great achievement!"
