We are thrilled to share the success story of one of our valued members, Derek, who has achieved incredible results through his dedication to his fitness journey at Cleveland Aquatic Centre in Cleveland, Queensland. Derek’s journey is a testament to the transformative power of exercise and a supportive community.
Since joining in June 2022, Derek has lost an impressive 12 kg, which has helped drop his insulin medication and reduced his cholesterol to half the dose. But more than just the physical changes, Derek has found a sense of belonging and camaraderie in the community of seniors who gather every morning to exercise and motivate each other. Kiosk Coordinator Leanne even organises monthly catch-ups with a BBQ and healthy breakfast to celebrate their friendship and support.
Derek has found Cleveland Aquatic Centre team members to be supportive and encouraging, with our Gym Manager providing him with advice on using machines safely and implementing fitness tips in his routine. Derek says, “I’m looking forward to continuing my exercise routine in the gym, losing more weight, and inspiring other community members to improve their overall health and wellbeing. I encourage others to come and try; it is truly life-changing!”
We are proud to have played a part in Derek’s journey and hope his story will inspire others to take charge of their overall health and wellbeing. At Belgravia Leisure, we are committed to creating a welcoming and supportive environment where everyone can achieve their goals and enjoy the benefits of an active lifestyle.
