"Hi! Just wanted to say the Push2Fit at both Roadford and St Giles was fab this week, I started eating better a week ago as I'm on a mission now to get back in shape, but have lost 5lbs this week and inches all over, including an inch off my calves and thighs, which I attribute to the workouts you've had us doing!! Thank you!! Motivated and looking forward to Tuesday" - Mum in St Giles on the Heath.
