really great way of exercising and having fun at the same time. This is a great class for meeting
people and great music with our wonderful instructor Hollie. We enjoy every class and would like to

I started going to Sophia's at the end of 2014 when I arrived in Arboleas. I had not been inside a gym for
over 30 years, so I was overweight and unfit. I was also suffering from breathing problems. My first day there
I was met by Paula who introduced me to Ovie who explained how everything worked. Ovie gave me a programme to
follow, and I must admit I was shattered, not because the programme was hard, it just showed how unfit I was!
I started coming to the gym twice a week with my wife but she sat knitting and drinking coffee while I tried to show
off to her by working hard and her saying are you all right?
I started attending 3 times per week, when in March my wife died so I thought I would never go to the gym again.
But with the support I received from Paula and her staff made me realise what I would be missing. I
returned at first just to get out the house but found I was enjoying myself as the staff and people at
the gym were so friendly. I keep referring to Paula's staff but they are not staff, they are friends
as most people that use the facilities will agree.
I consider myself lucky to have found a gym like Sophia's as it has that family feeling. No matter
how many times you attend you are made welcome as soon as you come through the doors.
All I can say to Paula is keep things going as they are as your all special people and I hope everyone
agrees with me.
