Feelgood Factory member, Joyce Brown, celebrated her 90th Birthday with a surprise party from her gym friends.
Joyce has been a member of Pendle Leisure Trust for eighteen years, with ten of those spent at the Feelgood Factory at Pendle Leisure Centre in Colne. In fact, Joyce was one of the first Feelgood Factory members when the specialist gym opened ten years ago and still exercises there up to three times a week.
She celebrated her 90th birthday with her Feelgood Factory friends and Pendle Leisure Trust staff.
Her daughter brought a birthday cake, whilst Feelgood Factory members and staff decorated the fitness suite with banners and balloons and brought in gifts.
Feelgood Factory instructor, Barbara Standage, said: “Joyce was totally overwhelmed and emotional with her surprise, she didn’t realise she had so many friends here.
“A lot of the members have been attending the fitness suite for a number of years and become really good friends. The Feelgood Factory is not just about keeping fit, there’s a great social aspect to it as well which a lot of the members enjoy.”
The Feelgood Factory offers a range of power-assisted machines providing the right level of resistance for each client’s needs and capabilities.
The equipment has been designed for use by anyone, regardless of age, mobility or fitness level and is perfect for people recovering from a stroke or heart condition, those with multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, ME, arthritis or back pain, or anyone with limited mobility.
