Real People, Real Results: Mark's Story

Tuesday, 13th October 2020

We love to see what our members achieve and how they’re getting on. We created our Real People, Real Results blog series to share our members’ stories with you.

Mark Hyde has been a member of Pendle Leisure Trust since 2012 and with determination and help from our team, has achieved a lot in the years he’s been with us. Here’s Mark’s story…

When I joined Pendle Leisure Trust in 2012 – I was looking to bulk up and get fitter. Pendle Leisure Trust was the ideal choice for me because I work across the road from Pendle Wavelengths, so I can go straight after work. I live in Colne, so I can also go to Pendle Leisure Centre, as the pool is excellent for swimming and there is also a good gym. I can use two, three or four of Pendle Leisure Trust’s facilities for the price of one!

Danny Owens has been giving me one-to-one Personal Training sessions for the past twelve months – he’s the best!

He has given me good advice on how to train and dietary requirements to achieve my goals. He is very patient and he knows how hard to push you without over doing it.

Danny will always go that extra mile to help you - even out of the gym, as I have walked the Yorkshire Three Peaks with him. When Danny invited me to join him, I was doubtful about doing it, thinking it might be too big a challenge for me. But I thought I may not get the chance again and had to give it a go! And Danny was there to give me the encouragement to carry on when it became difficult. He did the same when he helped me to complete the Pendle Three Peaks as well.

He has helped me greatly to achieve my goals and I’m sure he will continue to do so, as I have more challenges planned...
