I was recommended to join stoke f.i.t by at least 3 people when trying to lose weight and get healthy. I was doing it alone with the help of slimming world and had reached a plateau in my journey. I came to the circuits for the first time and 1 of the members met me outside to help my nerves. Quite a few of the members said Read More…

I joined Stoke FIT with a friend. It was something she wanted to do and wanted a bit of moral support. If I’m being brutally honest, the plan was to go with her for 2 weeks, once she was settled in I was going to make my excuses and never return. Thankfully that plan never came together. From the first day I could see what a lovely group of people were there. There was absolutely no pressure and the expectation was ” you’ve turned up, whether you walk, jog, run or anything in between it’s fine”.  Read More…

At the beginning of 2012 I tipped the scales at the heaviest I had ever been. I had just joined the gym and wanted to get fitter and healthier for the sake of my kids, I didn’t want to be the dad you couldn’t run around the park  because I was out of breath easily. Despite this I lacked the motivation to go to the gym on my own and push myself. I lost some weight through eating a bit better but this alone was not going to help my fitness.

I have known Frank for long time, Read More…

This is Sami’s second testimonial, to read her first, please click here.

At the age of 14 I was diagnosed with depression, some say it’s hereditary, some say it’s a learned trait, either way there it was. Over the many years I have tried various things, happy pills, herbal remedies, ignoring it, allowing myself to some dark places (this wasn’t very nice at all) but now I think I have learned to manage it.

Certain times of year seem to be my triggers, season changes being a regular one to cause my mood dips but Christmas is my killer. Read More…

I have been running for around 5 years and got quite serious about it over the last couple of years. In June last year I suffered an injury and lost my way with training and work! I pushed myself again but had another set back. Frank, who I had done a bit of running with before, invited me to run with this group to boost my confidence. I can’t always run with the group due to work commitments, but what Stoke FIT has done for me is help me enjoy running again with some fantastic people. Frank and Gregg are so enthusiastic, knowledgeable and committed to this club – how could anyone not get motivated and enjoy running. It’s a real pleasure to be part of this wonderful club.

Before Stoke FIT I was running around a mile a time on my own a few times a month. I had no will power to get out and do it and if the weather was slightly bad that was it, no chance I would go out!

A friend and I started to hear about this group who had started running around forest park twice a week, so we decided to give it a go! How hard could it be. Well let me tell you it was really hard and we were only doing around 2 miles with a couple of breaks in between. However Read More…

I’ve only been with Stoke FIT since November 2012 and I cannot believe what they have helped me achieve! After my first run, 2.79 miles, i’m now running in excess of 9, after just a couple of months, the motivation is outstanding! The miles fly by and with a smile on my face

I really really like Stoke F.I.T because it’s more than a running club.  It’s somewhere I can make new friends, have an all round good time, and all  while being lead by 2 of the best people you could ask to be taught by. Read More…

Debbie Birks

I grew up wishing I could take part, wishing I was good enough, wishing I was fitter and healthier. Over the years I like most people had tried this diet and that diet paid hundreds out in gym memberships and promised myself that this Read More…
