Becky

24 year old Becky has an active and busy life and works hard at keeping strong and healthy. In November 2016 she was awarded the Inspire Scholarship by her local gym, Gym & Tonic. The Inspire Scholarship gives free gym access to an inspirational member of the community. Becky impressed the team at Gym & Tonic with her sheer determination to work hard to achieve her fitness goals and awarded her a scholarship in recognition of her efforts.  

Using the gym helps with the Ataxic movements and helps keep her lungs working properly and general fitness and well-being, also because she is in a wheelchair full time it is important to strengthen her arms and legs.

Becky said "I was doing pay as you go at Gym & Tonic once a week with trainer Kate and we did a mixture of things including the bike, the arm bike, resistance machines and free weights. Kate has recently introduced me to Boxing which I love!!! Since joining the gym I have actually put on weight & I'm getting stronger which is great for me and something I need to retain!"
