Spennymoor Member Proves Age Is Just A Number!

08th December 2017

Jim Nutt has been a member at Spennymoor for a number of years now and has been using the gym regularly along with other exercise he has been doing. He is keen to encourage older people into exercise and feels that some people might be put off coming to the gym simply because of their perceptions of young fit members in Lycra and beefed up, testosterone fuelled body builders. Jim knows it is not like that at all and that all genders, body shapes and ages from 11 to 93 use the gym.

He got cancer in his mid fifties and as a result lost one of his lungs which spurred him into action. He started walking with a local group on a regular basis and to this day organises walking and rambling trips which fill up a 55 seater coach everytime he runs it.

When he is not doing that he comes to Lifestyle Fitness in Spennymoor and has never looked back.

We also think he has the best name of any regular gym user!
