SUCCESS STORY

Meet Sheila

Sheila, one of our longest serving members pitches up 3 times per week and gives it 110% every time!  It’s an absolute pleasure to be putting Sheila through her paces each week and we thank you Sheila for your continued Burn It support! 

"I don’t have to motivate myself-it’s the people and the trainers that give you that motivation to do your best, no matter your level of ability or fitness."

I started at Burn It in late 2014. I heard about through my friend Charlotte and she was singing its praises. 

As I live in Edinburgh I started going to classes at the Meadows and Inverleith.  However, when these classes stopped, I have become a faithful member in West Lothian ever since. I have been running since I was 13-which wasn’t yesterday! I have always considered myself to be fit and competed in track and cross-country races firstly for Dundee Hawkhill Harriers and then for Edinburgh Southern Harriers.

However, after my first Burn It session with Paul I felt as if I had been run over by a bus!! A bit similar to how I felt after Super Burn It in September. I realised then that although I could run, my core fitness probably wasn’t as good as I thought. I try and come along to Burn It classes three times a week, no matter what the weather is like.

I don’t have to motivate myself-it’s the people and the trainers that give you that motivation to do your best, no matter your level of ability or fitness. One of the best experiences I have had since joining is going to the fitness weekends at Portavadie. I have been for the past three years and am looking forward to this October. One of my absolute highlights from my first trip to Portavadie was a quote from fellow Burn It member Brian to Burn It member Lesley, after us running about all day… ’Your hair looks like it’s been combed with a toffee apple’ Brilliant!

I would highly recommend Burn It and I would never go back to a gym. Despite being one of the oldest members, I have really improved my fitness. It’s great for your mental wellbeing and the camaraderie is fantastic.
