Three years ago, Marshall and Tina Chapman took the decision to make a change to their daily routine in a bid to get fitter together. They signed up to Mablethorpe’s Station Sports Centre – and have never looked back.
The couple, married since 1982 with five grown-up children, were certainly not unfit before that decision. Tina, a nurse, and Marshall, a businessman within the IT sector, would walk the dog and keep active.
“But there was no structure to our exercise, and we decided that this was something we wanted to do,” explained Marshall.
The pair now visit the centre up to four times a week – often getting up to go at around 7am.
“It sets you up for the day, there’s no doubt about that and all the team here are very friendly. It’s good fun and we both thoroughly enjoy it.
“As a couple too, we enjoy going together and will perhaps go for a coffee or shopping afterwards, it is certainly a social thing to do as well as keeping you fit,” added Marshall.
And as for his and Tina’s continued fitness levels: “Before I started my blood pressure was slightly high, and it has dropped by 30 points, so that speaks volumes and of course we both feel so much fitter and healthier. We love going and wouldn’t be without it,” he said.
