Meet Mike…

Mike Gill moved to the area of Skegness around five year ago and hasn’t left his premier leisure venue since. Mike, in his 50’s is a local retail worker and uses the gym to help his fitness levels as well as his mental health. As an avid gym goer he visits Skegness Pool & Fitness Suite around four-five times per week, making full use of his membership with Magna Vitae. Magna Vitae memberships offer an unlimited use of the swimming pool, fitness suite and exercise classes from as little as £26.00 per month.

Mike told us that he keeps active by participating in a vast number of different activities. “When I visit the venue I use the swimming pool, the gym and exercises classes including boogie bounce, clubbercise, aquacise, zumba and yoga.”

Mike’s favourite piece of TechnoGym equipment is the SkillMill. The Skillmill allows users to accelerate quickly from a walking pace to a jogging pace, to a full sprint without making any adjustments. A fantastic piece of equipment for Skegness, with Skegness Pool & Fitness Suite being the only venue local to offer such hi-tech equipment. “I’m here now taking part in a gym session, and shortly after this I will go on to boogie bounce and yoga. I love it.”

This morning Mike set himself a goal of swimming 180 lengths of the swimming pool within two and half hours, which is nearly equivalent to three miles. He reached 160 lengths in that time, still an amazing achievement. “By setting myself a goal it helps me forget if I’m having a bad day and helps turn that day into a positive one.” If you’re thinking about joining your local premier leisure venue, don’t hesitate, join today.

“I use to be worried about being the only male in the classes but I now feel comfortable with people and can have a bit of a laugh with them too.” This fitness enthusiast is an advocate of everything our venue offers – the “great staff”, the chance to meet new friends and the fantastic classes. The all-year round access is also praised by Mike. During his gym session, he enthused “It’s not just about the exercise it’s about the connection with people and remembering not to take yourself too seriously.”
