The fittest pensioners in Skegness

/ Leisure

SKEGNESS couple Trevor and Joan Scott could well be the fittest pensioners in town – after losing almost nine stone in weight between them!

Trevor, 80, took a step on the fitness trail in support of his wife Joan, 79, when she took the decision to lose weight. They were referred to Magna Vitae’s Skegness Pool & Fitness Suite by their GP and have never looked back.

“We usually come along here every morning, with a rest on Saturdays, and will usually swim too, with a further walk in the afternoon. The weight has come off as a result of healthier eating and coming here. This venue is for everyone.”

Joan’s weight had gone up to 18-stone and at the time she had been told she required an operation on her knee, which could not go-ahead until her BMI had gone down. She lost the weight, joined the gym – and did not need the operation after all.

“I am fitter than I was years ago,” she said.

Call in at your nearest Magna Vitae centre for further details and to enjoy a three-day free trial.
