Six volunteers from across County Kildare are taking on the ‘Change Your Life Challenge’, run by the Life: Health + Leisure gym at the Osprey Hotel, Naas, in association with the Leinster Leader.
Our six - Johnny Finn from Kildare town, Amy Masterson from Newbridge, Frank Martin from Naas, Lisa O’Donnell from Kildare town, Gerry O’Toole from Newbridge and Ann Wynne from Kildare town - are revamping their health, fitness and diet in time for the summer season.
But, unike some quick fix diets and programmes, the ‘Change Your Life Challenge’ hopes to have a real, life-long effect on our volunteers’ health.
You can get to know them, and keep up with their weekly diaries, in the Leinster Leader every Tuesday, and on the Leinster Leader and Life: Health + Leisure Facebook pages.
The Leader visited their group fitness session last Wednesday and chatted to a couple of them, plus coach Wayne Middleton, who is leading the programme, about how the first fortnight of the challenge has been going.
