Get outside and exercise to improve your outlook on life

Here’s another great story from one of our members we just had to share with you all.

I first read about LLGA on Facebook at about 3am one morning when I couldn’t sleep. I have trouble sleeping because I am a worrier. My husband Bob has had a brain disease for 4 years and is unable to work now so I also retired and am his full time carer. I needed to get him outside doing exercise to help stimulate his senses. Joining LLGA has helped Bob’s depression, and his outlook on life, he looks forward to going to his exercises every day and is now talking to more people and doing more things independently at home. I am also less stressed and am sleeping like a baby! Bob’s GP and Neurologist have both commented on how well Bob has looked in the past 3 months since we started.

We have both dropped a few kilos each since starting with Steve at Cronulla LLGA and have more energy to do more walks and outings together.

I have already recommended the camp at Cronulla to a few friends and family. Not only is it free which is a great attraction but the camps are great for all levels of fitness, young or older like us, you can push yourself hard or do the alternate exercise. I think we both just feel satisfied and proud of ourselves for getting out and doing exercise, especially as we both have health challenges. We are living life and getting active!

Thank you Bob & Vanda for sharing your story, and to Steve the trainer at the Cronulla camp.
