Congratulations to Andy Hartley who is our February member of the month at Rochdale Leisure Centre

Andy joined Your Trust just before the start of the covid-19 pandemic so it was a little stop-start for him with centres closing and re-opening during lockdowns and restrictions, but that has not stopped him.

Andy was over 45 stone when he joined and now, with his hard work and determination, he’s down to 33 stone. Andy tells us that “it was a big thing for him to come to the centre to get started, but he now sees the staff at Rochdale Leisure Centre like a family. He feels safe at the centre and can’t thank the team enough for their dedicated support”.

He is now a keen gym, swim and sauna member doing a wide range of gym activities including strength, cardio and mobility and regularly swims half a mile, sometimes a mile, in the pool.

Andy tells us “Not only has my physical health benefitted, but the biggest benefit has been to my mental health”.

Well done Andy! A fantastic achievement, keep up the hard work!
