Gemma is a member at Kingsmead Leisure Centre and has always been into fitness and exercise.
When she was diagnosed with a rare immune disorder Gemma found it extremely painful to move, however she found it more important than ever to maintain her strength and fitness and so would force herself to attend regular classes such a Spin and Body Combat - where she met her now husband Nick!
Gemma finds the motivation you get from the classes encouraging and always finds herself smiling and laughing throughout. It also helps that Gemma feels as though Kingsmead Leisure Centre is like her second home and loves to come in and just forget about everything for an hour.
