THREE seasoned smokers have thanked gym staff for putting them on the road to fitness and health after quitting the cigarettes.
The Sports Domes, in Seaton Carew, provided free membership and access to all its facilities to encourage Linda Lines, Donna Gofton, and Jenna Rutherford to kick the habit as part of the Stoptober campaign.
While Jenna has managed to quit smoking altogether, Linda and Donna have cut down significantly on the number of cigarettes they smoke – and all three have seen massive health benefits.
And all are feeling fitter after a month of healthy living and exercise classes at The Sports Domes’ fitness centre, off Tees Road, Seaton Carew.
Sebastian Radford, a personal trainer at The Sports Domes, said: “I’m delighted that we managed to get all three of our smokers to cut down if not quit altogether. It’s a massive step towards a healthier lifestyle. We monitored their health at the beginning of the campaign and all have shown improvements.”
