Donna Here “Loving Life”

I joined KA Leisure (Auchenharvie Leisure Centre) 5 years ago after my world was turned upside down due to my marriage split. I started off walking on the treadmill and rower and then I ventured into some weight training and took regular Elevate classes. It was from there that I felt stronger both mentally and psychically, in fact I would go as far to say I felt amazing!  I started climbing mountains, attending Eglinton parkrun regularly and now I’m training for my first Triathlon! The staff at KA Leisure have been fantastic! They’ve supported me throughout my journey, putting programs…

Step up at Auchenharvie

I am Bethany and I joined Girls Make Your Move just before Easter. When I first started I was shy towards people my own age, and found it hard to talk to new people . I have always loved sports.

About a year ago I stopped playing football and stopped working out and spent all my time on my iPad. I lost my passion for sport. Then Nikki came and introduced Girls Make Your Move. I instantly…

Join us – Ardrossan Ladies Rugby

Ardrossan Ladies Rugby Club are looking for new members, with a new summer programme coming up. Scrum-half Shelagh Milligan tells us about her rugby journey. In my head I’m still 25 but my metabolism doesn't think this. I am not an exercise junkie and never have been. My idea of a good workout was running from South Beach train station to the Lauriston to catch last orders, triumphantly wheezing into a glass of Sauvignon Blanc whilst phoning a taxi to take me the 10 minute walk home. I am not motivated in the slightest by exercise classes, running for fun is just,…
