Louise

I now have a stretching routine that I also do at home. I am now noticeably more supple and energized, especially in the mornings.

We have been asking our gym users to tell us why they like coming to the gym and what they think of Ability Bow.

Louise, 26, has cerebral palsy and scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and was referred to Ability Bow to carry on exercising after physiotherapy treatment ended.

She says “My instructor, Simohamed, is extremely supportive and has helped me massively. I now have a stretching routine that I also do at home. I am now noticeably more supple and energized, especially in the mornings.”

My GP referred me to Ability Bow about a year ago because there weren’t enough physiotherapists in my area to carry on my treatment. Ability Bow staff are welcoming and the general feel of the gym is very laid back.

Simohamed adds “When Louise first came to Ability Bow she didn’t feel very confident in gyms, but that has really changed, she drops in regularly now and we review her programme about once every 6 weeks or so. Her body awareness has really improved and she’s recently ran 5k to raise money for charity. She has done really well and she’s always smiling”.
