Sheree: Hi, Christine, we've got you here today. Do you mind me asking how old you are?

Christine: I'll be 66 next week.

Sheree: Awesome stuff. And I'm believing that you've been saying that you feel great now, feel the healthiest you've felt for years?

I now have lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and the doctor said, “Whatever you’re doing, keep doing it.

Christine: I don't feel 66. But, yeah, I do. And if I have a few weeks off my diet plan, I feel slightly

Sheree: Yeah. So how long have you been coming to Spice Group Fitness Classes for?

Christine: Ever since you started, two years, just over two years.

Sheree: Yeah, so almost three years actually. We're coming up to three years in just customers.

Now, you've heard a few good reports after you've been to your doctor. Surely, after you came, actually, probably within six months to a year, you came back really excited about seeing your GP.

Christine: I was, yeah.

Christine: I do, I feel on top of the world.

Sheree: Good! And you...

Christine: And I'm sleeping better too.

Sheree: Sleeping better's always an awesome one because sleep can sometimes be hard. And I'm wondering what sort of class... I mean, how many times a week do you come?

Christine: I used to come every day except Wednesday.

Sheree: Okay, so what, about five times a week. Fantastic! And what would you say to somebody else out there, maybe the same age as you, just thinking, "I'm too old, I just can't do it and I also would like to have lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels"?

Christine: Go for it.

Christine: They do, yes. I've made some really good friendships since I've come.

Sheree: Well, you have, haven't you?

Christine: Yeah, and we go for coffee, and we do other things.

Sheree: And people you would never have met normally.

Christine: Not at all.

Christine: I hope so.

Sheree: Continuing to come, she'll even get better!
