WHEN Fran Hughes decided she wanted to embrace a healthier lifestyle, she looked to Viva Health Club. Viva Health Club is Eastbrooke Medical Centre’s new health and medical gym.
‘‘I had a weight problem and couldn’t wait to make an appointment to find out more information about Viva,’’ Ms Hughes said
‘‘After having my initial consultation with Viva’s club coordinator Michelle, I decided then and there to join. I also knew that Optimum Health Solutions would do an assessment on me and I would get invaluable help from a dietician as well — all these came together for me to start on my weight loss journey.’’
Ms Hughes said she would recommend Viva to anyone wanting to lose weight or get fit, particularly after surgery or a long illness. ‘‘Viva is unique as the members are like me, I don’t feel uncomfortable doing my workout, everyone is so friendly and the staff are fantastic,’’ she said. ‘‘The support network is great, for the other members are like me, it’s a wealth of information.
‘‘You are given a medical and health assessment, which was emotional but a very positive experience for me.
‘‘The dietician gave invaluable advice, then Viva implemented my exercise and health plan.
‘‘I am so happy knowing I have the support of Viva to reach my goal weight.’’
