These activities largely concerned the facilities themselves and services offered within, the maintenance and presentation of those facilities, and of course all importantly the circa 3000 members that frequented these establishments at any one time.

These sites were often described by colleagues and members alike as having much more of a “family” feel to them, holding the underlying feeling that they were all part of a ‘One Big Team’ attitude & atmosphere there, simply a warm, welcoming third space that they were all drawn towards again and again. Incredibly vibrant, positive environments saw members enjoy their exercise delivery with a perpetual feeling of joy in the air, taking away the pain of exertion and replacing it with one of only sense of achievement together.
Prior to this, he had also performed a lot of manual labour roles in his younger years, as well as security work over those and many other years to follow, always hands-on with practical tasks, and first aid trained throughout.

She holds a BTEC National Diploma in ‘Early Years and Education’ and had worked as a Nursery Nurse within education following that achievement.

Since moving to Mallorca, where we currently reside, she has been working as a “Mother’s Help” supporting a family with a young child. Involved in this role are general household tasks to ensure the day to day running of the home whilst the family are here on the island.
