Fighting Fit, Fighting Cancer

David -Butel 

Active member David Butel fights cancer. 

I have been a gym member on and off for years, however in 2013 after a diagnosis of Prostate Cancer, an operation and after treatment for secondary Cancer, by March 2014 my weight reached 16st 8lb, I knew I had to fight back.

I joined the Active Gym, found myself a personal trainer, Harry Zambon, I knew I would need help. During the next 9 months I got down to 13st 3lb, it was hard. I also did Spinning, Body Combat and my own work outs, attending the gym 6 days a week.

This journey has been like a therapy and I do not intend Cancer to control me, I control it.

The gym team at the Active Gym are amazing, they have been so supportive, and they are like a family.

Part of my get fitter campaign involves taking Wheatgrass and juicing every day.

I am now fitter then I have ever been in my life, it is thanks to the wonderful facilities and classes at the Active Gym, also my great personal trainer.

The journey continues, if I can do it so can you, get Active.

David is an inspirational character and was recently interviewed by CITV.  Read the full story - David's story: Fighting fit, and fighting cancer, online here
