Member of the Month January 2015

Member of the monthWe’ve started a new thing, here at Kirby’s Personal Training and Fitness Port Talbot.

Every month, a member of the month is selected from our clients based on what they’ve achieved or some milestone reached the month before, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be fitness based either!! It’s our way of making a bit of a fuss over our lovely clients, and rewarding them for the hard work they continue to put in to themselves.   So from here on in, during the first week of each month our Member of the Month for the month previous will be announced. So without further ado:


Meet Trudy Wilkins-Harris

Member of the Month for January 2015. 

Trudy really doesn’t like me taking photos of her! 😉


Trudy celebrated her birthday (I’ll let her tell what that is, if she wants) on Jan 26th, which she spent trekking in the Himalayas for 10 days in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care raising over £3000 and counting; you can still sponsor her here. Marie Curie Cancer Care provides high quality nursing, entirely free. They run nine Hospices across the UK offering free specialist care for patients and support for families. They also conduct palliative care research. Trudy stands in the cold for hours, in some fetching costumes, in an effort to raise as much as she can.

When not fund raising, or at work, Trudy lives on a farm with her family and a variety of animals including Alpacas. She is also an avid rambler and thinks nothing of popping on her walking boots and hiking 10 miles on a Sunday for fun. Trudy has also trekked around much of the UK, as well as treks in Iceland and Peru.

Trudy has lost 11inches in total since she’s been a client at Kirby’s and the gym room is always filled with laughter during our sessions. She is an absolute joy to be around, and her infectious giggle makes every session fun. I am honoured to be her Personal Trainer, and I am often in awe of the challenges she sets herself.

Well done, Trudy, a much deserved pamper is now yours, and I hope you hit the £4000 mark before your page closes at the end of the month. I couldn’t think of a more deserving inaugural member of the month.
