I joined Be Strong 2 years ago and it’s genuinely the best thing I’ve ever done. I’ve gained weight over the past few years after treatment for cancer, being made redundant and having depression. It was time to think about myself and my health. I started c25k and shortly after
that Be Strong. I love the exercise and sense of community. I’ve lost over a stone and a half so far. I can’t speak highly enough of Rick and Rachel, they are amazing, brilliant motivators and really care about Be Strong members.
Since joining Be Strong I have not only lost weight and learned to eat healthy but also gained a good relationship with food! I lead a healthier lifestyle!! I never ever deprive myself, something I did for years on other weight loss programmes and groups. Rick, Rachel and other the
other members are extremely supportive and I have always enjoyed going to the groups. I have tried every weight loss and exercise group going but never found anything anywhere near as supportive or affordable! Although I have been going to the gym for years, I have honestly never felt as fit and healthy as I do now. I feel both mentally and physically stronger. The goals I set myself now are always realistic – I never give up as I have done before, because in the past I have always set unrealistic goals. The Be Strong discussions have played a huge part in this and have made losing weight easier and manageable. Rick and Rachel are truly inspirational and have not only changed my life, but changed my family’s life. They really are amazing! Thanks again for all your support and encouragement guys! Xx

Keeping it simple
I’ve been a member of Be Strong for quite some time now and even help out at group on a Wednesday, which is an absolute pleasure. Be Strong really is one big happy family, full of support, none judgmental people all there to support and help each other. Be Strong
keeps things simple, no fad diets, no starving yourself just Eat less and Move more and the results speak for themselves. Both Rick and Rachel are amazing, so passionate and dedicated to Be Strong, not only have they been there and got the T-shirt, they have a wealth of knowledge that’s invaluable. I now have a totally different outlook when it comes to food and I’m moving more than ever, with the help of Be Strong I’ve completed the Yorkshire 3 peaks and plan to do it again this June with my Be Strong buddy’s, so not only do you loose weight, get fitter you gain life long mates too 😘 Thanks Rick and Rachel
Inspiring people to change their lives
I joined Be Strong in July 2018 and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Rick and Rachel are inspirational, they have created a challenging but fun and supportive environment that empowers people to make pretty amazing life changes. I have lost weight and for
the first time in many years I have attained a healthy body mass index and I am happy with the way I look. I have taken up running and much to my surprise have found that I can do it and now regularly run for 5k and have also completed a 10k race, something I would never have considered possible before joining Be Strong. The Be Strong programme has allowed me to take control of my diet and weight by providing good sensible advice and setting realistic and achievable goals. There is no deliberate complication of the message as with other weight loss organisations, if you do what they say then the weight comes off. Simple. It is not just about weight though. Rick and Rachel are committed to helping people feel good about themselves and you only have to look at the faces of the people at the meetings to see that it is working.
