Alanna - Sudbury
Our Suffolk ambassador Lottie has had a positive impact on Alanna from Sudbury. Read Alanna's story here:
I met the Supporter through our mutual university course and being members of the CCCU Snow Sports Society. The TGC Suffolk Ambassador has inspired me through her dedication and commitment to a healthy lifestyle, her creative spark is shown through exciting yet healthy meals and work out planning to suit any time, budget or level of fitness. The TGC Campaign has influenced me to try more traditional 'male' work outs such as weight machines, to quash the notion girls can't be strong. Barriers I have faced have been my location as I live far from a gym, I have over came this by joining a gym near my work and the Suffolk ambassador has helped me to use my time before, after and during my lunch break at work to get the most out of my membership. Females should get more involved with sport/physical activity so that they can understand that their validation can be created internally by their strength and not purely for external sources like magazines that convict you of not being perfect unless you change X, Y and Z. The benefits I have taken from sport is the belief in myself that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to, I have made many friends through training and I have a deeper understanding of the connection between physical and mental health.
