Fiona - Stowmarket
Our Suffolk Ambassador Claire has had a positive impact on Fiona from Stowmarket. Read Fiona's story here:
Claire is my daughter. She encouraged me to go to the gym to improve my health. And through her illness I have seen her go to the gym to help herself. The This Girl Can Campaign has influenced me to do more physical activity as if it helps her then it means that exercise can benefit a whole range of physical and mental health problems. You have to realise that whatever your size, you shouldn't be put off because it's the start of improving yourself. Also if you feel down making yourself exercise boosts the serotonin in your brain and makes you feel better and more positive. Other females should get involved because it's good for your health and helps you feel more confident and cope with stress in your life. I have lost some weight, met some new people, have more energy and motivation and generally feel happier.
