"I saw a new gym opening up - Nexus. I was so pleased to see it was Katy, who I had met any years ago in another running club alongside her mum. So I instantly new it would be the place for me. And I was right. Katy is very funny, approachable and explanatory. She is such an easy person to like and has the ability to make you feel at ease, as does Sarah, who is also amazing. I have pretty much attended 2/3 classes a week since it's opened... I have become completely addicted to keeping fit and leave the classes on a high that lasts for days. The improvement has been amazing, not only on my body and fitness but my mental health and physical wellness. I can't recommend this gym enough. I have met new friendly, taken my own friends with me and will continue my new found love of Nexus. It's like one big family, full of familiar faces and new faces... and all super friendly."
"leave the classes on a high that lasts for days"
"Anyone who thinks that they cannot run need to try Introduction to Running! Don't get me wrong... it pushed me, and I felt like giving up, but the coaches are fantastic and so supportive and tailor the runs to build you up to running".
"the coaches are fantastic"
"A guaranteed good time with people who soon become friends".
"guaranteed good time"
"As someone who hadn't run for years and quite frankly fallen out of love with exercising at all, join Nexus beginners running classes was the best thing I could have done! The Nexus team have made me fall in love with running all over again and the days when I think 'I really don't want to go out' I still get up and get myself into gear because I don't want to miss out on an evening with the fabulous Nexus Runners!"
"made me fall in love with running all over again"
"Each session is always different, but it's always fun!! Who knew a fitness class could put a smile on your face!!"
"it's always fun!!"
"Nexus Fitness Studio! Absolutely brilliant! Excellent quality choice of classes! Always varied! Always challenging! Katy and the team are friendly and helpful! Just what Market Drayton needed! THANK YOU!"
"just what Market Drayton needed"
"I was so incredibly nervous about starting, it took everything in me to walk in the doors, but I can honestly say I haven't felt intimidated at all and Lucy is such a fantastic trainer with the patience of a saint! I broke my back from years ago and still have big issues with it. I have a dodgy knee and an arthritic hip but Lucy is aware of all of this and very discreetly adapts the exercises that I struggle with so I don't feel stupid! I highly recommend Nexus Fitness Studio! Just give it a try. You'll feel fantastic afterwards and I'll guarantee you'll want to go back! Thanks Ladies!"
"You'll feel fantastic afterwards"
"100% support, encouragement and zero judgement! Honestly, once you have made the first step and put your trait in Nexus Fitness, you won't regret it. you might also make some new friends along the way"
"support, encouragement and zero judgement"
"I didn't feel nervous at all and loved the atmosphere as soon as I set through the door. How can you not love Katy and Sarah? Funny, easy going and make the lessons super fun. I'm addicted"
"Highly recommend this fitness studio. Everyone is so welcoming and I always leave feeling better about myself. I have never had that 'awkward gym' feeling or felt I was any different to anyone else attending regardless of other people's fitness levels, here you are treated with respect and patience but also encouraged to keep pushing to do your best. A little gem of a place and I'm so pleased I found it"
"treated with respect and patience"
"This is what I've been looking for. I'm not an easy person to please when it comes to a gym. I like to rant, sweat & swear my way around a circuit & need a lot of variety thanks to a very short attention span. Team Nexus have managed to achieve that & what a lush setting. Fantastic range of equipment... really friendly team & no judgement about ability or experience. Highly recommend trying a class or two - you will not regret it. Your legs might, but they will thank you later"
"no judgement about ability or experience"
"Really enjoy going to the disco spin classes. Katy does an amazing job at making them fun and not feel like you're doing a boring workout! Great music choices and atmosphere too!!"
"great music choices and atmosphere"
"First time back exercising for some time, did circuits with Lucy this morning and I don’t mind admitting I was dreading it - I’m not as fit or slim as I used to be! I was welcomed and encouraged from the moment I walked through the doors! I have a few joint issues but Lucy was more than willing to adapt some of the exercises so I could still do it! If like me you are thinking about it but a bit worried or embarrassed, don’t be just do it! Thank you team Nexus"
"welcomed and encouraged"
"For someone who did not intend to take up running, as I always thought I was never a natural runner and only said yes to support a friend... I loved the Introduction to Running sessions. I was very nervous as I have never run before, however the relaxed, supported environment created by Katy and her run leaders and the friendly encouragement from fellow team members made each session an amazing achievement and I always came away feeling chuffed with my efforts".
"Before I started the Nexus Runners 8 week Introduction to Running Course, I doubted by ability to stick at it and run nonstop for 5km. Katy's great coaching mean the runs were always different and kept it interesting. Her encouragement along with the support of the group meant not only did I get to finish the 8 weeks but we ended up running 6.5km! I totally recommend Nexus as a supportive, welcoming and non judgmental group, where you have fun, make friends and achieve your fitness goals"
"supportive, welcoming and non judgemental"
"I have never considered myself a runner even though I have been running for many years! Since joining Nexus Runners, Katy and her team have helped me build confidence and I now run with my head held high and know that I am putting in my best efforts! The varied sessions and tips have been a great help with my posture and running style. I am now running at a pace that I am happy with! Thanks team".
"helped me build confidence"
"I have never ever run in my life before and at the age of 50+ within eight weeks Nexus Runners encouraged me and enabled me to run 4 miles, I still don't believe it myself! Great team and so supportive, thoroughly recommend!"
"great team and so supportive"
"8 weeks after joining [Nexus Runner's Introduction to Running Course] I did my first Park Run and can say I have never looked back! Today I did my first 10k. I couldn't/wouldn't have done it without the support of a great bunch of people and Katy for encouraging me"
"great bunch of people"
"I always wanted to join a running club but wasn't very confident. The instructors were very helpful and friendly and helped me progress from beginner to being able to run 4 miles in no time. It have given me confidence and even lead me to enter and complete a 10k"
"it has given me confidence"
"Nexus really is suitable for all... all ages, all abilities, all welcome as regular or pay as you go attenders. The booking system enables classes to be fitted around your own schedule".
"Nexus really is suitable for all"
"Been in Market Drayton for just over 6 years and been looking for a gym/ studio to join where I don't feel embarrassed or uncomfortable and intimidated. Nexus is just the place I have been looking for. Great coaches and lovely people to train with. I have found my happy place again. Thank you Nexus!!!!"
"I have found my happy place again"
"Nexus is exactly the kind of fitness studio I’ve been looking for! I love group exercise, and find it a much more enjoyable way to work out. I haven’t picked up any weights or sat on a spin bike for a long time, but all the coaches (and other members!) are so friendly and welcoming. The coaches obviously know their stuff, but make the workouts really accessible while still being challenging, so it doesn’t feel intimidating at all"
"so friendly and welcoming"
"If you do one thing in the new year, just go take a look, all it takes is that very first class and I'm pretty sure you'll be hooked! The at Nexus Fitness Studio are extremely good at looking after you no matter how nervous or stupid or unfit you feel, they've got you!"
"all it takes is that very first class"
"I didn't know any of the people in the group less than 12 months ago and now I have made such amazing friends and memories with the team. I really look forward to training each week with new challenges (although it may not seem like it with all the moaning I do!) Well worth every penny".
"made such amazing friends and memories"
"I haven't long joined the Introduction to Running course... and last night braved a spin class as well. I am a nervous person, no confidence, zero fitness. I've felt nothing but support and kindness from day one. Katy and Sarah are amazing support... and everyone in the groups have been so friendly and welcoming"
"I've felt nothing but support and kindness"
"I have always been desperate to have a healthier relationship with running and fitness but have never quite found my place. Nexus has completely changed my outlook on both of the above and I now look forward to exercising every week rather than dreading it. Such a lovely bunch of caring and encouraging coaches that really support you every step of the way - with a bit of hilarious banter thrown in along the way! Loving the new studio and the wide range of classes on offer. The atmosphere is a little addictive!"
"the atmosphere is a little addictive"
"I’ve always valued the importance of exercise for good physical and mental health but having three children in 5 years meant very little time for self care! Equally I’ve always struggled with motivation in the typical gym environment so before Nexus even opened I liked the concept of the studio and small group classes. I’ve been going to Nexus since it opened in August and can honestly say I love it; it doesn’t feel like a chore and I genuinely enjoy everything about it, the coaches, the members and my increased fitness from the classes. The range of classes and timetable across the week means I can easily fit around my different work and childcare commitments to always be able attend a class when I’m free. Everyone is so welcoming and supportive and I’ve never felt nervous or scared to try something new! I would recommend Nexus to anyone who wants to get back into exercising and to meet new people, it really is part of my life now"
"I genuinely enjoy everything about it"
"Love everything about Nexus, the coaches are brilliant, classes fun and challenging and the environment is inclusive for all. It's so good to have something different to the usual gym setting. Keep doing what you're doing!"
"the environment is inclusive for all"
