19/04/2016 13:06 Xcite Helps MS Sufferer Agnes Stay Active

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) sufferer Agnes Lagden was referred to Xcite to help her keep fit and improve her mobility.

Agnes said of her experience:

“I was diagnosed with MS 8 years ago and found I was no longer able to do the things I would normally do to keep fit.”

“I go to the gym because it keeps the parts of me that are still working, working. Safely. I can fall outside so I feel a lot safer going for a walk on a treadmill. I was referred to the West Lothian gym Xcite for a six week trial and have thoroughly enjoyed going there.”

08/04/2016 12:49 Ageing Well Fit Steps Customer Testimonial

Here's a beautifully handwritten note from one of our Ageing Well Fit Step class attendees.

 "This great class is one of the highlights of the week. It is geared towards older people who wish to learn dance moves, meet up with old friends and make new ones. Fun and laughter is definitely guaranteed!!

Giving credit where credit is due, to have such an inspirational, encouraging and fun-loving instructor like Avril is the icing on the cake!
The important thing is one always feels good after each class and that's what it's all about!"

30/03/2016 14:06 Xcite Helps Kids Make Healthy Lifestyle Choices and Get Going

Xcite Member Heather has been bringing her daughter Erin to Xcite’s Child Healthy Lifestyle and Get Going sessions for two years and is thankful for the help, education and support they have received. 8 year old Erin suffers from a chronic bowel disorder, which can cause weight gain and makes her feel self-conscious and reluctant to socialise with other children.

When Erin first came to Xcite, she was very shy and found it difficult to socialise. These sessions allowed Erin to be herself and helped her to do all the activities at her own pace while being encouraged to push harder where she can.

Xcite's Health Referral Coordinator, Tracy McAlpine commented:

“Get Going & Child Healthy Lifestyle are focused around helping families to make small lifestyle changes & having fun. Erin has always participated well in both groups, her activity levels have increased and she an understanding of making healthier options. It has been a pleasure to watch her confidence and self-esteem grow.”

Proud mum Heather says:

“I’ve watched Erin’s communication and social skills develop enormously at these clubs and also at school. The nutritional education from Xcite helps me guide Erin in making healthy food choices and the traffic light system helps keep her on track if she is choosing unhealthily. Erin’s mobility is limited, so she finds it difficult to find sports and clubs to meet her needs, but the child healthy lifestyle club suits her perfectly. I now have a very confident little girl who tries exceptionally hard to keep healthy”

Well done to Erin for her hard work and to her mum for helping her take steps in the right direction. Xcite is here to help everyone of all ages and abilities. Read more about our activities and facilities at westlothianleisure.com
