John and Vivien Barber

John and Vivien joined Aspire in 2016 initially as a result of a physiotherapist referral for Vivien connected to a hip replacement. 

After trying Aqua blast, Pilates and using the gym their usage has settled down into a regular 3 times a week routine; swimming and exercising in the pool for 40 minutes, followed by breakfast at the Basilian café!

When asked what they like about coming to Aspire, John and Vivien said ''As mouldy oldies, regular swimming and exercises in the pool has provided us with noticeable well-being benefits. Apart from the physical exercise there is a friendly, non-exclusive, mutually-supportive community amongst the swimmers and staff at Aspire. The pool users come from different backgrounds with a wide range of fitness, abilities and physical conditions. the warm pool and the excellent coffee afterwards get us out of bed''. 

John and Vivien have often recommended Aspire to friends and family. 

Congratulations from us all at Aspire.
