Paisley Daily Express - - Get Set For First Round Of Brilliant Beer Festival -

One Lin­wood woman has been given 10 out of 10 for ef­fort, af­ter run­ning fit­ness classes for a decade.

Lesley Cochrane has been teach­ing Body At­tack, Body Pump and Body Com­bat for 10 years in the town.

Lesley, 42, said:“I can hardly be­lieve it’s been a decade since I took my first Body At­tack class, in the old Lin­wood Sports Cen­tre.

“We’ve had some great times at the classes over the years.

“I do all the ex­er­cises along with the class and it is such a hard phys­i­cal work­out.

“When I first started, I thought I wouldn’t last an­other 10 classes, never mind 10 years of them.”

Some of the women who at­tended Lesley’s very first ses­sion still train under her wing to this day.

Hazel Black, from Hous­ton, told the Ex­press: “Go­ing to Lesley’s classes has been re­ally en­joy­able and I’ve made some good friends there.

“It’s ex­er­cise and fun at the same time.”

Kam Bam­rah, also from Hous­ton, added:“We know we’ll al­ways get a good work­out with Lesley.

“I’ve been com­ing for such a long time be­cause I re­ally en­joy her classes.”

Ren­frew­shire Leisure chief ex­ec­u­tive, Joyce McKel­lar said: “Our aim is to make keep­ing fit as in­ter­est­ing and en­joy­able as pos­si­ble.

“With in­struc­tors like Lesley work­ing for us and the fact peo­ple have been com­ing to the classes for 10 years, shows that we’re do­ing ex­actly that.”
