Congratulations to Luke Field who has been taken on as a Gym Instructor in the Fitness Centre at YMCA North London.

Luke tells us what it means to him to be taken on as an employee, and says it was a long time coming and he’s glad he is here now: “a few months ago I wasn’t sure if I’d be here today, but you put the hard work in and it pays off”.

As to how Luke finds it working with our members. Luke comments, “I enjoy working with the gym members, they’re mostly very friendly and it’s always a nice atmosphere”.

Starting out as a gym member, Luke initially joined the gym to get in shape. As he says “I was a lot bigger then than I am now, and I wanted to get fitter and lose weight. Paul (Mynott, Fitness Centre Manager) offered me a volunteer role and took me on”. Some two and half years later, after qualifying as a Level 2 Gym Instructor, Luke is pleased to have been taken on as a paid employee.

Paul Mynott is pleased to have him join the team and adds, “it has been a pleasure to see how Luke has overcome the personal learning challenges he faces and developed to where he is today, making a valuable contribution at the gym”. He continues, “I don’t think you’d find anyone with more dedication or who enjoys his work more than Luke”.
