Meet The Member - Louise Zaprzala

About Louise

Having been a member of various gyms throughout her life and even working in a leisure centre as a teenager it’s fair to say that Louise has always had a keen interest in fitness. However it is more recently, since having children that Louise’s passion for fitness has really developed.

Following the birth of their second child, Louise and her husband D’Mitri moved to Thames Ditton to leave behind the hustle and bustle of Clapham. Louise and her family became members in 2015. For Louise, fitness is all about how it makes her feel and she described how the atmosphere at Colets makes it so easy to enjoy her exercise. She finds the club very friendly, sociable and welcoming – not only at reception but in every area of the club she uses. When thinking about how we compare to her previous clubs, Louise commented that she finds the gym particularly friendly with the gym staff being very approachable, helpful and knowledgeable. She also feels that the weights area is unintimidating for females - another positive, as she often uses this section of the gym.

How Louise Uses Colets

Louise regularly comes to Colets with her husband and three children and feels that there is a great balance of activities for all the family. With facilities including not only a crèche but also a packed & varied timetable for junior members, Louise and D’Mitri are able to exercise safe in the knowledge that the kids are having a great time too. Louise has regularly used both the crèche and soft-play areas and likes the positive, caring environment created by the staff. As her children have grown older they have also used the holiday camps and swimming lessons too.

Whilst Daisy, Harrison and Jasper are enjoying themselves, if not working out in the gym, Louise and D’Mitri can be found taking part in their favourite classes, Insanity, Functional Training and as the Summer approaches, Outdoor Bootcamps which are held on the club’s extensive grounds. Visits to Colets often end relaxing together in the café bar. She loves that there is so much on offer for her family all under one roof!
