It can be easy for our fitness levels to drop off after we leave school, when we’re no longer forced into twice-weekly PE classes.
And that’s not to say it’s because you don’t enjoy exercise, but trying to find the time as well as the money to keep up your gym membership isn’t always feasible.
That’s exactly what happened to Bisi, 39, from London, who enjoyed athletics as a teen, but didn’t set foot in a gym after she left school.
Two years ago, age 37, she was persuaded by a personal trainer to join the gym near work and decided to give it a go.
She joined, started weight training, and months later became a face you may well have seen on the This Girl Can adverts in 2016.
