THE final Royston Fit 4 Life contestant has commenced her training after an injury had put her participation in doubt.

Anne Wrobbel injured her wrist after being selected for a free four month membership at Royston Leisure Centre.

But having been given the all clear, she is now on track for a healthier lifestyle, alongside fellow contestants Chris Fuller and Tracy Law.

Anne, of Owen Drive, Royston, said: "I've joined the scheme because I don't have motivation to get fit by myself, so I'm hoping this will help.

"I did some rowing when I was at University 12 years ago, but I'm not doing any exercise at the moment. I'm hoping to do two gym sessions a week," she said.

All three of the participants in the Fit 4 Life scheme, which is being run by the Leisure Centre in association with The Crow, have had training regimes devised by the centre's fitness experts.

Gemma Burge, fitness manager at Royston Leisure Centre, said: "Everyone's still very keen at this stage and they're doing very well.

"Tracy has a bit more time to dedicate to her training than Chris, but he's been in a few times and they're both on schedule.
