Success Stories

Hear how others have found get up and Go activities!

“Thank you so much for setting up this program. I am really enjoying rowing with Mike Gilbert and his team from The Langstone Cutters Rowing Club.

I have struggled to motivate myself to get fit, I have now found that spark of inspiration. Tomorrow the rowing club is entering 5 teams in the Great River Race on the Thames. My goal is to earn a seat in one of those boats in next year’s event. I may or may not succeed but I will be working hard to get in shape to contend for that seat.

Thank you, again to you for setting up the program and to Mike and his team for creating a great course that has so enthused me and the entire group.”

“It was a great walk with very knowledgeable presentations, and the photos are a super reminder.  Thank you all.  I will definitely be going back.”

“Everyone was so friendly, welcoming, enthusiastic and informative about the club that it has certainly inspired me to join up and I am sure there will be others from both the Get up and Go groups.

I have really enjoyed all the sessions and thought they were a great introduction to rowing and were well organised and inspiring and really appreciate the time and effort Mike and Kate put into them.”

“If it had not been for the Get up and Go initiative I would never had tried rowing so would never have found out how much I enjoy it and want to continue it.”

“As a participant it has inspired me to be more active and improve my fitness to make the most of opportunities”

“The standard of tuition was excellent and the passion of Mike Gilbert so completely drew us in.

Being relatively new to this area (two years) and being semi retired with a limited amount of free time on our hands, for the first time in our lives!!!, to be given this opportunity to do something healthy, outdoors and active was beyond our hopes and expectations.  

Thus we got physical and mental stimulation and we are now both joining the Langstone Cutters rowing club, as are several of those on the course with us.”
