Palminder's Story


Palminder is an inspirational figure to all those who he sees in the gym when he visits twice a week, four hours a day. The smile on his face and pure determination to keep himself fit keeps everyone around him even more determined keep themselves just as fit. Palminder has Cerebral Palsy, but this doesn't stop him staying fit. During lockdown Palminder would go out with family to get the exercise he missed from the gym, walking with the aid of family members got him back to some form of fitness. He says that being active helped with his mental health and maintained his fitness too, particularly his balance and stability resulting in less falls. As soon as the gym reopened and it was safe to return, he went back to the gym twice a week.

Palminder's advice if you're thinking of getting more active:

His message and advice is to "just get out and do whatever you are able to do, no matter how little, as every little helps". No matter what you're faced with you can still do something no matter how big or small it may be.
