Introducing Karen Martin, a true star!

Karen originally joined the gym in 2008 with a weight loss and fitness goal.  During this time she has lost over 30kg and says that she loves coming to the gym as it keeps her healthy and she loves feeling fit.

Karen swam in the Special Olympics for 25 years, only just recently retiring.  She won numerous medals over the years swimming competitively. 

Tae Kwon Do is her sport of choice, currently yellow belt and going for her green stripe belt this year.  Her other passions are Kapa Haka and literacy.

You’ll find Karen and her Dad Bruce exercising together in the mornings each week.  She hardly ever misses her sessions at Bay City Gym as she said it’s the friendly staff that keep her coming back every single week.
