Pascal joined Chanctonbury Leisure Centre towards the end of 2021, after a road crash left him with a fractured hip and damaged quadricep muscles.
When he left hospital after a two-week long stay, he was determined to walk
again without assistance from crutches. He began his recovery with physiotherapy, and moved to gym-based training as soon as he was able.
“It was not easy at first, as I would get tired very quickly, but I pushed through those boundaries to regain strength.”
It wasn’t long before he was exercising up to five times a week, and today he
is virtually free from all the complications his accident had caused.
When asked about how Chanctonbury Leisure Centre had helped him get back on his feet – figuratively AND literally – he had this to say:
“The Chanctonbury gym is a great asset to Storrington, and has been central to my recovery.
“The staff have been very encouraging, and I really appreciate their help and
support with my training. I would not have made this progress without them.”
Pascal’s journey is truly inspirational, and we’re very proud of him for what he’s achieved.
