Describe Active Souls in 3 words: “Absolutely FUCKING awesome!”

 

Meet Jacob, at 20 years old he is one of our youngest and craziest Active Souls. In the 5 months since his first game of British Bulldog, Jacob’s enthusiasm has only been matched by his remarkable transformation in to Viking warrior and today he gave us a bit of an insight in to his experiences as an incredible member of our Active Souls tribe.

 

"I’ve been going to Active Souls now for about 5 months I think. Before Active Souls my activity levels were moving from bed, to the couch and back again. I only moved if it involved getting food or reaching for the bloody remote so I was quite inactive I suppose.

 

When I first heard about AS I thought it was a cool idea because I enjoyed PE in primary school because it was just fun, it wasn’t proper sport like High School, but…I still seen it as sport so I initially decided not to go. Every part of me did want to take part and have a go because I knew I needed to get off my ass but the sloth in me just wouldn’t allow. Obviously, I finally managed to make a session and now I fuckin love AS, it is amazing fun and it’s the only time in forever that I’ve actually been excited to get some exercise.

 

Active Souls has deffo changed the way I think about keeping fit, I want to keep fit now! I want to be able to make it up a few flights of stairs without needing to take a break at the top. I still struggle to keep active outside of Active Souls because that side of things is boring + regimented. I will tell myself: okay let’s do a run today or do some sit ups but then I favour not doing it and going to bed instead.

 

So, in short, I want to be fit and AS is a good way for me to do so because I can have loads of fun doing it, I literally friggin enjoy everything about AS; I can take an hour of my day to wing balls at people, release a bit of pent up rage and stress all at the same time as me getting fitter. What’s not to love?"

 

It literally fills our hearts with so much pride and excitement when we read things like this from our little band of Active Souls. Jacob has been a rock steady member since joining and we love being able to provide that outlet for people to express themselves and get a sweat on at the same time!
