‘Get up and go’ Shores boss

shares her journey

    Gina Hobbs  

THE boss of Withernsea’s Shores Centre wants the public to share her lifestyle challenge to become fitter and healthier. Its chief executive officer Jayne Nendick has volunteered to take part in a 12-week health and wellbeing journey for BBC Radio Humberside’s Get Up and Get Out campaign.

Over the next 12 weeks Jayne will be challenging herself to take on new activities, spurred on by a personal goal to lose weight. At the same time she hopes to inspire local residents to get out and find out what activities groups are offering locally.

“It’s going to be an interesting 12 weeks, I’m looking forward to it. I have no idea what I’m letting myself in for, this will take me completely out of my comfort zone,” said Jayne who goes to the gym but admits she is seeking a new wellbeing challenge. “About seven years ago I was 17 and a half stone and the weight has crept back on a bit, personally I would like to lose one and a half stone. It’s been a tough couple of years for me and now it’s time to shape myself up a bit. I feel I need to sort myself out and get my wellbeing back on track. This journey is to help others as well, to help others to begin their own journeys and find something they enjoy.

” Jayne has been paired up with a mentor, nutritional therapist Nicola Sainty, who will guide her, and Jayne will share her experiences on the airwaves. Part of the plan is to introduce new, small bite size beneficial habits that can be integrated into everyday life.

“I am very much looking forward to getting to know Jayne over the coming weeks and months. I will be taking into consideration ‘whole lifestyle’ as I work from a naturopathic perspective, encompassing the whole person. We will be putting into place an achievable, fun plan to help get her fitter and healthier around her busy schedule, starting off by looking at short, sharp bursts of exercise, tweaks to her current eating pattern and some healthier food swaps. Jayne has a great attitude and is a big personality so I am sure our time together will be full of laughter,” said Nicola.

Jayne added: “I hope my journey will not only help me, but help to promote the area and get people involved in new things. I’ll try different things, even things I’ve not tried before, I’m going to give it a go! I will get involved in different things in the community with local groups and find out what goes on.”

Her first new experience was a tap dancing class led by Lorraine Ruby, the founder of the Ruby Reds which takes place on Tuesday evenings at the Shores Centre.

Afterwards Jayne said: “I’m tapped out! It was absolutely fantastic, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The ladies were amazing, warm, and welcoming, it was such great fun. Lorraine and the ladies were supportive and inspiring in their own right. You felt as though you were part of something. I highly recommend it to anyone, and anyone who thinks they can’t do this – yes they can!”
