I was heading in the wrong direction, had lost any sense of purpose and had a chaotic lifestyle, mainly consisting of drinking and smoking too much. I found it difficult to follow things through and was drifting aimlessly.
Before AIR Sports Network I was unfit, had a negative state of mind and my body was in a bad way due to misusing drugs and alcohol. I also had big problems with authority.
”I’ve had great support from AIR, they introduced me to a healthier and more positive lifestyle through the support, encouragement and time they put into me, a big difference with AIR was that I believed they really cared about me and didn't just go through the motions.
AIR has helped me get fit, given me ambition and the motivation to view life differently and to achieve things for the first time in a long time. Since starting with AIR I've done volunteering, applied for a personal fitness trainer course and started a health and safety course at college, without them I wouldn't have achieved any of this. I’ve changed how I look at things, I recently got full time work, my first job in over 10 years. Eventually I’d like to become a personal trainer helping others with the same issues I had. 6 months ago this would never have been in my thoughts..
I totally recommend AIR, if you really want to change your life around and live a healthier lifestyle, surround yourself with people like the AIR guys, if you put everything into it you'll get a huge amount back. I’m glad I have AIR in my life now, it should be national and open to anyone who needs it… thanks AIR…”
