‘Addiction’ has worked out well for Debbie

Happy "addict" Debbie Nelson celebrates her 2000th workout at Drysdale's Curves gym. 165076

At the age of 49, Debbie Nelson went along to Curves Gym at Drysdale to support a friend and quickly decided all that huffing and puffing just wasn’t for her.
Debbie went back the next day to join up and now nearly 10 years later, and eight kilos lighter, the 59 year old is happy to declare herself a very fit and very happy “addict“.
This addict has just clocked up her 2000th workout at the gym where she is now employed as an instructor and many of her fellow addicts turned out to support Debbie on her milestone achievement. And to make sure a sweet treat was waiting for Debbie at the end of her marathon 2000th workout, fellow gym junkie Cherie Duncan baked a cake in honour of the occasion.
“I just feel so good and you can do the whole workout here in 30 minutes,” Debbie said.
“I suffer from rheumatoid athritis and I know working out here has been a big factor in keeping me mobile over the years.
“I work out five or six days each week and it really sets me up for the whole day.”
Curves owner/manager Andrea Keating says Debbie is a great role model for all the gym’s patrons.
