I first met Dick Orbell some 40 years ago when I joined the Manorbe gym which he co-owned. Just out of my teens, I wanted muscle and strength and to correct a congenitally weak shoulder, all of which I achieved under Dick's expert tuition, putting on 2 stone of muscle and greatly strengthening my shoulder.

Family and a growing, demanding business then took preference over exercising and I (to my shame) fell by the wayside. Some 20 years ago having become very unfit and overweight and aftery trying various gyms, home training and trainers, without success, I discovered that Dick was again doing Personal Training from his own private gym.

I contacted him and he agreed to take me on (on meeting him again, now in his sixties, I was amazed how fit he was and working out regularly). He looked at me, shook his head with a rueful smile and said "its lucky I like a challenge".

Once again I am now fit, able to walk upstairs without feeling I'm going to die and minus some 2 1/2 stones of excess fat and with my medical problems under control, and as Dick has no plans, as yet, to retire, I intend to be his client indefinitely as I know that whatever my aims and needs, and also should any further health problems arise, Dick, with his knowledge and years of experience, is more than capable of dealing with them.
