Robin Tillbrook completed a life-changing trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro, in February 2007, in aid of Macmillan and was one of only 8 out of 32 climbers to reach the summit and he had this to say to Paul Richardson of PWR Personal Training:
"Thank you for all your help during the months before I climbed Kilimanjaro. I have no doubt in my mind, whatsoever, that without the gym time I spent with you, I would not have made it to the summit. It would have been 7 out of 32!
Over the months you have, not only, prepared me physically, something I would never have done on my own, but you built up my mental strength, and that is what I needed most on the final summit night. So all those days when I have wanted to give up and tell you to **** off and you pushed me, that is what I feel got me there. I could never have imagined how tough it was, I had everyone telling me that I was training too hard and maybe I should take it easy for a while but I am glad we carried on.
THANK YOU Paul for everything, I really do mean it when I say that without you I would not have made it" Robin Tillbrook, Bamber Bridge, Preston Age 44
