MEL'S STORY - 40YRS
"I felt excited about my first but also realised that I wasn’t as fit as I first thought I was. Previously having trained with Mia on a one-on-one level at a previous gym this was a different ball game. I started training 3 times a week and it took 2 days just to recover from each session.
But now, I thrive on it. Training for me is a way to de-stress from my work day. Work can be quite stressful at times so for me going to the gym is part of my daily routine. At the end of the night when I am preparing for work the next day, I also pack my gym gear and put it in the car. Even if at times I’m feeling unmotivated by the end of the day because I’ve had a crappy day at work, I will still go to the gym and try my best. Without fail I always feel better for it at the end of the session."
WHAT MOTIVATES ME TO KEEP TURNING UP TO THE GYM:
"I love it. It is a part of me. I have been a member of Boss Gym since the doors opened in 2016. Boss Gym is like my second family. Mia, Adam, Steph and Darcy all greet you with smiles on their faces. The other gym members become your friends and I enjoy coming in and catching up with them before and after each session. I now train up to 5-6 times a week. My recovery time is a lot quicker and I am always continuing to challenge myself."
WHAT ADVISE WOULD I GIVE SOMEONE WHO IS GOING TO START:
"What are you waiting for? Give it a go. Boss Gym has opened up more opportunities to me over the last 2 years and has helped me find more meaning to life than simply becoming a workaholic. You make lifelong friends and you would struggle to find other more “traditional” gyms who genuinely care for your wellbeing.”
