BRAD’S STORY - 41YRS
“I was very nervous/anxious leading into my first training session, looking at the board didn’t reduce that tension at all. Adam was taking the session and no doubt took pity on me. I really struggled to complete 10 wall balls, squats etc. All of the activities were basically cut in half to help me survive. My 1st P.T. session with Steph, well, we won’t go there…… But I love training now, my daily routine involves the gym at 7.00 am and actually feel a bit lost if can’t make a session due to work, kids etc. I actually enjoy challenging and competing against myself which I thought was past me since retiring from cricket. All the members are easy to chat with and have made me feel really welcome, that definitely helps enjoy each session.”
WHAT MOTIVATES ME TO KEEP TURNING UP TO THE GYM:
Having seen some decent results since joining the gym in August last year, my motivation revolves mainly around continuing to improve my body shape, getting stronger and being comfortable looking in the mirror each day. My goal this year is pretty basic, just have a crack at being the best I can possibly be. Live with no excuses and do my best at whatever that might be, starting in the gym!!
WHAT ADVISE WOULD I GIVE SOMEONE WHO IS GOING TO START:
Find motivation from within, making that initial step to join is the hardest thing. The trainers are all fantastic, well most of the time :), they will push you to your limit and really understand where you are at. You definitely need to be patient but if you give yourself a chance, you will improve and it might not take as long as you think. Consistency is key, regular training and eating well will assist with results, both short and long term.
