Change for the better + awesome reader giveaway
Mum has recently posted a piece on motivation and where it comes from. It was a great article that received wonderfully positive feedback and for us, timely also.
Just over a week into 2014 and Mum and Daughter were contacted regarding a wonderful opportunity. An opportunity to offer our readers further inspiration. An opportunity that allows us to give awesomeness to you over the next few months.
With Mum and I having trained at Fitness First since its’ very first day of trading in Australia, it made complete sense to us to represent their new steps into the future. A new look. A new brand. A new direction.
I can tell you that standing in front of their newly refurbished Market Street Club in Sydney’s CBD watching acrobatic performers, hearing about as well as seeing their new vision and significant changes inside such an awesome new gym + meeting the sparkling Jane Fonda (their new ambassador) standing tall at age 76, I felt the change.
The launch also reminded me that we are all capable of finding what we love and can do to lead a healthier and better life. Forget the extreme and simply do.
It felt inspiring to see decades of the fitness industry represented, especially as for Mum and I, we have seen it all. Aerobics, the equipment-craze, bodybuilding, personal training, group classes and the rest…. My parents in fact owned their own gym in the early 1980’s in Sydney Eastern Suburbs and the gym has always felt like a home away from home for me. So familiar and magical, where change and challenge can occur constantly.
This week as we stood amongst Fitness royalty (AKA Ms Fonda) it impressed upon both of us exactly how passionate we feel about inspiring others to feel the love for fitness and wellbeing that we do. How our goals; and subsequent stumbling blocks can help you and your goals. For those who did not grow up in gyms and who perhaps find these spaces somewhat intimidating, wanting so much to show what is possible. Something that Jane herself mentioned really captured our attention, “it (fitness) builds confidence that helps you go further in life.”
Mum and Daughter could not agree more.
What also struck us was how the right gear and equipment can really inspire you to push your limits and build that momentum. A new pair of running shoes want to be used after all! Sometimes these items and the money to buy them can be an obstacle of its own or the confidence to try something new. We get it!
To enter is simple – comment below with what or who inspires you to lead a better life and why.
