Women on quest to improve lifestyles
Success of the first gym prompts PLC to open second in Toowoomba
CONFIDENCE in the Toowoomba area business scene has seen the opening of a second health and fitness centre.
The fitness centre kicked off in Pittsworth four years ago when then 17-year-old Nicole Steffens opened Ministry of Movement which has since become PLC Pittsworth.
Now 21, Ms Steffens has opened PLC Toowoomba in Clifford St under head coach Jess Fuhlbohm.
Simply through word of mouth and Facebook, the Toowoomba gym’s opening session attracted more than 100 participants.
“We had people from Toowoomba coming out to Pittsworth (to the gym) and they kept asking for a gym in Toowoomba,” Ms Fuhlbohm said.
“It’s all about helping people find a happier, healthier lifestyle and that’s something you have to constantly work at.
“It’s a lifestyle, not just a quick fix.”
A lot of the drive behind the two PLC health centres comes from Ms Steffens’ desire to improve the quality of people’s lives and for regional centres to be better served with such exercise
This (program) really is impacting on so many lives. — Jess Fuhlbohm
“PLC stands for Premium Lifestyle Club and it’s all about a change of lifestyle,” Ms Fuhlbohm said.
“Toowoomba has a high rate of obesity and nothing would satisfy me more than to be able to help other people improve their life.
“This (program) really is impacting on so many lives.”
