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

pro­grams.

“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.”
