A WHOLE NEW WORLD
THERE’S NO MORE SIDE-STEPPING EXERCISE WHEN YOU CAN STEP INTO A FITNESS ROUTINE THAT FITS YOUR LIFE
For virtually my entire life, I’ve had an incredible talent for finding the most colourful reasons to avoid exercise. The feeling fitness junkies spruik of being “on a high” after a workout is not a sensation I’ve had the privilege of experiencing. One thing that has been consistent with my regime, or lack thereof, is I seem to lose interest in whatever activity it is very quickly. As a rule, my intentions are good at the beginning. I’m enthusiastic, activewear is on point and I promise myself that I’ll commit this time. Cue the laughter. To my surprise and the astonishment of my husband and children, I’ve recently discovered the perfect fit for me and am happy to report that those days might be a thing of the past for good. The name of this game changer is World Fitness in Maroochydore. I’ve seriously never experienced a gym quite like it. Initially, I thought I’d go and do some of the regular group classes. I was instantly won over by the fact that they have such a wide range of activities, for all fitness styles and levels. I even tried Zumba for the first time the other day and it was so much fun. With the dim lighting and music pumping, I felt like a backup dancer at a Pink concert. Well a girl can dream, can’t I? The virtual step and pump classes are an absolute gem of an idea. If you’re anything like me, dealing with the challenges of juggling work, family and some time out for yourself, the flexibility of choosing to do a class in your own time is a gift that keeps on giving. I was fortunate enough to be given a complimentary health assessment and personal training session as well. It was extremely valuable for me to have some long overdue fitness therapy and explore the nitty gritty of what my goals were and why maybe in the past my commitment hadn’t lasted. My PT also provided instruction on how to use the equipment properly, emphasising the importance of posture in the training process. So, it’s fair to say that now I’m hooked. In the past, exercise was an activity I had to do to work off my love of fine food and wine but something’s shifted and I’m excited about scheduling regular gym days into my week. World Fitness offers something for everyone. It’s such an impressive space with lots on offer. There’s a cafe that serves yummy treats, a variety of protein shakes and that much-needed daily dose of strong coffee. The staff go out of their way to put you at ease and make you feel welcome. Go check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
