All along for the ride
THERE was weight loss, twerking, whooping and motivational words during LA Fit’s inaugural fiveweek Ride Challenge that finished on Saturday.
LA Fit directors Claire Chidgzey and Jaye Cuypers challenged members and visitors to complete at least 20 rhythm ride classes over five weeks and provided a weekly nutrition plan.
Challenger Alex Paioff said he had stuck to the nutrition plan and lost “so much weight”.
“I actually can’t believe how much weight I’ve lost,” he said.
Rhythm ride instructor Zac Gower said providing mental wellbeing during a class was just as important as challenging people physically.
“You can easily forget that you’re actually doing a really good job and that sometimes the simplest things like taking time out for yourself, breathing and smiling can actually have a huge effect on your mental health,” he said.
Ms Chidgzey said there was a great vibe around the studios in Subiaco and Highgate during the challenge because everyone was bursting with energy.
