All along for the ride

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - Denise S. Cahill

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.­mu­ni­ d488104
