I Have Discovered That I Have True Grit, I Don’t Make Excuses Anymore, And I Love Giving Training My All.
I joined Step into Life in November 2015 and my main goal was to lose weight. In doing so, I'm proud of discovering that I have true grit, I don’t make excuses anymore, and I love giving training my all. Plus, I am so proud to be running six kilometers now without stopping – something I didn’t think would be possible when I started.
I have three children and find the best way to fit training in is to do the 6am sessions. This means I can exercise before my husband leaves for work each morning. I do get tempted to sleep in if my kids do, but I know it is so much more beneficial – to me and my kids – if I exercise. On the days that I train I have more energy to do things with them.
I used to always tell myself things like: ‘I don't have time’, or ‘it will be too hard’, and ‘I won't be able to do it’.
I told myself: ‘Just try it for one month and if you don’t start looking and feeling better, then quit’. Of course, I quickly started feeling the results. Plus, the trainers and members were all so supportive and encouraging that it was almost impossible not to enjoy it!
I would say to others to challenge yourself to try it out. Make that extra hour in your day by getting up earlier or whatever you need to do to make the time to train – because it’s worth it.
I train five times a week now. I enjoy cardiomax and toneup sessions, but I find the Saturday morning cardio group is my favourite session of the week because it’s normally a bit more of a ‘fun’ class and a great way to start to the weekend!
This year I want to ramp up my training and start using six kilogram weights!

The Process Wasn't A Diet Or A Fad - It Was A Whole Change Of My Mindset Toward Exercise And Diet.
I originally joined Step into Life to participate in some fitness activities with my wife. We contacted Dean Horner at Step into Life Buderim and went down for our first session, which was a cardiomax class. Over the years I have really enjoyed the huge variety of activities as well as the social aspect of training with Step into Life.
However, poor food choices impacted greatly on my initial progress – I was becoming fit for a man my size but just didn’t look it or feel it. At times I felt frustrated and as though I was wasting my time, however I enjoyed my training with Step into Life too much and kept on going back.
This year I got a little bit more serious and set myself a goal of losing 45 kg, which was one third of my body weight. I set myself this goal for my family, and to also prove to myself that I could actually do it. I set out upon my lofty goal in late January this year, and finally achieved it in mid-August. I am now 90 kg for the first time in a long time and I can even run 10 km in under 60 minutes!*
My Trainer Dean has been there to support me throughout the whole journey. Deep down, Dean knew that if I put my mind to it that I could achieve my dream. The process wasn’t a diet or a fad – it was a whole change of my mindset toward exercise and diet.

I Hit 40 And Decided To Join Step Into Life As It Was Time To Improve My Health And Fitness.
There was a strong family history of people not making it to 60. I recently had a full fitness assessment and my body metabolic range is 41. So I’ve added 15 years to my life expectancy.
