Member Testimonials - Angela Story

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!
