Step into Life Golden Grove pulled me out of a deep dark hole and I have never looked back.

 

10,000 points at Step into Life

The best decision of my life was made in November 2012. I was suffering from depression and was looking for an exercise program that would not only improve my health and fitness but was also in a positive environment. Step into Life Golden Grove ticked every box. From day 1 I was welcomed and supported by Kristi and the other amazing trainers. When I first started I was not fit or strong – I couldn’t run 50 metres but with the motivation and encouragement from the trainers and other members I started to achieve things I did not believe I could do. At the age of 55 I ran my first 12k City to Bay, I’ve completed military inspired obstacle courses, I can do full push ups easily and even held a plank for 7 minutes. What was most life changing for me was that Step into Life was there for me when I needed it. The emotional support I received from everyone was amazing. 

Step into Life Golden Grove pulled me out of a deep dark hole and I have never looked back.

There are many things that keep me motivated at Step into Life. I love the great variety of classes, the cardio, box kick, toning and Powerflex – I love that they are all always challenging but so much fun. Training outdoor in the fresh air is so nurturing for my body and soul, but I would have to say that apart from the great training the thing that keeps me motivated the most is the camaraderie and family type feel. At Step into Life Golden Grove we all care for and support each other in every way and I have made many truly wonderful friends that I will cherish forever. I am inspired every class by ordinary people achieving amazing results; it is so rewarding.

From the 50 point tee shirt up to the 10,000 I own and have worn every milestone tee shirt with great pride and honour and am so very proud and honoured to be recognised as a legend of Step into Life.

I need to say a sincere and huge thank you to Kristi, my head trainer, who has not only supported my health and fitness goals but who has helped me through some very challenging times both physically and emotionally over the journey. She has made me a fitter, stronger and happier me.
