I found the online format, support and materials at OnFit very user friendly, informative and clear. I am really enjoying the practical element. I love being in the gym environment and have felt so blessed at the opportunities I have been given to spend 15 hours a week in my gym picking the brains of the trainers and speaking with gym members. I am actually off to Les Mills PUMP training in Sydney in about a week. So working towards having my Cert III completed is a priority to enable me to begin teaching. I am so hoping for a pass/pass to shadow on the day! That would be awesome!
I feel like I am literally pinching myself every day. I can’t believe that I joined the gym only at the end of February at 100.1kg and here I am now with a new life! I am 24 kgs lighter, fit, healthy, growing in strength and becoming more determined every day. I am so excited at the prospect and not only becoming the best I can be, but ultimately being able to encourage and motivate others to be their best also. I figure that if people see what I have been able to do in my situation: mum of eight and being about 100kg for the last 20 years, with no real training or exercise program all that time and I could turn my life around, that they will go “Boy, if she can do it……I sure can!!” That would be wonderfully rewarding.
Starting my Cert III/IV was an endeavour I initially started just to cement the changes in my life. To commit myself to never going back to what I was. But as I have progressed through this course I am developing a passion for all things fitness!! How awesome is the human body and all its capabilities and workings?! Our bodies are truly a gift to us and need extra special care!! I am glad it was not too late for me to turn over a new leaf!! A much greener and fresher one!!
I thank my OnFit tutor Sarah, again for all of her help and support and encouragement. I could not have done it without her. Just being able to talk out some of the questions made me feel like I was in a tutorial group! I look forward to staying in touch with the OnFit team during my Cert IV!
