What an amazing month and an awesome start to our official running season! Two fantastic events and some amazing achievements. Read on for the highlights...
I do not come from a sporty family. As a child, the only sport I did was at school. I wasn't very good at it. I was (and still am!) hopeless at field and ball sports. I therefore had to endure the constant humiliation of always being pretty much the last person who got picked for any team and frequently hid in the cloakroom toilets to avoid it altogether!
Pat heard about our classes through Wendy who has been training at Epping for a number of years. Pat called Kaz to ask if she would be able to join the classes once a week on a Monday morning at 6am. She wanted to lose weight and increase her fitness levels. She retired 3 years ago (she used to run a toy shop) and whilst she had been doing a lot of walking and some swimming and gardening, she felt she needed a bit more to keep her active.
In October 2007, almost 5 years ago, I received a call from a man named Chris Wilson. It was almost a year since I had started my business. He and his wife Paula were looking to improve their fitness levels and he had trawled the internet and somehow stumbled across my, then very basic, website. I impressed him apparently out of the hundreds of sites he had been viewing! I would come to learn when you caught Chris's attention, it meant something indeed. :o)
Sunni met Kaz at a 40th birthday party for a mutual friend back in 2009. She was training for a 100km walk in San Diego to help a friend raise funds for a charity. She wanted to learn to run at some point and she also wanted to start doing some personal training. She and Kaz met up to discuss her options and then they started training one-on-one together in December 2009.
I met Kaz about 5 years ago when my husband gave me a series of personal training sessions as a birthday present. I wasn't sure that I was going to like it and was cynical that I'd find a fitness coach that would suit me. My impression was that they were all very pushy and full of themselves.
Firstly, thank you to everyone who took the time to complete our group class survey. Whilst it was only a percentage of group class clients that provided us with feedback, the number of responses was sufficient enough to give us a true indication of what you are feeling about the business.
