Are you ready to love the skin you’re in?
Are you Ready?
It doesn’t matter who you are, where your journey is up to or even if you’re just getting started. Everyone reaches a point in their lives where they wake up realise… OK I’m ready, let’s do this!
For some of us the place that happens is standing in front of a mirror. Many of us can’t help but look at our reflection and actually do some serious ‘reflecting’ on our life choices. Reflecting is a technique we can all use from time to time, in many aspects of our lives. Taking a moment to stop and consider “what do I really want” without letting the opinions of others come into play. This isn’t about anyone else’s opinion, it’s between you and the mirror. What do YOU really want? Are YOU ready to go and get it?
The fitness industry is notorious for presenting the same stereotypical images of how we ‘should be’ and guilting us into action with marketing that’s filled with images of those typically fit, ripped models, over promising with mostly unrealistic goals and then tying us up in lengthy contracts that keep us paying long after we’ve realised their tricks and lost all motivation.
Most of us have been there at one point or another and, for us at Whoosh, it’s remembering those times that is the key in reminding us of the vision and values that got us into fitness. We didn’t get into this to become body builders or models (not that there’s anything wrong with that), we got into this to become the best version of ourselves. We are real people that love fitness.
This past week we took some time out to do some soul searching. Our latest ‘sales campaign’ didn’t quite hit the mark, and we couldn’t immediately figure out why. Great pitch, great price. And then reality hit us (like a shit tonne of bricks in the face): we sounded just like every one of those other big fitness chains, where they promise the world to get you through the door, get you signed up, and then you just become another number. That’s not us, and it makes us feel sick just thinking about it.
We care about you and your feelings. We care about where you want to get to and we understand that there’s more going on in your life than fitness training. Everyone has a different focus and a different reason for working out.
We pride ourselves on being real. For those of you who have read our blogs in the past you’ll know that we’re real people who’ve struggled with our confidence as much as we’ve struggled with our weight. We’ve always been determined to create a place where ‘real people’ can enjoy working out as a group, with other people who want to have a laugh to get their day started right, or finish it by de-stressing after a long day at work.
At Whoosh, you get different sessions everyday and we welcome you into our community with open arms (those are metaphorical open arms —hugs are totally optional). We encourage you to bring friends and family along for the ride too, because training with someone else always helps with your motivation and when you’re helping others to have fun and to get fit that’s pretty cool too.
So, if you’re feeling ready to get your journey started or if you’re a bit bored with your current program and you’re wanting a change, here’s your chance! No pitch, no price offer, just come and try a FREE (absolutely no obligation, FREE) group fitness session. You’ll get to see why training outdoors is a super way to get fitter and feel great.
Are you ready? All you need to do is text the word READY and your name to 0427 150 223 and one of our awesomely real personal trainers will be in contact to organise everything and get you on your way. We can’t wait to help you with your journey!
The Whoosh Team 🙂
