I've always been nervous about attending group training sessions because I'm self conscious and worried that my fitness level might bring the group down :( but I was sick going to a normal gym and not knowing what to do to keep the weight off so I purchased a group training coupon for Enliven Fitness online and after my first few sessions, I was hooked! On my first day I felt really comfortable, the trainer showed us different exercises and variations of the exercises depending on your fitness level and they answered all my questions.
The environment was very supportive and it felt like we were a group of friends exercising together and its so motivational when you see your group members improve and change in appearance over a short period of time.
Every day was a different routine which was focused on different fitness areas (e.g Cardio Day, Endurance Day, Strength Day) so you never get bored of the exercises. In the center they also have shower facilities and a kitchen area where your trainer can make you a smoothie or slice open a fresh coconut for you to enjoy after the work out. They also sell fresh produce and health foods such as kale chips and organic tea.
Since I've been at Enliven I've been trained by Michael, Kristy and Daniel during my time there and they are so incredibly helpful. Not only did they teach us great routines and exercises, they also gave me advice on take home exercises/stretches, nutrition and what to do about the muscle cramp problems that keep getting in the way of exercising. I've been able to reach my goal weight, I've never had another muscle cramp after following Michael's advice and I've been able to participate in things I never thought I would (Warrior Dash, 3km runs, 5km runs and 10 km runs)
It was much to my regret that I had to leave Enliven. I moved in with my partner and we lived 1.5 hours away from the center but if we ever move closer to the CBD, without a question I would sign up to Enliven again and I would recommend it to all my friends!
