I recently joined a gym. I was so sick of trying motivate myself and I’m definitely the person who needs a kick up the bum to keep me going. At the beginning of the year I made a good effort to go walking regularly and to make better eating choices. But after a few months of this with every little weight loss to counter, my motivation went out the window.

While on silly Facebook, I’d seen this gym advertised a couple of times. Friends had joined but I kept thinking ‘What do I do with my little boy while I work out?”. Last week this gym offered a mum and bub type class and I jumped at the opportunity! Great I can work out and the kids can be looked after.

This week I went to trial the class and LOVED it! I felt like jelly when the class ended and I could have possibly chucked my guts but I felt fantastic. None the less, it’s got me hooked. I can not wait to do it all again next week. It’s just want I needed, a kick up the bum!

  • So good there’s a baby inclusive class! I struggle to exercise with a baby. You’re doing so well


  • I joined a gym in Jan and due to sickness and motivation sometimes I do need a kick up the bum to get back…but I do always need it and as a mum generally it is my hour where the kids get fun time in the creche and I get some alone time and exercise.


  • good on you I have just done the same thing.


  • it can be what we need hey, that extra bit of motivation! i love how your gym caters for bubs as well. that is a really considerate move on their behalf and it really makes you feel valued as a mother and a consumer. those owners need a pat on the back! what a great service


  • Hope you’ve kept it up!


  • and i would need someone to drag me there .lol


  • i would love to join a gym but its expensive
