Rockhampton mother's health goals conquered
ROCKHAMPTON'S Lisa has built muscle, strength and most importantly confidence since kick starting her fitness journey 12 months ago.
Recommended by a friend to attend AmbitionZ Health and Fitness Rockhampton, the 42-year-old mother was looking forward to conquering her health goals and gaining the ability to keep up with her energetic children.
For Lisa, one of the centre's greatest appeals was its Ladies Only Training Room.
"This was a safe and secure area free of judgement with like-minded women like myself wanting to make a change,” she said.
"Over the last 12 months, I've noticed a lot of changes. I'm physically stronger and the exercise has helped me mentally - I know I can achieve anything I put my mind to now.”
Lisa said she has lost more than 40 kilograms since starting her fitness journey.
"It has been difficult at times, trying not to go back to old habits,” Lisa admitted.
"Eating was the biggest thing - choosing a healthier alternative.
"The staff were always supportive and welcoming and my friends, and family are my biggest supporters - they actually come and work out and do classes with me now.”
Established for more than 10 years, AmbitionZ Health and Fitness Rockhampton welcomes 'every body' over the age of 14 to join.
Owner and manager Clint Horsfall said the centre was an all-round facility which focused on creating a friendly and supportive environment for their members.
"AmbitionZ offers a large range of exciting Group Fitness Classes throughout the week and child minding for parents,” he said.
"One of our biggest drawcards is our dedicated Ladies Only Training Area - the perfect environment for like-minded women with 24 hour access.
"We are only facilities to offer regular Fitness Assessment and Exercise Programming free of charge.
Clint said the centre was focused on constantly evolving and bringing new classes to the centre including X-Fit, Metafit as well as challenges and seminars. For more information visit the centre on Musgrave Street, North Rockhampton or visit www.ambitionz.net.au.
