Start the new year off right with the fun, friendly place to get fit.
Allstar Fitness Academy’s Sarah Bowden and the crew are training for Tough Mudder events in May and says anyone who’s ever wanted to commit to this gruelling fitness challenge will go better with Allstar:
“While it is a pretty intense event, we’ve got a lot of members who have done it before and bring the level of the beginners up with them,” she said.
“It’s an awesome team environment and knowing you’re a member of this team makes it so much more fun and it makes it easier to complete,” she said.
Celebrating her third year in business, Sarah said Allstar has continued to succeed because of the comfortable environment and relaxed crew at the gym.
“People love training here because we’ve got such a good crew. No-one there is going to judge you or be unkind to you, but if they think you are capable of lifting heavier weights, they will tell you,” she said. “It’s a really supportive place where people can just do their own thing or choose to be challenged to do more.”
All Star hold classes every weekday at 5:30am, 9:30am, 4:30pm and 5:30 pm but on Saturday from 8am it’s Game Day.
“I’ve made up fitness versions of a lot of the games I used to play as a kid,” Sarah said. “Monopoly, Uno, those kind of games.”
“Each colour might be a different exercise and a draw four in Uno might mean you have to do four times as many reps,” she said. “People really like it!”
Sarah is already fundraising for the Relay for Life this year. In 2017 she was the highest individual fundraiser, managing to raise $10,455. She hopes to equal or better the feat this year: “We’ve already raised a total of $1495 for this year and this year we’re aiming for over the 10,000 again.”
