Over a three year period I turned my life and health around
Three years ago I was 48 years old and smoking a pack of cigarettes a day. Quite simply I had had enough and stopped. I found myself wound up after work and needing to unwind for the evening so I decided to start walking. To my amazement I actually enjoyed it and started going for a walk every day. One day I got a crazy idea maybe I could run for a little bit walk for a little bit and then maybe learn to run and get a bit fit. When telling a friend about my new passion for jogging she suggested that HBF have free boot camp classes for all levels and perhaps I might enjoy that. So I got online and signed up. My first class was an intermediate one but eventually I worked my way up to the advanced class. I was enjoying these so much I would travel around the northern beaches to do all the free HBF classes; it was at one of these classes that things were about to change for me when I met Paul.
Paul was the instructor at the HBF Arena free classes. During Paul's workouts we would see a group doing some really hard-core workouts and I was inspired. I took the challenge, joined HBF Arena gym and even though I was nervous turned up to my first training with Edgar at Outdoor X. We did a workout called the twelve days of Christmas.
- Day 1: sprint up heartbreak hill and back.
- Day 2: do two press ups then run up heartbreak hill and back.
- Day 3: do three burpees two press ups then sprint up heartbreak hill and back and so on until all twelve days were completed.I only just finished but was in awe of those who completed so fast. What was really awesome was the support from other members who really encouraged me to keep going and it wasn't long before I could keep up with most of them.
I've done two half marathons which I never thought I would ever do.
But I think the most important thing is I love it and look forward to working out every day. We have a really top crew that are so supportive and make it fun. My advice to the newcomer is to not let your fear get in the way. You may think you're being judged but you're not, we were all newcomers once and know what it's like. So don't hold back get involved and change not just the way you look but change your whole outlook on life with some back breaking, soul destroying exercise at HBF Arena.
