I'm a 40 year old married father of two boys. I played plenty of sport at school and enjoyed the banter of the team. For about 10 years I pretty much did no exercise, I smoked, drank and was generally pretty unhealthy.
I originally joined studio fit in October 2013. I had been running for a few years and had managed to build up to the half marathon that year but I was getting bored. My brother in law had been banging on about studio fit for a while and he was getting in great shape so I thought I would give it a go.
I didn't have any particular fears about studio fit, but what I did want to do is avoid the menotony of the traditional gym. Training alone is dull, studio fit was completely different and I enjoyed the variety, camaraderie and team ethos straight away.

I struggled with anything except running as I knew no different. I had been a member of a traditional gym a few times and struggled to attend regularly because there was no accountability. Training alone in a gym takes a certain strong mindedness that I just didn't have.
Studio fit made me feel great. I trimmed down, added some muscle and gained some great mates. More recently in October 2015 I joined the BLS program and that took it to another level. After two years I needed a change so I signed up for the strength sessions and that was a great decision. My body shape took another shift and I was finally able to do press ups with confidence.
Both studio fit and BLS have been great and although it sounds weird they become part of our life. I choose to be committed to them and the guys make it pay back in spades. The advice, guidance and encouragement I have received has literally transformed my life. I have now set some new goals for the year and through the mindset training picked up through BLS I am now well on the way to achieving them.
Do it! Speak to the Beer boys and find the program that is right for you. There is something for everyone but you do also need to understand that you are responsible for committing to your well being. The guys will offer support but you have to be accountable.
FINALLY READY TO MAKE THE JUMP AND MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE?
Then welcome to Studio Fit, its a pleasure to meet you :-)
