How long have you been with Callanan Fitclub?
Over 3 years (since it opened)
First memorable experience:
The first day down by the Pier was memorable. I just loved it from the word go – it brought back the memories of training days when I was involved in team sports. I thought to myself “yea at 45 I can still get a buzz from exercise”
Why do you do group fitness?
For so many reasons, as follows;
Physical wellbeing: I’ve always loved pushing myself to the limit in training and the group classes allow me to do that again! The support we get from Colm/Colleen is fantastic.
Mental wellbeing: The classes allow me to cope with my busy lifestyle, i.e. busy working mother involved in many community activities/events
Social: I have made so many genuine friends at the classes. We have such a laugh most classes, even though we pushing ourselves really hard. We can also share some of lives’ wee problems/challenges that we may be experiencing and subsequently offer each other support and advice. The fun isn’t just shared with fellow classmates – we also have great fun with Colleen/Colm
What keeps you coming back for more?
For all the reasons above. I actually hate to miss a class!
Sit ups or skipping
Least favorite exercise:
Shir it would probably have to be chest to floor burpees but bear crawl would come close!!!!
Favourite cheat meal:
