Let’s start by taking a chance…a chance on me!
Who am I? Well my name is Bek and I’m from (Australia!) the healthy living blog Crave. Crave explores my cravings for the gym, healthy food, a happy life and sweet indulgences.
When Annette called out for guest posts I quickly put my hand up- I mean how could I not want to be apart of her fabulous blog.
Picking a topic to talk about… well that was a different story. But then it hit me, one of the many things Annette and I have in common is our passionate love for Les Mills (among other things- past ED, bingeing, amazing men in our lives etc).
My love for Les Mills began when I took a chance and tried a Group Fitness class. Can I say, doing that was one of the best things ever! If you haven’t tried it- do it. I guess my passion shone through, as well as my type A need-to-do good-technique ha, because the Group Fitness Manager approached me and asked me to train in BodyStep.
If you don’t know about BodyStep then you haven’t lived! I’d say it’s the best Les Mills program, closely followed by BodyAttack. Ha- can you tell what programs I’m trained in?
Anyways, after much umming and ahhing I finally bit the bullet. I took a chance, paid a whole heap of money and did something big. Becoming a Les Mills instructor is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
It makes me so happy to instruct a class and help them on the journey’s to a healthier lifestyle. Not to mention endorphins rock and who can say no to getting paid to workout!
But I never would have experienced this culture, formed this passion (some could say obsession ha) and grown as a person if I hadn’t of just taken a chance.
Don’t get me wrong, taking chances doesn’t always pay off. But what have you got to lose? It’s like one of the motivations I use in my classes- you never regret the workout you do, but you’ll regret the one you don’t.
Chances can be gone in a flash, so grab onto it now. Who knows, maybe it’ll be life changing?
It’s scary I know and if you knew me than you’d know taking chances is not my forte, but it is something I should do more. So let’s take chances together! (Everything is less scary with someone by your side)
Why not start now by popping over to Crave and checking out my life- I’ve got Recipes, Group Fitness, Health and much more! Or better yet- why not try a BodyStep class, you will not regret it! And even if it turns out to be not your thing- what have you lost? Nothing! But you’ve gotten a workout out of it.
