I love girlfit for everything it has brought to my life over the last 18 months; new friends, early morning laughs, sweat and a healthier life style. When I first started gf I couldn't do a sit up or a push up. I was in ore of the ladies running around me & I still am. My little boy (aged 2) calls Nic the 'push-up lady,' he screams it out every time we drive past Nic's house. My 4 year old plays 'girlfit' with her friends & makes up circuits around the house which includes jumping on the beds, rolling on the floor, push ups and burpies. Girlfit has had a dominos effect in my family. My kids, husband and I have all benefited from being a part of girlfit. Thank you.

To me GF is about losing the stresses of daily life. I love that I can zone out and just have that one hour to make me a better person. I know I am stronger, I know I can run a bit more than when I started, and I know I am going to die at the Goldie Marathon thingy, but I know I will give it my best shot because i am GIRLFIT.

During the last two and half years Girlfit has become a regular and constant part of my life. I love how it has helped me to be a fitter and stronger person, which in turn, has had a positive impact across all areas of my life. I also love the camaraderie of being with a group of inspirational, supportive and like- minded women of all ages and walks of life. I now can’t imagine my life without Girlfit – even when it comes to those freezing cold winter mornings!

I love girlfit for the positive effect it has on my mind, body and soul. It has made me a much happier and healthy person. I love the new friendships that I have formed and it is a wonderful feeling to be part of such a great group of women.. Love It :)

Girl Fit Testimonial

So here I was thinking I had an average fitness level and had 8 weeks to get my act together before going snow skiing in the South of France.  I was very hesitant about joining because:

(a)        I’m too old (turning 50 this year);
(b)        I’m not fit enough - these girls are seriously fit;
(c)        I don’t know anybody and will feel left out;
(d)        I can’t get out of bed to train at 6am;
(e)        Working full time I can’t make the afternoon sessions;
(f)        I don’t think I can do it.

Okay well here’s what happened when I first started:

        I couldn’t run the distance between Sawtell Surf Club and the end of the beach:
        I was limping (due to very sore legs) for 3 days
        I was sweating like I’d been sitting in a sauna for 3 hours
        I was exhausted after the first hour and thought that’s it I’m never going to make it

And then it all changed, very slowly of course but here’s what’s happened:

        Total encouragement from every single woman in the group, you can do it, keep it up
        Oh and I’m not the oldest and get told how well I’m doing
        I’m starting to see muscles that were hidden away by idleness
        I can run the length of the beach (even though I must admit to being totally out of breath when I get to the end)
        I can actually do push-ups now (only a few on the toes but more on the knees)
        I can box (pretty funny coming from someone who’d never even held a boxing glove much less tried hitting into someone else holding a pad)
        I can skip (yes the last time I’d used a skipping rope was sometime in the 1970s)
        I did my first Gladiator in March and wasn’t last but was in the bottom 10.  My goal is to do August Gladiator and be in the middle of the pack

Then there’s the social aspect.  We go out for drinks, dinner and special events, not to mention the retreat where I got to know my training buddies a bit better - over a few jelly shots and bottles of wine that is.  We laugh and I have built a huge amount of respect for other Girl Fitters. Also I met some other amazing women from Woopi, Sapphire and Coffs who don't mind a bit of a shindig either.  I’m still trying to catch up with those young chicks...maybe I’ll catch them next year.

So if you think you’d like to give it a shot I cannot recommend this form of training more...then there’s also whale watch season starting...what better way to start your morning than striving for fitness while keeping an eye on the ocean just in case there’s something out there watching back.

I love my Girlfit wife Sally, who is my perfect boxing partner. She encourages me & we laugh heaps. I love our trainer Amanda, cause she's always full of beans & you can tell she enjoys training us. I love Robyn & her enthusiastic commitment to Girlfit. I love all the Sapphire girls. I've only been living in coffs just over 3 months, & these Girlfit women have been really friendly & welcoming to me. I loved Gladiator & that our own Leanne won. I absolutely love Sapphire Beach, where I live. You cannot beat exercising on the beach, watching the sun rise & the waves crash. Oh and Lee is also a good boy cause he has coffee with us on Saturdays. Although sometimes I hate what he makes us do & how it hurts the next day. But I get such energy from those sessions. I could go on, but that will do for now...

I was just saying to my husband yesterday how much Girlfit is a part of my life and how I believe that Girlfit kept me sane and positive after our baby was born! Having that time for 'just me', to box and get out any stresses of being a new mum. ( I DO love my beautiful baby! lol) I love that Girlfit exercises not only my body, although also my mind. I love the motivation from my fellow girlfitters and the trainers, I wouldn't train as hard if I didn't have all the wonderful women I am so honoured to train with:)

I've loved Girlfit since its humble beginning when there were about 7 of us running along l beach on a beautiful spring Saturday morning- who knew it would grow 2 change so many lives in such a short time! I love the laughter, fun determination & sense of achievement I see in the faces of all the great ladies all ages from all walks of life I meet there - I just bloody love it!

Kate Golding

The dark mornings, the cold and wet mornings ...you still come. I love the girly discussions, the laughter and most of all starting and ending my day with inspirational women of all different fitness levels, shapes and sizes:):) You ladies really make my day!
