I started my 9Round journey in March 2018, by taking part in the 6 Week Transformation Challenge. At the time I knew I needed to do something to drop the unwanted kilos, and get back some level of fitness. Little did I realise that the transformation that I undertook was not only body but more importantly a mental transformation as well. Whilst losing weight and the decrease in body measurements was fantastic, it was the transformation in diet and mindset that was the biggest thing that I took out of the challenge. From the time I jumped on the scales for the initial weigh in (which even I was shocked to see triple figures) I had nothing but support and encouragement from all the team, both past and present, at 9Round.
I have never been a "gym junkie" although I have been a member at other gyms (in fact there is one of those 24/7 places less than 1km, door to door) but after the initial month of fooling myself I have never stuck at it. This mindset has totally changed with my membership at 9Round. I look forward to every session that I do. The way the trainers encourage and cajole the best out of you. The friendships with other 9Rounders to push that little bit harder (Rusty and Predator.) Even with the change in job I still get up most mornings and make the drive from Rowville to Pakenham to work out, then again after work from Clayton to Pakenham for an evening session.
I may have dropped off the number of sessions that I am doing and I may have gone back into a few bad habits, I am convinced that I am now on a pathway to get down to a healthy weight and I look forward to continuing that journey with the 9 Round Pakenham crew.
If my little story helps one other person get off the couch and come in for workout or encourages one other person to do that extra workout for the week then I think that is a massive tick for all the team at 9Round Pakenham, because you guys are the ones that have enabled me to do it myself.
