This month we spoke to gym-loving couple, Sonia & Max Dellacorte who have both been long-time members of C-Life! They both had different reasons for joining a gym but together, have built themselves a nice C-Life community around them. Read on to find out more.
What inspired you to join C-Life at the beginning?
Sonia: I have been a member for over 14 years, I just had a baby and wanted to get back into shape.
Max: I wanted a gym that was close to home and had a variety of classes.
What does being a member of C-Life mean to you?
Sonia: It is basically my second home, the friendships I made over the years keep me coming back.
Max: Everyone is so friendly.
What motivates you to keep training?
Sonia: Self-discipline keeps me motivated – some days I am not as motivated however I know I will always feel better after a class or a weights workout.
What fitness accomplishments are you most proud of?
Sonia: Fitness is a journey that takes time – building strength and maintaining it is what I am most proud of.
Max: I had never lifted weights before joining but now know how important it is for your general health especially as you get older.
What is your favourite equipment / group class / type of exercise?
Sonia: I love group classes, in particular HIT. Boxing and SuperX are my favourite classes!
Max: I prefer just working out on the cross trainer, doings weights and Spin.
If you were stuck on an island together, which 3 people that you know / train with / who works at C-Life would you bring with you?
Sonia & Max: My friend Gail as we have a good laugh, Callie (Personal Trainer) as she would be fun and could train us! Jenny who also trains with us and is a Chiropractor and can give us massages!
What advice would you offer new members starting at C-Life for the first time?
Sonia: Grab a friend and just start! If you feel like using machines and weights then there is plenty of that at C-Life or try a class, there are so many different classes to choose from.
Max: I would start off by booking in with one of the great trainers to show you how to use the equipment.
