So. It’s almost summer and I just got engaged, which means an engagement party for which it is essential that I look amazing for. Vain? Sure. When it comes down to it, as much as what is on the inside matters- feeling confident about the outside (especially at your engagement party) is a huge part of feeling great overall!
Enter, my stint at Virgin Active Health Clubs in Pitt St Mall (here in Sydney) to get my bod into action, with a little help in the wardrobe department from Adidas Australia. Virgin Active currently has Health Clubs located in Sydney (Pitt St, Frenchs Forest, Norwest) and Melbourne (Bourke St) but there are plans to roll out their amazing services nation wide.
Below is part one of my Workout Diary, which mainly consisted of getting acclimatized to the absolutely beautiful surroundings and getting into my amazing new Adidas gear. The very first thing that struck me is how NOT pushy the staff are there, and how genuine they are. Step foot in many not-to-be-named gyms and you are instantly accosted with up-selling and beefy looking guys that can sometimes come off as creepy. Virgin Active is just the total opposite, and the relaxation areas (Yoga/Pilates/Sleep Pods) are so very Zen that you almost forget about the hustle and bustle on George St below.
In fact it is pretty hard to believe that in the heart of the CBD, there is a little haven that houses a lap pool, dance classes, a rockclimbing wall and specialised sleep pods that are all designed to make you an all round happy person.
Virgin Active members get 20% off all Adidas purchases which is also a pretty schweet perk, among many others that you will discover with me on my journey to fitness.
