Meet our Studio Member Ilanna
Our little quiet achiever, Ilanna at Pinnacle Caribbean Park who when chatting to us about her training told us that she didn’t think it was very motivational. Well we beg to differ!
Ilana describes her life as very busy. Juggling full time work as a teacher, her partner studying and working full time as a critical care nurse plus spending lots of time cooking and spending time with family.
“My job is quite demanding and training provides me with an outlet after work each day for my mental and physical health. Training with a group of people and forming connections outside of my familiar circles motivates me as I look forward to seeing them!”
So what does the typical week look like for Ilana?
I always like to start off my week right with a Locker Room class on Monday’s after work. This always starts my week off right.
Wednesdays I attend Body Pump at Scoresby and love the CRX class there on Fridays too.
Saturday I like to take things a little slower with a sleep in and then a Reformer class at Caribbean Park.
Sundays are my rest days where we spend time with family and in the kitchen cooking.
Sometimes it’s hard to get to classes depending on if I get out of work on time but I try to go as much as I can and see it as part of my day. I go straight to the gym from work so I don’t have time to think twice about it. The feeling you get after a workout and the consistency and discipline that comes with going to the gym regularly is also a big driving force.
My biggest motivational factor is knowing the trainers will see you every week (and notice when you aren’t there!) as well as the people you usually train with. It takes me out of my comfort zone and makes me try things I definitely wouldn’t if I was training by myself.
