“He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata”.
“What is the most important thing in the world? It is the people, it is the people, it is the people”.
And that is the aroha and manaakitanga Central Fitness Wellbeing (CFW) exude and convey throughout their organisation and processes.
Before I started, I would walk past the gym and could hear the shouts and yelps of effort and cheers of support and I knew I just had to be a part of that kaupapa! Initially, I was very intimidated by all the athletes when they would run out of the big gym doors for their 100 or 200m run but after suffering a long battle with mental health and depression I decided to do something for myself because I was tired of being drained and stagnant. With a soft nudge from one of the members who is also a dear friend of mine, I decided to take the leap and attend a free trial class.
Now after 5 months, I can say without a bat of an eye lid that the classes and coaches have challenged me and shown me the strength and courage I needed to reassure myself that I can be triumphant both physically and mentally! This has held me steadfast with my growth and healing when starring down the beast that is self-doubt and uncertainty.
Finally, although my physical and mental aspects are being met, the love, support and care from everyone is second to none and this is what sets CFW apart from the rest! I have been to many gyms and fitness groups but the thoroughness from coaches and the atmosphere of the gym and all its members are why I stay!
I am grateful to the team for their guidance and support of my physical and mental well-being as well as supporting my nutritional goals. I appreciate the team at CFW the culture they've established and would recommend this facility to anyone!
