I always thought, “I’m never going to be the fitness type”.
And yes, that used to be me. I always thought I would hate working out – I didn’t want to get tired, and I’m not into the healthy lifestyle. All I could imagine was standing alone in a gym surrounded by people who knew what they were doing, and machines I had no idea how to use it. Overall I thought it would be kind of boring thing to do.
When my friend introduced me GuavaPass in 2016 it was the newest and hottest thing in Bangkok. Of course, I said no at the start, but my mind began to change when I noticed my friend getting a stronger and healthier body. So, I made a leap of faith and decided to join GuavaPass, and my life hasn’t been the same since. For me, it’s not just an ordinary gym membership. It’s so much more interesting and exciting because there are plenty of classes and studios to explore, and I can try whichever I want, whenever I want.
My job is quite stressful and my days are always long and tough. I also suffer from ‘office syndrome’ – I’m always on my phone and sitting at my desk, for much too long (like everyone these days).
Once I challenged myself and attended my first GauvaPass class, I changed my mindset that exercise isn’t just for losing weight or to get a slim and strong body, but also for my mental and emotional health. I can get away from the stress from my work and the constant ringing of my phone, if only for an hour or so whenever I take a class. After not too long, I began to lose weight and started to notice my body becoming much fitter and slimmer than before. After seeing the result, it began to motivate me to push harder in my workouts, and be better both inside and outside the gym. Moreover, I discovered that my body can do some pretty incredible things, far more than I thought. I never knew how flexible I could be until I started yoga, or how strong I could be until I kept attending all those boot camp classes! I love doing them, and seeing the changes in my body as a result.
When GuavaPass contacted me to be the part of the 6 weeks challenge program, I was hesitated to say yes. I really wasn’t sure if I could do it. I didn’t feel like I could do it because I am not exactly skinny nor pretty like all those advertising models. But I thought, 5 years from now, what would it mean if that day when I got the call from GuavaPass, I didn’t say yes? So, I decided to accept the challenge. Since I started my GuavaPass journey, my life has changed: I’ve lost weight while gaining muscles, I’m healthier, I feel more confident and happier; I can also eat what my body wants without regret or scrutiny! I want to keep pushing myself, and constantly reach for the best version of me.
It would be super cool if I can help other people to be like me. It’s you against you. After the 6 weeks challenge, I promise you’ll see changes in your body, life and mind just like I have – the best reward you could ever receive.
I hope to encourage people to join GuavaPass and use this challenge as an opportunity to jump start a healthier and happier life.
Open your mind, believe in yourself and be ready to face the changes!
You will discover how far you can go. If I can do it, so can YOU!
