We’d like to introduce you to an integral part of our team…. Let’s get to know Jade Varley, our Member of the Month for July! Q1. Please tell us a bit about yourself: I moved over from the UK about 5 years ago with my husband, Scott, and we love living here. We have a pet rat and some fish and I spend most of my time running my own business.nQ2. Was there a particular “snap point” for you that made you want to start training?nI had been dabbling in many different forms of exercise for about 10 years and I had reached the point where my energy levels were really low. I also wanted to do something that would help me to manage my emotions which I think exercise is really good for.nQ3. What’s been the biggest thing you’ve learnt from training at MP?nExercise can be fun…and addictive. I don’t think I could go more than a few weeks without exercising now. I definitely never thought I would say that! Q4. What’s your favourite exercise to do and why?nJump squats. I’m not sure why. Probably because they are relatively easy and the jumping up bit is quite good fun. I also quite like running, but not too far because I’m too impatient. Q5. What’s your advice for anyone thinking about starting an exercise or nutrition program?nJust Do It! Starting anything is often the most difficult bit so I would say start small and go from there.nQ6. What do you enjoy most about training at MP?nI like the community feel and how everyone gets along so well. It is a really supportive and fun environment and the way the sessions are structured really suits my lifestyle.n———————————————————————— Jade started training with us in our ICE program in March 2013. She’s always had really good attendance, but we’ve definitely noticed even greater consistency this year. Plus, her fitness levels continue to increase and she is faster and stronger as the months go on.nMaking time for yourself when you have a business to run can be incredibly challenging, but Jade seems to do it with ease! Several mornings each week, she’s in the studio with a big smile on her face – starting her day by doing something just for her. And that’s just one of the many reasons why Jade is so deserving of our Member of the Month award – congratulations, Jade!
