Our Member of the Month for March celebrated her 1 year training anniversary with us last month, and what a wonderful year it’s been! Let’s get to know Margaret Iles, our Member of the Month for March! These legs are going to be running a half marathon in a few months! Q1. Please tell us a bit about yourself: I have 2 grown up girls who live in Canberra, and have worked for Australia Post for 27 years. I moved to Brisbane just over 12 months ago for a lifestyle change and I’m loving it. Q2. Was there a particular “snap point” for you that made you want to start training?nMy snap point was centred around my youngest daughter putting on weight. I needed to be a role model, so joined a program and lost 15kg. I realised that I could train myself in my own back yard. At this time, I also took up running and haven’t looked back. When I came to Brisbane, I moved into a sedentary job and realised I needed something more, so I joined MP and the rest is history!nQ3. What’s been the biggest thing you’ve learnt from training at MP?nTo challenge yourself. I would never have done that without Luke and the team. Q4. What’s your favourite exercise to do and why?nIt’s definitely changed recently and I am favouring burpees. I also love boxing sessions. Q5. What’s your advice for anyone thinking about starting an exercise or nutrition program?nConsistency is key, and don’t beat yourself up if you have a bad day. Get up and try again the next day. Q6. What do you enjoy about training at MP?nThe fact that we never know what Luke has in store for us keeps it interesting, but above all my MP teammates. ———————————————————————— Margaret is currently doing our ICE Program, and has set the super exciting goal of running the Gold Coast Half Marathon in July this year! We are so looking forward to watching her cross the finish line! Congratulations for being our Member of the Month for March, Margaret! On behalf of the entire MP Family, we appreciate you and all of the positive energy and hard work you bring to every workout!
