Our Member of the Month for May began training with us in February this year, and has already achieved some fantastic results, proving that hard work really does pay off! Let’s get to know Terry Kerr, our Member of the Month for May! Q1. Please tell us a bit about yourself: I’m 38 on the 6th of this month. I have 2 great kids and I’ve been with my partner, Kristie, for 16 years. I currently manage Red Plum Automotive. We are a national vehicle brokering firm. It’s a job I’m enjoying very much and look forward to the company growing over the coming years. Q2. Was there a particular “snap point” for you that made you want to start training?nThe “snap point” for me to get back into shape happened when I was trying on a friend’s clothes whilst getting ready for the Red Plum Christmas party. The shirts were way too tight around my waist and belly. I knew I had let myself go, but this was something I’d never had an issue with in the past. Soon after that, Luke came to visit me at work. The penny really dropped at that point. Q3. What’s been the biggest thing you’ve learnt from training at MP?nThe biggest thing I’ve learnt from training at MP is getting fit again is extremely challenging, but it can be a lot of fun, too. Also, getting fit and dropping fat need not be a chore if you have other fun loving and like minded people around you, all striving for a similar goal. Of course, Luke makes it both justifiably challenging but incrementally rewarding, with constant updates on the changes he notices in us all. Q4. What’s your favourite exercise to do and why?nMy favourite exercise would have to be the boxing with running thrown in for a little extra torture. I am finding myself improving at all of the exercises, which is motivation in itself. Q5. What’s your advice for anyone thinking about starting an exercise or nutrition program?nMy advice is to set lots of small and moderately easy goals to achieve while you’re on your path. I have found that simply setting one ultimate goal is far too general and is a reward that’s too far away to smell. The small goals you achieve while you are on your journey offer lots of little rewards which will keep your motivation high. The smallest fish taste the sweetest. Q6. What do you enjoy most about training at MP?nEasily the best part of training at MP is the people. A cliché, I know, but hey, I’m a social animal. Sure, I could say it’s the facilities or the quality of the program, and that goes without saying, but it’s the people who motivate me and it’s the people who keep it interesting. You guys push me to jump higher, run faster, get that last burpee out and to not quit until I get to the top of the hill. ———————————————————————— Terry attends our ICE program, consistently attending 3 classes each week. Since commencing training in February this year, he has dropped a couple of sizes and is fitting into clothing that he previously couldn’t wear with confidence. And while the physical transformation has been exceptional, what Terry contributes to the group can’t be underestimated. His sense of humour, his fun loving nature and the way he encourages his team mates is so incredibly valuable. I know I speak on behalf of everyone when I say, “THANK YOU, Terry!”nCongratulations for being our Member of the Month for May and keep up the awesome work!
