Herbal Fix launches in Coles Local Flagship Store in Surrey Hills

We are so excited to have been selected by Coles Local for the launch of their flagship store in Surrey Hills Victoria! We had lots of fun sampling on the day (- having sold out!) and talking to the friendly locals.

Here, we talk to Danielle Hook, owner/manager of Your Gym who said she loved the great range of healthy food available and the fresh, fruity taste of Herbal Fix.

 

Q and A with Danielle Hook, Owner/Manager Your Gym, Surrey Hills

 

Q: How long have you lived in Surrey Hills?

 

I have been in the Surrey Hills- Mont Albert area for most of my life. I went to Fintona Girls School from prep – year 12.

 

Q: How long have you had the gym?

 

We opened Your Gym in March 2004. I managed it at first, having managed other gyms in the area previously and then I brought the business in 2009.

 

Q: How many members do you have?

 

We have approximately 320 members. This ranges from causal users to long-term members. I have a handful of members that are still here and have been here since we opened in 2004!

 

Q: What’s different/special about your gym?

 

I strongly believe knowing someone’s name is a vital aspect to any small business, especially when these clients support your business on a regular basis. My staff are always meeting and greeting clients when they walk in and when they leave and I always have a staff member on the premises whilst we are open.

 

We offer personalised programs to every member by our qualified coaches and these are included in memberships.  Also we offer group fitness classes and our WOW factor is the introduction of virtual Les Mills group fitness classes so you can do a fitness class at any time (outside of our scheduled classes), either alone or with friends. We aim to fit in with people’s lives to make it easy for them to come to the gym, have the workout they want and have some fun too.

 

Q: What advice would you give someone wanting to get fit and look good in their swimmers for summer?

 

  • The problem with summer is people look for a quick fix and they want it now! Whilst this is great motivation, I would be more inclined to be using summer as a kick start to a life change – ‘a better version of you’, if you like!

 

  • It’s important to have a goal in mind, as we all work better having target to work towards and then achieving it makes it worthwhile.

 

  • Be consistent but don’t be hard on yourself if you have some bad days – know that you can get back on track.

 

  • Make your sessions fun – train with a group in a class or PT session or friends – this can also make you accountable so you have to turn up!

 

  • Have a reason for why you are doing this – attach an emotional feeling to the ‘why’ you are doing it – you are more likely to stick to something if it will affect you if you achieve it or don’t stick to it.

 

  • Know that quick fixes while can get the results fast, they may not last and any bit of exercise in your day is a good thing!
