We are excited to announce the Stellar member of the month for December goes to Dianne. Congratulations!
Di has been training with us for over 4 years. Her dedication to training and no quit attitude is truly inspiring to us and other mums out there. With 3 children, multiple school curriculum activities to get them to, casual teaching herself and helping with her husband’s business and extended family, she is one busy mum.
We love that it doesn’t stop her from making time to exercise and commit to her ongoing health and fitness.
Over the years Dianne has had a lower back issue but has still been able to keep up her training with modifications and continue to improve her strength and fitness.
As such a long standing member, Jess and I couldn’t imagine our Stellar days without her in our classes. She is so very deserving of this award!
We asked Dianne to answer the following questions for us and here is what she had to say:
1. What is your biggest achievement since joining our health & fitness group?
I started training with Dani & Jess 4 years ago. As a mother of 3, I was carrying excess weight, had no energy, muscle strength or tone to my body. My biggest achievement to date has been getting my pre-baby body back and maintaining it. Increased energy, overall body strength & tone has also been great.
2. What is your favourite type of workout?
I use to say lane sprints until my back injury! These days, I love a cardio boxing class & the 7 by 7 workout is still a favourite!
3. What is your main health and fitness goal for the next 12 months?
To maintain my fitness & strength levels especially when modifying workouts due to injury. I also want to challenge myself to try new things and push myself out of my comfort zone.
4. Share your favourite recipe with us?
Haloumi & Quinoa Salad (see Newsletter Recipe)
5. Hit us with your favourite motivational saying?
Inspired by my gorgeous friend Mel's favourite saying 'Go Hard or Go Home'! Especially with the early morning training sessions when you get out of bed to make a difference and to push yourself!!
Thanks Di, keep up the awesome effort! We love you being a part of the Stellar Family! xxx
