Here at Elevate we are all about community and working together to support each other’s fitness journeys. By sharing our journeys with one another it has helped motivate and provide a fantastic support network to our members and celebrate each other’s achievements. This week we caught up with Anoop, who is a regular in our classes.
Afternoon Anoop, please introduce yourself to our readers
Hi my name is Anoop, I’m 31 I like travelling, trying new food and especially spicy dishes.
What are your fitness goals?
My goal is to look good. I’m 6ft and would like to get to around 80kg. I don’t need more muscle, but I’d like to feel strong and gain confidence.
How long have you been a member here and what made you want to join Elevate?
I’ve been here for 3 months now. One evening I walked past Elevate and saw smiles on peoples face. I looked up the gym on social media and watched everyone taking part and got a feeling that this is a good gym and it would be somewhere I can achieve my goals.
What do you expect from a class at Elevate?
The trainers always welcome everyone when they arrive, so I expect that. I know they are always supportive. If I do anything wrong they help correct me. During my first week I struggled to complete the station but the trainers supported me and encouraged me to continue.
The team gave me a lot of support that week and because of that I made it my goal to come every day. All the members were also so supportive. When we work in pairs the other members encourage and help me.
What do you think to the trainers?
When I joined they all welcomed me like a friend. James and Josh did a session with me on that day, they helped me a lot and showed me how to use the equipment correctly.
What surprised you most about Elevate?
Looking from outside people might think oh it’s a small gym and expensive but, you get what you pay for. I think they give perfection so it’s well worth joining. If you tell them your aims they will support you.
Which class is your favourite?
Accelerate. I struggle during the class but, I really enjoy the feeling of accomplishment that I get after finishing the class. It always makes me feel confident.
What keeps you at Elevate?
I’m always thinking I need to go to Elevate tomorrow. The reason for this is because they’re so supportive and friendly and it’s a great community feel. People ask me why I don’t join David Llyod, I could get a jacuzzi, sauna etc. But you don’t get the atmosphere you have here at Elevate, small communities are like family, and they genuinely want to help everyone achieve their own goals.
