In December 2013, I approached Ngarama to help train me with my second Ironman campaign. My training had plateau & I was looking for someone to meet my needs. To be honest, she really had no choice. I don’t think I gave her time to respond to my request her saying ‘No’ wasn’t an option for me. Two years later, she’s still my trainer & I’m very proud to be one of her clients.
GT was my first proper experience in group fitness. I had always kind of balked at the idea of group fitness, worried about it being super competitive environment and that I would be left behind. But a colleague persuaded me to join, proved me wrong and I haven’t looked back.
I have never considered myself an athlete. Active, yes, but only average when it came to potential. With encouragement from my sister, I completed a Real Women's mini Duathlon. It left me feeling half dead after but inspired by the fact that I had done it! I then completed a Kapiti Women's Duathlon and was satisfied, I was a big person doing it.
