When Mirella first joined TF she was shy and reserved only really taking part in one class per week. Whereas now the person you see is the complete opposite in so many positive ways! Mirella has completely broken out of her shell, now tripling her participation in classes to three classes per week, is engaging in a vast variety of strength classes and constantly wanting to do more! Over the years of Mirella training at TF she has become stronger in many ways. Mirella’s strength is seen physically and within her self-confidence as she holds her head up tall. She enjoys coming to class regularly to engage with her new found friends as well as now possess a mindset that cannot be held back! Absolutely sensation work Mirella!
- Coach Emilia
When Mirella first joined TF 7 years ago, she came along to be with her sister, who was already training with us. Her sister encouraged her to come along to help her build her confidence, help her develop her social skills, and improve her mobility, movement and coordination, as Mirella struggled with a few developmental areas. When Mirella first joined TF she wouldn’t talk to anyone but me. She wouldn’t do any class by mine and wouldn’t attend training if her sister wasn’t there. Fast forward to the present, has gone from an extremely shy introvert to a total extrovert, with a wicked sense of humor and super cheeky banter. Mirella enjoys a variety of classes with various coaches, has made numerous friends, attends training on her own without her sister, and has vastly improved her movement, mobility, strength and coordination with excellent overall development. Mirella’s transformation is amongst my top 5 favorites; considering how many people I have coached over TF’s 12 years, that’s a massive statement! Congratulations Mirella, you are one in a million and I absolutely love you to bits! You are smashing it! Keep up the excellent work!
- Coach Terri
Here is Mirella’s story in her words:
“I joined Terrific Fitness with my sister in 2015. At the start I was afraid but when I first walked in the door it was unbelievable. I didn’t know what to expect but I got more than I could ever imagine.
Over the past 7 years I have become more confident and comfortable being here in comparison to when I first started training. At the beginning I would come to one class each week and not speak to anyone. I would just sit stick to the side, whereas now when I walk into class I feel confident and it makes me feel better about myself!
I have met new people and made new friendships over the years. I am able to be open in the studio to everyone, the coaches and everyone I train with. They all give me confidence and strength. I love being able to train with my friends, especially Karen, Vanessa, Effie, Fi, Gina, and Michelle. They are great people who look after me.
When training I love how all of the coaches push me. I love that they don’t let me give up and that I can push myself to do more! I love hitting the red zone with my MyZone, it makes me feel stronger and proud, plus I like to have fun with my friends.
When I first started training I only really did classes with Terri, I did circuit and core. Now I train with Emilia on a Monday, Jamie on a Tuesday and Terri on a Saturday, I can’t choose which one I love the most because they are all equally good and give me strength. I only used to train once, now I train 3 times week and I love it!! I feel so good now being able to train three times a week. I look forward to coming to the gym and seeing everyone.
A big thing that I have learnt since joining Terrific Fitness is how important my food is, as well as I when I put my mind to something I can achieve it was a good mindset! I do the Healthy Habits program with Coach Emilia, and now I know what to eat, I know how to watch what I eat, as well as how to put my mind to something.
Joining Terrific Fitness has made me stronger, more confident and everyone around me has accepted me with open arms which I love”. – Mirella La Face
