ClassPass – we’re on!

Healthquarters classes are now available on ClassPass. ClassPass offers the best fitness studios, classes and experiences are on one pass. Work out where you want, when you want, and how you want, with one membership.

You can work out anywhere. Jetsetters can stay active wherever they are. Your membership lets you work out when you travel in any of our 39 cities worldwide.

You can choose from flexible plans. With no annual contracts, you can hold, change up or cancel your membership whenever you need.

You can hit the gym. Not feeling up for class? Book an hour of gym time and take the treadmill or the weight room at your own pace.

You can add on classes. Easily purchase additional classes if you need more in your monthly cycle, or if you want to visit your favorite studio again. Schedule on the go. The iPhone and Android apps make it easy to search and find classes while you’re out and about. Try recommended classes. ClassPass will recommend classes we think you’ll like based on how and where you like to move.

Stay active, live happy. A great workout has the power to make you feel like your best self. Your potential is limitless; you can do anything. Think you’ll never be able to lift, row, cycle, push up or downward dog? We’ve seen nevers turn into every days and firsts turn into forevers. Get moving and get happy!

You can find all of Healthquarters classes on ClassPass here:

Whilst you can enjoy our classes on this pass, you’ll only be able to use your ClassPass at Healthquarters 2 x a month. So a Healthquarters class pass is still essential to enjoy the Healthquarters classes on a weekly basis. ClassPass offer a variety of passes from $40 a month for only 3 classes or $99 a month for 10 classes. However; these are still no match Healthquarters memberships with unlimited classes as low as $15 a week.

Fitness benefits of exercising with a friend

There are many fitness benefits to be had by exercising with a friend. One of the best ways to keep active or get back into exercise for the long-term is to do it with a friend. Exercise is greatly enhanced when you are with a buddy and/or in a small group setting.

So why not stack the odds in your favour! Here are a number of benefits to illustrate that doing it together, is better:

1. Accountability – when you have someone counting on you, you are far less likely to skip a workout. Making plans to meet your friend at 6am is much more concrete than vaguely planning to exercise alone in the morning or after work. Set a date and don’t be late!

2. Exercise becomes more fun – a key element in forming a lifestyle habit is fun. It’s always more enjoyable to share an experience with a friend. It also allows you try out other activities. After all, it’s pretty hard to do boxing with someone without a buddy holding the pads.

3. You tend to get more out of the session – you’ll work that bit harder when exercising with a partner. It can bring out a competitive instinct that allows you both to push your limits. You’re more likely to do a few extra reps when you’re being spurred on.

4. Work out longer – time flies when you’re having fun… or at least when you are distracted. Having someone to chat with between sets let’s you focus on something other than just your workout making the time go by faster.

5. You are more likely to try new things – ever wanted to try a fun run or a boxing class but felt intimidated going there alone? With a partner your excuses are now removed. It opens up all sorts of possibilities to new forms of exercise.

6. Reduced costs – that personal training session instantly became cheaper for both of you! And, you’ll still get plenty of individual attention from the trainer.

7. Social well-being – social interaction is often listed as an important factor for many people when choosing exercise. Training with a partner gives you that social contact that is often non-existent when going solo.

8. Shared goals – if two of you are working towards a common goal, it helps to build more resolve and resilience. It’s a fantastic feeling to achieve a goal, and it can be even better when you achieve it with someone else.

Get a friend, buddy or mum and bub to try a Healthquarters class this month and take advantage of the FREE trail class for all new members. Motivate them to stick with you and encourage them to sign up for the 30 classes for 20 pass which works out at only $11 a class. Valid until 31 November, 2016.

Meet & greet with Sam & Snez

This week I had the pleasure of meeting Sam & Snez (Snezana) from The Bachelor at the launch of the new Weet-Bix Blends range. I was invited on behalf of the North Shore Mums Network. I was secretly excited as I loved the show. I had a brief chat to Sam about his 28 by Sam Wood online fitness program and Snez about how our daughter’s share the same name and that she really wanted to come along too!

North Shore Mums interviewed Sam & Snez about health, fitness, life and love. You can read the full interview here.
