Hi, my name is Carmela and I’m 46 years old. I’ve been coming to Renouf Personal Fitness for 12 years now. I like the personalised atmosphere. The guys are great. They actually care about your health and fitness and it’s a family type environment. I just love it. Everyone is very close and everyone cares about everybody.
Renouf started off as a personal PT studio, so it was just PT alone and group training. Now they’ve opened it up to just a select group of clients coming in to use the gym. But, it’s the personalised aspect of it that everyone loves. You walk in and they acknowledge everybody by name, not just your trainer but all the trainers talk.
We socialise. It’s a great feel and a great atmosphere. You don’t get that in a commercial gym, I’ve been there – you don’t. You’re just a number. Here you’re not a number, you’re part of the family. You can phone Chris up or Adam up and just ask a question and they’re always willing to help. They’ll help with your food and nutrition. They go over and above what they need to do as trainers and that’s because they actually care. It comes back down to the care factor.
I’m here every day, five, six days per week. I do personal training with Robin, probably three or four days and then I do my own thing. I come and do classes as well, so whenever I can, I come down here.
If you’re stressed out and you don’t want to train, you come to train and you feel so much better. It just gives you that positive mindset and you feel good. It makes you feel good.
I know that there’s a lot of people out there who are intimidated and they don’t think they can do it and they don’t have the confidence in themselves. They look at people and think, “Oh, I can’t do that.” Just come down. The boys will make you feel fantastic. They won’t make you feel like, “Oh my God, I can’t do this!” They help you every step of the way. Come down and give it a go.
