It was my step daughter’s birthday party at the weekend.


We held it at RISE.


Save a few pounds like.


Got a wedding to pay for after all.


Also got the school parents in and asking questions about what we do.


Smart me 😉


One parent expressed that she’d love to do something to get in better shape.


But there was always a ‘more important’ thing that needed the money spending on it.


“What’s more important than your health, happiness and longevity?” I asked.


“Erm, the kids I suppose” she replied.


“And after that?”




The purpose of these emails isn’t to sell you a membership with us.


It’s to ‘sell you’ on a healthy lifestyle.


To make you realise the reasons it hasn’t been happening so far can be overcome.


To help you change habits, thought processes, beliefs and so on.


To make the whole thing as easy and enjoyable as possible.


If you chose to do / are doing that with us, that’s cool.


If you do it / are doing another way, that’s cool too.


As long as you’re doing it.


It’s very easy to think that we don’t have the money for it.


Even though we’re spending much more on less important things.


Even if there are more important things that demand our attention and finances.


There will be less important ones we can divert both away from.


Is it really more important to have a bigger / better / more house, TV, Car, Holidays, Haircut, treatments, nights out, etc?


A membership with us costs 4% of the UK average wage.


8% of minimum wage.


And there are other things to do that cost less.


And more.


All lower percentages than most spend on the ‘less important’ stuff, we’d wager.


Again, not trying to sell you a membership.


You can’t actually ‘buy’ one anyway.


It’s application only.


So we can make sure we’re a good fit for each other.


And that we retain the awesome atmosphere and community we’ve worked hard to create.


If you already investing in yourself (with us or elsewhere) – that’s awesome, keep it up 🙂


If you’re not, do something about it.


Either go and start doing something else or click this link to find out more about our ‘find out more’ meeting next week –


We’ve updated that page too – there’s now videos from previous challengers, photos of the meeting, more details of what to expect, etc.



Much love,
