AUGUST’s Member of the Month:
Ben has taken the FLYKICK Formula Challenge and knocked it out of the park! Having completed it not only first, but twice!
Quick Fire Q&A!
How did you hear about FLYKICK?
One of my friends, Britt, was a FlyKick regular and introduced a few of us from work to the Signature class. We really enjoyed it, started going more regularly both as a group and on our own, and the rest is history...
Has it impacted your lifestyle/health in any way?
Aside from generally feeling fitter/better, I’ve been surprised with how well I’ve adapted to getting up earlier to go before work. My routine has adjusted, and I’m getting to sleep earlier and doing something more productive with my mornings. I also miss the Northern Line 7:45-8:15am crush, which is nice.
What is your favorite part of the workout?
Probably the end – not because I don’t enjoy the workouts themselves, but the endorphin high is enough to carry me through even the most tedious morning meetings.
Did you learn anything about yourself throughout the time you've joined the #FlykickFam?
Having experimented with a few different types of workout class I’d have to say that the main thing I’ve learnt is that I have; (i) quite poor motivation/willpower when doing continuous cardio for 45 minutes (treadmill/spinning, etc.), but (ii) quite good motivation/willpower when doing varying intense bursts of activity for 45 seconds. It’s why I enjoy the new Strength class – I haven’t got time to overthink an exercise before I’ve moved onto the next one.
What motivates you to want to work out?
I really like the sense of accomplishment that comes with having sweated through a tough class. It’s as if I’ve banked that achievement for the day, and everything else after that is a bonus.
Share with us your favorite quote!
I’ll go with some poignant words from Andy Bernard (Ed Helm of Hangover fame) in the final ever episode of the US Office:
“I wish there was a way to know you're in ‘the good old days’, before you've actually left them”
Which is to say, live in the moment and make sure to fully appreciate what’s going on in the here and now. You don’t want to look back and regret not making the most of ‘the good old days’ when you were actually living them.
