I have had the pleasure of working with the I Choose Awesome Team during 2013. Having embarked on my own personal training program with the I Choose Awesome gym I then heard about their Twelve Week Challenge that had been successful in a nearby secondary college. After conversations with the Principal I engaged the I Choose Awesome Team to deliver this program to staff at my school.
Staff volunteered to join the program and commenced activities at the end of term one, continuing into term two. The weekly programs of yoga, Pilates and resistance training, as well as presentations on nutrition and well-being ensured that each member received an excellent program to support their personal commitment to both health and fitness.
Staff were impressed with the knowledge and skill of the I Choose Awesome Team and their ability to work easily and positively with a large group. Most participants were very keen to continue with physical activities after the conclusion of the Twelve Week Challenge.
Many commented on the extra energy they had for their teaching whilst they were involved in the program.
As a school we have had the benefit of team building and a focus on well-being that has impacted on our shared morning teas and our professional conversation. Staff have also been keen to support each other in further physical pursuits such as fun runs and marathons.
I have no hesitation in recommending the I Choose Awesome Team and their Twelve Week Challenge to other schools and organisations.
