Member Success Story – Donna

The next PARC 8 Week Challenge kicks off July 22. Hear from Donna (left) who smashed her fitness goals in the last round.

‘8 weeks ago I was feeling sluggish, unmotivated and basically fed up with myself.  I saw the 8 week challenge pop up on social media and thought “ok I’m going to do this – I’m going to commit!” So I signed up and got ready for 8 weeks of what I thought would be hell!

Day one of the challenge I pretty much shed a tear when I saw the scale, this made me even more determined to see this challenge through no matter what. I chose the amazing Pru as my trainer, then literally never looked back (and to my delight it actually was not hell!).

After attending the nutrition seminars, I learned that I didn’t need to deny myself the food I enjoy, and with a bit of tweaking my diet I was actually eating more than before. I found I had so much more energy and really started looking forward to my training sessions. Eight weeks later, I had dropped 10.6kg and had a 7% body fat loss. My fitness level and strength had improved along with my general happiness.

I never thought I could commit to 8 days, let alone 8 weeks. With the help and support of Pru and all the amazing trainers at PARC, I made it through and really enjoyed the whole experience. Now I’m really looking forward to the next 8 week challenge, setting new goals, and being confident that I have the tools and support of Pru and the PARC team to help me achieve them.’

Did you know that our vision is that 'Every Child In Frankston Can Swim'?🌳👶🏻

The Rotary Peninsula 2.0's Birth Tree is one way that's helping us to achieve this vision. ⚙️

By joining the Birth Tree, you get your child's name on this year's plaque. Plus through the Birth Tree, $45 of every contribution goes straight back to PARC and PINES to help more children build confidence in the water. Your contribution will go directly to funding baby swim programs. It's a great gift to welcome a child into our ever-growing community in Frankston.🏊

You can purchase a place for a baby born this year on the birth tree by heading to our website in the link below. Or for older children, you can add them to the Family Garden. Find out more in the link in our bio.
