What did you do before 808?
Before 808 I had been regular at the gym for many years. I started with a Personal trainer, once a week about 9 months before I joined 808.
Training previously had always been so ‘safe’, a text book work out or program. I knew I could go harder and do more than what other trainers had set for me. Then I come to 808 and now I have been UNLEASHED!!!
How do you find 808 sessions?
I get so excited about coming to the House. Every session is different, every session is a challenge, and every session you are pushed. Abe and Dez are awesome at pushing us beyond what we thought was our full potential. You are constantly growing and excelling with your workouts
Is 808 for everyone?
Everyone is able to do something here. There are all different levels working out together and it’s up to you how hard and how much you want to push yourself. The trainers are there to help you and the rest of the people working out will get you through it too. If you’re willing to give things a go, determined and love a good workout you’ll love this. If your a bit unsure- well… it’s just going to take us a little longer to crack you and you’ll be hooked!
What are some goals you have achieved since training with us?
My whole body has changed. Physically, my fitness and strength is charging. I can bust out 25 full push ups effortlessly, Hells make it 50!
Mentally, I am pushing myself every time. My mindset is that never do I think anything is too hard or not possible to achieve. If it’s a crazy set – it’s a bigger challenge and boy am I going to feel good when I’m done
What would you say to anyone who wants to give it a go, but is a bit scared?
Since I joined in October 2013 I have never dreaded having to get up at 5:30am to go to the gym. Or thought during the day “still have the gym to get through…” This place is where it’s at! And what’s make it even better are the people. Abe and Dez are so good at what they do and the people who come to 808 are the best, everyone is so friendly and encouraging. You’re not expected to be the HULK on your session, but after a few sessions with everyone getting behind you and taking you to the next level, You’re going to feel like the HULK and you’re going to love it!
It’s an empowering place
