Not only do they go hard at the gym, our Flite Crew proved they are not lightweights when it comes to partying with the inaugural FliteFit Christmas Party held on November 21, 2015.
About 60 members, plus family and friends, joined us to celebrate our first seven months of FliteFit in the gorgeous upstairs function room at the Peregian Beach Hotel. Photos have been downloaded to our Gallery page.
Not only was it a time to spend time with our members socially, it was also an opportunity for us to acknowledge people who have been invaluable in the establishment of the gym and also the hard work and dedication of our 100+ members.
Firstly we expressed our deepest gratitude to those people who help make the backbone of the gym - our trainers. Deb Constable has been with us from the start and has been awesome with her dedication and support. Ceri Williams was a member of Simply Fit and fell into a yoga teacher role when a last minute sub was desperately needed and has been with us ever since. Heather Braithwaite, Kim Rintell and Cherryle Enchelmaier have all happened to walk into our lives, or our gym, at a time when we needed them most. These ladies are all part of the reason our members support us and we appreciate everything they bring to the gym.
Special mention was made of Mark Beard of Kreshendo for the FliteFit concept, branding, colours and website; Kristy Weller for our social media presence on Facebook and Instagram and Tracey Beard for all our website and promotional photographs.
Since we've taken over and re-branded the gym, we have managed to increase our membership by over 120% and to celebrate this we presented our 100th member, Adrian Newport, with a FliteFit shirt.
