|Club Role:||Workshop Manager|
|Category Selection||Reminder that events and initiatives must have occurred in the eligible period: 7 September 2020 to 12 September 2021|
|Which category is this nomination for?||Best Health and Well-being Event 2021|
|Name of event or initiative:||F45 with WIB|
|Brief overview of the event or initiative:|
We hired professional F45 instructors, who ran a HIIT style workout for 40 of our members. Afterwards we served a nutritious breakfast of muesli/granola.
|What were the aims of the event or initiative?|
We wanted to give our members a good workout! There's nothing like a good workout to relieve stress, and our members love a challenge which F45 certainly provides. F45 is a really popular training style at the moment, but also quite expensive, so we enjoyed giving our members a taste of it for a fraction of the price. The breakfast afterwards gives our members a chance to chat and get to know each other. This is what we love about F45 with WIB - our members bond over the challenge and then make new friends.
|How did you make it happen?|
Instructors - our events manager is a F45 enthusiast and brought in her favourite instructors, Fletch and Norm, who were keen to get the exposure and encourage new F45 members.
Food Sponsors - F45 with WIB was lucky enough to have more sponsors than normal! Harder workouts need more food/drink afterwards to replenish. We were sponsored by Fix & Fog (Nut butters), The Collective (yoghurt), Pure Delish (granola) and Ārepa (brain health drink).
|How did you make it better?|
We had two professional F45 instructors, which meant they could interact with the participants more with advice and encouragement.
|How did you show your commitment to sustainability?|
WIB has a commitment to sustainability. We encouraged everyone to BYO bowl and utensils, but supplied biodegradable spoons (wood) and bowls (paper) for those who couldn't. Most of the food came in recyclable containers, and all waste was disposed of responsibly. Leftover food was donated to UCE where it was gratefully consumed!
