It's the last day of 2017 and as we wrap up another year of fitness I'm taking a moment to reflect on the last 12 months and put together a list of my 5 Drive Fitness highlights, here they are...

1. Celebrating 10 Years Of Drive Fitness (in style)

Our 10 Year Anniversary Cocktail Party was one of the biggest highlights for me of 2017 but also of my entire 10 years at Drive Fitness. Celebrating this occasion with so many of our clients that helped to make the last 10 years possible was amazing and I'll never forget it. Thank you for the last 10 years and making our celebration special. 

2. Launching The Drive Fitness App

We launched our online personal training app this year and have since used it to run multiple fitness challenges & home training programs. It's been fun putting these together for you (and completing them with you, on occasions) and I hope you've found it useful throughout the year. I'm excited about how we can continue to use this to add value to our service moving forward. 

3. Our Gold Coast Marathon Team 

It was an incredible experience training with our Gold Coast Marathon team throughout the first half of 2017. We had runners spread across the 10km, half marathon and marathon events and it was great to share this journey and see everyone achieve their goals including 5 people becoming first time marathoners. I'm looking forward to doing it all again next year (anyone interested in running a marathon for the first time?!?). 

4. New 10 Week Transformation Challenges

Seeing so many great results from our new 10 Week Transformation Challenges in 2017 was amazing. Identifying some problems with the traditional '6-8 week weight loss challenge' model and re-inventing our '10 Week Transformation Challenge' to include body composition scanning, home training programs & food plans delivered through our app and a longer time frame of 10 weeks was a massive highlight for me this year. I'm looking forward to seeing more great results from our Transformation Challenges in 2018. 

5. Seeing Our Community Grow

We have welcomed a lot of new people to Drive Fitness in 2017 and it's a pleasure to have you joining us and a highlight for me to see our community continue to grow. Thank you to those of you who have been supporting Drive Fitness for a long time (some of you for the whole 10 years) and welcome to those of you who joined us this year. 

Thank you for another great year everyone, it's been my absolute pleasure & privilege to share 2017 with you and best wishes for a 2018 filled with heath, fitness and great results.
