What Trek Training Is Really Like For A Newbie

By The Wild Women On Top Team

If you've recently called our office, you have probably come across our gorgeous Client Services Manager Robby. Robby is like a ray of sunshine in the office at Wild Women HQ. She's got an infectious laugh, a huge smile, and a big heart. Plus, she gives some of the best hugs... ever. 

Robby is a true Wild Woman. She loves nature and adventuring outside. She keeps fit by swimming with her friends twice a week, going to her local gym and walking on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. When a new Trek Training session with coach Susan opened up close to home and work on Thursday mornings, Robby thought she'd join in and give it a try. We asked Robby what Trek Training is really like as a brand newbie... 

How did you find your first Trek Training session with Susan?

I loved it! I loved that I had achieved my 10,000 steps for the day before my usual work day had even started.

Were you nervous about being new? If so, how did you overcome it?

There was really no need to be nervous at all. Everyone was so welcoming.

I was surprised that some of the ‘regular’ Trek Training women participate on different days of the week, depending on their work or family commitments. This means the group can change week-to-week. 

What was the highlight of the workout?

The highlight was enjoying the beauty of the morning before the heat and the ‘hustle and bustle’ of the day kicked in. And of course, the quick dip in the ocean at the end!

Were there any unexpected surprises?

Only how quickly the morning went. I found it interesting that there was a diversity of personalities and a range of fitness levels. 

How is Trek Training different from what you might expect at an average gym?

Being outdoors in the fresh air. It felt a lot more like adventuring and catching up with friends than actually exercising. 

What do you love about being a Wild Woman?

Living life to its fullest. Life is a gift and should be embraced and lived! Sometimes I can get caught up with the busyness of life - with work and being a mum. Being a Wild Woman is a reminder to get outdoors and ‘top myself up’.

Join our NEW Trek Training session on Sydney's Northern Beaches with coach Susan on Thursday mornings from 6:30am-8:30am. If that time or location doesn't work for you - don't stress. We've got heaps of sessions to choose from, check out our timetable here.
