Marc and Craig started training at the Motive8 gym at the start of the year. They bring a smile and some banter; they work hard, and -more importantly – praise for most of our music choices (although we’re not entirely sure about theirs – they requested Peter Andre’s Mysterious Girl afterall)! It was a no brainer when we voted these early morning regulars as our February’s members of the month!

February's Members of the Month

How Long Have You Trained At Motive8 For?

C & M : 4 weeks

What Were Your Goals When You Joined And Have They Changed?

C: To improve my all around fitness and just to enjoy going to the gym again.

M: To lose weight and being able to see some abs again!

Why Do You Enjoy Working Out At Motive8?

C: It has to be the people. There’s a friendly, welcoming atmosphere that you just don’t get with the bigger commercial gyms

M: Its totally different to normal gyms, its really friendly, the trainers engage with you and you are around people that actually want to be there.

What Keeps You Motivated?

C: Joe (Personal Trainer) singing to one of his many boy band tracks he play’s aloud in the gym – truly motivational stuff!!

M: The fact that I’ve (deliberately) publicised my goals to everyone and I hate failure (and of course Craig!)


We love their camaraderie and the way they keep themselves motivated. So far they have only missed 2 days in the gym since they started – keep it up boys!
