You are a Role Model to someone looking up to you…Show them how awesome you are by becoming a Change Fitness WHANAU JOURNEY Member! We train together, support each other and have fun along the way. We have members just starting out on their journey who begin training to build their fitness, we have members who have been training for years and are looking to push their limits and see how far they can go and we have members of all levels in between stepping forward on their personal journey to complete a Half Ironman. What we all have in common is that we want to improve our health & fitness, self belief and we want to support each other being a part of something bigger than just ourselves. Being a positive Role Model is much more motivating. You will always find someone to inspire you in WHANAU JOURNEY. The Role Model Community is strong!

As a WHANAU JOURNEY Member  you will be able to reach out and connect with other members through the WHANAU JOURNEY Members Facebook Group Page to organise homework session, coffee catch ups, to share your success or just to show some support to the rest of your whanau.

WHANAU JOURNEY Members will have access to our members Resource library with a new tip added every month.
