Feel Good Fitness WA Beginners Mandurah grand opening

Personal trainers Steve and Hayley Thompson.

Feel Good Fitness WA Beginners will open its doors to the public at their grand opening on Sunday, July 7.

The grand opening will kick off with local MP Andrew Hastie cutting a ribbon at 9am, the rest of the day is set to be packed with plenty of special offers, activities for children, prizes, live demonstrations, and food trucks.

The idea and concept brought to life by, husband and wife, Hayley and Steve Thompson who claim the centre is an Australian first.

The personal trainers, with over 30 years of experience, said there was plenty of commercial gyms and CrossFit centres around Mandurah but nothing dedicated to those self-conscious beginners.

“Hayley and I got our thinking hats on to [brainstorm] all the things a Beginner would need to feel comfortable to walk into an area, exercise, come out the other side feeling good about themselves and want to go back again,” Mr Thompson said.

“Lots of talking and throwing ideas out there between ourselves and we came up with our beginner only fitness class concept.

“This would be a breeding ground for beginners to inspire each other.”

The passionate personal trainers said the beginners only facility has no mirrors, no bodybuilders, no intimidation, and no judgment.

“Beginners are self-conscious enough as it is without having to stare back at themselves in their reflection, only to get despondent.” Mr Thompson said.

“Support is critical and [so is] knowledge, every class we [are] going to run would have a personal trainer running the group to assist with technique, support, and encouragement with the beginner clients.”
