MADE and Me [Trying new things]

New experiences, stepping out of your comfort zone and finding joy in trying new things. Not being afraid to walk in a room and train alone. It can be nerve wracking. I know I have felt anxious, and certainly did when I first started to train at MADE but that very quickly went as the environment is so welcoming. The trainers are attentive and those that train at MADE are so warm and friendly.

For me that’s how I am feeling after the past few week’s training with the team. I feel like I’ve now joined what the team call the MADE movement. And let’s not forget the feeling after you have tried something new, don’t you just love that sense of achievement? Which I think is so important for staying motivated to train.

And so, in a follow up to my last post here are a few things I have been trying at MADE…

Lunch at MADE Cafe & Smoothies

Breakfast was delicious so I thought I’d try lunch. And just like breakfast it was a taste sensation. The smoothies are so refreshing, perfect for after a sweaty Gym class. The Wellness Café avoids refined sugars and makes healthy eating fun and inspiring. I talked about the Cafe in my last post so I’m trying not to say the same again. The Cafe has so much to offer. The range of food and drink available is extensive, healthy, fun and so so good. Good to eat, but great to look at.

You can visit the Café as a non member. But of course you can also become a member and enjoy many many more benefits. If nothing else you should visit the Café – you’ll get a sense of what it is the Centre as a whole has to offer.



For me this is where MADE stands out. From booking classes on the App, to scanning in on entry to register for your class, having a safe space to put away your belongings to the shower room. I actually look forward to a morning class as the toiletries at MADE are such a treat. Simple touches but ones that make a difference. And unlike many gyms there is no charge for using a locker.

In each post I write I plan to add in a Top Tip. One that will help you to enjoy your time at MADE or even a tip that I’ve picked up along the way from my own training. And so this week’s top tip is…

Never miss a Monday. The last two weeks I missed my usual training on a Monday evening. It was the wrong decision and set me on a downward spiral for my training all week. Never miss a Monday!
