Brad McLaren and Bianca Mendina

Hi my name is Bianca & I go to Warrior with my partner Brad.

We all have very busy lives these days & our family is no exception, having 3 x young kids, both of us work full time (I travel away for work every 2nd week), my partner Brad coaches a local senior AFL team as well as the AFL Suns Jnr academy. So exercising fell off our priority map until we realised that our energy levels were starting to affect our moods, our health & our relationship.

Brad & I both went to our local gym & lost some 15kgs each, but got bored with the format & knew if we didn’t find something different that we would “fall off the wagon”. That’s when I came across the Facebook page for Warrior Performance Centre.

Luke & Rebecca are ridiculously professional & passionate about what they do & have pushed us to levels that we never dreamed we could achieve & were also flexible in designing a program that suited my unusual work schedule. I couldn’t even do 5 push ups on my knees when I first started & the other day I managed 250 on my toes in a workout!

We do our sessions before the sun comes up with a group of fantastic people, which we now claim as friends, that all encourage each other, whilst having a laugh. Which is better than sticking earphones in & being left to your own devices on equipment you’re not shown how to use. The sessions are by appointment so it’s never overcrowded & you’re never waiting for equipment.

Since starting with Warrior, I have lost 2 x dress sizes & I have a man that I absolutely love to check out as I see him getting fitter & stronger, it has improved our relationship, because we aren’t exhausted now by the end of the day.

My personal favourite is the feeling I get when I beat him at the WWOWs….and boy do I love to rub it in!
