Colin is our Member of the Month for June!
“From my early years at boarding school through the army, casinos, night clubs and numerous sporting and entertainment venues to today, I have found my escape from the working trudge of the day through the mind cleansing relief of a good workout.
Having spent my first 20 years out of school living in over 20 different locations, that exercising took me from the freezing cold of winter in Canberra and the Salisbury plains of England to the dry heat of Broome and the sweltering humidity of Townsville. Numerous broken bones and torn ligaments later, my one great learnings in life has been that to the key to a balanced lifestyle is an active mind, a contented soul and of course a healthy and fit body. While I’m pleased to have left the sand dunes of Portsea, the rainforests of Tully and the parade grounds of many locations behind, I am pleased to have found a more gentle haven for my daily workout – even if the dulcet tones of certain instructors provide brief recollections of my past Physical Training Instructors reminding me that their Grandmothers could do better.”
GHRC has become my balance after my day which I spend filling my soul in the delights of artistic endeavours, and exercising my mind as I labour on the exploits of my characters in the fourth instalment of my book series.
For all members, as my daughters continually remind me, peace and love everyone.”
