Hey, it’s Scott here, and it’s been an exciting start to the week with class schedules getting completed for Best Body Mandurah, getting our wonderful Instructors fully back on board, and racing around ensuring everything is ready for our grand re-opening this Saturday!

I hope you’re excited too, to get back into a routine that helps you get back to your best physically and mentally!

My favourite part of today is announcing the winner of the Best Body 3 month membership (love doing something positive during these challenging times – we’ve been hit hard, but we still want to make good things happen for you!!!)

But before I get to that, I want you to know…

The Main Purpose of Best Body

The main purpose of Best Body is to help you get pain free, build a better body, and become the best version of YOU – physically and mentally – by getting better core strength, flexibility, tone, and achieve your ideal body weight in a supportive and encouraging environment – and to feel good about making yourself a priority – ultimately so you live your best life in a body you love, without the setbacks that can be prevented.

After prioritising everything and everyone else first for years, and dealing with a lot of challenges that life throws at us, we believe you deserve to have someone in your corner caring for you!

There were many missed opportunities in my Nan’s life from health and medical professionals, so a part of our mission is to make sure we create and give those opportunities to others through the latest and best evidence based advice, coaching and support, and a holistic approach. We want to put an end to preventable suffering in the world!

Best Body was created after it became clear to us that…

  • Too many people suffer from back and hip problems, shoulder issues, knee pain, neck pain and migraines unnecessarily
  • Most people put themselves towards the bottom of their priority list – which leaves them exhausted and lethargic both mentally and physically
  • Too many people are not comfortable in their own skin and feel guilty about spending time doing something good for themselves

How to Access the Re-opening Membership Special for Best Body Mandurah

Firstly, if you want to re-activate your previous membership now, then email now with your start date.

Secondly, we are giving away 10 Restart Memberships which include 4 classes per week for only $50 (only $12.50 per class). This special will never be offered again and is only available prior to this Saturday the 6th of June (or until no spots are left).

Usually the cost is $38 for one class, $50 for two, or $60 for three. I know some places charge $65+ for small group Pilates and much more for a 1 on 1 session. But RESTART members at Mandurah can join for $50 per week and do 4 classes per week ($12.50 per class).


With that said, I might as well get to the best part…


We had SO MANY ridiculously good entries for the Best Body  Membership contest. And THANK YOU for all the amazing and thoughtful entries.

Picking ONE winner was very difficult. But after lots of reading and thinking yesterday, we’ve chosen a winner. So many entries would have been worthy winners!!

Anyway, if you get a chance, it would mean a lot to me if you could take a quick sec and congratulate the winner in the comments section on this page.


“I’ve never been one to put myself first. That’s always seemed selfish to me. So, for the last 20 years, I’ve put my husband and his needs first. I planned my life around him and his schedule. And that made making time for me, my physical and mental health difficult. Then. In June last year, our marriage disintegrated after I found out he was having an affair. With a younger, skinnier work colleague (what a cliche, hey?). I was locked out of our home and she moved in. I lost everything. I went through a very tough time mentally. Physically too. I had a total breakdown and lost a lot of weight – but not in a healthy way. But through the love and support of family, friends and workmates (and a fantastic psychologist!) I came through it.

It was around 6 months after the split that I decided, for the first time in my life, to put myself first. I’m all I have now. The success of my life, and my happiness is my responsibility. No-one else’s. Pretty scary! I had lost some weight, but wanted to lose more. To be healthy. But more importantly, I wanted to get STRONG. I also suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis and know that exercise is so important for that. I was walking past your Mandurah studio one day and thought “I want to do that”. So I did. I took the plunge and signed up. I absolutely loved the classes. You have no idea how amazing that is for me! I have always hated exercise. But I loved this. It made me feel healthy and strong – even when my muscles were aching the next day! But it also gave me a real boost to my self esteem. I was doing this for me – proving to myself that I was worth it. No longer comparing myself to the other woman. I was taking time out and switching off. It’s so good to have to concentrate on not falling off the reformer and not having time to think about anything else!

The closure of the studio was so disappointing, as I was just starting to get to know some people, which I’ve always struggled with, as I’m quite shy. But I totally understood why it was necessary. I admit, I’ve found myself slipping back into some old habits from “before”, while being in quarantine at home. I can’t wait to get started again and continue my journey into my new future as a strong, healthy, self confident single woman!”

    Congratulations Susan! You are definitely worthy of this prize! I hope you continue to move forward and get all YOU want out of life. Stay strong and positive. ☺️

  2. Dawn Bell

    Susan, you deserve this. I understand how hard it is to be selfish as I’ve always put me second too. As L’oreal also says “Because you’re worth it” and we are!

  3. Keryn Channing

    Congratulations Susan, a worthy winner (though i am jealous -haha). Hope to catch up with you when we get back – I can’t wait for BestBody to open again either – my Corona body needs help!

    Its always a bummer when you don’t get picked and you wonder why your story wasn’t good enough, but in this instance whilst Ii was bummed I didn’t win, I certainly think the winner was a better choice! Congratulations Susan and good luch with what will be your new amazing journey to the best you, you can be! Your story has inspired me to go and check out the studio and get started on my journey. I have put my family first for a long time and now its my time!
