Hey, it’s Tarryn here, and I’m getting ready to open the founding memberships to Best Body very soon! I hope you’re getting ready to ROCK the best version of you. Anyways, I’ve got some great stuff in this blog post for you today….like…
- I’m announcing the winners of the Best Body Bassendean Membership Contest.
- A brief intro to what Best Body is about (at its core – pardon the pun).
- The Main Purpose of Best Body
The main purpose of Best Body is to HELP YOU become the best version of you – by getting better core strength, flexibility, tone, and achieve healthy weight loss in a supportive and encouraging environment – and feel good about making yourself a priority.
Best Body was created after it became clear to us that…
Too many people suffer from back 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
Anyways, Best Body is, quite literally, a project. And over the course of a minimum of 12 weeks – you’ll be building a better body and a better you. I will be too!
In fact, I’ll be selecting someone’s journey…and turning it into a successful inspiring case study. To help others earlier on in their journeys know what is possible.
We won’t only be teaching Best Body Bassendean members how to build a better body.
We’ll be showing them as well.

Winners of the Best Body Membership Contest Announced
We had SO MANY ridiculously good entries for the Best Body Bassendean Membership contest. And thank YOU for all the amazing and thoughtful entries.
Picking two winners was very difficult and I couldn’t do it. So I’ve decided to split it into 3 winners of 4 month memberships.
It’s a little delayed as we have had a little bit of a technical hiccup yesterday but it’s all good now.
But after lots of reading and thinking today, I’ve just chosen the winners.
Anyway, if you get a chance, it would mean a lot to me if you could take a quick sec and congratulate the winners in the comments section on the competition page – click here.
The reason I say this is because the membership would mean a lot to me because I have always been a average healthy person but over the past two years I have had three miscarriages and it has taken a toll on my body. It is hard to constantly lose the weight once it is on and also motivate myself in the first three months of pregnancy each time because of the lack of energy. I am positive that I can lose the weight again like I have in the past and I am currently back training.
I have been going to reformer classes in Mt Lawley but I live in bassendean so this would be an absolute dream.
This membership would be a lifesaver for me. I’m currently very overweight after a lifetime of dancing and horseriding, so this body is foreign to me. While I was never *skinny* (read: ballet instructors bemoaned my hips and boobs), I was ALWAYS fit. However, my back gave in after a fall too many in acro, and then that’s when I feel everything started falling apart. I hurt my back (badly) at work and had to go through the worker’s comp process, which was stressful and demeaning. Before that, my Dad got cancer and passed away, and just after, my uncle passed away of the same cancer and I felt like the rug had been pulled out from under me. As part of my rehab I was attending pilates and loved it – but life (and a deep depression) got in the way and left me unwilling to leave the house – which lead to binging, restricting, and repeating the cycle again and again.
I still have huge issues with my back and have massive self esteem issues. I’m a Type A in every way (a high achiever at work, organised in every other sense) and yet I hate my body – because I feel like we’ve equal parts let each other down – and I just need something to get me back into gentle exercise and into a better headspace, along with losing some weight so my periods settle down (I suffer from PCOS).
If I’m being honest, I’ll probably find a way to attend classes at the Basso location anyway… but I thought I’d enter this comp as well. I just need to hate myself less and I don’t know what else to do!
Wow, so many incredible and touching stories..as others have said Tarryn thanks so much for the very generous opportunity to apply. Seems like such a beautiful way to start things off, building a team of people that kinda know a little of each others stories and why we would all be there to make things better for ourselves, our families and our communities.
My story is a lot like others have shared – being knocked down hard by the sometimes heartbreaking pains that come with life and loving, working too hard for too long and continuously paying attention to myself last and never fully being able to hear or listen to my body and what it needs. Then I think it all came crashing down when after many years of the ups and downs of battling brain cancer, we lost my brother to it mid 2017, the night before his funeral we shockingly and suddenly lost my youngest brother too, then in March last year we lost my Step Dad. We’ve been a family in crisis all just floating like bits of shipwreck out at sea, all in a fog and taking turns at holding each other up and trying not to drown ourselves.
We are all only just starting to be able to see a little more clearly now. I am really feeling how important it is to be present and IN my best body, not only for myself but for my family and community too. I’m only just starting to be able to actually listen to my body again and hear what it needs.
The other things is I’m a teacher at a local high school in Bassendean and I feel deeply connected to the place and the people. The opportunity to be able to receive knowledge, guidance and support to build myself up again, in Bassendean, would be such a joy – time for me to fill up me so I can continue to get better, be better and pay it forward.
I think you knocked it out of the park when you said “A support squad to celebrate with you when life is going good, and to help pick you back up when life throws it’s challenges” I really wanna be part of that! I want to be in and be part of building this new ‘happy place’ in Bassendean.
Thanks for reading! Real people with real stories… Again, feel free to take a quick sec and congratulate the winners in the comments section on the competition page – click here.
