SydFIT Health Turns 10

Standing on the Shoulders of Greats

We did it! This month we celebrate our 10 year anniversary at Sydfit Health Centre. We stood on the shoulders of giants. It would not be possible without those who came before us, stood beside us and especially those who lifted us up. In light of this, we will be profiling some of our partners and supporters this month as we celebrate 10 years of serving our members and community and creating a culture of champions. Thank you for being a part of SHC!

Angela Pause

You often don’t have all the answers to vision and mission that all the business books require of new enterprises . You just have a feeling inside and a vision in your heart that cant be put down on paper.

That’s where Angela Pause comes in. 10 years ago she shared her expertise, patience and gift for writing with me. Angela wrote some of my favourite articles including “Fighting for Meaning.”  She later helped our team craft our
12 rounds to a Culture of Excellence at SydFIT

Angela did not just want to write about something she did not understand, so she took up training and learning the art of boxing with us. One of my most memorable moments was when Angela was doing some “light” sparring with Natasha “The Nightmare ” Spence. At one point neither of these ladies wanted to give up the centre of the ring. It was like looking at 2 rams locking horns at the top of a mountain . They both ended up on the ground following a monumental struggle. It was epic!

The reason I am able to celebrate with my team 10 years of being in business is because we have stood on the shoulders of greats.

Haman Dowlatram

To this day I have never felt better than when I was strictly following his nutrition program. 20 years later I still use many of the principles he taught me. A simple one: stay away from pasta, milk, and yeast. I eat as many whole eggs as I want daily and I love butter….yep the real stuff!

I watched Haman Dowlatram grow his gym business from a tiny room to purchasing his own land and designing his own building. He has been a key motivator , teacher and mentor. The only time he will not meet with me is when he is busy golfing!
