Life at our Sydney 12WBT Headquarters has been busy, that’s for sure! Our team have been kicking goals in AND out of the office. Welcome to the first instalment of our new Behind the Scenes blog series. We’ll be sharing all the goings-on from our 12WBT staffers – if there’s anything you’d like to know, leave a comment below!

… And Say Goodbye to One!
We’re sadly saying bon voyage to our wonderful head of finance, Mel Kay. Mel’s one of our longest-standing team members and has been with us since the early days, but she’s off to London for new adventures. All the best Mel!
We Kicked Some Serious Goals
We created a Milestone Board in the 12WBT HQ for our team to celebrate 1 MILLION KILOS lost! It allowed us to share all the awesome things the team’s done while working for 12WBT. And have there been some BIG achievements!
- Julie completed a half marathon
- Chelsea lost 25kg and is completing her Certificate IV in Fitness
- Amanda smashed her first marathon
- Susie completed the Triathlon Pink and raised money for breast cancer
- Gabi received her CrossFit Trainer Certificate
We Congratulated Our Running Expert Greta!
Greta, our superstar running trainer totally smashed the women’s 4km BondiBarefoot Run, retaining her title. She told us: “We had so much fun! It was so tough in the soft sand!”
And a big congrats to Julie too, who ran – and finished! – her first ever barefoot run.
We Did the Mother’s Day Classic!
Our 12WBT staff were on the ground across the country at the Mother’s Day Classic, meeting existing 12WBTers and sharing the love! Thanks again to all the awesome volunteers who got up super-duper early to help out.
Fleur, Julie and their awesome Brisbane volunteers.
