Thank you for the music

Since embarking on Refuel, I have been lucky enough to start meeting amazingly talented musicians. Music has always been so important to me, but it’s something I often find myself not dedicating nearly enough time to. Music is the one thing that can always drive me to tears – there’s something about it that resonates deep within, something which I can’t even explain myself but there’s an emotion that emerges which I really can’t control.

Launching Refuel hasn’t been easy, and it’s going to be a long haul to get people to love it as much as I do, but every time I’m lacking motivation I listen to my favourite music, and I remember again how much of an effect it can have on the mind and emotions, and I know through Refuel I can bring that kind of emotion to other people too.

Musicians dedicate everything they have to their craft – I can’t even express how much I admire them for how much time and hard work they put in, to bring something truly beautiful to other people.

Although some people may at first see Refuel as another fitness craze, this really isn’t what I intended it to be. Refuel is many things, and I find it difficult myself to describe it just in one sentence – that’s why body and mind seemed the best choice if I must give a summary. Yes, the body is being trained, but at the same time Refuel is a platform for people to reconnect with how powerful music can be, and how we often forget exactly how much work and dedication is put into that music that we so often ‘ignorantly’ hear during our day to day lives.

In conclusion, I’d like to say thank you so much to the musicians I’ve been working with so far, and to those I’ll hopefully be working with in the future! Here’s a link to a piece which I absolutely love listening to when I need inspiration and motivation: https://youtu.be/mJ_fkw5j-t0

Updates

Launch of Weekly Refuel Sessions!

One of the main pieces of feedback I’ve had from the Refuel sessions so far is “I wish the sessions were more often”. Obviously amazing feedback to have and I’m very excited to be able to announce that from November they will be! Weekly Refuel sessions will run throughout November, every Wednesday evening, 18:45-19:45 at Kapelle am Urban in Kreuzberg.

The room at Kapelle am Urban is a former chapel that belonged to the hospital which used to be on the site – the room has so much character, with beautiful architecture; I could see straight away that it would be a great fit for Refuel.

Places for the Refuel sessions can now be purchased on the site, so that not only is it easier to reserve a place, but there’s also no longer a need to remember to bring cash on the day (just an exercise mat).

I’m really looking forward to welcoming so many more people to Refuel and to experience it more often myself – my body and mind most definitely feel clearer, stronger and more connected afterwards. Hope to see you in November!

Eines der wichtigsten Feedbacks, die ich bisher von den Refuel-Sitzungen hatte, ist “Ich wünschte, die Sitzungen wären öfter”. Unglaubliches Feedback zu haben, und ich freue mich sehr zu verkünden, dass ab November werden es so sein! Wöchentliche Refuel-Sitzungen finden im November, jeden Mittwochabend, 18:45-19:45 in der Kapelle am Urban in Kreuzberg statt.

Der Raum in Kapelle am Urban ist eine ehemalige Kapelle, die zu dem Krankenhaus gehörte, das früher auf dem Gelände war – der Raum hat so viel Charakter, mit schöner Architektur; Ich konnte sofort sehen, dass es gut zu Refuel passen würde.

Plätze für die Refuel-Sitzungen können jetzt auf der Website gekauft werden, so dass nicht nur Plätze einfach reserviert werden können, sondern dass man nicht mehr daran denken muss, Bargeld am Tag mitzubringen (muss nur noch eine Übungsmatte mitbringen).

Ich freue mich sehr darauf, viele mehr Menschen bei Refuel willkommen zu dürfen, und auch Refuel öfter mich selbst zu erleben – mein Körper und Geist fühlen sich auf jeden Fall klarer und stärker nachher. Ich freue mich auf Ihnen im November zu sehen!
