I started my fitness journey for the same reason as many of you have, or will do. Quite simply, I just wasn’t happy with my current lifestyle. As fun as going out and having more pizzas and pints than anything even remotely nutritious was, I was becoming more and more aware of the negative effects it was having on my body and my mood.
I wanted to make a change but I just didn’t have a clue where or how to start. I thought the gym was the obvious answer but honestly, I was SO scared the first few times I went in. I did get quite into it though – two classes a week and an hour on the treadmill almost every night. I felt good and I started to lose a little bit of weight but I was bored already and I wasn’t toning up or getting the shape I wanted.
A few months in I met Joe (my now fiancé) in an abs class of all places and it was then that things started to change. He introduced me to weight training and although nervous at first, it was such fund and I was hooked. He also encouraged me to eat more nutritious food and so quickly, I felt more energised and my body had started to change in ways I could never have imagined! My bum was higher, my core tighter, my legs stronger… but the biggest thing that changed was my confidence.
I continued for a while, loving every minute but thought it would be a good challenge to set myself a new goal that pushed me out of my comfort zone – a bodybuilding competition. So many people thought I was crazy (even I did at times!) and although a VERY unrealistic lifestyle and diet for me to sustain, it was a great experience. It was also what made me realise my passion for fitness and for coaching.
Throughout my competition prep and for quite some time after, I become so aware how damaging and influential social media and the fitness industry in general can be. We’re constantly bombarded by photos of females with tight abs, pert bums and ridiculously slim figures. These images are very hard to achieve and are often photo-shopped or filtered yet they still manage to makes us think less of ourselves if we don’t compare. The whole idea of this upset and frustrated me so much but it also became my motivation to launch the Female Fitness Programme!
Fitness doesn’t have to be incredibly dull and time consuming and your diet does not have so restrictive that you live of salads and shakes!
I launched the #FFP because I want to provide YOU with an HONEST, real and achievable approach to fitness. I want to help you realise your own potential and to find something that works for you and your lifestyle. And I want more than anything to show you that you can enjoy the best of both worlds; getting fitter and healthier and still having a social life. If you are ready and committed to making a change then ANYTHING is possible.
