7 years ago I struggled with an injury after taking up running and yoga and consulted a personal trainer, who not only took my body beyond the concerns I had at the time, but changed the perception I had of personal trainers, weight lifting and the impact fitness could have on ones life.
My clients, who work so damn hard, who put in the hours and make the sacrifices while successfully living hectic lives!! Also people that I’ve never met, who send me emails and messages telling me how their lives have changed, just by drawing inspiration from my habits and lifestyle.
COMMITTING TO A FITNESS ROUTINE-
I’d encourage anyone to make little sustainable changes until it becomes habit and build up on that. I’m not one for extreme anything and fads. I’m about longevity and maintenance. Pace yourself and follow a plan. Plans are geared toward progression. Don’t focus on weight loss and the aesthetic, focus on getting fitter and stronger and before you know it the weight is off and you enjoy this new person you have become, and its all so effortless. People should stop thinking weight loss and fitness is a battle. It is not.
ESSENTIALS FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE-
* Whole foods
* And a Plan.
The kettlebell swing. There is nothing like it!
My client testimonials
Every woman should experience the joys of living in a healthy strong body, it’s a gift I want all women to receive and I want to guide them along the way. I always tell my girls to love their bodies, give it gratitude and look at it how far they’ve come and to look at all their strengths. To enjoy the journey and love themselves.
