Just Loving Life – 36.7lbs and Counting 😊

Posted on by Ricky in fat loss Leave a comment

Lisa’s Story So Far …

I joined the 6 week transformation programme in January 16

Feeling rubbish about myself having had 2 babies within 2 years… 😫

I felt fat and unfit… 😫

I did 2 further 6 week programmes between March and August 2016 😜

Then joined as a twice a week member for the next 6 months… 😘

In Feb 2017 I joined on a full membership…. 💙

I steered clear of the Thursday cardio class as felt I wouldn’t be able to manage the sessions …  😂

Now I go most Thursdays! ❤️

Although my weight has fluctuated I’ve now lost a total of 36.7 lbs… 😊

 

I feel leaner, more confident, fitter and stronger and I’ve made some fab friends…  👏

I bloody love Fitterbody Ladies Bootcamp!!  💕

We Should All Love Ourselves More!

Posted on by Ricky in mindset Leave a comment

After the horrible events over the weekend and watching the Manchester concert last night, it made me think about how I feel a lot.

Us Ladies are so hard on ourselves.

I don’t know why, but we have…

Unrealistic expectations…

We compare ourselves to unrealistic images…

We have a want to be that ‘perfect 10’, or a certain weight…

Watching the story unfold on Friday night into Saturday morning made me sit and really think about how lucky I am, how grateful I am…

How different things could be…

If I lived somewhere else…

If I had been in the wrong place at the wrong time…

But what it did make me do was to remember the love I have for all my friends and family…

And most importantly my love for my life and me.

I may not be perfect in anyone’s eyes, but I have learned to love me, my body and the amazing things it can do.

You need to remember, especially if you are a mum, or a nan, or an aunt, or a godmother…

You are amazing 🙂

Your body has done amazing things 🙂

And you should love yourself.

And you should only challenge yourself to be better today than you were yesterday, or last week, or month, or year.

Not compare yourself to anyone else.

Have a lovely day 🙂

Sharing Our Ladies Success – 60 Second Interview With Charlee

Posted on by Ricky in goals Leave a comment

Hi Charlee                                                                                                                                                Charlee Before

Firstly, well done on your achievements so far at Fitterbody Bootcamp. A fantastic start to the new fitter you – you should be really proud of yourself.  I personally have loved watching you grow with confidence week on week and you getting fitter, faster and stronger. And last but no means least, your body shape changing dramatically!

Tell me something about yourself that our Ladies won’t know:

I have 3 children 12, 5 & 1.

I didn’t actually join fitter bodies to lose weight (although I needed to).

I have had a really rubbish year and was struggling to cope with the stress I was under.  My Doctor offered me some tablets for anxiety & stress.

It was my mum who suggested I should try exercise as a way to help me deal with things.

And in doing so, it’s completely changed my outlook – both mentally and physically.

You are looking amazing, tell us about your goals and achievements so far:

I have dropped from squeezing into 18-20 size clothes to a comfortable 12- 14 in bottoms and a 10-12 on top. Buying my first size 10 top this week felt amazing – I don’t even think I was a size 10 at school!!

What is it that you enjoy most about bootcamp?

I love the variation – I have never done two days the same.

I love being pushed to lift heavier and do things I didn’t ever think I could do.

And the ladies – I have met some really lovely people who have helped along the way.

How much better do you feel about yourself?                                                                                  Charlee Now

There’s no words to describe how good it feels to not feel like the frumpy fat friend anymore.

I feel more confident and happy in myself which then works its way in to all aspects of my life.

I have a lot more get up and go as well and have even had the family out on walks, bike rides and even running.

What’s next for you?

I really want to be able to run.

When I joined end of January I couldn’t even run for one minute on a treadmill without feeling sick.

I’ve now got up to 45 mins without stopping.

I want to crack 10k..

and then a half marathon…

and then a marathon.

The resistance training and cardio have really helped improve my muscle tone and stamina so fingers crossed I can get there!

If you could make one recommendation to someone considering joining Fitterbody Ladies, what would that be?

Do it – but take measurements and record your body fat.

My first 3 weeks the scales didn’t reflect my hard work and I was gutted.

Usually this is the point I give up a diet or exercise routine.

But by seeing my measurements come down and I lost 2.5% body fat…. that kept me going and got me to where I am now!

The scales aren’t the be all and end all!

Charlee is a beautiful lady inside & out, who I know will continue to grow in her fitness journey 😊

Look In The Mirror!

Posted on by Ricky in goals, Uncategorized Leave a comment

We have some amazing results and week in week out I see the smiles growing as the weight drops off.

But are you smiling?

No?

• Look in the mirror and ask yourself why?
• Are you being honest about your nutrition?
• Are you exercising?
• Are you doing something else when life gets in the way and you can’t make a class or session?
• Are you putting in 100% effort?

I know how hard the journey is and understand what you are going through. It was a 14 month journey for me but all the hard work has been made worthwhile as I have achieved my goals 🙂

If you need some help to get on track and start reaching some of your goals, please email me and we can get you booked in for a free trial session.

I would love 100’s of responses to this post.

I would love to see some of you at Bootcamp.

I would love to be able to post some more amazing success stories about you!

Make me happy 🙂

Shut Up And Take Some Responsibility!

Posted on by Ricky in goals, Uncategorized Leave a comment

As I stood there on the sad step, which I do very rarely, I knew that my nutrition has not been in line with my goals.

Now at this point it’s very easy for me to tell myself, moaning, that:

All the hard I do training wise is not working;

Or that I am eating well 80% of the time;

So what’s the problem?

But I need to take a reality check!

Stop my Moaning

And be honest with myself

And take some responsibility.

It is only me (or you) who can make any changes!

It is only me (or you) who can face the reality of what is happening.

Be honest with yourself

Because it’s only you that your cheating.

Have a fabulous day 🙂

Flawed

Posted on by Ricky in Articles, fat loss, food, goals, health, mindset Leave a comment

Flawed?

I’m on holiday and not working, but sitting by the pool today I read a really good book, Flawed by Cecelia Ahern, one of my favourite authors.

In the closing acknowledgements she says if there is one message I hope this book portrays, it’s this; none of us are perfect.

Let’s not pretend we are.

Let’s us not be afraid that we are not.

Let us not label others and pretend we are not the same.

Let us all know that to be human is to be flawed.

Now whilst Cecelia is not referring to how we  look, as I people watched round the pool all afternoon, I see ladies from many different European countries, of all ages, all different shapes and sizes, some mums, some grandparents, some in tiny bikinis, some in full swimsuits, some overly conscious, some not with a care…

But it did make me think, what is perfect?

Why is size 10 perfect? Or even size 8 or 6?

Why do we aspire to look like the images portrayed in magazines or on TV? That perfect size or perfect shape?

Looking around, it’s certainly not average, the opposite in fact.

What we need to learn ladies is to love ourselves for who and what we are. And the only aspiration we should have is to be better today than we was yesterday, better this week than last week.

To be fitter, faster, stronger.

Perfection is not paramount.

I’m happy to be flawed!

Just be you 🙂

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

Posted on by Ricky in goals, Uncategorized Leave a comment

In our quest for greatness the road is often rough, but we must overcome our fear of the unknown and have absolute courage. Nothing in life that’s worth having comes easy. #LewisHamilton

We often share amazing stories with you of our Ladies fabulous long term successes. But these long-term goals are made up of many short-term objectives. We focus on these daily with the ladies, whether its lifting a heavier weight, running further, doing more reps or simply achieving a first like completing press-ups on toes – we always celebrate 🙂

This morning we had an epic upper body session where I had the total pleasure of high fiving every single one of the Ladies for achieving a first.

As I said quite a lot during the session, give it a go, what’s the worst that can happen?

So many smiling pink faces left today.

If you want to come to try something new and achieve something that will make you feel amazing, simply drop me an email and we can get you booked in for a trial session.

Have a great day 🙂

Sharing Our Ladies Success – 60 sec Interview with Jo

Posted on by Ricky in Success Leave a comment

Hi Jo

Firstly, well done on your fantastic achievements so far at Fitterbody Bootcamp.

You are looking fantastic, tell us about your goals and what you have achieved so far:

My pre-christmas goal was to lose two stone, which I hit on the 22nd December, just in time!! I’ve now upped my game to 3 stone and I have 6lbs to go!

What is it that you enjoy most about bootcamp?

I have loved, almost every minute of Fitter Bodies Bootcamp. The people, the relaxed, encouraging atmosphere and Julie who has really kept me motivated throughout.

How much better do you feel about yourself?

I tend to do the 6am class and to be honest most mornings I am still half asleep and look horrendous but that’s cool, no one cares, everyone smiles and we support each other get the best out of a session.

What’s next for you?

I’m going to keep going once I hit three stone, I just find short, more reachable goals work for me and I’ve not just lost weight, i’m fitter, happy and more confident.

I’ve lost 36.5lbs so far. That’s equivalent to your average microwave, the weight of cheese one American persons eats in a year, or 2 Maltese dogs! That feels good! 🙂

If you could make one recommendation to someone considering joining Fitterbody Ladies, what would that be?

Just go for it!

I’m sure you will agree – WOW just WOW – an absolutely amazing transformation.

Jo should be very proud.  She is fabulous to have in sessions and always gives 100% and still flashes us that gorgeous smile even when she’s hot and sweaty at the end 🙂
