I have never really been into health and fitness – I was rubbish at sport at school and went to the gym every so often with my friends when I was younger but didn’t really know what I was doing. I usually ended up doing a class or sitting on the bike for a bit.
I have never been a dieter – I’ve always been lucky in that I could pretty much eat what I wanted and I didn’t look too bad, or put on weight. I’ve never been bigger than I size 10. As you get older you start to see changes in your body and I decided I didn’t want to become overweight, and that I would like to get fit and be proud of what I saw in the mirror. So I thought I’d take up running – well that was a disaster as I ended up with shin splints!
I have always admired bodybuilding from afar but had never had the courage to have a go at lifting weights properly. It was my fiance who encouraged me to contact Kelly – so I did! It I started training with Kelly when she first opened Studio1 fitness in May 2015. I did some PT sessions then jumped onto the 8 week ladies courses – and I’ve been there ever since! Even my fiance joined Studio1 fitness on the men’s courses and has PT’s too.
I love weight training and I love Studio1 fitness! I have learnt so much from Kelly over the past four years. I have completely changed my outlook to health and fitness and it has become an important part of my life.
I have grown in confidence, I have grown in strength, and I have grown a whole new group of friends.
As I have grown personally I have been lucky enough to be part of Studio1’s growth too. The first fitness model course was a great experience, but now I have completed 3 and the last one was better than all of the others – Kelly makes it a unique and fantastic experience which is better each time. I used all that I had learned and really got the benefit from focusing myself to be the best I could be.
The way I train and eat has now become a lifestyle. It’s not a fad diet or fitness fad where you pile it all back on at the end. Kelly and the team teach you how to eat, train, and grow as a person. The support is fantastic. Whether you want to lose weight or grow muscle, or learn the correct form – Kelly and the team will tailor the programme to your needs, giving you the tools that you can apply to reach your goal.
I could take what I’ve learned and apply it on my own now – but where would be the fun in that? Plus I want to learn more! I love being around like minded people who help motivate me to achieve my goals. Long may it continue! 🙂 xxx
