That time of year to boost your results…

Last week saw the restart of our friendly group exercise sessions (fitcamp Kettering) with a difference!

Socially distanced Fitcamp! Having fun, keeping fit whilst staying safe!

As the only centre in Northamptonshire for delivering a community workout that encompasses high intensity interval resistance training for all levels, works on the overall body and strengthens the core, we were happy to get going again! We engage muscles you’ve probably not used in a long time !!

Although it felt a little strange with safety procedures in place, it was amazing how many past participants got back into the swing of it.

It’s all about the community. You also get nutrition support. Anybody can do it, whatever level you’re at. You only need to commit to the consistency and you’ll soon feel fitter again.

We still have a few more spaces available, however places are limited. You may , call us to reserve your place on 07725 685090 or secure your place below. Sessions are on Mondays at 6 30pm.

Where did that weight come from?

insta-ring-picThis happens to be a common question I get asked about!!! ‘I had the kids and over the years, and I have struggled to shift the weight” !!

It can be quite frustrating for a lot of people.  This is clearly one of the unfortunate realities of getting older that, as we get on in life, it is much harder to keep the weight off.

At one stage, one could get away with weekend overeating and binges at 20 or 30.  After that, it seems as if every bite finds a place on the body as one progresses into the next few decades of life.

The fact is we need less energy (calories) to survive at 50 than we did at 30’s or even 40’s and this decreases as we get older !!

So the big reason is down to our Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) which is influenced by our lean body mass, sex, age, hormones, etc. and how much energy is needed by the body to function, based on the fuel we give it.  Ultimately, as we get older, our metabolism slows down, which is impacted by our BMR.  This does not mean we cannot influence it to a degree.

Gone are the days when adults actively hunted and walked for miles, searching for food to put on the table.  Today, more and more adults live sedentary lifestyles and would only need to click a button to get food, use of ‘Drive Thrus’ etc.  Therefore, standard calorie intakes would need to be reduced.  One major solution is to take in food and drink that are highly nutritious and less calorific, including foods that will increase lean muscle tissue.  In addition, carry out exercises that will impact on strengthening muscles and a person’s BMR more effectively.  There are other ways to boost one’s metabolism effectively.

The ups and downs of my 90 day challenge…

This was my second wave of #thesixpackrevolution and it started in January. I was committed to sticking to plan. This time I felt much stronger and was ready to face the burpees!!

I knew it would not be easy though because there was a birthday and a couple of celebrations to add to the mix. Imagine being on holiday and being a total teetotaler! I was also in Italy where I would normally succumb to at least one or two delicious pasta dishes and melt in your mouth pizzas! Indeed I was told that Naples makes one of the best pizzas and I would be mad not to try them!

That beautiful holiday was one of my biggest temptations ever. We nevertheless enjoyed it unscathed! It helped that the accommodation was self catering and indeed, it was part of the masterplan, so that I could prepare my delicious, quick and healthy snacks. Eggs, chicken, fish, cottage cheese, olives and vegetables were easy to obtain from a supermarket nearby.

After all this was my lifestyle and I was determined not to let anything ruin my challenge. Breakfast and lunch were sorted as I had my Herbalife with me – Life saver!

Dinners were easier than I thought. The highlight of my day was to search for restaurants that made simple grilled chicken or fish and side veg. No desert for me but then I knew I would have meal number 6 back at the apartment. My husband as usual was very supportive and did not offer me wine or prossecco!

The workouts were fun and easy to do too! I remember doing the abs, daily squats and press ups and Spartan bodyweight challenge twice in our apartment in Sorrento and once at the gym in our Naples hotel.

So anyway after holidays, we came home and was faced with more celebrations when our daughter arrived home after a long trip! But again I put my lean team mentality cap back on and managed it. Meal prepping and freezer stocking up meant no room for temptations. On the night when we went out, I picked a delicious Thai seabass steamed dish with ginger and veg.

So all in all, I would say the most challenging wave for me but it was thrilling at the same time. There were not going to be any excuses. I was determined to go around and hop over the obstacles, as Scotty would say.

So to me, having a fairly high social life means I need my 90 Day Challenges to keep me in check. Here is to my next Challenge to start in May and I cannot wait. Join me….. Lets do it!


Janice… I almost gave up trying

pixlr_20161216164350380Janice, in her own words, ‘had given up hope trying to feel healthy again’ when she came to see me. She used to be very tired most of the time, and had a lot of issues with her health.  She could hardly walk unaided and certainly could not exercise or had the motivation or energy to do much by way of activity.

She was introduced to me by Maria, her carer in October 2016.  Since seeing me and improving her meals, the Herbalife nutrition and healthier lifestyle, her energy levels have improved and she now swims almost everyday.  She also does a full class of acqua aerobics.

Janice has since improved her metabolic age by 7 years younger than her actual age !
