Diverse, energetic and challenging......

Can you believe that January is almost over! January normally drags, however, this year it seems to have flown by! Been busy and getting older might have something to do with it too! It has been great being back after Christmas, seeing new people as well as regulars putting their all into the sessions each week.

I was away with friends at the weekend, which was lovely and included walks (to the pub) great food and even better company. I honestly don't think there is anything better than spending time with and surrounding yourself with the right people. People who make you laugh, people who are there when things are tough and people who motivate you to be the best version of yourself without trying to compete. Surrounding yourself with the right people has such a positive impact on your happiness and energy.

Last week I shared the experience of a couple of clients and today I want to share the experience of a couple more. This week it involves our international client Gillian, who has been over for a couple of weeks and made a visit to our boxing session last night before she flies back this weekend!

Surround yourself with positive people and see how your energy improves!

When apprehension evaporates with sweat!

Mid to late January is normally when people's new year resolutions tend to get broken, dry January lasted, for some, only a few days, the routine of getting up earlier to be productive is broken and I have found it hard to get back into the routine of writing a blog! If I am honest I feel like I have had a bit of a block when it comes to content......until this week! I have been gathering client testimonials and reading them has given me a boost and put a smile on my face, as the people who come to my sessions are what make what I do so enjoyable.

Since being back after the Christmas break I have had new people sign up, even though they struggled to walk after the taster ;) It can feel scary coming to something new, even for the avid fitness fanatic, let alone someone who hasn't exercised in years! For someone starting after the new year can be twice as hard, this is normally when most people feel they are the most unfit they have been. Add to that, the regular exercises are normally kitted out in their new gear (from Christmas presents) so can look even scarier to a newbie!

Everyone has been a newbie at some point, whether that is in their job, a new town or starting a new exercise regime.

Today I wanted to share with you the experience of a couple of my clients, see what they have to say instead of me for a change! This week is the story of Stacey and John, watch out over the next few weeks for what some of my other clients have to say....including an international one!

Capture your Happy moments

I have just sat down in my second office (a well known coffee shop) to write my first blog of 2020 and I realised that it has been over 2 months since I wrote my last one! Not great to say that I used to do them on a weekly basis!

I actually felt bad that I hadn't stuck to my weekly routine for the last two months of the year! Plus I missed my weekly coffee shop blogging as I am very much a people watcher and forgot how entertaining this can be! (apart from the guy sat behind me who thinks that the whole of Huddersfield need to listen to his phone conversation!!)

A few years ago I read about doing a yearly 'happiness jar' - at the beginning of the year you have an empty jar and over the year fill it with notes, memories on things that have made you happy, smile, laugh and things you have achieved. Then after New Year you open the jar reflect on all the positive things that happened that year! Instead of getting drawn into the negative New Year mindset of things that didn't happen or things you could have done better.

I could have wrote a blog in the last two months of 2019, however, when I look back at all the blogs I did write this out-ways the two month the fact that I am back 'on it' in early 2020 is an achievement.

The same goes with Health & Fitness, don't beat yourself up because you (like most other people) let diet and exercise slide over the festive year. You might be sat breathing in so those extra pounds can fit into your skinny jeans, however, remember those festive slides are probably occasions which put a smile on your face! Accept the blips, accept that you are human and most of all accept that you will soon get back into your routine.

If you are reading this and you never had a health & fitness routine in 2019, then it doesn't mean you can't start. Create a habit early on so when December is upon us again you can enjoy the festive season with a smile on your face.

Fit 4 Force sessions were back in full swing on Monday and I think there are a few aching muscles amongst the bootcampers this week. I would love to hear about more aching muscles and see people enjoy exercise this year, so as a special offer if you sign up in January you will receive a FREE copy of the 21 day LifeForce transformation plan.
