My Fitness Soul journey began in October 2016, eight months after the birth of my second child.
My friend and I had discussed our desire to get fit, lose weight and regain our pre-baby bodies, but we were big on talk but short on action.
Then one day I was sent a link to the Fitmamas classes. One of the perceived barriers to getting fit was having the kids with me 24/7 and the Fitmamas classes solved that issue instantly! At first, I was worried about how the kids would get on, but they settled into it quickly and began to look forward to the classes. I particularly enjoyed the community feel and friendly atmosphere at Fitness Soul, and I found myself wanting more. I joined the early morning fit club, three times a week then went on to tacfit, combat conditioning, kettlebells, Konga and HIIT, and even went along for the weekend away. I found each class challenging but rewarding with each instructor offering something different in style and content but all equally valuable.
The instructors had belief in my abilities (even when I didn’t!) and it spurred me on to achieve more than I realised I could.
As a result, my body started to change- I lost fat, gained muscle and my cardiovascular fitness improved. People started commenting on how good I was looking. I felt stronger and more confident. I still have plenty of work to do, but I have confidence that with the ever constant help and encouragement of the instructors and fellow members, I will get there.
Thank You Fitness Soul!
