How to stay motivated to create the biggest mind & body shift


Posted by Rachael Woolston

What to know the simplest way to stay motivated to exercising and healthy living? Statistics from Strava reveal that it’s something far easier than you might think…

At the beginning of every year, Strava, the biggest tracking platform for runners and cyclists in the world, crunch all their data to reveal big insights into everything from the most popular running distance for women (half marathon) to the female age group that runs the furthest and fastest (women aged 42-49, so who says getting older means slowing down?).

But what we were most interested to see, was the extent to which setting a goal encourages adherence to exercise with 89% of those who set a running goal for instance, still sticking to running up to six months later.

So, if you always find sticking to exercise a bit of a drag, then the answer could be as simple as finding a goal that inspires you – and perhaps scares you a little – to keep you motivated.

It’s why we always work with each and every customer who comes to us to help them set a goal that challenges but inspires them, whether it’s to be able to do ten full push ups by the end of a four weeks course (and yes, many come not being able to do one on their knees so it’s possible), run their first 5k Parkrun, complete an obstacle race or on their first adventure race.

You don’t need to be an athlete or aspire to be one to have a goal, you just have to recognise that you want to change something and be inspired to try.

That’s why for the Fitbitch tenth anniversary, we are launching  #fitbitch10in10, providing 10 goals that you can take on over the next ten months to inspire you to get fit and build your confidence while training with a group of like minded women.

You can train with us virtually or join us in some group sessions. There is no limit on age and all fitness backgrounds are welcome.

We have a track record in helping women who are total fitness newbies take on some big ‘firsts’ from park runs to triathlons, cycle rides to Tough Mudder Obstacles.

 

Our four week courses are the absolute foundations upon which you can build the stamina, fitness and belief to take on any of these challenges,  along with a committed group of other Fitbitches.

It may seem impossible to you if you’re reading this now, but nothing is impossible when you set a goal and work, one step at a time, to reach that goal. Click here for details of #fitbitch10in10.

Our Awaken starts on Monday, aimed at awakening all your senses to the joy of exercising outdoors, and a holistic approach to fitness, incorporating everything from meditation to myofascial mobility work, kickboxing to kettlebells, Barre work to boxing.

Boxing Belles

April 13, 2018 at 9:30
Posted by Rachael Woolston

There is no better way of getting rid of stress and feeling fantastic than a boxing session. And with good technique, it delivers a fantastic all over body strength and conditioning workout, particularly when combined with kettlebells.

This 45 minute class incorporates boxing sessions segmented into three minute rounds to replicate real-time boxing ring conditions, along with a final 15 minute kettle bell workout, to help build strength and stability.

Lifting weights, particularly in your 30s, 40s and upwards is vital for maintaining muscle tissue which, in turn, helps balance and boost optimum hormone health.

If you’ve never tried boxing or kettle bells before, don’t worry, we run through technique and re-instill this even if you have done it before. Good technique means that you use the right muscles which means that you get even better results.

Location: The class takes place in front of the old Bowling Pavilion adjacent to the children’s playground in Preston Park.

Classes cost £12 per session or you can book ten classes to before April 1st 2018 for £100.

Terms and Conditions on 10 classes: Classes are non refundable or exchangeable and must be taken consecutively from April 13th – June 22nd 2018 (no class 25th May).  To book all ten, email info@fitbitchbootcamp.com. You can book individual sessions direct via our booking page.
