Posted by Rachael Woolston

Setting a goal is proven to help keep you motivated. And what’s more inspiring  than training for something that will leave you with a great sense of achievement, compared to trying to motivate yourself to hit a number on scale? (pssst. that will happen anyway without you thinking about it with #fitbitch10in10)

Join our tenth year anniversary celebrations by participating in #fitbitch10in10, setting 10 goals that you can work towards during 2019 to complete a life inspiring year of fitness and healthy change!

Set goals and be part of something!

Saturday 30th March, 8.15am, Box Beach Box Sauna, £23.75 plus admin fee

Thursday April 18th, Bluebell Stanmer Trail Explore, 7pm, £10 plus admin fee

Join us for a bluebell run through Stanmer Woods, Thursday 28th for all levels, or if you’ve got an entry, do the Raw Energy BlueBell Angmering 10 or 10 miles or BM10k. If you join us for the explore, it will be a walk run, dog jog whatever works. The main focus is seeing the amazing carpet of bluebells!

May 5th,  Steyning Super Sprint Triathlon, 7.40am, £52, 10% discount with our event partners

**Fitbitch Tri Training Day April 27th, with a King Alfred swim, followed by bike and park run – do them all, or team up with your relay team. £15 plus admin fee, taken by two times Ironwoman, Amy.***

The Sprint distance comprises of a 400m pool swim, 20k bike and a 5k run easily achievable on minimal training simply for the experience of doing it.

The swim is in a 25m indoor pool, you can do the bike on any bike that you have and the run will be a loop around the historic market town and into the grounds of Wilton House. Enter here  (although we have a discount code if you have a membership card).

To train for this, you will need a bike. The swim is in the pool. OR you can team up with two others to take part in a team relay and choose the discipline that works for you.

Fitbitch Tri training plan involving 3-4 sessions per week (we’ll tell you the key ones if you have limited time) £30 plus admin fee. You will need to start training mid March.

Friday June 14, MTB and Sleep Out, from 7pm, £25 plus admin fee

You will need a MTB and a sleeping bag as a minimum for this urban adventure. We’ll meet at Stanmer Park and cycle out for a max 10 mile ride to our secret sleep out location. You’ll need to bring your own food for dinner but we’ll watch the sunrise with a cup of tea before cycling back to Stanmer for breakfast.  Limited to 6 people.

Wednesday June 19th, Swim the Lake, 7pm, £19 + £4 triathlon day licence

If you have never done open water swimming, you’ll think it’s terrifying. Thoughts of Jaws come to mind. But honestly, once you do it you’ll wonder why you’ve never done it before and you’ll never want to go back to a swimming pool again … except in the winter perhaps!

You will need a wetsuit.  It’s only 750metres. Enter here

We will have some discounted group training for this in conjunction with Brighton Sealanes. 

Brighton Sea Lanes also offer 10% discount for single one-to-one lessons to those who have a Fitbitch membership card.

Tuesday July 23rd, Sun Up Yoga and Sea Dip, 7am, £15 plus admin fee

Get up, get out and watch the beauty of the sun rise as you flex and stretch on this beach front yoga session before joining us to try out stand up paddle boarding, or just swim!

Sunday September 29th Barns Green 10k, 10.20am, £20

The beauty of the Sussex countryside in late summer is not to be missed. And this event showcases it in all its glory, ending with  live music – and it being Fitbitch, we’ll find a pub!

Sunday December 8th, Mince Pie 10 miles (start time TBC)

Walk it, jog it, run walk it, this beautiful 10 mile trail run is hilly but you can do it in fancy dress with friends and your reward? Other than the endorphins and feel good achievement, an ENTIRE SPORTS HALL full of mince pies!

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.
