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.

Do you struggle to stick to healthy, nutritious ways of eating because you’re busy, have no time to prepare or just don’t quite know what you should be eating for your goals? Worry no more, our next course is in conjunction with Gem’s Wholesome Kitchen, who deliver all your meals direct to your door for up to 10 days.

This is all to do with our exercise prescription, which we gear, each and every course, to the individuals that we see and what their goals are.

Plant based nutrition expert, Gem’s Wholesome Kitchen creates the most delicious, healthy meals and works around the world for exclusive health retreats, as well as creating incredible meal delivery products for personal clients.

We spend money on clothes, facials, magazines, chocolate and holidays to make ourselves feel good yet often baulk about spending money on looking after the most important thing we have – our health and bodies.

To really eat well, you need to engage with food and having a meal delivery service can be a great way of setting your foundations, weaning yourself off bad habits and learning new ways of creating healthy, wholesome meals. And by the end of it, you WILL feel fantastic.

Spaces on our Fit Summer Bodies, are restricted to just 14 in each time slot, 6.15am to 7am or 7am – 7.45am and runs from 23 July – August 16. Or you can do a Fit Body Blitz, July 23-August 2nd or August 6th-16th. The five or 10 day plan with Gem’s Wholesome Kitchen must start on 23 July.

Recharge, Hove

February 19, 2018 at 6:15
Posted by Rachael Woolston

February can turn into a flab-tastic month if you’re not focused. It’s one of those ‘nothing’ months – it doesn’t have the promise of new beginnings like January (and two weeks of festive excess to motivate you) , nor the promise of Spring which still seems a little far away.

Which is why you NEED something to help you keep on the right fitness and healthy eating track. Our Recharge course will give you exactly that, providing the inspiration, motivation, fun and expertise to help you gain your health and wellbeing goals. And all while having fun.

PRICE OPTIONS

six weeks, £165 (10% off before Feb 1st)

four weeks, £140 (10% off before Feb 1st – must be taken consecutively and can’t be split)

12 sessions across course, £144

This year, we are offering either a four or six week option, three mornings per week, along with an 8 session flexible drop in option.

EARLY BIRD CODE  RC VALID MIDNIGHT FEB 1st for 10% discount on full six/four week course bookings.

 

All those who commit to the six and four week course will get an complimentary one on one assessment before and after the course, where we will discuss your goals and measure your body statistics so that you can see the difference from the beginning to the end. The course, as always, comes with our complimentary eating plans which have helped hundreds of women lose weight with our courses over the last eight years.

What you get with this course is personalised training in a group environment, all-female coaches who understand your body, your motivations and your goals, whatever age, life or fitness stage you are at right now. And it’s on the beautiful hove seafront with life affirming scenery and invigorating weather!

We don’t do large, impersonal classes, we get to know you, what motivates you and just what you’re capable of achieving in fitness terms.

 

Our courses are not just an exercise class – we offer you a supportive, fun journey that is as much behaviour changing as butt changing …although it does that too!

Here are your price options

EARLY BIRD CODE VALID UNILT MIDNIGHT Feb 1. INPUT CODE RC at checkout. Only valid with full six or four week course bookings.

Six week course, £165 or £148.50 with 10% early bird discount code if booked before October 23rd. This includes a one to one assessment and works out at £8.25 per session

HiiT returns for the summer

April 24, 2017 at 12:53
Posted by Rachael Woolston

If you can’t commit to one of our full courses but still want to get fit, flexible and strong, try our 30 minute high intensity interval sessions

IMG_2959

Fitting everything in that you know you should for a healthy, well balanced life is, well, just a bit hectic. The irony is, the older you get, the more important it is to stay active.

As women, we begin to lose muscle mass by up to half a pound a year from our early thirties. And by our forties, if we are not doing meaningful, focused strength work (and this means more than walking) we run the risk of our bodies ageing far more quickly than they should.

With less muscle mass, we don’t burn as many calories, result – weight gain. But it’s not just the aesthetic issues that we need to worry about.

Less muscle means it affects our hormone balance and can also lead to the onset of sacropenia, the wasting away of  muscle mass that affects balance, function and strength in older age.

That’s where HiiT is brilliant for busy, working women, mothers and fathers (yes, HiiT Squad is also open to men). You get a 30 minute, super-effective strength session and it’s easy to fit it in.

It’s also super-effective for cyclists and runners enabling you to build up your strength without it impacting on the time you spend doing the thing you love the most – running and cycling.

Anyway, it’s back on a trial basis at Hove seafront at 8pm-8.30pm on Wednesday evenings and at The Level at 6.30am or 7am on Fridays starting from Weds May 10th.

It’s £10 per session, £45 or 5 or £80 for 10.
