Most people who come and train at Jo’s Thing do so for one of two reasons; to lose weight or to get fit – or both.
To achieve either of these goals and sustain them long term, requires a change of lifestyle. Short ‘get a bikini body in a weekend’ type training programmes don’t work (unless you just have that last couple of lbs to lose). Sorry to burst that particular bubble if that’s what you were hoping to do…. To achieve the body weight which is right for your body combined with the strength and cardiovascular fitness which leaves you feeling fantastic, requires consistent training and great nutrition. There are no short cuts and no quick training blasts which will achieve this.
You can tell just from their results which of my clients are consistent with their training and nutrition. They look amazing, they feel amazing and they are achieving phenomenal results in the park.
Last week I was away in Norfolk for a cycling holiday with my other half (first child free week in 13 years – hoorah!). As Ros was away as well, we could not offer any Early Birds training.
Now, the Early Birds are a nutty bunch. Well, you’d have to be to train at 6am in all weathers three times a week, eh? But when I received texts with pictures from their training last week (above), I realised that these clients really have grasped the concept of lifestyle change. It would have been easy for them to take the week off as there were no trainers. But no! They met up, trained (and demonstrated that if you have no equipment you make use of what’s there) and judging by the pictures, had a great workout.
THAT is what gets results. Finding solutions and training even when it would be easy to find a good excuse not to.
I love my Early Birds and can’t wait to get back to 3 weeks courses in September, but really for these folk who continued working out last week, my work here is done.
