When you start out in business it can be like sailing a ship on your own. So finding your tribe is essential so that you can have a support network and grow. Today's challenge requires me to think about 1 to 2 people that I would like to have as a mentor and why they inspire me and what they have done that I think is pretty incredible, and then what questions I would ask these mentors if they were to come on board and help me.

Day 4 10 day blog challenge - unlocking your superpowers

Today I am writing about unlocking my superpowers. What I realised when I started my fitness business back in 2010 was that running your own business means that you need to wear lots of different hats and some of those hats are easy to wear i.e. my superpowers and other hats just bore me to tears. On any given day I would be a fitness trainer, a marketing expert, a networker, an accounts person, the CEO of my business, the cleaner and on and on. Read More

Inactivity in women over 30 greater health risk than smoking

t’s not what size your body is but what you do with it’- Lack of exercise overtakes obesity and smoking in biggest risk factor for heart disease in women over 30.

So why do people quit?

Since I have been in the fitness industry I have realised that so many people quit exercising , almost within weeks of getting started. These reasons vary from person to person but in general I can pin it down to not having any support or motivation, limited or no time to exercise, plain old boredom sets in, or there are the ones who try and do too much too soon, you know the type and then of course there are those who spent the past 10 years putting on 15kg but now that they have decided to change they want to get results tomorrow! Only yesterday I was speaking to a lady and she said that she gets started all guns a blazing for the first two weeks and then she falls back off the wagon every time. "Let's face it we all have the same number of hours in the day, but it is how we choose to use them that makes the difference." So let’s take a look at the reason why so many people quit and what we can do about it so that you can end the vicious cycle and attain your fitness goal. Read More
