The fitness industry (I'm ashamed to say) generally does a terrible job of relating to people


In fact I'd go as far to say that it puts people off


The very people we should be helping


Look on social media and you'll find:

  • Personal Trainers showing off their latest workout
  • “Look at me lifting 3000kg and I'm still smiling!”
  • “3rd workout of the day for me - I'm smashing it!”
  • People flashing their abs
  • Pictures of their chicken and broccoli prepared for the WHOLE YEAR
  • “Motivational” quotes that are...well, deeply un-motivational


Bouncing around the gym like Tigger the Tiger because they've had 4 expressos


All about them.


I'm sure it appeals to a few people (probably their colleagues mainly!)


But most people looking on are thinking:


“I could never do that”


There are exceptions, but quite often they will be people who have never struggled with their health, their weight, their motivation and their lifestyle


They look confused when someone says they don't like exercise, or can't stick to a routine, or comfort eats sometimes


They can't understand or truly empathise with people


And because of all of that, sometimes we get tarred with the same brush


People assume


They will say to us things like:


“It's OK for them”


“I bet you don't have to watch what you eat” 


Or “I bet you exercise everyday, don't you?”


So I'm going to let you in on a LITTLE SECRET


All of us here have had our own challenges with our health in the past - and often they're things we're still working on

(Evidence below ↓↓↓)


So WE DON'T JUDGE


We UNDERSTAND 


We may not know what struggles that person has behind closed doors


Maybe they've been overweight in the past?


Maybe they're not technically “overweight” but have body image issues


Perhaps they struggle with their mental health


Their confidence


For most people there's something that holds them back


And they need some support to help them move past it


So if you work with us, you'll get that SUPPORT and GUIDANCE


No guilt, no shame


And we'll be IN IT TOGETHER


Finally, if you want to see me in my...err...larger days...
