Never too late to start a fitness programme

So we did our Special charity bootcamp class yesterday in Bath and raised over £100 for Cancer Research which is great. It was a beautiful crisp morning with a lovely sunrise that seemed to turn into fog later in the day so we were very lucky.

I put together a challenging (but not super tough) bodyweight workout as I knew that after a few weeks off people would find it harder than normal, plus we had a new person join the class.  Most people found it a 9/10 in terms of how hard it was so I guess they may be aching a bit today. The great thing is that they got a little kickstart before we start back at bootcamp properly next week.

It seems most people have had enough of the eating and drinking and not knowing what day of the week it is, and are ready to get back into the routine again.

Zest Bootcamp will be 8 years old in January and I’m proud to say that we have helped hundreds of people over those years to feel healthier and fitter and I’m excited to help even more people in 2017. All ages and abilities are welcome and at one of our classes the average age is 54 so if you are over 50 please don’t be put off thinking that bootcamp is only for the under 40’s, infact my passion is to help more women over 40, and especially 50, feel better by getting into regular exercise and eating well.

Only yesterday I had a call from an ex 1-1 personal training client ( in her 50s) who had tried to carry on her own fitness at the gym for the last 5 years but has noticed she isn’t doing as much as she should and age is catching up with her so I’m going to start working with her again to help her feel great.

So if you have never been to one of our classes and would like to come for a trial then why not book a place at one of our 45 minute classes that run at either 6.30am, 9.30am or 6.15pm in Bath. We are starting on Tuesday 3rd as Monday is a bank holiday then back to our regular Wed and Friday slots. Click here to book your trial week

We have a new person join us yesterday and she was very nervous but afterwards said how much she enjoyed it and thanked us for making her feel so welcome so don’t put it off if you are worried – just do it like Nike tell us to!

Here is a photo of a few of our lovely members of the month in 2016 who achieved different things and all of who are still regular members and continue to achieve results. Even just yesterday one of the girls who had trouble reaching her foot to do a thigh stretch managed it and she was delighted – these small things are actually big things in terms of progress and results.

So as we say goodbye to 2016 I’d just like to thank everyone for their support of Zest Bootcamp whether as members or just helping share the health and fitness message.

I wish you all a very happy, healthy 2017

Looking for Love

Many of the women I work with have lost confidence when it comes to their bodies and if they are single it can be pretty hard to feel positive about going out dating again.  Luckily there is someone who can help and so I was delighted when dating coach, Ane Auret, asked me to do an interview about how women can improve their body confidence.

Body Confidence

You can listen to my top tips and also some of my background story (eating chocolate for breakfast was never going to make me feel good was it!) via the link below.

Proven Strategies for Body Confidence

We only have one life and so why not feel the best you can possibly feel by giving your body the right foods and getting it moving so that you feel full of energy and more positive about the challenges life throws at you. I am passionate about helping women, especially those over 40, to look and feel the best they can be.

Just like me, Ane is passionate about helping women with relationships so when you put us both together you have a wealth of resources.

ps Our next trial week at Zest Bootcamp starts Monday 23rd May and some classes are almost fully booked so if you are a women in Bath who would like to feel better don’t wait – just do it. This was part of an email I received this morning …..

“Thank you so much, my friends and family can’t believe I’m exercising as I only ever do long walks but I’m genuinely really enjoying it and after only 3 weeks can feel the benefits.”
