We start Thursday 22nd September 2016
Are you in?
Time To Take Control Of Your Waistline, Health & Fitness
Yep, summer is upon us and soon there'll be all the 'excess baggage' around the waistline from a relaxing holiday. Normal routines resume once schools go back and then it's the slippery slope to the 'C' word ... Christmas. So time to take stock and get yourself well and truly on track to a healthy, slimmer, trimmer body starting with a consistent, healthy approach. An approach that forgets the diet mentality of stripping all the bad stuff out, leaving you with nothing but cravings for everything you've told yourself you can't have (even though you can), and leading to an overwhelming sense of deprivation, misery, moodiness and ultimately failure in your goals.
Instead focus on putting more of the good stuff in.
We're here to help
With children, partners and aging parents to look after and all the usual demands on your time, it's very easy to drop off your list of things that are important. Unfortunately, if you don't look after yourself, you won't be in a fit state to run around after all those other people and fulfil those committments. You'll also be increasing your chances of long term health issues and weight gain.
Time is of the essence, both in terms of getting yourself slim, trim, fit and healthy and in terms of how much you have available to shop, prep and eat your daily meals. So we've got a 2 pronged solution for you.
What would it be like if you had:
shopping lists of exactly what foods to buy on a weekly basis
menu plans so you knew exactly which meals to prepare and when
quick and easy recipes to follow for delicious, wholesome, nourishing goodness that also happen to taste fabulous
ideas for planning and preparing ahead to save more time
a plan that will help you slim and trim naturally
a plan that will boost your energy levels, give you glowing skin, shiny hair, lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol and more
a weekly group get together to share your thoughts, experiences and catch up on more handy hints and tips
simple ways to steer clear of sabotage
guidance for setting achievable goals and help crossing them off your list successfully
a dedicated weekly group running session to move your body in new ways
a private weekly group circuit class to build functional fitness, strength, stamina and tone
and a fabulous group of people with the same weight, health and fitness insecurities as you to do it all with
That's exactly what's on offer!
NEW DATE STARTING Thursday 22nd September 2016
The healthy eating part
You'll get together with Melissa once a week in the Fresh Start Health Juice Bar to talk about simple ways to change your eating habits, discuss recipes and health tips, as well as share challenges, ideas, successes and results.
So if you want to:
be slim and trim
boost your energy levels
improve your skin
clear the brain fog
reduce niggly aches and pains
have an easy plan to follow
change your eating habits for the better
... get yourself booked on the Fit'n'Slim 12 Week Programme
The fitness part
Twice a week you'll be in the hands of Jonathan of JGF Fitness - personal trainer, GB athlete and double Ironman - who will support, guide and encourage you to move your body in ways you might not have considered for a while.
Too many of us end up sitting in the car, at a desk or in meetings all day and don't use our body other than to get in and out of bed, in and out of the car, to carry shopping, pick up children, and not much else.
So, if you want to:
be able to run around in the park with your children
carry the shopping easily
walk up a flight of stairs without getting out of breath
be able to push yourself up off the floor if you fall over
develop core strength and stability to prevent falls
tone as you trim to prevent saggy excess skin
avoid a lifetime of pharmaceutical drugs and nhs waiting lists
want to lose some weight before you can face going to a gym or fitness class
... get yourself booked on the Fit'n'Slim 12 Week Programme
What kind of results can you expect?
As you may expect, everyone is different so results vary. But expect to lose AT LEAST 7lbs plus inches off your waist, hips, legs and chest. But if you want something more specific here are some of the results of recent groups:
Martin – 26lbs
Michelle – 16lbs plus 1.5” thighs, 1” arms, 2” chest, 2” waist, 3” hips
Jean – 5lbs (21lbs since Sept) plus 1” waist, 2” hips
David – 30lbs plus 6” waist
Sheila – 9lbs plus 4.5” waist, 3” hips, 1” legs
Emma E – 7lbs plus 1.5” waist, 1” hips, 3” chest, 1” legs, 0.5” arms. Also shed 21 inches in the first 12 weeks (Sept-Dec)!
Dierdre - 6lbs
Bernie: 12lbs plus 2" waist, 0.5" bust
Emma H: 17lbs plus 4" waist, 1.5" hips, 2" legs, 0.5" arms, 2" bust
In Melissa's sessions you will:
Be weighed and measured and photographed. This is to keep a track of your progress. I'm not a fan of the scales, especially not as a daily ritual, I prefer to go by how good you feel, but once every couple of weeks as a guide to show you that you're going in the right direction and just how much you've achieved is fine. And measurements and photographs at the beginning and end of the challenge will also help show your fantastic results.
Be free to discuss any challenges and successes. Knowing there are other people in the room going through the same experience as you, at the same time, can be a real boost and gives you the feeling that you're not alone. Sometimes things crop up that you want to talk about, other times you may be happy to just sit back and listen to other members of the group. Previous groups have all said how helpful they found this part and how it felt like a safe environment to discuss any issues they had. They've also become firm friends.
Be given helpful hints and tips. If you guys let me get a word in (!) each week I'll be sharing more hints, tips and ways to make your healthy new lifestyle quicker and easier.
Receive menu plans. Over the weeks you will be given shopping lists, menu plans and recipes to help you establish healthier eating habits.
Hear how to stay motivated. I'll be showing you how to set achievable short and long term goals and change your mindset so you achieve them.
To clear your diary on a weekly basis for each of the sessions
Whilst you will not be on just juice for the whole 12 weeks, it will form a firm foundation for each and every day of the 12 week plan, so you will need a juicer and a blender. Juicing is a fantastic way to get nutrients in to your body quickly and easily, helping to cleanse, build and support every chemical reaction, flow, function and process in your body.
Fear not, we will be using our teeth too!
You may not be a team player or feel the need to talk through any of the recipes, successes, challenges, etc as you go along but I can't stress enough the importance of turning up each and every week whenever humanly possible to hear the latest hints and tips and to go through the plan for the coming week. It really will help you get your head in the right place for success and make the whole process so much easier.
In Jonathan's sessions you will:
Develop gradually. Everyone will be at a different level. Some will have run before, including competing in 10ks, tough mudder style events, or just school sports day. Others won't have broken in to a trot since their own sports day way back when. Jonathan will warm you up, develop your running legs and encourage you to go that little bit further than you ever thought possible. He's also there to show you that you're capable of far more than you give yourself credit for and to encourage and support you as you build confidence.
The running sessions will start at Fresh Start Health, dressed and ready to go at 6pm for a half hour session. At this time of year it's wonderful to be out in the lighter evenings. Afterwards we'll get straight in to our indoor healthy eating section of the evening, adding on a few layers of clothing to keep warm whilst we chat.
Develop functional fitness, strength and tone. It's important to be able to do every day things easily and effortlessly. Over the weeks you will challenge your body - at your own level - using different muscle groups to keep your body guessing and to develop range of motion as well as core strength and stability. It's not a competition. Everyone will be too concerned with what they're doing to be looking at you. And remember, everyone is in the same boat.
It's all too common to hear people say they want to lose some weight before they start a fitness routine. But if you get your body moving straight away you'll get results on the weight loss front far more quickly ... and you'll tone as you go so no saggy bits!
