One Determined Lady

Categories: Exercise

I love the fact we are finally getting some sunny days to get out and about, it makes my mornings so much easier to get up, does anybody else find that?

Although the 4 weather systems I experienced on Saturday made me question is summer nearly here. We went to Sherwood Pines for a walk, plus gives me a chances to look at the people on GoApe and the Segways.

As we are driving there a nice grey cloud is starting to form, and from setting off in the sun we have our first shower of rain.

That's not too bad but then as we get to the forest and start the walk massive hail comes down and then lovely sunshine, it alternates like this for the rest of the afternoon.

As you can imagine our nice sunny walk we had planned, turned into a VERY wet and muddy walk!

But we were determined to enjoy ourselves and we spent nearly 2 hours there and had a great time.

Now on the topic of determined ladies, today I am going to talk to you about a client of mine called Nic, she has been working with me now for 6 months and has had a few medical set backs to throw her fitness journey of course.

This hasn't stopped her, and we adjusted her training sessions to gradually build her fitness up to ensure no relapses occur.

Last year she completed her first Tough Mudder event, and this year the skies the limit, she has already done a sky dive for her birthday (something she always wanted to do), learnt to climb, and is in hard training for the Robin Hood half marathon later on in the year.

Don't just take my word for what she has achieved, hear what she has to say below.

"I initially came to train with Gemma to get back in the saddle of exercising, I had previously been a runner but stopped. I wanted to get back into exercising but didn't have the get up go needed to push myself.

Working with Gemma gave me more confidence and she really inspired me, and motivated me to do more. I started running again did a tough mudder and went on a skydive, which was so much fun, and from looking at Gemma's video of her skydive made me feel more reassured.

I also got into indoor climbing which I always wanted to do but never got round to, but after hearing Gemma's great experience with doing it I booked my first session.

We swap recipes now, as I do love a good pudding, but's it's great to swap them with Gemma knowing they'll be healthier and still taste great.

Gemma has really given me the confidence to do all these things and to keep going, I'm doing a half marathon this year and I don't think I would have the mental capability to do it, never mind the fitness without Gemma's help and enthusiasm to keep going and to mix up my exercises to keep it fun!"

Her hard work and determination is really paying off for her.

Hope you all have a great week and enjoy the nice weather we are starting to have.

Who is going to be having the first BBQ if the year soon?
