Latest Fitness Articles from Enrich Fitness:February 2015

Tempted to give up on your goals? - Dont

February is a funny month really. At the start of the year, we tend to set ourselves goals e.g. lose weight, get fit etc. and in January enthusiasm is high. If you read my last post you may have set yourself a SMART goal. How are you doing with it? Are you still as motivated to keep going, or are you starting to find yourself more tempted to revert to old habits? Perhaps you aren't getting the results you wanted by this point, so you start questioning and asking yourself 'what is the point?' This is NORMAL and happens to everyone when making a change.

If this is happening to you trust me, this is exactly the time to NOT GIVE UP.

I have spoken about this before but our minds are the biggest barrier to achieving whatever we want in our lives. We all have that little voice in our heads that tempt us back to our old ways, telling us we can't do it, shouldn't do it, it won't work etc. We forget that we also have another voice telling us we can, we should and we will get there! It seems to be more natural for us to listen to the more unhelpful voice.

I have set myself a goal; I am going to run a 10k military style assault course with my brother at the end of March. It is going to challenge me physically and mentally no doubt about it. I know what I need to do training wise in order to feel fit and ready to take it on but have I been sticking to my original plan rigidly? The honest answer is no. Am I going to give up, not train for it and then rock up feeling unprepared and struggle around the course? No!

On the days that I find myself struggling emotionally and am tempted not to do the training this is what I try to do:
1.Stop and remind myself WHY I am doing this
2.Ask myself 'if I don't do it today, will I then beat myself and ruin my day feeling guilty?' The answer is always yes
3.Look at what I had planned for the session that day
4.Tell myself it won't take long and I will feel great at the end
5.Put my trainers and headphones on and leave the house
6.Sometimes, rope Caz in to train with me - buddying up is lots of fun!
7.Start the planned session

How do I feel after I have done it? I can honestly say I feel amazing and that isn't just down to the pumping endorphins, it is because I am pleased that I listened to my kind voice and not the unhelpful one. That is what makes me feel even better for doing it.

Of course another factor that can work against our plans and goals is life itself! Sometimes what you plan just doesn't happen. Family emergencies come up, you feel unwell, work goes mental and you end up working overtime, etc.

I am no different; I am one of the carers for our Dad who has Alzheimer's Disease and lives at home alone. Our Mum recently went into a nursing home for the same disease. It has a huge impact on my life emotionally and takes up a lot of physical time. My work schedule changes throughout the week so I do have days where I had a long outdoor running and resistance session planned but then I find myself without enough time to do it.

On the days when life and time become a barrier I do the following:

1.Accept that today my plan has to change
2.Either change the session to a much shorter one or swap my training days around over the next few days
3.Tell myself that it is ok I couldn't do what I had planned today

You are going to experience days where time becomes an issue and that's ok. The one thing I will say is that there can be a danger of using not having enough time as a regular reason to procrastinate/delay doing what you want to do for you! Promise yourself that you will get back on track tomorrow and make the effort to try again. The harsh reality is that nobody else can achieve your goal for you and you must commit to sometimes putting yourself first! No bad thing.
There is one thing I can assure you of; you will never regret putting the effort in and listening more to your kind voice. If you can do this, and accept that it will take time, you will find that you start to see results and this automatically motivates you plus (and this is the best bit) you will feel fantastic and proud of yourself.

Fitness with enrich fitness

Stick with it, be patient and go for it! You will be amazed with the results.

Love Sian xx

 

 

What our clients say about Personal Training with Enrich Fitness:

"I started training with Sian 13 weeks before my wedding, determined to look and feel my best on my wedding day. Not only did she work around my crazy work schedule to fit in as many sessions as I could before the big day but I left every session feeling great and with a big smile on my face.

Sian is such an inspiration; she was always waiting for me with a big smile even if she was about to tell me to hold the plank for a very long time! Her bubbly, happy disposition made it bearable and I soon saw results. I lost 2 inches off my waist, an inch off my hips and 3 inches from my legs which I know I couldn't have done without her constant support and varied routines.

Sian challenged and pushed me to get the best results - even my husband to be joined in on some of the sessions - and the fun competitions Sian introduced kept us motivated to achieve our goals.

I would recommend Sian in a heartbeat - she is a fantastic trainer with an infectious enthusiasm and I am forever grateful to her for helping me look my best on my wedding day. Thank you."

H Bliss, Isleworth

I'm a 64 year old woman who suffers from arthritis and has had ongoing problems with my shoulders and back too. I decided that I really needed to do something about it. I already attend Carrie's Core Stability class on a Friday and mentioned to her that I needed help with strengthening my joints, muscles and also my stability. I have been seeing Carrie at my home once a week for half an hour for the last 18 months and have really noticed the difference. She tailors all the exercises in the session to my weaknesses but makes sure they are not too hard. Since training with Carrie I have noticed a huge improvement in my shoulders and even my chiropractor has noticed! In the last 5 years I have had three falls and three fractures, but since working with Carrie I have had no more falls. This is due to me having better balance and my body being in a stronger condition. Not only is she a friendly trainer, she continuously encourages me and gives me praise. She keeps track of the session despite my non-stop chatting! I really enjoy my sessions with Carrie and look forward to our training each week.

Dominique, Hampton

"I started my weight loss journey with Sian in February 2011, after googling personal training in Teddington, with the goal of slimming down before I went travelling to Australia in April. Sian advised me of my diet, and I began seeing her for three personal training sessions a week.
Every session with Sian was different, entertaining and hard work, and I had a sense of accomplishment at the end of the hour. Sian was motivating, and knew just how far to push me! I lost weight, slept better, and to my surprise enjoyed the exercise! In total over the 3 months with Sian I lost 8 inches. I still have weight to lose, but I began my travels slimmer, happier and confident I will be able to continue my active lifestyle on my own, thanks to Sian's help."

S Taylor, Teddington

"I suffer from a lot of neck and shoulder pain especially when I am stressed. Carrie introduced the Acuball to me after one of our PT sessions and it was amazing.
It really helped to relieved all the pressure around my neck and the pain. I use it now after all my exercise sessions and find it very useful!"

Thivya

"After endless sessions at the gym, on my own & the odd class I decided to look for a female personal trainer in Isleworth. I knew I wanted a female who was going to understand my needs yet motivate me to get fit & tone up.

Once I met Carrie, we clicked totally & now I love her weekly sessions which are different & challenging each week. Since starting my sessions in January 2011 with Carrie my body shape has changed, my fitness levels have improved beyond recognition & I can even run longer than a minute - something I have always wanted to achieve!

I am signing up my fourth block of sessions & with me feeling & looking the way I am now, I definitely am not going back! Miraculously, I have managed to really enjoy & make fitness a part of my life now".


J Mundae, Isleworth

"I started personal training sessions with Sian to improve my overall fitness as I had lacked motivation during the winter months to exercise. The sessions were hard work but Sian made them really enjoyable. She varied the workouts so that I was always challenged and she is excellent at motivating you when you feel like giving up!  With each session I improved my fitness and was able to chat that little bit more while exercising instead of being completely out of breath! As a result of the sessions, I definitely felt I had more energy and felt stronger overall. Thank you Sian!"

L.S from Sutton, Surrey

"I would heartily recommend Sian as a personal trainer. The programme she writes for you is very well tailored individually, and she is very thorough in her preparation.  She is also very flexible about working around your schedule.  During the sessions themselves she is very encouraging and knows exactly how to push you and keep you motivated.  I only stopped using Enrich Fitness Personal Training because I moved away from the area.  I miss her sessions!"

Mark Woodward, television producer

I'd signed up to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, which many think is a Comic Relief walk in the park, but I knew I had to get some training in, and I'm so glad I did because it turned out to be the hardest thing I've ever done, in pitch black blizzard conditions, and all the training that Sian put me through, aiding my mental strength aswell as physical, paid off when I reached the summit!

Sian's enthusiasm pushed me through new barriers and she made each session interesting by devising a new workout specific to my challenge every time.  I wanted a personal trainer in Twickenham, where I live, as my work meant that I had to train at 5.45am and Sian was there waiting for me on The Green every time, in the cold & darkness!

Pushing me to my limit (which I had asked for in the briefing) Sian wouldn't let me get away with anything. She really knows how the body works, and explained what each exercise would do and would also quickly adapt the session if I had a niggle somewhere too.

I would recommend Sian to anyone considering a physical challenge in their life, however big or small, Sian will help you get there, and by the way, we had a great laugh too!"

D Smith, Twickenham

"For most new mums, getting back to your normal shape and size before becoming pregnant is often a priority. I tried several different post-natal exercise classes after my son was born but found it hard to do any exercise with a screaming baby by my side. I decided to look for a personal trainer in Surbiton and found Carrie. Having Carrie come over to my house whilst my son has his lunch time nap has been a godsend.  It has meant that I can get a full hour of one to one exercise each week where I otherwise would not have been able to. I have been seeing Carrie for over a year now and have seen remarkable improvements to my fitness and physique. Unlike going to a gym where you end up doing the same old thing so it becomes a bore, Carrie varies your exercise regime each session, which makes the session more interesting and she really pushes you to achieve your ultimate goal. It has been a delight having Carrie as my personal trainer as not only do I get to train in the comfort of my own home, Carrie listens to your needs and always keeps you motivated. I am always left feeling good about myself and training after Carrie leaves. She has become a good friend."

L Garrod, Surbiton
