Big thankyou to you guys xxxxxx
Alex took part in her first major competition today. She came second which is amazing. Mark and I are extremely proud of her.
Competition today came second in my weight class, under 63kg
102.5kg squat which is a PB without wraps
And a 145kg deadlift which is a all time ...PB
And a 300kg total very happy with today,
was quite ill last week and wasn't sure if I'd be able to compete but very pleased with how I did
Huge thank you to Edward Readwin for doing absolutely everything, definitely couldn't do any of this without you❤️
Good Morning everyone. I hope you are all feeling fab, fit and happy. I often start my posts with that slogan as I genuinely really do hope you are all feeling fab, fit and happy, but I understand that not everyone can feel like that all the time, I know for sure I don't always ! So today I want to remind everyone that it's OK not to be feeling on top of the world and not to beat yourself up that sometimes you feel sad, worried, anxious or angry. Everyone at some time of the...ir life has to deal with difficult situations and no amount of motivational talk will take away feelings of sadness, grief, worry etc. We are ALL allowed to sometimes feel these negative emotions and it doesn't mean with are in any way inferior or worthless, it actually means we have empathy, understanding and true feelings. So It's OK to not be OK sometimes. However, if you find that you are sad, anxious and worried more than you are happy and motivated and finding life tough, there are people (including me) who would be more than happy to chat with you and offer you advice and point you in the right direction. Love Jackie xxx
Well done Stacey.
Davina posted this today and I stole it.. fantastic advice
So this is what I’ve learnt so far
1. Say sorry. Compromise and move on.
2. Things come and go, chasing them is pointless....
3. Look at the sky every now and again. Really look at the sky.
4. Some things like your health for example you can’t control, so learn to understand what you can and can’t and only focus on what you can.
5. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow never knows, so all that matters is now.
6. Listen to kids and cab drivers. They have the answer.
7. The only marketing is the product.
8. Observe a trend and do the opposite.
9. Don’t try and do everything. Share the work, you’ll get better results.
10. We’re all brilliant at something. Find that thing and just keep doing it over and over.
11. If you don’t make mistakes you don’t make anything.
12. Lie horizontal for 20 minutes at some point in the afternoon. Rest when your body tells you.
13. Most problems can be cured by a good walk, a good hug, or a good friend. All are free.
14. Learn from Groundhog Day. Giving is better then receiving.
15. Pretty much everything we see around us was created by another human being with exactly the same abilities as you. If they can, so can you.
16. Co operate not compete.
17. Put yourself in their shoes. Really understand their thinking, what they are going through and the reason for their actions, not your interpretation of it.
18. All your emotions, love, jealousy, fear, they’re all inside you, therefore you can choose to act on them or not.
19. Create. Just create. Nothing else matters.
20. Everyday I know less.
Happy New Year!
Good Morning everyone. Well 2018 has arrived and I have decided it's going to be the year of change. There are always things in our life that we would like to change but we always seem to find a thousands reasons to just carry on doing the same old things. So it's time to get rid of all the bad habits, all the negative thoughts, all the excuses and get on with being the best we can possibly be. January is never a good time to make promises as we are still recovering from the ...Christmas holidays and we are all a bit stressed, a bit tired and busy. Therefore I have made the decision to spend this month planning and then working on my future self. Everyone knows that eating well and exercising often are two of the main components for good health but let's not forget we also need to make life fun, interesting and rewarding. So this year I think it's a good idea to step back from calorie counting, weighing scales, BMI calculators etc and instead make ourselves some fun goals. I would love to hear all your suggestions on ways you would like to get fit and have fun at the same time. Maybe taking up a sport, booking a walking holiday, climbing a mountain, horse riding, volunteering at kennels, or it may be something as simple as having a challenge at work with colleagues about climbing the office stairs, there are SO many possibilities. Also I would love to hear some of the ways you would like to relax and allow your body a break from the constant state of ''high alert''. Once you have decided on your fun and challenging goal we can then work on the things that you may perceive as stopping your achieving that goal, for example I know I need better time management. Oh well get planning you lot and let's see if there are things we can maybe do together and if not offer support and encouragement to each other. Have a great day xx
Good morning everyone. I do hope you have all had a good Christmas and are feeling positive about the New Year. Mark, Alex and I have had a great time with family and friends. We have also heard from some people who have had a challenging Christmas and we send them all our love, support and strength. I think 2018 will be a good year and I personally feel that with some effort and getting out of our comfort zone, anything can be achieved in the coming year. This is a good tim...e to write down your goals and have a think about what might be the obstacles you need to jump over to achieve what you want. Please feel free to share with us what YOU would personally like to achieve in 2018, it doesn't have to be fitness related, it can be things like spend more time with friends, sleep better, feel calmer etc and of course feel stronger, healthier and happier. Between us all I am sure we can knock down any obstacles, take the big leap and make the New Year a great year. Love to you all. Jackie x
Weight loss is without doubt the number one reason why most of our clients come to us to start training. Weight loss as a goal in itself is doomed to fail . If this is your only goal you could simply cut of one of your arms job done, or you can live on a strict extreme diet until you reach your desired weight, but then what? Most people will go back to their old ways and end up worse than when they started.
You need to embark on a journey. A journey of discovery unleashing y...our full potential. It always starts with movement, moving in space working hard on balance which helps with core strength. as the journey continues find things that interest you, which can then lead to an adventure,
It's important to realise that exercise is not a punishment for being fat and that moving around is something that our bodies wants to do and are designed to do, it makes exercise more fun and fulfilling. Make sure you are eating good food and making healthy choices when it come to what they eat and drink. All this together then results in your original goal of losing weight, but you will have a more sensible and exciting platform from which to move forward. Taking this approach will make your goals so easy to sustain.
Have a Happy and fun fit Wednesday and please share with everyone what your goals and plans are. Any tips for helping people achieve what they are striving for are always very welcome as well please. xx

I don't usually share things like this on our page, but if you run a small business ( as I know many of you do) this offer was something I wanted to share with you all. I promise I am not on an commission or anything but can personally vouch for the honesty and professionalism of Suzanne.
This Friday, for one day only, I will be reducing the price of my Small Business Legal Academy by 79% to just £147.
If you need professionally drafted contracts... for your business, now is the time to get them!
Included are over 60 template documents, over 30 video guides, checklists, case studies and more - practically every legal document you will ever need in your small business.
You also have free access to my 8 week legal programme that takes you step by step through the types of legal issues that are likely to crop up, such as:
• protecting your brand so competitors can’t steal it
• dealing with suppliers to get the best deal
• ensuring you get paid so you don’t have cashflow problems
• limiting your liability so you don’t get sued
• protecting yourself when working with freelancers so they don’t poach your clients
• taking on employees without getting sued
• social media, marketing and data protection compliance to avoid hefty fines
• and more!
And with the new GDPR data protection regulations coming into force soon with increased fines of up to £17 million, you need to make sure you are compliant in this area. If you collect data such as email addresses (and particularly if you do any email marketing), then you need to know what you can and can’t do and have all the legal documents you need in place.
Use the link below to sign up for notification of the sale on Friday to make sure you don't miss out.
This is a very powerful piece of advice and honestly does work
