Well done Naomi Donohue- your looking great !

Written by

Wow !! 

Naomi has lost 2 STONE lbs !!! 

We want to congratulation Naomi for all her hard work. She is looking amazing feeling great and her fitness has fed improved since starting Fitjoy. Naomi tells us a little about herself 

"I started back in October with Fitjoy but just dabbled in the odd class here and there. In January I joined with the £40 for 2 months ( such great value for money)! And have signed up monthly now which is still brilliant value for money considering I do 3-4 classes a week.

Since January I have lost 2 stone and 2 lbs
I feel fitter, healthier, stronger and of course can see a massive difference in my clothes which is fab!

The classes I love are Clubbercise, Zumba, Zumba Tone, have recently tried strong by Zumba and kettlebells, I prefer the dance style classes as feels like time goes really quickly and I love learning a new routine. it's great to know there are options like kettle bells/ box fit etc that will take me out of my comfort zone and challenge me more as I still have a way to go with with fitness and weight.

 Everyone at Fitjoy is extremely friendly and welcoming, there is such a mix of ages, shapes, abilities and everyone seems to really support each other. The instructors are amazing! Natalie, Mel, Sophie and Jo are easy to follow, great fun, and always show us how to make it harder/ easier which is fab! I really look forward to the classes in the evenings and hope to try out Jo's dance fit soon too. Its also great to not have to prebook classes, with two young children sometimes it's difficult to plan in advance!

I tell everyone about Fitjoy as over the years I have tried most classes, gym etc and these are by far the most fun and best value for money that I have come across!"

An Interview with...James Temple

Written by

James Temple is a Personal Trainer and an Instructor at Fitjoy  

WHAT’S YOUR ATTITUDE ABOUT BEING FIT AND HEALTHY?

My attitude to being fit and healthy is simple. I believe we all have to be striving to become the best version of ourselves. Everyone's starting point will be different, focus on yourself and small daily improvements and don't spend too long comparing yourself to others.  Fitness and Health are not a choice, it should be a priority. Sooner or later you will have to make time for it.

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO WORK IN FITNESS?

I began work in fitness and health simply because I love helping people and feel I can make a difference. 

TELL US ABOUT THE CLASSES YOU TEACH AND THEIR BENEFITS?

I teach a wide range of classes from HITT which is awesome for an intense, heart rate raising and fat burning workout to kettlebell training which is great for strength, functional strength and mobility! 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MANTRA?

My favourite mantra…. Rise and rise again until lambs become lions (never give up) 

james3
 

WHO OR WHAT GIVES YOU INSPIRATION?

People that give me inspiration are people who started with very little and created lasting legacy, and anyone who is positive and trying to better themselves daily. Jay-z, Garrain Jones 

WHAT IS YOUR TYPICAL DAILY NUTRITION?

Daily Nutrition Breakfast. 

Breakfast Smoothie- Herbalife Formula 1 Sport, PDM, Frozen Fruit, avocado, whole milk, Spinach, pumpkin seeds. Mid morning… Eggs, Cottage cheese on oatcakes, protein bar. Lunch…. Salads, homemade stews, 

Mid afternoon. Herbalife Rebuild strength (post workout shake) Dinner varies… always healthy, always home cooked (I love to cook), often from the sea. 

Throughout the day I drink Coffee (good quality) water with aloe and herbal team (Thermo) 

WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?

What makes me happy…. the sea, animals, beach soccer, family and travel 

 

WHAT’S THE LAST THING YOU WATCHED ON TV?

I don't watch a lot of TV, but one thing I love is Planet Earth One thin

ONE THING YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT? 

I can't live without…… Natalie (love of my life)

Congratulations Clare Bear

Written by

Wow Clare you look fantastic ! 

We would like to congratulate Clare Bear for all her efforts with her weight loss journey she has now lost over 2 stone.. 

I was introduced to James Temple to start Personal Training, I thought if I don't set myself a goal, I would never do !!

I Have to admit it was a huge step for me as I have not exercised in years. So I was very apprehensive initially , but I have to say it was the best decision I ever made. James made me very welcome and I am loving the sessions. Even my Physio has remarked what a huge difference it has made to my physique and feeling so much better, so much more energy and fitter. Clare has also been working with wellness coach Jennie Bradley using Herbalife to help with the incrediable results ...

 The motivation, encouragement and support from James and Jennie has been amazing. It has truly changed my life completely. Loving this xx ❤️????? ❤️

5 Benefits of Group Exercise

Written by

The Five Benefits of Group Exercise. 

There are lots of benefits to group exercise .. both for experience fitness goers and for people just getting into fitness. The allocated time of the session means you can't get distracted with work/family or chores when your there for an hour you work out for that hour. There is lots of support in a group classes and you will get great results .. heres why... 

1. Accountable/ Motivation - When your in a class enviroment being surrounded by others helps provide accountablity and motivation. The loud music helps you keep up with the combinations, Watching your skilled instructor and other people in the class will motivate you to keep up with the pace. 

2. Inreased Enegry - Whatever class you choose from the instructors encourgement and enthusasim will help you feel energised. The release of the endorphines will keep you feelng energised for the rest of your day. Your be more productive at work and generally more happy. 

3. Improve your technique - In a group class you have access to a fitness professional. This person will be spotting your technique and offering alternatives, progressions and feedback on your technique. Instructors are friendly and approachable and always on hand at the end of the sessions for any questions. This will increase your confidence.

4. Socialise / Build freindships and community - You have the opportunity to meet others, share tips and feel part of something. 

5. Variation - Instructors do all the planning! They make up the class material to make sure you get a well rounded workout. Instructors are passionate about getting you results. 

 

We’ve all experienced the effect that music has on us during a workout. Running without your playlist is completely different than going for a run with earbuds in, blasting Ariana Grande’s ‘Side To Side’. Recently, bigwig tech company LG studied the effects of music on a workout for further insight. The results prove what we already know.

91% of people surveyed said that music is vital to their workout, claiming that they need it more while exercising than while commuting or even showering. And 87% of respondents said listening to music during exercise helps them work out longer, have more energy, and have a more effective workout overall.

Knowing all this, it’s no wonder that so many people flock to Zumba® classes all week, where the workout literally relies on the playlist. Listening to music and dancing along makes you feel more like you’re at a party than at the gym, meaning you can go for longer without even realizing it.

Want to take it one step further? Try new program STRONG by Zumba®. Program creators and producers like Timbalandreverse-engineered their process with this one, meaning the routines were created first, and then music was produced to perfectly match the moves performed. So, your burpees, punches, and squats are synced to a corresponding beat. It’s called synced music motivation and it helps you learn to let the music be your guide instead of focusing on counting reps. Cool, right?
