HI FIT2FITERS™ and Happy New Year.
Hope the Festive Season did not take too much of a toll on your waistline. If so, sort it out…now. Don’t wait. Think about a few lifestyle changes to assist matters. Here are a few tips:
- Go to bed half an hour to an hour earlier.
- Get up half an hour to an hour earlier.
- Have a cholesterol clearing breakfast. Porridge with dried fruit is good.
- Snack on fruit, not rubbish.
- If where you are going is less than half hour away, walk don’t drive.
- School run should be a walk not a drive if practical.
- Reduce stress, make time, stop rushing.
- Take a lunch break, Leave the office.. You are not that important!!.
Remember positive lifestyle change is the key to healthy living.
So what has been going on since we last spoke…?
In November Claire “Mojo” Burton competed at the World Natural Body Building Championships in Miami for Britain finishing in the Top Ten. Her meteoric rise in this demanding discipline has provided new challenges for her. We at F2F congratulate Claire on her tremendous achievement and wish her all the best for 2015.
FIT2FITE™ Instructors and advocates Ross Mathieu, Natalie Williams, Alton Brown, John Gardiner, Ady Gray, Aimee Sell, Kate Karwacinski, Chris Karwacinski, Chris Harris and Joe Kellaway returned from the World Championships without medals but with an experience that will set them all up for success in the near future. As Head of Delegation for the England Team I am incredibly proud of their effort and application.
November saw another successful FIT2FITE™ Instructors course with seven new Instructors taken through a myriad of emotions as they are put through their paces, technically, physically and intellectually to achieve their Instructors Certificate. FIT2FITE™ is about a quality product and all my Instructors represent the brand. Attaining and more importantly maintaining the standard is paramount.and we will see more vehicles for ensuring that in the New Year.
FIT2FITE™ again was immensely popular at the 3NESS Luxury FItness Weekend at the beautiful De Vere, Wokefield Park, Reading in November. As I was at the World Champs Claire “Mojo” Burton took three sessions and was exceptional as always . Great feedback from participants and massive rops to all at 3NESS who make this event not just a fitness weekend but a socialising experience like no other. Try it, you will not be disappointed. The next event is on 21-23rd February 2015.
December saw the Annual Fitness Finish to the year, the incomparable FIT2FITE™ Festive Frenzy sponsored by 3NESS. Again an incredible turnout with F2F enthusiasts ready to train. hard… with a smile. What a fantastic effort with everyone working their way through F2F, Circuits, Floorwork and the amazing Dianne Reilly to stretch and repair between sessions. Special thanks to the demo team of England Karate Internationals who as always left the crowd speechless with their skill and expertise. Let’s not forget our event champions Elite Fitness with Don and his team providing free electrolyte drinks throughout the day. The next event in the Summer see you all then.
New Dawn, New Day
So what else. Well FIT2FITE has now been up and running for 7 years and in that time it has grown to now boast over 140 qualified Instructors across the UK and abroad. This year will see the emphasis on building the brand with more connectivity, promotions, membership, merchandise, social media, information and support.
