The Biggest Change For Me Has Been The Change In My Mindset
As I child, I spent 10 years as a gymnast. This all came to an end after a back injury which left me in years of physio, chiro and a major attitude and burnout towards exercise.
Over the past 15 years, I have always had a “gym membership” – and I was really good at donating to the facility – to say I attended even once a month would be ambitious. I had joined gym challenge after gym challenge and was left bitter to say the least.
After coming off the back of yet another gym challenge, feeling depleted, more overweight, less inspired and increasingly negative, my mum asked me to sign up for a Beachside Challenge with her.
I said no.
I said no on at least 5 occasions.
But thank goodness, persistence prevails.
I said “Yes, as long as we actually commit. I am not spending more money to not show up and feel worse about myself”
Needless to say, I caught the Beachside bug pretty early on and have been addicted ever since!
The biggest thing for me was the culture. I have never been a fan of gyms because they tend to breed ego. Beachside, being completely unique in culture breeds acceptance, family, support, encouragement, genuine care.
Being a member of Beachside has played a huge part in my physical journey, but the biggest change for me has been the change in my mindset.
One of my favourite quotes says, “be kind to yourself, and then let your kindness fill the world.”
Beachside has helped me to be kind to myself, and it’s out of that capacity that every other aspect of my life has benefited – family life, friendships, my capacity at work and overall attitude….and now my biggest mission is to encourage others to also learn to be kind to themselves & see their world transformed!
I Hated How Clothes Looked On Me
I hated what I looked like. I felt unworthy of being loved. I felt depressed.
I hated when I was invited out to parties or functions because I hated how clothes looked on me. The whole decision on what I would wear was so stressful because I didn’t feel comfortable in anything. I would often cry I felt very disappointed in my self that I had let myself get to this place.
When I joined Beachside in August 2016 that was the time I decided I was sick of feeling this way. That’s when my life changed for the better and I made time for myself again. Since then I have become stronger and healthier and a way happier person. I feel like I have found myself again. I enjoy workout again and I love who I am again thanks to Beachside Personal Trainers. I love that everyone is so welcoming!
I’ve lost over 20kgs and 6 dress sizes!
I started my very first challenge with Beachside just over 12 months ago. I couldn’t even run 1km and don’t even get me started on the bootcamps.
I weighed almost 100kg and was so unfit and unhealthy.
At one of my first bootcamps, I’ll never forget another client helping me along- I was mid panic attack because I was so unfit and I couldn’t breathe. He pushed me through and said to me “you will be so fit in a few months time and look back and think wow how things have changed” and they definitely have.
During the first challenge I lost 5.3kg and was so happy I started crying after finding out my results.
Since then I have lost over 20kg and have gone from a size 16 to a size 10.
I can run a km now and many more and as much as I hate to admit it, I have started to actually enjoy running which I used to refuse to do!
I have achieved so many things I never thought I would be able to do, even being able to do proper pushups!
I seem to keep hitting one goal after the next which is so exciting and over whelming.
Through Beachside I have learnt a lot about my self and what I am capable of and have continued to push myself and will keep doing. I find I am more determined than ever since I am seeing results and I couldn’t imagine not training anymore. I love getting up in the morning and starting my day with training. Before Beachside I was never a morning person.
I am so so grateful for all the trainers who have helped me along my journey and to the amazing people I’ve trained with that have supported me to keep going.
I never thought I’d be where I’m at today. I feel strong and healthy and just want to keep improving myself for the best!
I Realised I Had To Do Something
I had always done some form of exercise but it was basically only walking until recently when I started at Beachside. I was eating ok but probably too much and I was defiantly consuming too much alcohol. I was making excuse after excuse as to why I wasn’t happy with my current state.
Then last Christmas we were away on our annual holiday with friends and family and Regina was telling me all about this awesome group she had joined called BEACHSIDE and the great people there… It was that moment that I realised I had to do something and I have not looked back since.
We have managed to work around all my injuries and strengthen them and I have even started running again! I am hoping to run a half marathon next year- something I have always wanted to achieve.
Weight loss and toning was defiantly something I wanted to achieve and I have, but I have gained sooo much more…
I Can Feel Myself Getting Stronger Each Session
I started Beachside in February on a challenge because my friend Megan had been nagging me to try it for ages. I had been having nightmares for about 8 years and hardly slept most nights and I had never exercised in my life. At 59kgs I knew I was skinny but I hated looking at my body in the mirror and it felt so out of reach to ever have a body that I liked.
I was so scared to start because I thought there would be people judging my body and my fitness level. But I was greeted by such a group of welcoming kind and supportive people at Beachside my worries were straight away put to ease. By week three of the challenge I was absolutely hooked on my new healthy lifestyle and friends!
My family saw the change in me and my step daughter, Maddie, decided to join with me. Exercising together started to build such a great bond and promoted such a healthy lifestyle at home that we’ve never looked back. With much hassling from Maddie and I, my husband Jay came along for a trial. Since then Our whole life has completely changed in a way I never thought was possible-
I sleep every night, I feel good when I see a fit person standing in the mirror, our little family has become so much closer and I have made some amazing friends and can’t believe the support I have received from the trainers, especially with my back issues, the trainers helped me realise what I could still do, how I can still get stronger even with an injury like that and what an achievement it was. They helped me learn to listen to my body and learn when to push myself.
I am now 54.5 kg and swell as the regular classes I aim for 3 stretch and sessions a week. It has made such difference to my healing and I can feel myself getting stronger each session and able to achieve things that at first I was scared to do.
