I’m Lois. I’m a personal trainer and fitness instructor from Manchester in jolly old England. I’m in my
late 30s and am utterly obsessed with working out, keeping healthy and living an active lifestyle.
I wasn’t always like this. That’s right, here comes my sob story!
I was a very overweight child. I wish I could upload a picture to show you just how much overweight
I was, but I’m pretty sure I’ve destroyed all the evidence! I won’t go into too much detail but I wasn’t
very happy as a child/teenager and I definitely turned to food and laziness to try and combat that. It
got to a point where I was probably eating about six full meals a day and spending most of my time
sat on the couch.
The big turnaround point for me was when I went on an outing with friends from work to Alton
Towers. I wasn’t really one for roller coasters but I like the idea of being social and I was so excited to
try something new. That excitement quickly turned to mortification as I got to the first ride and the
operator took one look at me and said: “you’re not going to fit”. I wanted to ground to swallow me
up, it was so embarrassing. I cried all night when I got home and the next morning I had a renewed
determination to change.
That was over ten years ago and I can’t believe I ever let myself get to that point. It’s madness to me
now, knowing that I could have been like this my whole life. And I feel great for it! Food was never
the answer to my problems, but it turned out a healthy lifestyle was!
I qualified as a PT four years ago and have progressed to become a manager and a very well known
and respected chain of gyms in the North West. I genuinely love helping people achieve their goals
and dreams and it gives me great pleasure to pass on my knowledge to my clients.
Now, I get to spread the word even further! Thank God for the internet! This blog is all about how I
stay fit, exercise tips, motivational posts and occasionally I’ll write something a little more personal
about what I’ve been doing in my spare time and day trips and products that I love.
(oh and occasionally, you’ll see a totally self-indulgent gym pic like this:)
It’s not to make you feel bad! It’s to encourage you and motivate you to do the same!
