I'm a busy mum with two young children & intense job. I’m throwing myself into this purely for me; my family & work priorities mean that I don't have much time for "self-care".

I'm motivated by seeing my physical progress & by achieving progressive overload, but mostly by how much better I feel mentally, just to be working out regularly.

My past motivates me, remembering where I started and why! I’m hoping to shred down a little bit & get back into the gym and back into the lifting spirit!

I'm motivated by challenging myself & overcoming them, setting goals & achieving them. I am hoping to shed the extra few lockdown pounds. I want to get leaner & stronger.

I've always loved working out and keeping fit, working at home is enjoyable but I've missed the gym atmosphere.

My 2 sons are my biggest motivator and I play Flanker for Bedford Blues Women's Rugby. I actively promote strong not skinny and think this shred will be the perfect balance and improve my sport performance.
