|it is precisely the unthinkable that must be thought

Final Bronze 26.17
To say I am over the moon isn’t enough and still now it is all sinking in, I think it might take a while and you’ll definitely be hearing me talk of my journey more over the next few weeks. From injury, broken spikes, being strong, to that pre-race glass of wine ?
So I dared to dream and achieved the unthinkable.
One of the questions I’m often asked is, “How do you do what you do with running a business and a single mum to 3 children and competing at that level?”
One huge motivator is obviously my children, to inspire them to dare to dream and achieve the unthinkable in whatever they want in life.
But also it’s my work, I’ve and breathed fitness since my early teens (honestly not always running, but the gym, attending then teaching group fitness classes.) Health & fItness is my passion and I am lucky enough to live my passion through my work.
I believe that life is about balance and of course I align myself to walking the walk alongside talking the talk but to achieve the unthinkable your mindset has to be clear, your values must be the driver of your decisions, and your goals must light a passion in you that even the biggest of mountains couldn’t stop you from reaching them.
I’ve spent months not only training hard but ensuring my cup of health (mental, emotional and physical) stays full. Removing those drainers, surrounding myself with cheerleaders, working my training round the barriers of every day life and ensuring my health remains a priority.
So I encourage you to dream the life you want, surround yourself with the right people, your cheerleaders, let your goal be your driver in your decisions and dare to reach for the top of your mountain.
With a fabulous team at Elite Conditioning we are all here and ready to be your cheerleaders. From our virtual studio, face to face groups and just 2 spaces left on our Project You September intake you too could be achieving the unthinkable by the end of 2022.
