It felt like a long build up, but our 'Train the Trainer' event finally happened on Sunday 25th March and what a day it was! It had everything: motivation, support, crawls, jumps, lifting weights, and burning thighs!

Are you stuck, and if so, why?

What’s the thing in life that propels us forward to achieve new goals, whether they are in weight loss, career, or relationship-related?

What is a goal?
 
Well, let’s actually start with what is NOT a goal…

We see it here at Empowered Fitness all the time.  Someone has just joined us and there’s the dreaded look when we ask them to step on the scale.  For so many people, that number has determined their mood, happiness levels, and even their self worth for many years.

With social media being so popular these days, it could be easy to believe that the majority of people in the world have chiselled abs and super toned bodies all year round, when in fact this really isn’t the case!

It can be quite demoralising if you’re constantly seeing this content when you’re at the start o...
