Amy, senior fitness advisor at our Livingston health club talks about her lockdown experiences and how she used it to her advantage.
She says: “I didn't set out to lose weight, I was confident in my weight and size before. Being in fitness I was exercising daily and was happy with my fitness level.
Being in lockdown was a challenge mentally for myself. The first lockdown I did a lot of running did not focus on diet and lost routine. In the second lockdown it was Winter, and I needed to keep moving and not get lost in the lockdown. I turned to my lifting club for Zoom lifting classes and making a routine. I made sure I got up every morning for the class, I trained on my own, followed my programme and then before my dinner every night I also did another class. This kept me moving and allowed me to fall in love with change.
I used lockdown to work on myself and came out mentally and physically stronger.
I didn't stick to a diet. I cleaned up my eating and organised what I was eating and when. I just made healthier choices. Being fitness qualified, I managed to figure this out by myself and set a better structure.”
Amy’s message to members - "There are no giant steps that can get you there, but consistent small steps can"
