Hey! Thanks for dropping by! My name is Nicki – owner of Fit Inside Out.
Fit Inside Out is exactly what it says on the tin – it’s about being fit from the inside out, with an emphasis on eating and training for good health and longevity rather than for aesthetics. I am a huge advocate of strength training for a number of reasons:
- Function: To develop and increase your muscle mass – further protecting your bones as you get older as well as the obvious benefit of making you stronger, enabling you to get up, get out and get down
- To sculpt your body: Through strength training and nutrition, you can change the composition of your body
- For your mental wellbeing – this isn’t exclusive to strength training but exercise releases endorphins and serotonin that are mood boosters. If you exercise regularly, it can reduce stress and symptoms of mental health conditions like depression and anxiety
Don’t expect change to happen overnight. It doesn’t work that way. It takes commitment and consistency. Furthermore, don’t contact me because you only want to lose weight – you can do that without me by fixing your diet. One hour per week with me will not be enough. To see changes, you’ll need to train at least another 2 or 3 times without me (I will provide you with home or gym workouts so you know what to do) AND vitally, we will talk about nutrition and I will support you in choosing the right method and tools for achieving your goals
I absolutely love strength training and I love sharing my knowledge with people. I am a specialist in pregnancy and postpartum but I enjoy training all women, regardless of age or experience. My clients don’t get injured because I know how you should set yourself up for every lift, push or pull and I also ensure we do an optimal dynamic warm up at the start of your session and at least 10 minutes of stretching at the end of your session. I promise you, you will enjoy your session… once it’s over. 😉
