Seeing people change their lives for the better is what keeps us going!
"Recently I completed a 21 day holistic health and fitness challenge set me by my personal trainer Nick Ellson. It covered 6 areas of health - nutrition, movement, hydration, thoughts, sleep and breathing.
Some I found quite easy, as I already exercise regularly and have a balanced diet. Other aspects were a challenge, particularly remembering to stop and channel my thoughts (one week was a 'gratitude' challenge) and to do the breathing exercises (also really help with sleep). And in week 3, I was so crazy busy that I wondered if I would be able to do any of the new challenges - but to my great surprise and pride, although I didn't necessarily take on new things that week, the habits I had learned in weeks 1 and 2 (such as really committing to 2 litres + of water per day and reducing sugar and caffeine intake) stayed with me and helped me to continue to feel great throughout a stressful busy week.
I really recommend this challenge to anyone who wants to develop better health and lifestyle habits as the things I learned in those 21 days continue to guide my life".
"This is a big shout-out to personal trainer, Nick Ellson, for all that he brings to our group PT session each week. Underlying his patient, kind, caring personality is a calm determination to help each and every one of us achieve our individual fitness, health and lifestyle goals.
Nick is so much more than a personal trainer; he is a motivator, a mentor and an educator who is committed to helping us achieve our best each and every day. Every PT session is well thought out and planned; no two sessions are ever the same".
My husband Scott and I have been doing PT sessions with Nick now for just over 2 years and we embarked on the 12 Week Busy Parents challenge this time round. I just wanted to say the impact it’s had on myself personally.
Prior to starting this challenge, I was probably drinking a Red Bull a day, if not every second day. I suffer from migraines from a benign brain tumour and the Red Bulls were what gave me relief from them. However, during the sugar free weeks I wanted to go without the Red Bulls and I can safely say I have not touched one now for more than 4 months. I feel better, I’ve got more energy, I’m able to get out of bed earlier in the morning and I haven’t had a migraine since I stopped taking them."
