Blog - Member Spotlight: Catherine Bullivant Shares How Fitness Training for Women Can Improve Your Life
“I’ve always loved team sports and being active, but wasn’t very successful in a whole-body approach to my exercise. When I joined She FITNESS I thought it would be a good chance to push me out of my comfort zone and help me tone up, and if not it would be a bit of fun with my workmates at lunch.”
Quoting her back when she just started training with She FITNESS, journalist Catherine Bullivant would like to share her experience and inspire everyone on what she had achieved after a year since she joined the community and started fitness training for women.
I love geeky indoor things like writing and reading, but also very much an outdoors person. I play oztag, for fun and competitively at tournaments and love long walks with my hubby and dog. I love being outdoors with a group of lovely, like-minded girls and putting some fun into training! The compassionate and sincere trainers make you work hard, and reward you with lots of encouragement and positivity, and give you the results you’re after.

Nine months later and I have the arm definition and strength I dreamed of and the abs I thought I would never see again! The training is so far from a boot camp – it’s supportive and encouraging and somehow manages to be fun. It’s a great feeling finishing a session, and even better when people notice the results…plus who doesn’t love wearing hot pink?
Since starting with She FITNESS I have shed the layer of “me” I got used to carrying around, and discovered muscles I forgot about. I feel stronger, happier, healthier and notice I am not puffed or exhausted as easily as I used to be. But the little improvements are just as important, and pushing myself that little bit extra each session has given me the most unexpected results…best of all I have been able to maintain a healthy weight without cutting out all the good stuff.
I have always loved being active, but this has changed the way I approach actual exercise – knowing it can be fun, enjoyable and incredibly rewarding.
Goals for 2011
