Join the Tribe

034_WUS_19_06_14_IMG_1712 Last month I wrote a piece titled ‘Reclaim your Body’ – The message? To live healthfully and not chase the next fad or trend; to celebrate in your uniqueness, whatever your shape or size and to train and eat well, not because you hate your body but because you LOVE your body!

This is something I feel very strongly about when it comes to female fitness and health; with so many mixed messages, unrealistic images in the media and weight loss pills flying about, so many people I speak to, simply feel lost in it all!

As I am writing this, there is a report on the radio about a young girl who tragically died from taking too many diet pills. This upsets and angers me…Firstly because people are creating these toxic & dangerous pills to sell and secondly because a young girl has become so insecure about her body at a young age that she felt she had to take extreme measures which cost her, her life.

Something needs to change and I want to affect positive change as directly as possible in the hope that it can make a difference to the way that women see and train their bodies… 032_WUS_19_06_14_IMG_1707 055_WUS_19_06_14_IMG_1835 So, as I head into chapter two of my freelance PT life, I am excited to launch Frankie Holah’s Bootcamp.

Female Calisthenics Movement: Media Moment

WH3

2015 really feels like the year of bodyweight training (aka calisthenics), the style of training that I have been involved in and promoting for the past couple of years.

I have seen bodyweight training open up unexplored opportunities for women and men keeping fit, without the need for a gym membership or lots of equipment.. With busy lifestyles, this style of training removes plenty of barriers and for those just starting their fitness journey, it allows them to build confidence, body awareness, and realize their inner bad ass!!

On a personal level, I love the freedom and creativity of training with nothing but my own bodyweight.Whether I am in a park, at my flat or on the go, I can keep fit! I make the world my gym!

It is great to see female calisthenics in the media and I was delighted to appear on Women’s Health as a Female Ambassador for Calisthenics.

Here’s to more women reclaiming their bodies and getting fit and strong bodyweight style, both in 2015 and beyond!

Reclaim your Body!

IMG_2213

Ladies it’s time to take our power back and reclaim our bodies. With Summer around the corner, let’s make it the season of the Warrior Woman!

For too long we’ve been sold the wrong message about what female fitness is. The simple truth is, it’s about health, strength and dedication. Happiness, confidence and the body you deserve are just the great by products.

When it comes to fitness, there’s an athlete in all of us and it’s definitely time for her to shine. We need to train her well, feed her well and treat her well – The rest and recovery matters as much as the sweat and reps.

It is so easy to be hyper-critical of our bodies with so many photoshopped and filtered images flying around, which makes it even more important to remember that we’re all unique in shape and size. Not only should we celebrate this, but our baseline objective should be to live healthfully and not for the next fitness fad or trend.

Throughout my training journey, experience has shown me that I am happiest and healthiest both in mind and body, when my goal is not based on achieving a look, but running a faster time than last week or adding one more pull up than I thought possible. Nothing beats that feeling of achievement and when you are making progress and enjoying what you do, the rest just follows…

So, whatever your fitness level and whatever your shape, train to suit what YOU want to achieve, with YOUR health and happiness at the heart and in a way that YOU enjoy.

Train and eat well not because you hate your body but because you LOVE your body!!! Channel that inner Warrior Woman!!!
