I was looking to try a different approach to getting fitter and had heard about Burn It. I have always enjoyed keeping active and my main exercise was walking – training for events such as Moonwalk or the Kilt Walk, I have also been a gym member over the years too.
I felt I needed to do something different to help me improve fitness levels and help me manage with everyday life/work ‘ stress’, so I decided to join Burn It. I purchased a Flexi pass and turned up to give it a go, that was in February 2016. Since then I have definitely seen an improvement in my fitness levels, more toned, stronger, few pounds lighter and so much more motivated than ever before. I have seen the results and benefits from a twice weekly Burn It session.
The sessions are always different so I never get bored; running in particular I have got better at and have improved how long and how far I can run, which for me has been the greatest improvement and achievement. I struggled to imagine running a distance without stopping. I signed up for the Fitness Fun Day in January 2017. Part of the day includes a challenge to run a 10k in 1 hour. I managed to run 7k (without stopping!) and followed that by managing 8k at the April Fitness Fun Day, so just might manage 10k in 2017!
I honestly look forward to getting to my weekly sessions. I work out with a great group of people who are friendly and supportive; you work at your own level and as a group we encourage each other to achieve. The information, knowledge and support you receive from instructor (Paul) really has made a difference to me – from healthy eating advice, goal setting, technique improvement – has helped me in so many ways over the past year and I have definitely made positive lifestyle changes /choices as a result. Looking forward to achieving more in the months to come.
