Good golly it’s a warm one!
It’s been a full on instant summer this week and Fit Campers have been trying to keep away from the heat by getting their sessions in early in the day, rather than later.
Since lockdown, when we introduced a daily 7am camp on Zoom, we’ve seen more people enjoy the first session of the day.
It’s obvious to state that 7am is better than 6am, but also 7am at home, is better than 6am at another venue which you have to drive to.
It’s made me see that a combination, a hybrid version of what we’ve been offering since the end of March is going to form part of our re-entry into lockdown easing.
With the government’s announcement this week that there are no more changes to large groups outside, we continue to remain online running our sessions via Zoom.
I know that we have clients desperate to get back outside, in a group to use the collective energy and social interaction as part of their Fit Camp experience.
But for now, we’ll continue as we are until we know for sure that we can come back safely, with guidelines so as not to draw attention to ourselves.
I spoke this week to our members on a Facebook live about the uncertainty of decisions made at this time. No sooner have you made a decision then guidelines and recommendations are changed.
I’ve learned that I need to accept a period of constant change as we ease back into a normal life and asked our campers to be ready for that too.
Given that we’re in a period of constant change it’s nice when you can control something.
We can play a large part in impacting and controlling our health and this week I’ve seen two versions of this.
In our Metabolic Balance community one of my clients crossed the 5 stone weight loss mark this week. It’s fabulous enough, but that 3 of those were done in lockdown is even more impressive.
She said that she’d never have this opportunity again to really commit to her health and fitness goals whilst working from home with no other distractions. It’s truly admirable and I am delighted for her.
The control that Metabolic Balance gives you over your eating makes is really easy to be successful. Infact one of my newest clients said yesterday that she loved “the prescriptive nature of it. I can’t deviate or wonder if I’ve had too many syns or free foods”.
Since starting on Saturday she’s already seeing the benefits of a healthy, balanced meal plan on her health and attitude.
I first introduced Metabolic Balance to FastTrack Fit Camp 3 years ago after a chance discussion with a nutritionist. Part of my training was to follow the plan for myself for 12 weeks and experience the process.
Just to recap for those who don’t know, it worked! Not only did it allow me to lose 21lbs in 7 weeks, but it also identified a previously unknown thyroid condition which needed treating.
Over the last 3 years my health has improved, my medication has remained constant and I was curious to see what a plan for my, now known and medicated, condition would show.
I started my own Metabolic Balance programme again this week and am currently enjoying the first two weeks of rapid changes in health, shape change, weight loss (if desired) and energy.
I’ll share with you next week what the first 12 days delivered in terms of results and changes.
Our next Metabolic Balance information evening will be on Tuesday 14 July at 19.30 on Zoom. It’s a free event and open to all. Feel free to invite a friend to join in too.

Finally this week don’t forget that this Sunday marks the last complimentary Sunday Wake Up! sessions online. After a 3 month period of an open-to-all Fit Camp, we will be offering a Sunday only membership for online Zoom sessions from the sessions 5 July onwards.

And whilst I wasn’t up to see the sunrise on the longest day this week, I was out for a walk at dusk…
I wish you a healthy and happy week.
