Well, I’m certainly looking forward to the 4 day Jubilee Celebrations and most certainly the break
I’ve been busy filming a couple of Vlogs (video blogs) which I’ve posted on here for you to take a peak at.
Don’t forget that I am on holiday next week so there are NO CLASSES until 11th June ;-o
4-Week Regan Method Bootcamp
If you’ve not seen the dates for the next 4-Week Regan Method Bootcamp or your thinking of dusting up your body then take a look at what other people said about it.
Niki has now lost an AMAZING and easily maintained weight loss of 3 1/2 stone !
Dizzie has lost almost 2 stone in just as many bootcamps !
I had to share this amazing testimonial from Suzy …. thank you so very much for taking the time to write this x
thanks for this and all the other motivating emails you’ve been sending – it’s great to see what fantastic results can be achieved by people who really go for it! I’m sorry I had to rush off early on Thursday, but I had committed to another meeting by mistake. Anyway, I thought you’d appreciate some written feedback – feel free to publish bits of it wherever it makes sense to you.
I have found your Pilates classes and the two bootcamps I’ve attended truly life-changing and really appreciate all the guidance and enthusiasm you’ve provided. I started gaining weight about five years ago, when I worked full-time and had a long commute. Even though I took lunchtime pilates and yoga classes at work each week and walked the dogs/did the gardening at weekends, I could not get the weight to shift. It just went very gradually up, which made me very unhappy, because I’d always been slim and couldn’t understand what was happening to me. I saw a photo of myself on holiday one summer and got really depressed.
What made a huge difference when I started coming to your classes was a) the way you teach – making sure everyone used the correct muscles and didn’t compensate/cheat, and b) the dietary advice that came with the bootcamp. Although we’ve always had a fairly sensible diet and I didn’t commit major ‘sins’, I could really feel a change in me once I eliminated bread, potatoes and other starchy foods. The intensive cardio workouts were a shock to my system to begin with (I could hardly get out of bed a few times last summer!), but it was clearly what my body needed in order to start changing back.
For me, that change has been very gradual – probably because I hadn’t gorged myself in the first place there was no ‘easy’ elimination such as chocolate, cakes or beer that would make a difference fast. However, once I broke through the 60kg barrier the trajectory continued gently but consistently downwards. I’ve maintained this momentum by sticking to sensible eating habits, and it’s been no hardship. I do eat a piece of cake occasionally and have a glass of wine with dinner at weekends, but the rest of the time I’ve shifted the emphasis in meals to proteins and fresh vegetables. The potato bin tends to stay empty these days, and our consumption of bread has gone down dramatically.
All this is easier now that our children no longer live at home. It is so tempting to start eating like a teenager when you’re surrounded by them. Giving up a stressful job and cutting out the commute also made a big difference – I sleep better and I move a lot more as a result. As you always say: it’s all about making life-style adjustments. But I also think that even if I went back into a full-time career again (God forbid!), I would ensure I had a tough daily workout built into my schedule, because I now know I need it and it really works.
So thank-you Julie, joining Pilates and joining the bootcamps with you was the best decision I made since coming back to the UK! – Oh, and the colder weather really helps, you know. Heat makes you sluggish!
