Making it Important

Make it Happen
On the second Sunday of the month it was the first Fly Girls RunTogether meet for 2018, nine of us turned up ready to get active at Wembley Stadium, no matter the cold weather this morning. It's around about this time, the middle of the first month that we tend to forget our new year resolutions and goals we wish to achieve for the year. However our team were vibrant this morning and we talked about running goals individually and what 5km races we could do together as a group at our brief meeting before our warm up.  Here's a few tips on making sure you make it happen for an active 2018.

New You for New Year

Fly Girls Fitness for You

It's the best time to join in new groups and activities in January, one because you are not on your own as most of us start new things this month and also because this is an economical way of getting active. You'll be sure of burning fat and not your bank account if you decide with signing up to new gym membership. The benefits are many such as being part of a community, making friends who cheer you along and this really helps you get through the winter months together. So come fly with us on the weekends at Wembley if you want to:

Crossing into 2018

Review, reflect and be ready

As we close the chapter of 2017, it's time to review and be grateful for the blessings and challenges encountered during the year. Each of us have our own personal challenges to confront and as a community of runners we set goals in the first week of January. By affirming aloud our intentions we were accountable to each other. Listen here

Fly Girl Lene's story

She believed she could so she did

Lene before

Fifteen months ago I started out on my fitness journey and haven’t looked back since. The time had come to take my health a lot more serious, instead of just coasting along believing my body could take care of itself. At some point the body will answer back and tell you enough is enough and then it really is time for you to listen. I had to make some big changes if I wanted to stay mentally and physically fit. I found out about a local community fitness group and decided to try out the circuit training session one Monday evening. Well…what can I say…what a shock to the system that was! Never had I imagined that exercising could be so enjoyable. This was a fantastic group of people oozing energy and having so much fun together while sweating buckets. The personal trainer and the members made me feel so welcome, which I was immensely grateful for, as it was my first time in a group exercise like this one. The motivation, support and fun element in the group was the deciding factor that this was the way to go for me. It was the first step towards a personal fitness journey that has given me the inspiration and motivation to ‘keep going’ and not give up even when the going gets tough.
