Meet a Shape Up Mum – Rachel

Hi I’m Rachel, Mummy to William 3.5years and Sophie 11 months and I’ve been with SUM since February this year.

After five years of fertility struggles and two long hard pregnancies I made a promise to myself after the birth of my daughter last September to get my life and body back, since then I have lost 33 kilos and attend Jacqui’s 6am Wednesday class every week without fail! It’s a priority, not even winter will stop me!

I absolutely love training at that time and no matter what may happen for the rest of the day with two little people I know I have trained and my energy from it is fantastic!

Jacqui is so encouraging, motivating and full of knowledge, I look forward to it each week.

I also attend Tuesday and Thursday morning in the holidays with both children and its fantastic for all of us. Fresh air and exercise and whilst Sophie sleeps William gets to play with other children, run around and sometimes help out a bit, we are all happy!!

It’s so important to me to be a healthy energised role model to my children and when William see’s me train he is keen most days to do his exercise’s just like Mummy which I love.

The classes are different each week which keeps me highly motivated and I love that’s whilst it’s group training the classes are still small enough for personalised attention.

I am so happy with how far I have come since starting with SUM, I am so much fitter, stronger and happier and my fitness improves every week. I’m excited with what’s still to come!

Rachel
