This week is Australian Fitness Week which means #NoLazyFriends! What’s that all about? Well, Fitness First understand that as a fitness fanatic it can be difficult to convince friends to come along for the ride. So for the next two weeks, they are giving away a double personal training session each day.

If you want to give a lazy friend a kick up the backside, then tag your buddy in fitness posts on Instagram with #NoLazyFriends and @FitnessFirstAU. They even have some quotes ready to go on the website here. Fun hey?!

Australian Fitness Week

Oh and if YOU don’t have a gym membership, or want to check out one of the new Fitness First gyms, then you can get a free 7 day pass.

So what am I doing as a part of Australian Fitness Week and this Super Charged Challenge? I am super charging my own health and fitness! If you read my last post, you would know that my focus has not been as much on my nutrition and training as usual this year. I’ve just been sort of floating through the motions and not making the progress that I had planned. One of my goals for this year was to reveal the six pack, however that has definitely not happened yet!

Fitness First generously have given me a nudge in the right direction, by sponsoring a month of online coaching with my old personal trainer Chris Dufey. I like to try different things every so often and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work again with Chris. Sometimes all I need to do is take the step and “start something new” to make myself commit to it and refocus on my goals.

I’m just under a week into the plan with Chris and have dropped about 1kg so far, I’m not focused on the scales, but it’s a good sign of my body reacting well. The training has been super intense though, I was so sore by Friday!

For the first time in months, I’ve stuck to my nutrition and not been skipping meals or eating too much. Just a good balance. I haven’t been at all hungry and have had plenty of energy to fuel my training. It’s a good feeling when you are on track!

Getting quick meals in whilst working over the weekend. No excuses!

Oh and I also bought myself some new Nike kicks! A girl can’t get more inspired than by having new shoes!

Look! New shoes!

If you’re feeling a bit unfocused on your goals lately, or maybe you’ve fallen off track recently, then I want you to take this as a sign that it’s time to get focused again! Today. Your next meal. Your next workout. You are going to kick ass again! Ok?

This is one of the training sessions that I am doing with Chris at the moment. It’s chest and back, and I haven’t done it yet as I started halfway through the week … and I am NOT looking forward to those burpees. I hate burpees and pretty much refuse to do them. BUT since we are talking #NoLazyFriends that means I better not be lazy either.

Give it a whirl and let me know how you go!
