AF Newsletter September 2012

16 Sep

Septmeber is here, how on earth did that happen so fast?! Needless to say i have been very busy over the summer months, not only with new and exisisting clients but also with my family life whilst the chidren have been off school its a hectic time just keeping them entertained as im sure many of you will know. Our best purchase during the holiday for keeping the girls busy, was a kitten….hours of fun!

Towards the end of June I began training a new client Janet twice a week at her home, who i am very pleased to say is achieving great results and is now already on her second block of sessions. Janets bodyfat percentage has dropped, the lean body mass has increased and her shape has changed with a total of 5.25inches lost overall from various areas. So well done Janet!

July I had a message from an old client that I used to train last year but who then stopped again due to work commitments. I am however very pleased to welcome back Amy. On our first round of results in just 5wks Amy had lost 7lbs in scale weight, and a total of 6.6inches lost from various areas of her body. We are really starting to see a difference now with both the fitness levels and the shape change so again keep up the good work Amy, we are due the second round of results and tests this week and i look forward to the results.I train Amy three times a week both in her home, at the gym with also usually a session of walking and light jogging around the local reseviour this teamed with sensible eating is helping Amy work towards her weight loss goals.

Also during July my client Louise and her husband Nick became proud parents to Millie rose, so a huge congratulations again to them both. I look forward to meeting Millie very soon.

August was a hectic month as its seen the start of the real work at our home, with a total re-wire of the house and knocking down of another wall, ‘dustville’ is where I reside… but it shall all be worth it in the end is the mantra i keep repeating to myself as i wade through the thick dust that covers every inch of my home and its contents. We were however lucky enough to attend the table tennis during the Olympic games in London at the excel centre. It was such an amazing experience and filled me with immense pride just to be able to witness these dedicated people finally being able to compete for what has been many years of training and preparation. The way in which these games were organised was faultless and team GB did exceptionally well and there is no doubt in my mind that they have indeed inspired a generation. I enjoyed every minute both whilst in London and watching on the tv, we didn’t watch anything else. The Para Olympics then went on to continue with the success for team GB, and had their best ever games. I think it has educated and opened people’s eyes and minds with regards to disabled people in a very positive way. I just wish that such sporting events could continue for us all to watch and enjoy, four years seems such a long time to have to wait.

My half marathon training is going well and with less than 40 days to go it needs to be! I shall be conducting my ‘Train the Trainer’ sessions betweenthe 20th september til the 20th of October for those of my my clients wishing to reverse the role and dish out the exercises in return for a donation for the event. More information on this and how to be one of the first to donate can be found of my page at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/AngelaHopton

Finally I dont wish to be like one of those annoying supermarket chains that have their christmas cards out already and easter cards out by January the 1st but its near enough only 100 days til christmas?! So if you have fitness goals or a desired size/shape you wish to return to, now is the time to make it happen to ensure you look and feel fab for santa season!

Please do get in touch to arrange a free consultation or pass on this email to anyone you think it maybe of interest to.

Yours for Good Health
