Nope, I have not gone mad, I am fully aware it isn’t actually 2020 yet…but as I have dropped my eldest off for her first day back at Pre-school, it did feel like a bit of a new start.
Most of the summer holidays are over…the weather is definitely not err…’summery’ any more! Most people can get back to some kind of routine…so it actually makes sense (maybe more so than January) for the new year to start in September.
You see, with kids back, routine back, new starts for some, along with the fact that you have maybe eaten and drank a little too much over the summer hols, now is the perfect time to focus on your fitness, nutrition, lifestyle, overall YOU and what you want to achieve.
It’s the perfect time to look at your goals, your body shape goals, fitness goals, lifestyle goals, what clothes you want be fitting into and how you want to feel when you look in the mirror…? Or maybe thinking about how you may have felt in your swimwear on hols…makes you want to do something about it, starting now?
So my ‘back to school’, ‘New Year’ September question to you is…
What are you going to do to re-focus your efforts?
Are you going to join a gym, are you going to join a new class, are you going to follow a nutrition plan (that works for you long term ), are you going to try a new way of training, are you going to put specific times in your diary where you do something for YOU, are you going to introduce a couple of new habits, are you going to walk each day, are you going to measure your water intake, are you going to keep a food diary, a gratitude journal…or maybe you are going to get a PT to help and support you (I know some of the best…ha TEAM Studio Twenty 3).
Whatever you are going to do, make sure you take some small actions towards what you want today/this week and let’s get off to a flying start in my version of the New Year!
And if you do want all of the above then you may as well grab your ‘September, New Year’ FREE Transformation Session with one of the team at ST3, who are ready to help you smash it, refocus and guarantee results …Grab it here>>>

Lots of you had questions about protein as a supplement. Some of you even tried the Awesome Whey
protein that we stock. The description is in the title but is often forgotten. It is called a supplement and not a replacement.
Massive well done to Jo for smashing her 12 Week Shape Up Challenge.
Jo claimed the prize of 4 x Personal Training sessions by producing the best before and after picture.

Nikki had joined her parents on a couple of Personal Training sessions before taking up a FREE Trial on our Monday night Small Group Training class. Nikki started to get the fitness bug again and without any real attention to her diet, had lost around 7kg. This was a great starting place for Nikki. In March of 2018, she decided to take it to the next level and book her very own Personal Training sessions to support her Small Group Training, which she was now attending twice a week. From March to November Nikki lost a further 19kg, making a whopping total of 27.7kg weight loss. That's 4.5 stone or 61lbs.
Weight loss has not been the only benefit of Nikki's journey. Nikki's knocked 8 minutes off her Park Run time and can now run 10km comfortably, without knee pain. Nikki feels more comfortable in her clothes which has increased her confidence in and out of work. Nikki now enjoys joining her friends on weekend activities like Go Ape, which previously she would have been very apprehensive about. Nikki has enjoyed learning more about how her body works and what she needs to do each week to get the results she desires. Nikki feels happier and more confident than ever. She is about to resume Fencing, a sport she previously loved but had been put off due to her weight. Nikki is also the same weight now that she was 7 years ago. A fantastic achievement and according to Nikki, there is still room for improvement.
A Note from Nikki,
"I've been training at Studio Twenty 3 with Gareth and the team for almost a year now and the changes I've seen have been unbelievable! I've lost 27.7kg (4 stone) and dropped 3 dress sizes but more importantly I feel so much stronger, fitter and with more energy."
See the rest of her review and reviews from other people on google.

Christmas is fast approaching, and I can already see on my clients how anxious they get about undoing all their hard-earned results this year. Are you also dreading Christmas Day and all the food and have already decided you won’t enjoy a bit of it to make sure you maintain your weight? I would advise otherwise. Christmas is for appreciating quality time with family and enjoying lovely food.
If you look in the mirror and are unhappy with your body or you constantly feel weak, you probably want to do something about it. You might have already considered strength training and more exercise, but you’re put off by the pain you have previously experienced. We’ve all heard horror stories about the pain and injuries experienced after strenuous exercise. However, with the right foods in your diet, you can prevent or significantly reduce this problem.
Are you tired of not having the body shape or figure that you desire? Are you fed up of constantly feeling weak after climbing a few flights of stairs? Secretly, you want to be fitter, stronger and to look in the mirror with pride at your beautiful physique. If this sounds familiar and you want to become fitter by your next birthday, it’s time to start thinking about weight training. Those two words may fill you with fear and dread, but they shouldn’t. Weight training could be the answer to all your fitness problems.
