Having healthy active kids is really important to me.
Back in 2017 I was "head down, powering forward" running a busy family bootcamp and fitness studio. After passionately building Burn It fitness for over 12 intensive years things took a dramatic U-turn with a surprise pregnancy. It was time for a total change, big decisions had to be made so we sold our London business and finally took some time off to have a Son to complete our family.
Sport and fitness has always been a huge part of my life. Competing at County level in athletics and gymnastic, completing numerous road races,10k, half marathons and the London 2016 Marathon, which was by far my toughest challenge to date. It feels great to focus my body and mind at the same time. When I workout I have bags more energy! My kids see me bounding around and they have regularly joined me on runs and workouts.
The benefits of exercising together as a family is huge for us. We love leading by example, sharing special, quality time and enjoying physical challenges that develop all our competitive spirits.
I'm proud to say my 3 kids will enter adulthood with a healthy view of exercise, strong physical capabilities and a great understanding of nutrition and happy, family values. I'm instilling in them that the most important things in life are not things!
Seeing the impact working out together has on my own family has inspired me to help others workout together in an inclusive, fun and dynamic outdoor environment.
A Family Affair: Family Fit Club is now a Family affair with the kids helping me run the business too. Each one has their own roles and jobs to do from leading some of the team games to packing and un packing the equipment. I feel extra lucky that we not only get to workout together, connect with other local likeminded families but I also can encourage them to have an entrepreneurial mindset and develop business skills from such a young age.
