IFS Energised Round Up & Great Links…

What a beautiful weekend, I hope you enjoyed the sunshine?  Firstly a HUGE WELL DONE to all my Energised Clients who completed the Sports Relief 1, 3 or 6 mile run, especially Tina! Super stars…

Whilst this was going Team Energised headed up to Blackpool to the International Fitness Showcase organised by Chrysalis Promotions, Ceri Hannon, Steve Watson and Co.  I have been going since 2006 and it is the most amazing weekend, filled with such a huge range of brilliant workshops, classes and passion. Each year it seems to grow and get better and better.

Below is a round up of the people we know and work alongside, what we recommend and a taster of little tweaks to the Energised classes!  You can never stop learning and it is our aim to always deliver the best service to inspire our clients and help YOU to achieve your results quickly, whilst having fun!

Our recommendations, amongst many!

1. Jenny Burrell http://www.burrelleducation.com/ – Twitter @MsJennyBurrell

Brilliant Pre and Post Natal Refresher Workshop using the Power Plates, functional, effective, fat burning sessions in 20mins which gives you results. This lady really knows her stuff, and I can highly recommend her courses if you are a fitness professional. EP Coach Sarah & Kim are available for Pre & Post Natal 1;1 Sessions, and will be running 6 week courses from later in the year. Register your interest now and see Sarah’s previous blog (about 4 postings back) on her training with Jenny.

2. Jayne Nicholls: http://www.freestylefitness.com/index.php Twitter: @JayneNicholls

Brilliant 5 min Fat Loss Workout – Tabata Style! Find out more here: http://tabatatraining.org/

Based on short, intense periods of high intensity exercise developed in Japan for speed skaters, this is guaranteed to Burn Fat Fast. Jayne worked us hard, yet it was great fun! To get the benefit you really have to push it, and ask yourself, ‘when you think you have reached your limit, could you go past your limit?’  I loved it and we will be integrating this into some Energised Summer Intensive Sessions for sure.

Jayne used music from www.globalfitnessmusic.com which I would highly recommend checking out, developed by Paul Glazby and Kelly Rennie – check her site out for great recipes and workouts too: http://www.kellyrennie.com/ Twitter: @KellyRennie

3. Spinning – Sarah Morelli & The Master Instructor Team including Michelle, Sandro, Mark, Mel, Lauren, Barry, Johnny, Les & Co!

Visit: http://www.spinning.com Twitter: @morelli_sarah

As a Level 3 Instructor with Spinning I love going to their sessions, always filled with passion and energy, great structure and a good workout. Plus they pop a MYZone Heart Rate Monitor on you to check how hard you are working. Sarah is the Head Master Trainer in the UK and is without a doubt an awesome presenter. 2012 is all about the Tribal Spinning Team – so join Head Coach Kim later in the year for a Tribal Spin! Going to Energised for sure 🙂

4. Tri Planar Kettlebells with Premier Global Richard Scrivener: Visit: http://www.premierglobal.co.uk/courses/fitness/functional-fitness/tri-planar-kettlebell-training Twitter: @PTInternational

Without a doubt, in my opinion Richard is one of the best Trainers around for Kettlebell Training. Seriously worth a sessions or training with him, and Energised you are definitely going to benefit from our fine tuning workshop! Bring on the Alpha Bag, Kettlebell, Tabata Summer Fat Burn Mix…!

After a full on day’s training we headed to the Bollywood Awards Dinner (I can never recognise people when they are not in their gym kit!). I won the PT of the Year Award in 2007 (!) and would like to say a Massive Well Done to Katie Bulmer Fitness (Sunderland – check her out!) who won this year and a big congratulations to Camilla Aryton – Reach to Fitness (Short List) and Rob Suchet (Short List – Bath).  We mentor several PT’s and did one amazing session with Camilla so an extra well done to her!

So all that leaves me to say is a BIG THANK YOU to the Brilliant Team Ceri, Steve and Co – you rock! To all the people above and everyone else I caught up with, to Sweaty Betty and Shock Absorber for kitting me out (everyone was loving the electric pink and blue Sweaty Betty tops!) and to Team Energised…

Look out for a little twist to our sessions to give you the edge!

And if you would like to join Team Energised in 2013 you can book before July 2012 for 3 days for only £85.
