“I had struggled with losing weight and toning by going to the gym for quite some time…. it was not until I joined Bria’s zoom classes and improved my diet with Bria’s guidance during the COVID lockdown in March that I started to lose weight, gain strength and tone overall while having FUN! I look forward to each and every class!”
Something I have always struggled with in regards to my fitness and health is commitment and motivation. I typically will stick with an exercise schedule for a couple weeks or a couple months then completely “fall off the bandwagon” as they say! The same goes for maintaining a healthy diet. Working with Bria has helped me to quit making excuses as to why I can’t workout as I have made the appointment with Bria. Bria is excellent at helping you stay motivated throughout the entire workout!
In the three months I have been working out with Bria I have learned that I actually enjoy fitness, which I never ever thought I would say! I took about a two week break and couldn’t wait to start my next round of sessions!I have gained so much more confidence when it comes to my fitness level, as someone who is not super physically fit and overweight I would tend to shy away from going to the gym or fitness classes as I was embarrassed. The last three months have changed my outlook on myself and my body, now I feel like I can walk into a gym and confidently complete a circuit without feeling embarrassed.
I was devastated and outraged by the police murdering George Floyd in May of 2020, an innocent Black family man. There were many ways I could stand in solidarity with Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour and one of those ways was to seek out and support Black-owned local businesses. That’s how I found Bria.
Bria began helping me change my life for the better on July 1, 2020. Three times a week at the ‘crack of 7:00 am’ for the past six months Bria has been there for me, coaching me on, training my mind and body to do things I never thought I could with my tired, achy, aging, overweight body. I saw my family physician today and she didn’t recognize me. Yes, I had a mask on but she literally thought she had come into the wrong room and was astounded by the physical transformation that Bria has helped me achieve. Every time I would say, “I can’t do THAT”, Bria would say “YES, you can”. And then I would try it out, and sure enough, I could. Like that time I did the hand-stand thingy on the wall, or the one-minute plank, or even those hellish froggies. And then there was the 5 km run (she let me take breaks each kilometre), and the stairs at Lake Ontario park – 15 times, and the monthly 500-rep challenges, whaaat? Bria doesn’t make me do anything but she motivates me like no one else can.
As I look back on the past six-months, I remain deeply frustrated and saddened about the events of 2020, but I will continue to do all that I can to contribute to dismantling the racist society we live in. At the same time, I am so grateful that I met Bria. She has supported me on my journey towards living a healthier life. It’s no joke when I say I am looking forward to the next six months with Bria, adding some yoga into the mix as her ‘Bodies by ‘B Business grows, and making it to the 1000 rep challenge on June 30th, 2021 – (yep, Bria, let’s do it!) – to celebrate a year’s worth of active living.
WHO SAID SANDWICHES HAD TO BE BORING? CHECK THIS OUT FOR SOME LUNCHTIME INSPIRATION!
Lunchtime can be difficult for a lot when it comes to thinking what to eat or what to prepare. The temptation of going to McDonald’s or taking a quick trip over up your favourite fast food restaurant is too easy, but what’s even easier it’s creating an easy masterpiece on your own! I know there’s nothing worse then when you’re sitting in the office and a boring old piece of bread, stuck together with a piece of processed cheese is staring you in the face.
Taking the time to prep your meals and think ahead is important and it’s super easy! Putting together your own classic rustic sandwich with great fresh ingredients is not only fast and easy, but also a great meal and snack. Trust me you will feel way better when you eat one of these absolute delicious beauties instead of that greasy fast-food burger.
Here’s one of these beauties that I made last week! Be sure to check out the ingredients and give it a try yourself!
