Fitness Packages at Fairy Bod Mother

It’s pretty easy to see that Disaster, Diet and Detox all begin with the same letter but that’s the only thing that is easy to see about it.

Local book stores and ‘weight loss gurus’ really are a treat at this time of year (sarcasm intended). Your wee head will be full of questions. Is the 5:2 diet better? Is the juicing worth it? Atkins and limited carbs? AHHHHHH! It’s a nightmare! I can’t even start to think about how you are processing this bombardment of money making.

With 6 years of experience in weight management and health improvement, why not think about us to guide you along your journey?!

At Fairy, our superb training team are all about YOU. We never ask you to quit major food groups. We never ask you to change who you are or your lifestyles. But we DO help you become a better version of yourself that you can hold on to long term.

We launched these programmes back in January of this year and they have revealed some amazing mind and body transformations! These programmes are aimed at you and will help you reach your potential. With weekly weigh-ins with access to information on body fat, muscle and water %, exercise and a social media support group/forum, we know that we will look after you.

How do I know what programme is best for me?

Both programmes run along the same format but have very different training plans.

Little’r’ Black Dress is aimed at those of you that wish to tighten up and sculpt your wee bodies. This programme is a for ALL levels of fitness, abilities and shape, and will take a low impact/high fat burn approach.

Bootycamp is aimed at men and women who have a medium/high level of fitness, fancy a physical and mental challenge and are brave, as this is not for the faint hearted!

Both programmes are designed to help achieve YOUR ideal body: a healthy and strong shape, with an emphasis on keeping you who you are using signature Fairy moves.

How does it work?

Everyone is more than welcome to join us on either programme all we need for you to do is register.
The programme runs for 8 Weeks and you can do as many sessions per week as you like.

For an 8-week programme (8Hours) the price is a stunning £50 (£6.25 per session) for non-members and £16 (£2 per session) for members and if you wish to attend more than one session per week, you just multiply the price by the number of sessions.

As this is a full programme, you are signed up to the 8 weeks so there is no need to worry about getting a space, phoning every morning for a space and most importantly, the rest of the class needs you and will miss you if you don’t attend! We are very excited to offer this at such a low price!! And guess what?! If you fancy some classes that complement the package, we have a timetable that offers 40 classes per week with our Master Trainers!

How do I book?

There are only 25 spaces on each programme so we’d recommend booking quickly!

Morning Bootycamps

06.08.2017

Miss Fairy Bod is dedicating herself to getting up and out of her bed to be at work for 5:45am for 10 whole days! The reason = you!

Around this time of year, people feel that they need a wee extra kick up the b*m and who better to do that for you than Fairy Bod Mother herself. With years in the industry and a background in fitness for more years than you can count on your fingers, she knows that her sleep-mark-tiger face can get you into gear for the early starts and health and fitness reward you’ll feel and see!

Wither you are after weight loss, motivation or a feeling of achievement, people of all fitness levels are welcome at Fairy’s Summer Camp. Small enrolment groups mean you get a lot of individual attention and its NON-military style gets you moving at your own pace, but watch out, Fairy can see everything and she will motivate you to your max!

Weigh ins and bio-impedance (fat, muscle and water) can be taken (request for these must be made before Day One) and nutrition plans are NOT included but I’m sure Miss Fairy will expose you to some example meals.

So! That being short and sweet (just like me….) Who’s in?! Classes will run from 6am-7am each day! Your booking links are below!

Medical Form

Hit The Ground Running

21.06.2017

Running is simple… Right? Although running is a fuss free form of exercise, its crucial you take it seriously.

Technique. Although bracing your own fab running quirks, it’s so very important that you look after yourself, especially in the beginning stages so it can be carried out throughout your training programme.

Run tall, strike the ground lightly and quietly, hold your gaze 10-20ft in front of you, use your arms, keep the knees low and relax!

Here’s a few training plans, courtesy of Bupa, that may help you along your way!

Beginners 10Km Training Plan

Intermediate 10Km Trainign Plan

Now, here’s the most important part… who would like a Running On Fairy Dust T-Shirt?! Email us on management@fairybodmother.com to let us know you are interested!

Baby Bod Mother

Baby Bod Mother

Meet Lyndsey Millar, one of the founders of Baby Bod Mother. She holds prestigious certifications within the fitness industry but takes great pride in being part of a qualified minority, a trainer for Level 3 Pre and Post Natal Fitness. This is Lyndsey’s Story…

As a mum of three, I found there was a real lack of ante-natal exercise classes with knowledgeable, confident trained professionals. Throughout my pregnancy, I suffered from pelvic pain but had no point of contact or advice on how to reduce pain or ultimately prevent it from happening, if I was lucky enough to have further pregnancies. Labour and recovery, on the back of my pain, was slow and frustrating and like every new mum, I wanted to try and get back to being me. Juggling my new role as a mum, a partner and a person was tough, just like it can be for everyone(!) but I craved getting fitness and group exercise back into my life!

Years went by and it quickly became apparent (after a career pre-kids in the police force!) that physical activity, exercise and supporting people through their fitness journeys was where I wanted to take my life. So there I had it! Brave pills swallowed, I put my head down and I got myself some qualifications! After I received my Level 3 Gym and Exercise To Music Certifications, it occurred to me, I could fill a gap I wish had been filled 10 years ago. I swallowed yet more brave pills and with the encouragement and support from co-founder of Baby Bod Mother, Kim Harkness (of Fairy Bod Mother Fame!) I became a Level 3 Trainer for Pre and Post Natal Fitness.

Lyndsey Millar, the Maternity Specialist
As a fitness/group exercise instructor, I have taught, coached and nourished thousands of clients with different fitness levels, abilities and attitudes but one group stands out.
As the maternity specialist at Fairy Bod Mother, I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of women, all at different points in their maternity journey. I absolutely love women having the confidence to contact me pretty much as soon as they know they are pregnant and 10 months later, I can welcome them and their bundle to come exercise with me!
There is nothing more rewarding for me seeing a happy healthy pregnant mum coming to Fairy Bod Mother classes, knowing I’ll get a cuddle at months down the line at Baby Bod Mother

Why Baby Bod Mother is for you
Both founders have made sure anyone can complete both Fairy Bod Mother and Baby Bod Mother classes safely and effectively through-out your pregnancy. By choosing to come to our sessions, you’re not only gaining access to our classes but you are gaining ad-hoc advice from a qualified trainer and mums (pregnant or post natal) surrounding you!
We believe we have created something that has lowered all the usual barriers to busy mums and mums-to-be with exercise and health

Health is for all ages

23.05.2017

As the years have went on, I’ve noticed a stark difference in the age that people settle back. Once upon a time, if someone were to say that a 50 year old was starting a new relationship, or running a marathon you may have been surprised, this is no longer the case. At this time in your life, you are more than likely to have grown up kids and have had the peak in your career so it’s time to think about yourself and have fun.

Each and every day I get calls and have consultations from those looking to further improve their health and keep their weight in check and they are becoming a prominent part in the work I do. Hormonal fluctuations, weight management and worries about heart disease, osteoporosis and cancer are at the forefront of wishing to select the right foods. Alongside these, keeping illness at bay, reducing wrinkles, maintaining hair thickness, boosting memory and having a good nights’ sleep are also on the wish list, so it really does pay to select the right foods and keep you looking and feeling young and healthy.

Making a shopping list (alongside not shopping when you are hungry) is always helpful whilst looking at weight fluctuations by why does it have to stop at weight management, can we not write list for staying young? Here is a starter example, for your ‘Stay Young Shopping List’

Healthy Heart
A diet high in fibre is important when controlling and lowering blood pressure, reducing the chance of heart disease. Foods such as fruit, vegetables, beans, pulses, wholegrain and brown rice all help take away LDL cholesterol to keep your arteries elastic and clean.

Osteoporosis
Eating more calcium rich foods such as yogurt, fig, tofu, cottage cheese, spinach, broccoli or all dark green vegetables can prevent bones becoming porous resulting in ease of fracture and breakage of bones.

Feeling poorly
The immune system helps the body defend itself against viruses, bacteria and the ever happening cold so were really need to help it out! Eating foods such as cranberries and strawberries, which are rich in vitamin C, riboflavin help the body produce more antibodies and keep illness at bay.

Smoothing fine lines
Cold water fish such as salmon and sardines are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and speed up the formation of new skin cells and elastin, keeping your skin nice and taught! Additionally, fish’s omega -3 has been known to help prevent and heal blemishes faster so it’ll be youthful skin all round!

Maintaining hair thickness
While genetics play a role in hair thickness, the foods you eat can also impact. Legumes such as lentils and chickpeas contain biotin, a B-complex vitamin needed for hair growth and nuts contain high levels of protein, along with selenium and omega-3 fatty acids that improve scalp health.

Boosting Memory
Blueberries contain anthocyanin, a known memory boosting phytochemical which gives protection against disease and can help stop the onset of degenerative diseases

Having a Good Few Zzzzz’s
Having a sleepless night can be one of the most frustrating things and is one of the most common complaints aired in the GP surgery, with 20 million UK adults suffering from sleep problems at some point in their lives. Getting into a routine and having 7/8 hours of good quality sleep a night can help the connections in our brain and help memory and functioning, it also helps regulate metabolism. Having hot milky drinks in the evening instead of alcohol or tea or coffee can work alongside a strict routine and which in turn helps skin to look younger and fresher. The myth ‘beauty sleep’ may actually be true….

When January didn't cut it, February is still as good! Starting your fitness journey...

21.04.2017

The bright lights, wall-to-wall mirrors and lycra regulars might leave you too intimidated to even step foot inside a boutique fitness studio. But Fairy Bod Mother couldn’t be far enough away from this stereotype. (We dont have mirrors, we have darkend studios AND we love a boyfriend tee!)

It’s totally understandable and natural to feel like an outsider looking in. There are so many unspoken rules, but don’t let your anxiety stop you from checking out that new Fairy Fiit class or stepping on our Reebok Steps. Here are a few things to put you at ease before you attend Fairy Bod Mother plus tips from our very own Fairy Bod Mother !

1.It’s OK to ask for help or modifications

“When you first walk into Fairy Bod Mother, find a member of the Bod Instructing Team or Reception staff and have them get you medical form to fill out” says Fairy. She recommends arriving at least 10 minutes early — we’d even say 15 if you want to get comfortably situated before the sweat session begins.

Your instructor will be there to help you if you there is anything of concern on your medical form that may cause further injury or pain, especially in terms of your positioning. “Proper form is everything, when it comes to avoiding injury,” says Fairy. “It is the instructor’s job to set you up for an amazing class, how to modify it for any injuries or sensitive spots and point out where you are working” she adds. Bottom line? If you need something, speak up!

2. Comparing yourself to others won’t make you feel better or worse about yourself.

While you may feel insecure, keep in mind that everyone is there for his or her own good, not to judge you. “No one cares how you look or what you’re wearing, everyone is too busy focusing on themselves” says Fairy. So chill out and don’t worry if you can’t get into high knee runs, take it into low runs, we’re all at different levels, and the BodLing next to you isn’t bothered by your newbie status. If you’re still feeling unsure of yourself, bring a workout pal along or try a class at non-peak hours (weekdays 9.30am)

3. Getting frustrated is part of the process.

Remember, workouts are designed to be tough! Attending a new class is supposed to be challenging!! Be patient, keep trying and know it will get less frustrating the better your fitness gets. Whatever you do though, “don’t quit,” says Fairy.

Frustration can sometimes be the ignition of true passion, even if you don’t recognize that at first. The key is to look for signs of change, soreness, fitness gain and adrenaline rush!

4. You’ll want to eat something before. Seriously.

You can’t move nonstop for an hour without fuelling your body properly. Fairy’s favourite pre and post workout snack is a medium size banana. “They are pretty much nature’s Energy Bar,” she says, “and are packed with digestible carbohydrates and loaded with potassium, which helps maintain muscle function.” Don’t like bananas? Try a slice of whole-wheat toast with peanut butter.

5. Dehydration can happen to anyone and it’s real yucky.

Drinking water is critical to a great workout: after all, it does make up about two-thirds of your body. (Ignore the fancy flavours, plain H20 is always best, not to mention calorie-free.) Bring your own bottle and stop to have a sip whenever you like or need!

6. There are good days, and then there are bad days.

It’s important to remind yourself that progress isn’t necessarily (and in fact, often not) always the same. There will be classes when you can nail a weight you hadn’t hit before or take a higher impact option, and likewise, there will be classes that follow where you can’t get those same power numbers or move your limbs the same way. That’s totally fine. Remember, there will be peaks and troughs. Just enjoy it! Both the mental and physical rewards you’ll reap.

With lots of love, Your Fairy x
