I started my fitness journey in 2015. I had ZERO exercise for the past 5 years (other than the desperate bursts of workouts to shed the baby weight) I never actually embraced fitness as a lifestyle.
I saw her posts on the Dubai Marina Mum Group wall and loved how she got the ladies together for a run around the expanse of the Marina followed by a boot camp!
I was intrigued and interested to give it a try!
The Fit Woman group meets thrice a week by the Marina Mall – a quick warm-up run towards the Yacht Club and beyond, after which the real workout starts!
The whole atmosphere was encouraging and motivating. Starting the routine around the fall of 2014, just when the weather began cooling down, working out outdoors, away from the four walls of a gym, with amazing views of the Marina…made it all worthwhile .
Word spread and the cafes we would run past week after week, would invite us for a post run juice or coffee – an invitation we lapped up whenever we could!
We enjoyed the weekly sessions so much that I signed up with Olivia for PT. We started out with a BMI and a chat about what my targets were, we had weekly measures and weigh ins, along with me keeping a food diary! Our sessions were super, one on one, intense and, most of all, outdoors – with the beautiful background of the Marina.
My kids loved joining in whenever they could and would watch Olivia and myself sweat it out! Olivia used this as a motivating tool “Show your girls what hard work looks like, Dee!” encouraging me to complete a rep or two!
