"I hope that you aren't held back because of a number & that you don't just rush into things because it feels like time is slipping by. I hope that you do what's right for you 🖤 Hold on, slow down & breathe in. Your life is your life! Don't change your journey so that it matches someone else's. We all need to walk these different paths so that the whole world be explored. REVEL IN THE DIFFERENCES & enjoy where you are, in this moment"
One day at a time, one step at a time 💫
Me as a lifter: *quiet, calm, mellow, probably crying*
Me as a coach: *smacks client* “FUCKING SEND IT”
SHIT DON’T NEED TO BE PERFECT
My #10x10Challenge starts today but there’s still a wee bit of time to sign up!
I've kept it super simple based on all the feedback I've had from you guys.
All you need is 10 minutes per day and a set of dumbbells. That's it!
You don't need fancy workout gear.
You don't need to be super fit.
You don't need to have the know-how.
I will be giving you the EXACT workouts to do, with regressions, and demonstrating all the moves so you know what you're doing and don't have to think about whether this is the best way to exercise or not.
Side note: The workouts are super effective. Tried and tested. 💁🏽♀️😂
I want you to experience a win with something so you can build momentum to keep going.
I want exercise and movement to be a part of every woman's life because you deserve to feel your best.
Make it easy for yourself. Lower the barrier to entry.
Stop telling yourself that you have to be X, Y, Z in order to start. Or that the circumstances have to be as immaculate as Jesus' conception. 😂😂
Don't let fear, doubt or the lack of perfect circumstances get in the way of doing something for you.
Let’s do this together 💪🏼
Hit the link in my bio to sign up 😁
Thanks to recent team building activities in my workplace, I’ve been reflecting on elements of my past... and this video of my leg day finisher is a fitting metaphor 😬
I spent all my teens & most of my 20s not living a “normal” life. I had an illness called M.E/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome). 250,000 people in the UK have a diagnosis of M.E and a crude calculation estimates approx. 17million people in the world 🌍
Sadly the extent of disability that ME causes continues to be poorly acknowledged. For those not familiar with ME, a recent study by Kingson et al used anonymised clinical data collected from people with M.E. and MS (a similar but recognised illness) and assessed how their illnesses affect areas such as employment and income; finding that “people with M.E. were ‘measurably more disabled’ than those with MS, work fewer hours and have lower incomes.” This comparison actually makes me rather uncomfortable, to the point I debated mentioning it at all in this post, as I feel it can (albeit unintentionally) come across as diminishing the absolutely terrible impact of MS. So let me clarify, my only reason for referencing the study is to give some context that despite the wealth of evidence about how debilitating M.E is, it’s not recognised to the same extent that other similar conditions are 🤔
Back to the metaphor. I’ve spent the past decade not talking about those dark years; wanting to almost forget them. But I’ve been reminded that often what you feel you are shamefully dragging behind you like a heavy weight, is what has made you strong. Maybe it’s time to put that strength to good use. My experience certainly defined a large part of my character today, and it sickens me that after a decade we’re still debating the credibility of the condition. I don’t know where I’d even start to make a difference... but sharing this seems like as good a place as any 🤷🏻♀️
Well Sunday evenings I train triceps, biceps and some shoulders and yes, I did do those things as usual. Sometimes I will do some flat bench if I am prepared for it. I wasn't prepared for it today but I gave in to it when I saw the benches were empty. This was after I already finished going ham with triceps so this wasn't a very good decision😑. Did some warm up sets, they went well. But the last 2 sets were not as good as they could have been. Triceps felt a bit toasted & my hip wanted to be weird on me while setting up. Thank goodness I stopped myself from going any higher up in weight this evening. Disaster avoided, another lesson learned. 👉Always do any compound exercises first. Warm up properly for them. I need to listen to my own advice 🤣😖
But oh how tempting that empty bench press can be!😍😬
I did my work out this morning, absolutely smashed it. I’m glad I did it this morning and not last night as it was so much more productive this morning. I actually did 4 sets of hanging crunch, 8, 8, 8 and 6. We then went to perrywoods, just to get me a scone 😂. Bill needed to know if he can drive our car for work tomorrow, and I wanted a scone 🤷. He can drive, and I have a scone for lunch tomorrow 😎. We then walked into town to get a carvery, I was looking forward to this all week. We rock up, no more carverys available 😭. By this point I was so hangry I didn’t know what to do, and I was almost in tears... so we ended up in prezzo. Not what I had planned but it was still a really nice lunch.
640c, 17p. Breakfast today was cookie dough pop tarts and a bottle of chocolate caramel yazoo. There wasn’t much flavour to this, just tasted like chocolate milk with a slight caramel aftertaste.
I guessed around 900 calories and 37g of protein for lunch. I had the spicy sausage ravioli, and because I was so hungry I finished off Macies pasta Bolognese, which isn’t pictured.
626c, 9p. Another guess for this Apple cake we got from perrywoods, and some custard. Bill was very upset with me, we were supposed to share this cake but I ate it all 😬.
361c, 46p. This evening I had half a pot of fage 0% Greek yoghurt, some cherries and a fulfil chocolate caramel protein bar.
There’s a reason why the pros say “simple routines get you better results.” Classic bodybuilders like Arnold didn’t do all these fancy workouts, they stuck to the basic lifts with a few different variations (not wild ones) and repeated them over and over.... And look where that got them. They knew what was effective, and that was alllll the boring stuff.

There’s a reason why strength coaches don’t have their athletes do brand new workouts every day of the month - it’s not effective.
I wish it were true, as going to the gym and choosing a few random exercises on the fly is fun. It’s also not mentally taxing since you don’t have to psyche yourself up for personal records or engage in progressive overload.
Unfortunately, it’s not optimal as doing random workouts doesn’t put increasing amounts of tension on the muscles, which is the key driver of hypertrophy.
This is why your coach likely has you buckling down and performing the same workouts for 3-6 weeks at a time. It’s also why he or she probably doesn’t switch things up drastically every month.
Although it’s not sexy, variations of squats, split squats, deadlifts, hip thrusts, push ups, pull ups, bench press, overhead press, rows, and dips pack the biggest punch and grow your muscles best.
What if your goal is fat loss? Eat at a caloric deficit, consume ample protein, walk a lot, and train the exact same way in the gym so you keep your muscles and lose mostly fat for weight loss. It doesn’t have to be complicated.
Don't understand the language but definitely hot 🌹🌹
When you look at yourself in the mirror, do you tell yourself that you need to make a change?
You won't always want to exercise, you won't always want to eat healthy. I am here to teach you how to be consistent while still living your life. Flexibility is important. Perfection is not realistic!!
Transformation Story: When they say that Working out not only improves the Physical health but also the Mental health, there is a reason why they say so!
Jayanti Agarwal suffered from not one but from many ailments. Here is her heartwarming story that is bound to touch and inspire many.
Before and After weight: 70 kgs to 53 kgs
Before and After dress size: XL to XS
Time taken: 1 year
"As far as I remember, I was suffering for most part of my life:-Hypothyroidism from the age of 3, PCOD, gall bladder removal, kidney stone, fatty liver, uterus cysts, hyper tension and the worse of all, I had plunged into depression after a very difficult pregnancy and the stillbirth of my first child, my daughter.
I used to be on heavy medications to combat the above mentioned issues including sleeping aids. But now thanks to SQUATS and the patience and motivation of my Fittr coach.
I am off sleeping aids, my fatty liver is getting back to normal, no anti depressants and now the other medicines have been slowly weaned off.
It took me a year to come out of that comfort zone but now there is no looking back. I never felt so energetic and healthy in all my 34 years of life. It feels like a new me. SQUATS not only gives you a better and healthier life but some awesome friends too.
A big thank you to Jitendra Chouksey sir who created this wonderful platform where lives change, my buddies who are always ready to motivate if I am not motivated enough, and also my sister who added me to this wonderful group."
Jayanti decided to step outside of her comfort zone and give a second shot at life when nothing seemed easy. When will you?
