Movers & Shapers : Session 8

Being my first session in a week and a half I was wondering how I’d fare today.  The session was with Idi, and I still had memories of my exhaustion after the 1 to 1 so upon seeing her I felt a little nervous! She commented that she hadn’t seen me for a long time so I told her I’d had a week and a …

Movers & Shapers : Session 7

Another great session with Maddy. I knew this one was going to be my last one for a while due to softball commitments and work commitments. So I threw myself in to the session and left happy that I’d given it my all. This coming weekend I am going away to a two-day softball tournament and my body felt ready for it. My muscles were …

Movers & Shapers : Session 6

After the last session I could tell how much my body had strengthened up, my muscles didn’t feel dull, tired or achy the next day.  I’ve also noticed that my common back complaints (I tend to get aches in my left shoulder and back) had completely gone away, I believe because of the improved strength in muscles not targeted through my other activities. Today’s session …

Movers & Shapers : Session 5

Determined not to let the last bad session perturb me I booked in to my regular 9am slot for today, only two days since the aforementioned evening slot.  I was with Maddy again this time, whose previous session was really enjoyable, this time I had a really great all round workout! By now my body is getting used to the sessions and I can complete …

Movers & Shapers : Session 4

Due to an unexpected bit of work coming up, I had to move this session from the planned morning slot to the evening. Wow this was a mistake for me. I was tired before I arrived, having run a couple of sewing workshops in a school.  My mental tiredness meant I could not put my all in to the session as I had been doing …

Movers & Shapers : Session 3

To say my legs were fatigued the day after my last session would be a massive understatement. I was walking like John Wayne for the next couple of days and every little step was accompanied by that “ooh, ow, I worked hard yesterday” satisfying pain. Yes, I openly admit I am a bit of a sadist. Feeling the benefits of these sessions already – I’m …

Movers & Shapers : Session 2

So, despite not feeling the first session at the time, the next day my body felt as though I had worked out hard, excellent, and all in half an hour. As M&S say in their advertising, “who has time to go to the gym any more?” I certainly don’t at the moment and I really miss the exertion! When I arrived for my second session, …

Movers & Shapers : Session 1

I’m always up for trying new things, and so whilst researching cellulite combat I discovered that the power plate chain Movers & Shapers claimed to “combat cellulite” whilst also improving muscle tone, strength, accelerating weight loss and improving overall health and well being. And all in two thirty minute sessions a week. It’s a no-brainer really isn’t it? So I called them up and booked …
