New Challenge - Looking Fit and Sculpted, Just By Being Functionally Fit!

Of late i've decided "I've had enough " of not being into hard training, last few times I've tried to go to the gym i've driven there and then at the last second I just yank the wheel and drive in the opposite direction! (Once it was to go to the Plaza and get a mexicana spud ! yummo! ) he he

But it is also hard not training,- my muscles ache and feel flabby !*(yes it is possible to be both at the same time even if you're an athlete like me ! ) it’s quite hard to get that work/life balance back again, but I am really determined that I don’t want to be an on season/off season figure competitior. Figure competing is a funny demon, it's a challenge for me , not really a passion, it's more of a means to an end, I don’t really feel like you should live your life always feeling like you are depriving yourself ( for some people it isn’t depriving yourself so its cool for them but hey , you know how I like those krispy kremes !

So my mission between now and next June is to get fit/sculpted for a comp overseas but by doing training for beach and indoor volleyball, kickboxing, cycling, pilates, and only 1 or 2 weights sessions a week and looking after my own nutrition *( I pretty much know what I can and can’t get away with by now ! ) I am going to get a bit of training off a few different pt’s to get some ideas on how to do it and see how they do it and then see which gym I feel like joining up at, goodlife is a little out of the way for me at the moment. I want to do amazing feats of strength, and then better it, I want to get pushed past that point where you want to give up, but you don't, then experience the elation after when you complete the task. I wanna be fighting, pulling, stretching, reaching, sprinting, jumping, pressing .... everything. I want that elite feeling of fitness all over again !

And of course there is my amazing mentor Di Shipway - Miss Nabba World Figure, she is awesome, I see myself coming back to see her every 2 – 3 months to see what she thinks has happened to my body and what I should change. She had heaps of really interesting insights on a whole range of topics personal/fitness/ business. It’s like she’s already one or two steps ahead of me bc she’s experienced so much she already has a view on whatever issue I bring to her !

So yeah , Taking this approach to being an allround fitness ROLE model is way more inspiring to me than trying to be “the most beautiful woman in the world” which is such a ridiculous contest but it’s almost what figure competing is … I had way more fun in the Oxygen shoot , it was more about working together as a team to play up my good points, not differentiate me from others by my weak points ! does that make sense ?

I still want experiences, I just don’t’ want to be chained down by them .

I'm looking forward to this next challenge of being fit and sculpted - just by doing the things that make you that way . I can't really stomach another 3 sets of this for 20 then 3 sets of that for 30... Next year will be a different story because I will be motivated to step up on stage at a completely new and different level for my own sense of personal acheivement. Oh yeah and for the photos !

Hopefully we will sell and only move 2 houses down so here’s hoping, ( then I’l already have a studio and an attached office ! ) oh by t he way, I’ve got 6 dogs now we rescued one from the pound !

Okay anyway , I will catch up with Peita she’s been working at the Wesley Weight Management clinic and I just need an official stamp of approval that what I’m doing is heading people in the right direction but anytime you need advice or wanna

Personal Trainer Helps Locals Trim Both Waistlines And Shopping Bills

In harsh economic times like these it is often the so called luxuries that are first to
fall by the way side, including gym memberships and personal trainers with potentially disastrous results on Australia’s already generous waistlines. Bianca Aiono from Exclusive Personal Training has made it her mission to show Sunshine Coast residents how they can save money on their food bills, get fit and lose weight in a low cost, money back guaranteed 12 week program. The program provides a support network to corporate workers and families that not only helps reduce medical costs in the long term but also shows participants how they can still get fit and have fun on a shoe string budget.

Bianca says “ Cardiovascular disease is Australia’s biggest killer costing our country
over 7 billion dollars each year, so it just makes me so angry when times get tough people are forced to cut back on their health and fitness programs. What is that going to cost our country in the long term?” Bianca says her own weight loss struggle from overweight teen to champion Body Sculptor has lasted over ten years and is the foundation of her training and nutritional system which she says works for everybody, every time. Bianca has so much faith in the accountability and fun atmosphere her group training sessions provide she offers a 100% money back guarantee that her participants will get the results they want. To prove it to local residents Bianca is offering one free week of Small Group Personal Training and a free fitness consultation to our readers when they contact her on 0433 147 833 or by visiting .

Karli Styles, a self employed graphic designer from Landsborough lost 5 kilos with Bianca’s
program. “ At first I was worried about meeting the costs of both a fitness program and the food for a healthy eating plan but the kids can eat the same food I’m eating. Also, now that I don’t buy so much extra processed junk I’m actually saving money on my grocery bills.” Bronwyn Reifit a single mum of 3 from Caloundra West was also concerned with her childrens eating habits before joining the program. Bronwyn says “ I’ve lost over 12 kilos and have heaps more energy with the eating plan and the kids are really happy. The lifestyle changes we’ve made together have helped us all as a family. I didn’t realise I was actually wasting $50 a week or more by eating convenience foods”

29 year old Brooke Sugars from Currimundi says “Before joining Exclusive Personal Training group sessions I used to spend $100 a week on smokes, so now that I’ve quit it’s like Bianca’s actually paying me $40 just to exercise ! I love training outside I just couldn’t go back to a gym now. “

Bianca explains because her programs are held in parks and at people’s homes they don’t
have the same overheads as most studios and gyms. The beautiful Sunshine Coast outdoors, away from normal every day pressures and exercising with likeminded and motivated people Bianca claims is a healing atmosphere in itself. “The government should be putting more funding into preventative measures for our health system, instead of footing the bill on the other end after it’s almost too late. I want to turn my own struggle with weight loss into something positive, and if I can reach out and change as many people’s lives as possible, well I’ll feel like I’ve made a difference.”
