California Dreaming!

Hi everyone, we hope you are fit and well and enjoying the beginning of autumn. Ryan and I have just returned from a week in sunny California where we spent several days (indoors) learning everything there is to learn about the business of fitness. Some of you may already be familiar with Alwyn and Rachel Cosgrove. They own Results Fitness in Santa Clarita, California, and are two of the leading fitness experts in the USA. They write for various popular fitness magazines , have published "The Female Body Breakthrough" and "The New Rules of Lifting" and have many years of experience in the field of Sport and fitness. Their success has come about through their hard work and determination and a deep understanding of what the fitness industry is all about.

For three whole days we sat in a conference room with 20 other top level Personal Trainers from all over the world and absorbed priceless amounts of information from our Mentors. I don't think my brain has been so active since I left school!

Investing time and money in our education is something that Ryan and I take very seriously. We know that the world of fitness and nutrition is forever changing and we have to be at the forefront of all this change. We need to know that we can give our clients the best of everything and this means that we spend hours of our day learning and fueling our mental energy. Our knowledge allows us to help our clients reach their health and fitness goals regardless of their age or situation in life. We believe that it is not just our duty to write a programme of exercises. We also believe that it is our mission to supply them with nutritional support and sound advice and to offer emotional back up when the stresses of life get in the way of their goals.

Our time in California was certainly well spent and fruitful. After the learning part was over, we took off down to the coast and cruised around Santa Barbara, Ventura and Santa Monica. Watching dolphins and seals swim on the beach was one of the highlights for me and just being next to the Ocean filled my mind and spirit with positive and nourishing thoughts. One of our future goals now is to own a home down by the Pacific where we can wake up each morning to the sound of the waves and watch the sun go down over the horizon! Yes, I will allow myself that dream and hope that it will come true sooner than later.

So now we are back home in Geneve and battling through the jetlag. We are putting a lot of what we learned in California into practice already and our clients will be benefitting hugely from our new found knowledge! Thanks to all of you who allowed us to take time out, we greatly appreciate your support!

Our 21 day Rapid Fat Loss programme will be starting again on October 5th so hurry and sign up before places run out!

Well, that's all from me for now. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or leave a comment on the blog. We always love to hear from you!

In health and happiness,
