Six months with Joe Wicks

When everything locked down again here, in November 2020, under Tier 3 Restrictions, I was gutted because I’d just got my Pound classes up and running again and I’d really enjoyed being back in the gym. With yet another ban on live classes, I reverted my Pound classes back to Zoom twice a week. I […]

A big decision, a difficult choice

This week, Jo, my daughter and I chose to withdraw our entries from this year’s Total Warrior extreme obstacle race. It is due to take place on 10th July in Leeds, and in fairness, all the information coming out via email is worded to assure participants that it will conducted in a COVID safe manner. […]

Intensity

2020 The ability to throw myself into things until I reach breaking point in order to escape situations I am struggling with, has stayed with me. It is my stress buster. Unfortunately, more recently, it has also become a bit of a body buster. When I turned 60, my daughter suggested I rejoin the local […]

We are back!

I’ve now completed three live, face to face POUND classes. It has been amazing to have a group of people in front of me, all following my instruction as they have beat those sticks and rocked out together. The sound has been incredible. The increase in calories burned has been noticeable. For months I’ve given […]

Back to POUND!

I have to say that as I am writing this, I am beyond excited about the prospect of tomorrow: the 17th May and the day I get to lead my first live, face to face POUND class in almost seven months! I had only really just got my classes up and running before the first […]

Sprained Ankle, determination and perseverance

Last weekend I twisted my ankle causing a sprain. It was the last thing I needed, especially as I was doing so well with my daily exercise and workout plan using the Joe Wicks Body Coach App. I was so frustrated! However, I was also sensible  I rested it for the first few days to […]

💚 Back with POUND 💚

I took a bit of a break over Holy Week and Easter. It is a busy time for a Vicar! But now we are out the other side and so I’m more than ready to get back with it. I’m looking forward to getting back into the groove, literally of beating those sticks whilst squatting […]

A bit of a rubbish month?

It’s not been the best month. Not that I’ve missed out on workouts, not at all, but my goodness, have I eaten a lot of excess food! This has been for a variety of reasons: Mothering Sunday, my Birthday, Easter… basically it feels like the past four weeks have provided far too many occasions and […]

Challenges and hitches can be overcome

This week I met in person with a friend for the first time since before Christmas. We went for a walk and a good catch up. Over the intervening months we have shared the odd text, but nothing to alert me to the fact that she was lower than low. I must admit that I […]

These workouts are not for the faint hearted…but they are for the over sixties!

“These workouts are not for the faint hearted…” says Joe Wicks as I’m putting myself through the first workout of Cycle 4 Advanced, on his App this week. As I tackle press-up after press-up (with variations on the theme and interspersed with the odd Burpee or two) I totally agree with him! Forty minutes later […]
