Happy New Me 2018

Badger has his 10 recruits to get Fit and Feel fab with Active Swansea Leisure Centres.

'You can't out work a bad diet'. 

This week I met up with Sue Reed. Sue has a role at the City and County of Swansea of bringing the community together and getting families in particular to spend time talking communicating and ensuring the mind body and soul all work together to a positive life experience. She has a passion for healthy eating and regularly hosts family healthy cooking experiences. Sue has some great tips on how to get the kids to try new food and be part of the food prep and knowing what they pop in their bodies.

It's Week 6 and Badger joined Gemma and Patrick at Bishopston Leisure Centre for a Group Cycling class with Helen. They are both working to get fit for their own individual challenges. Have a listen to the Podcast to find out more and how Group Cycling can be so good for you to get fit.  

Badger with Victoria and Angharad at Penlan Leisure Centre

This week I caught up with Victoria and Angharad. Every year when we do this one of our recruits gets struck with a cold or worse Flu. Angharad has battled all week but thankfully is feeling much better so she got into the gym at Penlan while the rest of us made our way to take part in the circuit training at the centre. I see the teams taking part each week and it looks really tough. Myself and Victoria were joined by Mark and Chris to take one our of fat burning exercise with 40 others. Great fun and lots of calories burned. Definitely worth a try. 

This week Badger gets back on the Bike. Indoor Group cycling or Spin as it's sometimes known is a fantastic way to get fit, lose weight and there's no need to get all the lycra, just turn up and peddle. Badger met up with Amy who is one of our recruits and they both had a go at taking part in the class at Cefn Hengoed with Mike and the team. Have a listen to what happened below 

It's week 3 already !

This week Badger caught up with recruits Chris and Mark at their local Active centre Penyrheol. Under the expert guidance of Emma who is one of the centre assistant managers the three of them were assigned the task of taking on Functional PR. Raising the pulse rate is an essential part of building stamina and losing weight. Checkout this weeks podcast and play catch up with the last couple of weeks.


So I met with 2 of our new recruits Carly and Tarron who have some pretty amazing stories on why they want to lose weight and get fit. We have their story in the Podcast (above). There's lots of info on why you need to choose the right food and the right exercise for you. Instructor Steve Thomas gave us a thorough measurement and induction into the gym plus we got to grips with what we want to achieve and some realistic goals for us all.
