Have you ever sat down and really thought about your values? As in, literally listed down the things that are important to you, the people that are important to you and who you want to be in this life. It’s interesting when we do that task, how often the way we are living our lives is completely out of sync with what our values actually are.

Coming Back

Ok, so this type of training is somewhat intense. It requires you to train like an athlete. We aren’t in the business of just getting women ‘to work out”. The type of training we do is tough. Lifting weights, conditioning and learning new skills. All the time. Every day there is something new. If there isn’t something new there’s someone new! New faces and friends to meet constantly!

Yep. It takes effort. Eating real, wholesome food requires going to the shops and buying fresh food each week, every few days even! Then you have to prepare it and cook it. Whether you like to prepare food at the beginning of each week or not is totally up to you, either way, it takes time and effort to make sure that you always have food, ready to go and grab at any time.

Choosing To Get Strong

So, every girl’s first few weeks/months at Lissome generally goes the same way… 

You turn up. You have no idea what’s happening. What the blip does AMRAP mean? What’s a Toe To Bar? How on earth do I hold this heavy barbell thingy?!

Motivation; who + what gets you!

It's really important that you are somewhat intrinsically motivated to come along, even on your own. If you’ve ever experienced that day when “so and so” wasn’t at the gym when you expected her to be, and you just felt flat, lonely and “not into it”...
