What Nadia has to say about her Urban Women Fitness outdoor training sessions
Nadia’s first session was in November 2014 in pouring rain.
Nadia has her own business, she is in her mid thirties, with two children and a family of three sisters that “come with emotional baggage!!” She finds it tough getting the best out of her days, being effective and organised, juggling work-life balance, and it takes its toll on her as a person and without realizing she is “sinking”.
Her first session
Taking her workouts outdoors was a different approach Nadia had not tried before. And she was the lucky one as the day of her first session was in November, so cold and very wet! That did not stop the session from going ahead….and that certainly did not stop her from showing up.
It was raining and before we even started our trainers were completely drenched with mud so they felt very heavy! Nadia’s mind at that point was busy thinking ‘what am I doing ‘ but she says that within minutes she stopped thinking and just followed my instructions.
“It was everything I wouldn’t and haven’t done before
…it was LIBERATING”
Jogging in the middle of the open field submerged with nature she absolutely loved it and more so because it was raining and cold, it made it more challenging.
“The ONE WORD I could use to express how I felt is ‘FREE’!”
How she transformed in just a few days
In her everyday life Nadia is always on the go, however during our sessions she can’t help it but relaxing her mind. It’s automatic.
After leaving on that first session and going home, she found herself with a new mindset:
– more aware of her surroundings
– thinking with clarity
– not allowing situations to take over
– be more in control of her emotions
“I definitely felt lighter on my feet and my mind. What I gained from Alexandra through my sessions is priceless.”
And here’s a picture from our first session we took really quick after our session.
