The key word & biggest goal Ingrid cited when starting her journey with TEAM was 'balance' – physically, mentally, emotionally & in her lifestyle.
Ingrid has beautifully achieved balance (in a ludicrously unbalanced and unpredictable time!) by:
Consistently exercising in a healthy & appropriate way (with a history of overtraining and subsequent injury / fatigue – Ingrid was determined this time to build strength and fitness in a deeply healthy and balanced way rather than giving in to the temptation to over do it, and has also incorporated a rest day in her schedule & a mix of low-mod-high intensity work rather than all high intensity or endurance).
In addition to coming to every single PT session, she also rides her bike regularly (now in a 5k circuit), goes for walks & has added yin yoga for mobility & chill time.
Consistently eating healthily & well while giving herself permission to give her body enough nutrition to fuel her training and activity levels, and without becoming too restrictive
Consistently awesome attitude, super positive, rolling with the COVID punches & always making the most of it
Using some of the think habits in the 28 day challenge to create balance, down time & nervous system regulation in an overstimulating time:
Getting to bed by 10pm consistently
Using Headspace app to meditate first thing in the morning for 10 minutes
Ingrid celebrated her 46th birthday last week and when she was asked by her trainer Jannah if she felt 46 she said: "Not since I started training with you. I feel great!"
