Ocean Fit’s Client of the Month February 2021 – GEMMA!
One of our favourite times of month at ocean Fit is presenting Whitley Bay with a new Client of the Month. This month it’s Gemma from out Indoor Fit Camp and group online live Zoom sessions.
Gemma has been with us for a good few years now and has made a positive impression on many people, including myself.
Although not everything is to her liking Gemma will always give it a good shot and over the years, the past one especially, Gemma has made some incredible changes both physically and mentally. She has challenged herself in every way to lead a strong, fitter and more positive life style. Where others would make excuses, Gemma is out there pounding the pavement in all weathers and getting on all of our LIVE sessions and into Fit Camps.
When we get back in to the gym after this lockdown she will be patting herself on the pack.
What I did nit mention is that Gemma, has won this in 2018 but her hard work in 2020 has blown me away and she really does deserve the limelight to show off her achievements.
NAME: Gemma H
PROGRAMME: Indoor Fit Camp and Online Zoom Sessions
1.How do you feel to be crowned Ocean Fit’s Client of the Month…again!?
I’m completely blown away! There are so many other Ocean Fit members who work really hard and inspire me to do better. To receive the accolade twice is such an honour.
2.What has been your biggest achievement in 2021.
So far…breaking my 10K and 5K run PB’s. And getting in to the North Sea on the coldest day of the year, encouraged by another Ocean Fit member, Natalie! I’m a regular sea swimmer now and I love it.
3.Why did you choose Ocean Fit?
I wanted to make some major lifestyle changes but I didn’t have time to go to a traditional gym and stand around waiting to use equipment. The idea of just doing 30 mins a day somewhere local seemed ideal and more sustainable. And once I met with Aaron to discuss my goals I felt positive that I could achieve them with Ocean.
4.What do you enjoy most about being part of Ocean Fit?
Being part of such an amazing community of people. Everyone is so supportive and encouraging and we always have a laugh in the sessions! And Jasmine of course. She’s the best.
5.What’s your favourite post-workout snack or meal ?
I love a chocolate protein smoothie with banana, peanut butter and a handful of oats. Quick, tasty and nutritious. With a massive cup of proper coffee to wash it down!
6.If you could banish one exercise from sessions, what would it be, and WHY?
I don’t hate burpees so much these days. I would banish breakdancers as I end up falling on my butt at least once every time! I need to work on my balance and mobility.
7.Apart from being crowned Client of the Month (of course), what is your biggest achievement at Ocean Fit?
I loved doing the skip challenge last October! 304 skips in 2 minutes on my third attempt. I had to get the ladies up on that board! I never give up if there’s something I really want to achieve, even if it takes me a long time. I have lost 3 stone really gradually since I joined Ocean in April 2018 through making some relatively small changes. I’m all about the long game these days!
8.What is your next big fitness goal?
I would love to run a marathon! I’ve ran a half-marathon so I know I could do it if I put in the training. I don’t know if there will be any marathon events this year but I’m keeping my eye on the Amsterdam marathon in October and hoping it goes ahead/ I can get a place. Sub 25:00 5K run is also a goal for this year for me. I’ve joined a local running club so I hope when we can start meeting again that will bring me on.
9.What is your funniest memory from Ocean Fit?
Probably when Jasmine joins me for a plank (although she cheats and sticks her bum up in the air!).
10.Would you recommend Ocean Fit to a friend
100%! A few friends have actually joined on my recommendation. Aaron, Kay & Bex all bring different elements to the sessions and they are all amazing at what they do. I can’t wait to come back properly.
I am so pleased for Gemma and especially proud of what she has achieved.
If you would like to know more about how Gemma achieved these results and improved her lifestyle here in Whitley Bay, please do not hesitate to contact me and and I would LOVE to get you on the road to success.
