This year I got to work with five of the most incredible ladies on the #BeautifulFBB Campaign 2020 which featured a group of Body Builders, Power Lifters and Strong Women.
I decided to reach out to the lovely Lucy Scroggs, director of Because I Can Fitness , to gain an insight into the world of fitness through weight training. Having completed such an inspirational campaign where I learned so much about these amazing athletes, I wanted to experience a small sample of exactly what it takes to create such a beautiful physique.
Upon arrival at Lucy’s gym space I was greeted with her usual warm and infectious smile and taken through all of the safety information required for the session.
Having never trained with weights before I had no idea what to expect but I was put at ease straight away and guided through each exercise. I gained an understanding of both how to lift weights safely and also how to focus on training specific muscle groups.
I could tell you how it went but instead, I’ll show you…
Having been put through my paces I left feeling pumped and completely energised. I learned so much and my body had worked hard, which became apparent when trying to do a Facebook live video at the end of the session with my arms shaking!
Lucy is simply the best, pairing encouragement with inspiration and expertise is her super power and I am so grateful to have learned from her. If you are based in Aylesbury, Bucks then please head over to the Because I Can Fitness website and get yourself booked in. If you are based elsewhere and aren’t sure whether weight training is for you, give it a go, you might just love it as much as I did.
Thank you so much for this experience Lucy, I will definitely be returning to learn from you again and I can’t wait!
