Honouring the Strength of Women Worldwide: International Women's Day 2024 - Bec's journey

Q: Tell us about when & how your fitness journey began.

A: I've always been into fitness but it really became a lifeline for me when I got sober in December 2020. I made a promise to myself that I would exchange the life I was leaving behind for a new life of being healthy both on the inside and out. 

Q: What is your favourite physical activity and why?

A: As I hit my 50s, my body was asking me to slow down and so I am enjoying lifting weights and balancing that with yoga. I've loved seeing the transformation of my body from lifting weights and the stillness on my mind from practicing yoga. I endeavour to work out early in the day, which lifts my mood and sets my mindset for the entire day. 

Q: Where are you at today in your health & fitness journey and how has this impacted your life?

A: Health and fitness is a daily thing for me. Whether it's going to the gym, practicing yoga or walking my dog. I keep my body moving and am much more mindful about what goes into my body. It's changed my life dramatically and the way it makes me feel during and after exercise is what keeps me consistent. 

Q: What are your tips for busy women who are the beginning of their health & fitness journey?

A: You have to start somewhere and slow and steady wins the battle. No quick fixes or crash diets will help you in the long-run. Find out what works for you and stick with it until it becomes as much a part of your routine as is brushing your teeth.
