⛷ Ski holiday photo dump ⛷ + an opportunity to chat about what it feels like when you lose your fitness levels & skiing feels really really hard and then you beat yourself up about it!! ⁣
⁣
So the last time I went skiing was the week before lockdown in March 2020. ⁣
At the time my job meant I was very active and so I took it for granted that my fitness levels were pretty high (and had been on all my previous ski trips through my 20s). ⁣
⁣
2 years and a pandemic later, my whole lifestyle has changed. Now I work at home, I’ve been moving less and overall I’m much more sedentary. My fitness levels have therefore gone down. I don’t have the strength & stamina I once did. ⁣
⁣
So I suppose I never realised quite how physical skiing actually is. It’s hard 🥵⁣
⁣
After just a short time on the snow my legs felt like jelly, which then impacted my technique, which then meant I had to work much harder to get down the mountain (it’s a vicious cycle). ⁣
⁣
I felt gutted that I was the slowest in the group, that what used to feel pretty straightforward now felt SO tough. And I started feeling super frustrated & disappointed in myself. ⁣
⁣
When I expressed this to Jack and our friends @teffyperk & Matt they reminded me of what I always try to remind you - ‘Listen to your body Tally!’ And ‘Bodies change, fitness levels change its ok’ - whew I needed to hear that 🥺❤️. ⁣
⁣
I had a word with myself and remembered that I shouldn’t be holding myself to a past version of me, instead I hold compassion and kindness for me in the present and will slowly work on building up that ski fitness for next year in the future. ⁣
⁣
And I hope you can do this for yourself too! ⁣
Remember the big picture, this is just a season of life, nothing is permanent and you are allowed to grow, change & evolve. ⁣
⁣
P.S I actually had an AMAZING holiday despite the struggle skiing thanks to wonderful company, the discovery of good Rosé, lots of long lunches playing cards and some stunning mountain views! ⁣

After I shared a DM yesterday from someone who’d had a really negative experience going to a workout class, I asked you all to share what instructors could do better so that you felt comfortable going to classes. ⁣
You all had some brilliant ideas and so I’ve put together the most common responses- but I would love to know if you have anything else to this list?⁣
⁣
I do want to acknowledge that I don’t think these negative fitness experiences are purely an individual instructors fault, but rather there are several things at play:⁣
⁣
• Courses and fitness education reinforces the assumption and narrative that people are only there to lose weight and so that’s how we should be training them. This means we’re doing our clients a disservice right off the bat. ⁣
⁣
• Because of the emphasis on weight & aesthetics in the fitness industry (thanks diet culture) Instructors feel pressure to look and behave a certain way so that people think we are ‘good’ at our job. Hence the ego & go hard or go home vibes. ⁣
⁣
• The ego we have also gives us the false notion that we know better than our clients and therefore we act as authority figures rather than facilitators who are working *with* their clients. ⁣
⁣
I could go on, but these are some of the key aspects which I would love to change in fitness. ⁣
And hopefully all of us, are starting to slowly influence the long overdue change that is needed. ⁣

After I shared a DM yesterday from someone who’d had a really negative experience going to a workout class, I asked you all to share what instructors could do better so that you felt comfortable going to classes. ⁣
You all had some brilliant ideas and so I’ve put together the most common responses- but I would love to know if you have anything else to this list?⁣
⁣
I do want to acknowledge that I don’t think these negative fitness experiences are purely an individual instructors fault, but rather there are several things at play:⁣
⁣
• Courses and fitness education reinforces the assumption and narrative that people are only there to lose weight and so that’s how we should be training them. This means we’re doing our clients a disservice right off the bat. ⁣
⁣
• Because of the emphasis on weight & aesthetics in the fitness industry (thanks diet culture) Instructors feel pressure to look and behave a certain way so that people think we are ‘good’ at our job. Hence the ego & go hard or go home vibes. ⁣
⁣
• The ego we have also gives us the false notion that we know better than our clients and therefore we act as authority figures rather than facilitators who are working *with* their clients. ⁣

Ad What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
⁣
For me, it’s about connecting with women. Listening to different stories and perspectives. ⁣
Learning how we can work together to create real change.⁣
Encouraging and supporting each other to take up space and use our voice to fight for what we believe in. ⁣
Whilst also celebrating who we are as people and what we have achieved so far on a personal level and as a collective. ⁣
⁣
If you’re looking for a way to connect with other women and be inspired this IWD then check out @amazonuk series of events put together by Women At Amazon UK. ⁣
