After the birth of her baby Mia, Teriann wanted to get back into training. This is always a challenge post baby, especially the childcare side of things. Since starting with Terrific Fitness Teriann has made some awesome progress in just three months. Her fitness and strength post baby have come leaps and bounds! Teriann trains like an absolute machine, always watching her technique and challenging herself without putting herself or her post-natal body at risk. Congratulation Teriann, sensational work!

“Teriann from the moment you walked into Terrific Fitness you brought such a presence into class! Between juggling the fact that you were a new mum and that you wanted to get back into the gym, your determination and humungous smile could be seen a mile away. Teriann you have adapted to a new lifestyle and have been kicking huge goals each and every session. In each and every class you participate in you give it your absolute all regardless of what weights I challenge you with! You and your gorgeous daughter Mia are an absolute standout regardless of if we are working in the studio or even through lockdown, training via Zoom. Keep up the brilliant work and I cannot wait to see you and your little one’s journey grow!!”

Here is Teriann’s story in her words.
“I joined TF when my daughter was 4 months old. I felt heavy, unfit, tired, wondering if I could even get to a gym with a baby and my eating was all over the place. My biggest challenge was to understand and accept that my body has changed, and it would take time to get back to my pre baby fitness. Putting clothes on felt uncomfortable as I didn’t like that they didn’t fit me anymore. Trying to find a gym that would allow me to bring Mia in with me and understand its clients was hard to find until I came across TF on the internet. I was nervous stepping into the gym based on how I would feel returning to a gym after not training for 12 months and recovering from a caesarean. This all changed on my 1st consultation where I walked out feeling pumped to start my 1st class.
Since joining TF, I am slowly overcoming my challenges through training with the amazing team at TF. I currently do Emilia’s 9.30am classes. I feel really comfortable stepping into the studio and always know I will walk out feeling better after class. I have improved with my fitness through training and lots of walking. I still have my challenges ahead of me with my weight, eating and wanting to do more classes but I feel they have improved over this short time.
Since joining TF I have felt my energy level lift, I am leaving class with happy hormones running through my body ready to conquer the day. Achieving the things that may be little but were big for me, like, now been able to do a star jump, high knees was a great accomplishment showing myself I am heading in the right direction . I feel like I have been able to increase my fitness in class; this is driven from the atmosphere and guidance of Emilia and the team at TF have given me.
The thing I love most about me today versus me before going TF is, I AM DOING IT, I am making it happen even with a 6 month old baby (which can be hard at times and very easy to give in. This is all because the TF team making me and Mia feel welcome at the gym, always giving options to ensure that safety and recovery is No1 and always making sure we walk out of class feeling like we have achieved something.” – Terriann Atkinson
