Your diet is what you eat on a daily basis, that nourishes your mind, body and spirit. This is contrary to the marketing and mass media promotion of ‘diet’ being something you are ‘on’ that causes deprivation, restriction and is for a limited time for weight loss.
At Terrific Fitness we teach ‘diet’ in its original form for nourishment, fulfillment, health and longevity. We do not deprive, starve or restrict.
We offer Nutrition Coaching as an extra service for any member interested to help them learn what food is most beneficial for their health and which food is doing them harm and holding them back, even if that food is broccoli. Yes, broccoli. Even food that is promoted as healthy may not be right for everyone.
We teach people how to identify and eliminate reactive foods, so they can enjoy a vast variety of foods without being on a traditional restrictive diet. By removing reactive food and promoting food of abundance, this will nourish you inside and out. That includes having pizza as part of your life, if you so choose, without jeopardizing your fat loss goals.
You see fat loss is a by-product of health; but health is not a by-product of fat loss.
Let me share with you Christine’s story. Christine dropped 3.2kg in 5 weeks simply by completing a 14 day nutrition boot camp then identifying her reactive food. Congratulations Christine, friggen awesome work!
Here is Christine’s story, in her words:
“I came about Terrific Fitness when I used to do Clinical Pilates at the Physio which was around the corner. I kept saying that I would enquire however I kept putting it off as I was pregnant with my 2nd. 6 weeks after I gave birth, and was given my clearance, I called up and one of the trainers organised a free trial. I instantly loved it and signed up the next day and have been there ever since.
The reason I joined was to get fit. Clinical Pilates was great especially with helping me recover after my first child but I felt like I needed and was ready for more. I missed working out however I wanted to do guided classes as opposed to gym.
The main thing that keeps me here is the family vibe and also the knowledge the coaches all have. I was embarrassed to do my first class as I had just recovered from my second c-section and I found out that I had muscle and pelvic separation which caused a lot of pain in my lower back. Terri adjusted everything. I wasn’t fit like I used to be therefore I couldn’t do exercises like Burpee’s or Push-Ups but they showed me different variations which suited my injuries and fitness levels. A few months later I was doing them all on the floor.
Nutrition. I have learned so much over the past couple of years and I keep learning more.
The biggest challenges I’ve overcome was recovering and really trying to listen to my body. A few years back I was slim, and weight trained almost every day. After having children my hormones went crazy which caused me to put on a lot of weight and my body was in so much pain. The trainers always made sure to give me options that would benefit my body and help with my recovery. I wasn’t the only one though, so many of the men and women who trained beside me were / are also recovering from injuries.
I train twice a week with Terrific Fitness and walk every single day. I recently did a nutrition plan with Terri which was challenging but also exciting. I found out at the beginning of the year that I have a condition called Lipedema and one of the main issues that comes with the condition is that I get horrible inflammation. She wrote up a plan for me and the pain disappeared instantly. Areas which were inflamed had reduced immensely and I felt so much more energised. The weight started dropping too which was a bonus.
I do not stick to a “diet” as I know it’s not something I can do forever. I try and eat 3-4 healthy meals a day but also treat myself a few times a week. I am intolerant to a few foods so they’re something I avoid now and the nutrition bootcamp definitely helped change my mindset. The best thing I took out of it was understanding my body but also enjoying myself. I still eat pizza once a week but I know the next day that my knees will be sore. I make sure to eat well after the flare up and within a few of hours the pain is gone.” – Christine Schmidt
