Change happens outside your comfort zone

Are you in your comfort zone?

Everything in life is nice, its easy.

If it is, bet you are not that happy…

Your job is ok… It pays the bills, but when you wake up you would rather turn over than jump out of bed and rush in to the office.

Your body is ok (or not), you have jiggly bits, bit to get the body you want changes need to happen.

Changes happen outside your comfort zone.

Excitement and happiness is outside your comfort zone.

Recently I finished the last of my uni work. I had to force myself to sit down and do it. Mental, you would think i would be excited to get it finished. I wasn’t… Studying is my comfort zone. Now its done the boat needs to leave the harbor… It is scary. It is exciting. But lets face it, i am not going anywhere if I don’t get off the couch and stop writing essays to get more certificates.

Time to set sail in to the open water…#wisewords #Wilson14

How far will you go?

Every goal in life starts somewhere. From you not knowing what it is right through to achieving.

The idea needs a plan, steps, stages, processes to get you there. You might even need help.

Make the plan, work through the process, ask for help.

Sometimes it is easy, sometimes you wonder what the hell you were thinking.

Always remember WHY you are doing it and do it for you, NOT for anyone else.

Be amazing.

Achieve lots.

Love your life.

Don’t get stuck and if you do, work through it, round it, over it.

Don’t give up if you want it, but don’t be afraid to walk away or change route if its not what you thought it would be.#wisewords #Wilson14

What a beauty

What is beauty when we talk visual aesthetic is subjective. What one person sees another will disagree. To be beautiful from the inside is to be true to yourself, true to your values, true to everyone around you and respectful of others values. Do you know and understand what your values are? Once you know and live by your values not only will you have beauty you will have happiness from the inside. That kind of happiness is real. Life and decisions become easier, your world becomes more beautiful. If you don’t know or understand your values yet, take some time to work them out. Its worth it. You are worth it. #wisewords #Wilson14 #BitDeepThisMorning #Thinker

This is your moment

‘This moment contains all moments’ C.S. Lewis

I love this quote…

Every thought and decision YOU make has a domino effect on everything else…

So, if what is happening in your moment is not getting you where you want to be you need to make a shift in your usual action. Make a change in your attitude, how you react to a situation, how you think about something, look at it from a different perspective. Take the opportunity that will be fun, not safe.

Change the moment to CHANGE your path… You never know what the other path might lead you to…. #wisewords #Wilson14

Oops… restart

So many times we get to start again. If something isn’t working you don’t need to keep pushing to try and make it work. It shows more strength and character to stop, CHANGE direction, start again.

You have to fail at things to be able to succeed. LEARN your lessons so when you do start again you become better.

Remember its not what other people want its what YOU want and need for you to be HAPPY. #wisewords #Wilson14

No regrets and quit with the bull…

‘One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.’ Paulo Coelho

I think that I am lucky that i have managed to experience so much already in life. I have worked and lived overseas, travelled pretty extensively, experienced more than a lot of people do in an entire lifetime. As i turned 35 (yes really i am 35 lol) i started to think there wasn’t much else for me to do. My lifetime goals were almost all ticked off already.

This thinking is BULLSHIT!

There is so much more to achieve in life. Reach beyond the stars. Never give up on your dreams or think that what you have done so far is enough. That doubt or ‘contentment’ is fear. Fear you might fail, fear people might judge you, fear it might not be what you want…


You won’t know unless you try. Don’t leave it till it’s too late then have regrets. #NoRegrets#wisewords #Wilson14

Saturday Pilates is moving back west

Saturday Pilates is moving back west

So, 31st May 2014 is the last Forward Fitness class at That Place studio… end of an era. Chapter closed.

New chapter, 7th June 2014, Freedom In Training starts a new 10am Saturday Pilates class in a new location. SDTA, 101 Park Rd, Glasgow over in the Westend just next to Kelvinbridge underground, Sonny and Vito’s (that means tea and scones after class) and next to the park so on sunny days we might venture in to the part to do class outside.

Good news and bad news… the class is already nearly full. There are only 2 spaces left for the first block. After that it will be a one in one out only option.

Now this Pilates class is not for you if you want to lie on the floor and do some breathing, we work hard in the class, you want to see the benefit of the exercises and I want to see you get results – no matter what level you come in at. Every exercise we do has an adaptation for skill level or injury and a progression to challenge you as you  get stronger.

It is also not for you if you don’t want to join in some conversation and learn about things that are not just about Pilates, we have conversation about a wide range of things from what to eat, when to eat, why your body reacts in certain ways to different foods, why it hurts after exercise right through to how to tie a scarf to get the most heat benefit.

We are a community and friendships have been built and we love to see new faces join us (and old faces come back).

There are only 2 spaces left so if you want to snap one up you can book through the link. Because of the demand for the class we don’t do drop in sessions, you get to have your space for the whole month to avoid disappointment – no one wants to get up on a Saturday morning to find out they can’t get in to their class.  Book here >>> 

If you get redirected through to the website and don’t get a receipt then unfortunately you have missed out on the last spaces. BUT if you sign up for the newsletter you will be first to know when a space is available OR when I announce more new classes.
