I Am Not An Invalid

As a first time mum to be and a fitness addict too I have encountered many well meaning, caring individuals whom think it's necessary to tell me I should not be training, should not be lifting anything heavy and need to stop doing what I'm doing.

On our recent visit to Queenstown my partner and I decided to do the Queenstown Hill Walk. The 2-3 hour walk is famed for the view of Queenstown and its surrounding areas. Amazing views. Epic hills to climb.

Scaredy Cat in the Gym

As a personal trainer over the years I have become comfortable with spending my time in a gym, but this has not always been the case. In the interest of complete transparency (despite the included picture) I'll let you in on a little secret; To this day I still find some aspects of the gym intimidating. I can completely relate to those who are scared to go to a gym for a variety of reasons.
