RBT : A New Me!

I have always been relatively fit:

My Dad had us in the local swimming club every sunday as a wee little tacker.

I was a ballet and tap dancer – 15 years of experience and training, and a few scholarships and performance solo’s to boot.

I rode BMX for 5 years at state, national and world level, and could have gone professional, if I had been more dedicated. We can credit my teenage boyfriend as he distraction here.

I was in the local Volley Ball team that won the highest local grade, three years running. Our motto was ‘Let’s get it back’ and most of the time, we did.

I played local and state level touch football. Shin splints!

I played with a team of indoor and outdoor soccer for a few seasons, and scored a few goals. Striker was moi.

I run, I cycle and I work out.

I am one of the lucky ones. My body reacts quickly to exercise, has a great metabolism and generally does well at picking up sports. I like being out doors, I like being competitive and I like being the best I can be.

What I do not like, is putting on weight.

You see, it is kind of essential to be somewhat slim, as a model. My problem is, doing what I have already done, is now not enough. I used to be able to eat all the foods and drink all the wine I wanted, but my body is changing, and I am not enjoying it. I am putting on weight. Instead of cutting out a bit of chocolate and some sweets out of the diet, still the weight doesn’t shift. It might only be a slight bit bigger on this or that body part, but measurements are fact, and without the same measurements, I am simply out of a job.

So a few weeks ago, I took matters in my own hands. I am quite self motivated and somewhat honest with myself to know what I needed to do and what needs changing. I put out some feelers on Facebook to see what people were loving, and why. A few people offered personal trainers as a one-on-one, but I can’t afford to spend a great deal in a huge hit, but did require someone to manage and encourage me in my work outs. So a cheap gym membership wasn’t the answer, nor spending my life savings on a trainer two days a week. I was after a holistic training facility that was motivating and enjoyable, that delivered what it promised. Whilst remembering the old saying of ‘you get what you pay for’ I signed up to Result Based Training.

I had seen the website and a few reviews, and figured the two week free trial wouldn’t be too bad. I didn’t have anything to lose (except a dress size) and signed up.

The first week was absolute hell – in the best way possible. The first session was legs and glutes, and I actually couldn’t walk for properly four days. The next three days were abs, cardio and upper body strength – the idea is to train the whole body for the week and not leave any out. It worked, and after every session I was in a new world of pain. The kind of pain that spoke to you in volumes, and would reiterate how lazy and unfit you are, and now you are being punished for all the times you hadn’t been to the gym.

The biggest difference I noticed was myself mentally – not just physically. I was happy and excited to go to the gym. Maybe not so much at 6am, but still, I was always happy when I walked out, feeling like I had done a great job. I had signed up for the 6 on 1 semi-private personal training, with you and five others at a maximum in the group. This is definitely ideal for me, as I am time poor and need to be in, train hard, and out as fast as possible. The trainers push and encourage too, and considering my last trainer was more of a negatively geared kind of guy, this was a big plus. High fives, ‘you’re doing well,’ ‘only a few minutes left’ and ‘keep pushing,’ are all high on my list of trainer must-do’s. Don’t tell me how poor my squat / lunge / push-up performance is, just tell me how great I have already done and to keep going! 

Here is a general overview of a 30 minute class. Sorry about the low quality image, I was still shaking after class when I took it.  10300010_10152481444099414_2802924242381905786_n

 

I continued my commitment to on average four sessions a week, and I can honestly say I feel amazing! My body has changed, my metabolism is faster and my energy is high. What I have lost in body fat, I have gained in muscle. I still have a long way to go, and I am proud of what I have already achieved, but I just have to try harder and I will have my results. 

The plan is to have some before and after shots in the next month or two. I shall keep you posted with my embarrassing before images… 

RBT have gyms located in North Melbourne, South Melbourne, Hawthorne East in Victoria, and in the Gold Coast – Varsity Lakes in Queensland. In the next few months, Perth and Sydney will also be lucky enough to have an RBT Gym close by.

AND all my MAX MODELS get a 15% discount on memberships. Score!

  • Spring has sprung at Brickworks Centre, so let's take a look at some this seasons hottest trends from Freedom and Dwell. If you haven’t been down to The Standard Market Company, you would have missed their outstanding range to please every tastebud around, and while you are there, pop on over to Retreat Wellness and take some time out for yourself. Take a look at my stories for some more behind the scenes action. We had so much fun on this campaign!

  • Why do @Dyson products make me this happy? Once you know.. you know! Just like a good coffee- it looks so good, peps me up and works every time! Stylish yet functional, lightweight and powerful. My V11 is the ultimate. Take a look at my stories for how great she really is! So easy to use, light in the hand, battery management and simple to empty. It doesn’t get any better. Also conveniently timed for Mackenzie to run from watering the garden, through the dirt and grass for a wet cuddle with Mummy.. zoom in on those feet..! 🤦🏼‍♀️ #WorkingWithDyson #V11Aus

  • If you haven’t been watching my YouTube channel, you might know what’s been happening in my life (I’ll forgive you, you’re a busy bee too!), but we have endured many highs and lows these last few months and it has been challenging to say the least. #LinkInBio
Usually, Monday’s and Thursday’s are my work days. Where I just get it all DONE. Since we haven’t had kindy, it’s been busy busy busy here, juggling time together and time for the kids, health appointments, hospital stays and work to get done. 
I have to say thank you to you though, for your patience and kindness through everything in front of and behind the scenes. It’s been crazy but we truly have appreciated your patience through this. 
Our minds are open to what ever is coming and our hearts are full. And it’s all thanks to you. 🙏🏼 #CoulthardAndCo
  • To everyone that says: ‘I can’t curl with heat tongs’ ‘My hair doesn’t hold a curl’ ‘Blow dries don’t work for me’ Say hello to your new best friend. The @Dyson Airwrap is here to answer your hair prayers! Coming from a girl who CAN curl with heat tongs, who’s hair doesn’t hold a curl and blow dries never looked any good a few hours later.. this genuinely works and I am in love! Three days, a few hot showers, some exercise, two pony tails and a messy bun later, this hair still has curls. Ladies, you’re welcome. #WorkingWithDyson #DysonAirwrap
  • Hello, friend. How are you? Is it obvious I have a camera that I take photos on that isn’t my phone? It’s to save you from seeing four thousand selfies from me and enables me to take a photo without actually pressing the button on the camera.. if you ever see me holding my phone in a shot, that’s probably what I’m up to 😜 scroll down my feed and you’ll probably see a few..! Insta-husbands are great, but this is how I manage when I’m solo!
  • My @Dyson V11 does many things.. although I am yet to see her make my bed (give it time..!). Forgiving her all for all her sins, she makes up for them in so many other ways. Have you seen this girl run? She is almighty! She helps me function with a clean house AND makes me look stylish. The new torque cleaner head intelligently adapts to deep clean carpets and extends run time on hard floors. AND I get a real time countdown of the remaining battery time so I can ensure I have all my job's done. Just in time for spring cleaning. I am so in love with her! #WorkingwithDyson #DysonauV11
