I joined with Maeve back in February 2021 while we were in the middle of a lockdown in Ireland. I was in a difficult place in my life in general and was going through the motions. I was unhappy with how I looked, my diet consisted of over eating and ordering too many takeaways and obsessing about the number on the scales. I signed up with BBS as a complete beginner to training with the goal of losing weight and heavy emphasis on form and technique.  We started off with home workouts (2 upper and 2 lower) and Maeve encouraged me to record my sessions for her to review and give me feedback to implement for my next training day. She was so responsive and patient. This helped me realise that we all do really start off somewhere and the more I improved week-to-week; the more confident I grew to start training in a gym. I learned so much about nutrition. I came from a SW background and I was obsessed with the number on the scales. Maeve spent time educating me about flexible dieting, the importance of getting enough protein and not to fear carbs and encouraged me to not fixate on the number on the scales and to take pictures to track progress. I have been eating batch bread, chocolate oats, smoothies, and granola. It's all about balance and applying the 80/20 approach and not to punish yourself when you are eating. You don't have to be constantly on a diet and learning that food is fueling my body and not storing fat.  My life has changed so much over the past year and it's really all thanks to BBS and the girls in the community. Training has become one of my daily habits now and it's something that I genuinely enjoy. I can't recommend Maeve enough.
