Our Success Stories – 60 Second Interview With Kristina Warwick Smith

Hi Kristina

Firstly well done on your achievements so far at Fitterbody Bootcamp:

Tell us something about yourself that our Ladies won’t know:

I’m one of those people who will just give anything a go, and over the past 10 years I’ve had a number of random hobbies – all with varying degrees of success: Rock climbing; Bollywood dancing, Classical singing lessons; Artistic roller dancer; and Tennis lessons – to name a few.

 

 

You look fantastic and we have enjoyed watching you change body shape week on week. Tell us about your goals and achievements so far:

I started at Fitter Body Bootcamp at the end of May this year as I just wanted to change my unhealthy lifestyle. I have lost over a stone so far and dropped a dress size which feels amazing but my ultimate goal is to be able to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle. Before that, I still have a way to go but my biggest achievement is that I’m still working at it! I know I’m not perfect, and I’ve had a few weeks that have been a real struggle, especially with my diet but I’m still heading in the right direction.
It would be silly not to also mention that I recently completed my first 5 hour Bootcamp (thanks to Lavinia in my 6am sessions for the encouragement). I would never have had the motivation or energy to do anything like this before joining Bootcamp. I even managed a two and a half hour Yoga session the next day!

What is it that you enjoy most about Bootcamp?

For me, it’s the fantastic support network available for help with both fitness and diet. Whether it be in person, by email or Facebook, there really is no excuse to sit and suffer in silence, confusion or feel overwhelmed in any way. It’s the personal approach that makes the difference for me.
The other thing I most enjoy about Bootcamp is not only are sessions completely different from each other, but how many times we say on the way out “that was a great session”. I’m pretty sure I’ve said that after each of the 3 sessions I have done so far this week, even this morning when Julie had Anne and I doing chest presses with two 10kg dumbbells!!!

How much better do you feel about yourself?

I have so much more energy than I ever did before and overall I think I enjoy life more. It’s great to know that as well as being able to see the visible results of weight loss I know that the inside is getting a whole lot healthier too! I’m also pretty sure if I look closely enough (maybe squinting) I can see the start of some pretty epic guns in progress thanks to regular Friday arms sessions – did I mention the two 10kg dumbbells from this morning?

What’s next for you?

I’ve signed up till May next year so you’ve got to put up with me for a while yet.
I’m starting a new job in a months’ time, and usually changes to my normal routine would put me back into unhealthy lifestyle habits, however I know I have the confidence and ability to keep on track.
I’m going to continue to build on my success so far both with my diet and my early Bootcamp sessions (yay for the 6am ladies).
I’m hoping there will be another 5 hour Bootcamp soon as I’ll be all over that and maybe I’ll give running a go too. Who knows, either way I’m sure it will be a blast!
