Today we hear from Laura, Club Captain 2015/16, and a fifth year medic.
‘I got involved in UOLRAC in my second year after struggling to motivate myself to exercise during freshers.
When you start something new, especially such an individual sport as running, it can be easy to compare yourself to everyone else and feel like you're not good enough and can't do it. But if you just put on those trainers and get out there, you are doing it!
With such a supportive and friendly team cheering me round every muddy cross country race and every lap of the track, starting running was the best decision I've made at university!’ Don’t forget our #thisgirlcan run at 3pm today! #thisbucsgirlcan
What a great week working with women this week at our #thisgirlcan clinics @_kingssport. Squats on Monday, Upper Body on Tuesday and Core today. Those girls definitely can and definitely did!
Don't miss our neon run tonight and clinics at our London Bridge gym the rest of this week 💪🏃♀️ Understanding what you are doing and why is such and important part of fitness and progression so come and train and learn with us!
Jumping over hump day with a bit of BUCS hockey in preparation for our first club day! Come and support our girls today at 5:00pm on the water base. #bucsgirlcan#thisgirlcan#CLUBDAY @lboroau @lborosport 💜💜💜💜
And that's exactly what my finishing challenges and current challenge group are all saying about the healthy lifestyle changes they are making. Being motivated daily to crush their workouts, eating balanced meals with a healthy dose of daily nutrition🌱and having the support and accountability has helped them to achieve some pretty big goals and it's just the beginning! So proud of their mindset and achievements so far, I'm excited to share on this journey with them☺️
If your struggling with you fitness and nutrition or just want to avoid the dreaded #festive5 🤣 Remember you can make anything happen and I'd love to help support you. Drop a 👍🏽below or DM me your email.

Want to change ANYTHING in your life? Stop scrolling and get STILL! The stillness holds the truth! The truth we need to hear in order to change! As human beings it’s normal to resist change and that’s why we fear the stillness! Want to change? Break the pattern! Stop. Drop. Get Still! #lifeclinic#life#lifehacks

Sometimes getting up, going out for a run and starting work before there’s even a hint of light in the sky feels like hard work. •
The thing is, no matter how I feel getting myself out of bed, how hard the run feels (and I’m battling a very critical mind that constantly refers back to previous run times!) I always feel good afterwards.
Yes, I seriously miss my morning coffee, big slices of crusty bread and a wedge of cheese but my skin has improved massively (touch large piece of wood!) which bodes well for my next hospital appointment 😊
So, all things considered, I’m just working hard at making myself better and feeling well and if that’s not worth some effort then I’m not sure what is!! P.S. Yes, I still exercise in years old T-shirts - if it isn’t broken why spend a load of money on new kit?
// Workout Wednesday // The Basic Bounce is the core move from which all rebounding workouts stem. Unlike trampolining when we Rebound we push down into the mat's surface as opposed to 'jumping' up with straight legs.
IT'S ALL IN THE PUSH!
Working against gravity to accelerate and drive out of the mat's surface makes Rebounding an incredibly effective calorie burn guaranteed to make you sweat!
