Hi there fitness friend,
My name is Sam Hall. I'm a Personal Trainer, Brighton girl and founder of the Miss Fit Club. I'm a wife and mother, lover of the seaside, sunsets and smoothies.
Being in my 40's feels like an amazing time to be a personal trainer because of the experiences I've had. I understand the challenges of juggling family and work, trying to keep the wobbly bits at bay, fluctuating hormones and the link between exercise and mood.
When I was 27, I trained as a Personal Trainer as I wanted a career that combined my love of exercise with helping others. After building up a loyal client base, sunrise squats on the beach and chats along the promenade, it was amazing to be part of helping others transform their fitness and confidence. I truly felt this was my dream job (I still do!).
A few fun-filled years later, I was super busy and trying to do everything a million miles an hour and with little time to rest properly, I eventually experienced burn out for the first time. This inspired me to study counselling and I learnt all about how stress had played it's part, my anxiety triggers, how I could take better care of my physical and emotional wellbeing and how a bit of self love goes a long way.
After going on to celebrate 10 successful years in business, I took time out to start a family and became a mum, a role which filled my heart. This new phase also triggered weight gain and loss of fitness due to sleep deprivation and living on carbs, caffeine and biscuits!
Balance over perfection
I got the love back for fitness and wellbeing again in 2016 and after celebrating my 40th birthday, I got my butt into shape and reignited Miss Fit Club. With renewed motivation and energy I began coaching clients using my experiences of business, life and motherhood.
Do I still eat ice cream and drink prosecco? Of course I do! I think it's really important to have a bit of what you fancy from time to time instead of being super strict then having a blow out.
I also listen to my body and slow down when I need to, prioritising exercise, good nutrition and sleep. My lifestyle isn't perfect, but I feel the healthiest I've ever been and this is what I aspire to help my clients to achieve.
