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 of two energetic boys, smoothie lover and morning person.
Combining my love of exercise with helping others, I trained as a Personal Trainer when I was 27. Since then I have been offering personal training sessions from the home and outdoors and have over 15 years experience of helping my clients transform their fitness, confidence and wellbeing.
Being in my 40's allows me to bring my experiences of life into my role. I understand the challenges of juggling family and work, keeping the wobbly bits at bay, fluctuating hormones and the link between exercise and maintaining good physical and mental health.
I’ve learnt some valuable life lessons along the way too…
A few years ago, I found myself doing everything a million miles an hour and experienced burn out. After getting back on track, it inspired me to take a qualification in counselling where I learnt how I could take better care of my wellbeing.
I later went on to start a family and became a mum. This phase filled my heart but also triggered weight gain, anxiety and once more a loss of fitness. I felt very stuck. Exercise to me has always been about being healthy over skinny, but I couldn't shift the excess weight and had flagging energy. I longed to get back to my happy fitter self but I didn't know where to start.
Then something clicked…
I got a piece of paper and divided my life into three areas - exercise, nutrition and wellbeing - and jotted down all the ways I could nourish these more.
I lost weight, got my energy back, I slept deeper, felt calmer, my business even thrived...I was back!
Balance over perfection
Do I still eat cake and drink prosecco? Of course I do! I think it's really important to have a little of what you fancy from time to time instead of being super strict. But I do ensure what I eat is high quality.
I also listen to my body and prioritise proper rest as well as regular exercise. 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.
