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 boys, lover of the outdoors, sunrises and smoothies.
Being in my 40's allows me to bring my experiences of life into my role more than ever before. 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 maintaining good physical and mental health.
When I was 27, I trained as a Personal Trainer as I wanted a career that combined my love of exercise with helping others. Offering personal training from the home and outdoors in nature, I’ve enjoyed over 15 years of seeing others transform their fitness, confidence and wellbeing.
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 for the first time. After getting back on track, it inspired me to take a qualification in counselling where I learnt about how stress had played it's part and how I could take better care of my emotional wellbeing.
After going on to celebrate 10 years in business, I took time out to start a family and became a mum, a role which filled my heart. This phase also triggered weight gain, anxiety and once more a loss of fitness. I felt stuck... Exercise to me has always been about feeling healthy over being skinny, but I couldn't shift the excess weight and on top of that I felt stressed out with 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, minimal sugar, organic where possible, avoiding refined junk as much as I can.
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.
