April Mum of the Moment - Meet Genevieve

Without our wonderful mums and bubs Body Beyond Baby just would not be.  Each month we like to celebrate your achievements and recognise the hard work that you put into your training and life as a mum.  This month I would like you to meet our Mum of the Moment for April - Genevieve and her beautiful son Max - Genevieve was nominated by two BBB mums, Danette and Bek.  Genevieve recently moved to the Central Coast but still travels back to Sydney and attends Body Beyond Baby sessions as often as she can.  She was a late starter in our first Find Your Summer Body challenge but made some amazing progress, she joined us again for round two and is looking absolutely amazing!  Well done Genevieve.

As a thank you to our Mum of the Moment and a congratulations for all of her hard work Genevieve will receive a voucher for Plenty Kitchen and Tableware in Bondi Junction

Meet Genevieve

How long have you been training with BBB? 

I started at the beginning of November last year.. So it's been about 5 months.  I had just got back into walking after my 6 week checkup and I bumped into a friend from High School (Jade) when she was doing the Coogee Steps with BBB on a Sunday morning... Everyone looked like they were having a great time (hmmm ok... maybe not a great time! But at least with a fun bunch of people and were motivated to get fit!)
You have gained fantastic, consistent results with the 8 Week Challenge’s – what has been the main factor in this? tell us your secrets..  

Just doing as I've been told!!  I followed the eating and training plan very strictly and just stuck it out! I made sure I was organised with my food and scheduled in when I would do my training sessions each week. It has just become part of my routine now.

You recently moved out of Sydney and are still traveling back to BBB sessions as often as you can – how has the move affected your exercise?

It's definitely harder to guarantee that I can get my sessions done as I always have my little man with me - no Body Beyond Baby Nannies to be seen!  I've had to split sessions up if I can't get them done in one hit.. Like this morning I had a run planned, but Max was over it after about 10 minutes so we had to abort mission!!!  Nick was home early from work so I went out on my own then and did a 40 min track run.  I really miss the continuity of the BBB sessions and seeing all the lovely Mums (and of Course Jen, Amy and the nannies!).

What are your favorite bits about BBB? 

Hmm... what's not to like! I enjoy the variety within the sessions, they keep things interesting and give you something to focus on other than how hard you're working!  A massive plus for me is definitely the nannies - the fact I can take Max with me is just awesome.  If he's happy then I'm happy and that means I can focus solely on my work out. Meeting other like minded mums is also great.

What advice would you give to a new mum thinking about starting to exercise again? 

Be kind to yourself.  Your body has just been through something amazing but also very taxing.  Forget about how fit you used to be (or want to be!) and build up slowly and consistently.  Body Beyond Baby is the perfect way to get back into exercise and achieve amazing things!

Do you have anything else to add?  

I just want to say thank you to Jen for providing such an amazing program.  I am thrilled with my results and can finally fit in to my skinny jeans! Woohoo!
