I’m the Fit Girl in Fit Girl Factory, Faye Robertson, let me tell you about myself. In 2010, after finding myself unfit, unhealthy and 2 stone overweight – basically miserable – I joined a gym but found classes didn’t change the way I looked, the gym equipment was confusing and scary, the trainers were all male and I couldn’t identify with them.
I needed something that was different, something that was fresh, original and designed for me.
In 2012 I started combining cardio and strength training. I started to see and feel a difference straight away. For the first time I engaged with my exercise, I felt strong, powerful and I was having fun. This new way of training made sense to me and my body loved it,
I was developing muscle tone and lost 23lbs in weight. I found the energy to do the things that I enjoyed. I started walking and cycling everywhere. I learnt to skip and swim. I started to eat healthy, nutritious foods. I finally felt like me, only stronger! I turned this way of working out into my own method and decided all women should know about it.
Fit Girl Factory was born!
