Three friends and personal trainers from Burnley are hoping to spread the message about the importance of a healthy diet and exercise.
Jenny McCarthy-Jenkins (32), Janine Philp (36) and Alice Fulforth (29), who were the lead walkers on Pendleside Hospice’s Girls’ Night Out, will start their B-Fit Premier Lifestyle classes at St Joseph’s Park Hill on August 13th.
The trio will offer exercise classes, nutrition and weight loss advice as well as presentations on subjects such as stress, blood sugar and staying healthy while eating out.
Alice said: “It’s not a fad diet it’s about changing your way of life so that you can sustain it.”
But instead of focussing on slimming and weight loss, those attending the classes will not have to be weighed and the trio will run B-Fit aerobics-style exercise classes as part of the programme.
“It’s about diet, exercise and lifestyle,” said Jenny.
“It’s about lowering blood pressure, lowering the risk of diabetes, heart problems and improving general wellbeing.”
The classes will also look at reasons why people overeat and aim to tackle the trigger.
“A lot of people think it’s just about weight loss and getting into your size 10 jeans but it’s about much more than that,” said Alice.
“Whereas other slimming clubs focus on weight loss and eating less we look at the whole picture.”
Janine said: “The programme is aimed at not only those who want to lose 7lb or 7st but those who just want to feel better and improve their wellbeing.”
Although classes start on August 13th, the girls will be at the school between 6 and 7pm every Wednesday until then to give information about the course.
