Welcome to my Blog

Hey Everyone,

My name is Gisela and I am in my very late 20s :).
Originally I am from Austria, near Vienna. I moved to London in September 2005 together with my then boyfriend.
After we ended our relationship, I wasn't ready to go back, so I decided to stay and it was really the best decision. I got to meet great people and experience a lot of new things.

I was never really that much into sport as I am now, I was a gymnast when I was about 6 years old. I could do splits and all, but growing older this was not that "cool" anymore and school also got more demanding, so I stopped.

When I moved to London, I started to go to the gym to keep fit. I visited aerobics classes and went on the cross trainer, but I would never go on the treadmill as I hated running. 
In 2009 I started running because my company organised a run which you could take part in. I am still so very proud that I managed to finish those 8 miles.;) After that I went running crazy and this is how I started to get into my fitness.

I joined Weight Watchers and lost more then 1 stone. I started running regularly and in 2010 I even finished the London Marathon. In the same year I ran another Marathon in Austria and was hooked then. Training for a competition like this is tiring and takes up a lot of your time. Running very early on a Sunday morning and almost every day after work. I bought a lot of books on how to improve my speed with nutrition and also about how to cure injuries or prevent them. I did have a fair share of injuries during that time but never gave up.
I realised I loved my sports and everything to do with it. Many people came to me for advice.

In October 2011 I qualified as a Level 2 Gym and Exercise to Music Instructor and since then I am teaching my own "Legs Bums Tums" classes and since April 2013 even "Zumba®" fitness classes. I now know my stuff and am so happy to see people improve their fitness by visiting my classes.

I have so much to talk about when it comes to fitness but as everyone else I still have a lot of questions and do struggle with my weight as well.

With this Blog I want to share my knowledge and experience about losing weight, keeping fit and being healthy.

What do you do to stay in shape?
