[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][us_image image=”10454″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Once upon a time there was a warrior woman who sailed across the skies, all the way from the magical land of Swansea, Whales. This warrior woman could throw around weights with her bare hands, she could speak the magical language of the Welshmen and most of all she supported her warrior sisters to become stronger, fiercer and all around legends of BBB.
Our warrior woman is none other than Siân Peters and she is our May Member of the Month. Travelling far and deep to get the answers to the burning questions our readers desire. Siân allowed but a moment of her time to tell her story, so it is with pleasure I bring you the story of why Siân, Warrior of the early mornings, is our chosen one.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Naturally competitive Siân chose strength & conditioning; because quite simply it kept her motivated to perform better. However she faced her fair share of challenges before joining the elusive community of BBB. “I was stuck in a rut and had no clue what I was doing, my nutrition sucked and I was paying a PT; who gave me no direction. Plus I was literally training for aesthetic reasons which is hardly fun.”
Choosing to surround herself with like-minded people, who all share the same mindset and goals was another part of why Siân choose strength & conditioning. When asked why she chose the lifestyle that is BBB, Siân giggled to herself before conveying in her native tongue “100 per cent because of the community. I’ve made some close friends and not only does that drive me to come every day; but we hold each other accountable… And we laugh every single day.”
However like most warriors there is always the initial fear before joining a tribe for Siân her confidence was a crucial factor. “I am so shy. So when I first came and saw wall to wall rigs, I was intimidated!!! I told myself that I wasn’t strong enough.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][us_image image=”10455″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text] Yet here Siân stands. One of our most committed members who chooses to get up before the sunrise. Training with her fellow 0530am legends, now proves she has what it takes to be one of the strongest in the gym; both mentally and physically. When she first walked into the gym on our special Friends & Family Week, Siân was HOOKED. Her goals changed from “I want to get in shape to I want to get better and stronger.”
One of the most exciting questions that our MOTM’s get asked is how the coaches and fellow members helped them along the way.
“I took the Rise challenge fairly seriously and gave that a good nudge. It helped me to shed that last bit of weight that is so hard to lose. Plus when you have friends who are doing the same workouts and the same things in life, you tend to support each other along the way. BBB give us the tools to pursue a healthy lifestyle, and the coaches make working out fun and enjoyable. It’s the whole package!”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Evidently while a warrior woman Siân also stands as one of us and still struggles with challenges. So when we asked what hers were, she replied with a smirk. “I am one of those people who puts things I don’t like/ can’t do at the bottom of my list and I have to learn to prioritise these things if I want to improve. And I need to stop smashing Messina and rosé like it’s going out of fashion…”
So where is she now you may be wondering? Off fighting the hordes of thirsty men who chase her down the street, or perhaps turning water into rosé for her fellow warrior women?
Well we found out where Siân was at and where the road has taken her, “I am the fittest I’ve ever been, plus I feel confident again, which is something I’ve battled with for so long. I also push myself out of my comfort zone a lot more than before.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][us_image image=”10456″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
