Next Lifestyle Camp up and running - grab your spot!!

Sophia McDdermott Drysdale FIT

This isn't just a BJJ camp (although there is 2 hours of technique and training every morning), it is about all the aspects that are important in creating a fabulous and healthy lifestyle. This camp includes healthy food/nutrition, movement with yoga and sculpting workouts and the mental aspect where I have a holistic facilitator who does the guided meditations and Warrior Within workshops. This camp will  be covering the theme of eliminating negative self talk which is such a big thing to  hold us back from getting what we want in life. 

The best thing about the camps though is the sisterhood and the lifelong friendships that are created to BJJ. This will be my 6th camp and a wonderful sisterhood that has come about from these. 

Here is a link that has loads of info: there is a PDF you can download.

Here is how you can book your spot with payment options: let me know if you would like to do a payment plan.

Sophia's 5 Day Challenge, done and dusted!

Sophia McDermott Drysdale

Last week I held my 3rd 5 Day Challenge. This was about the mental aspect of health and fitness and the focus was on goal setting and planning. I arrange a task where the ladies had to work backwards from their long term goals all the way to their daily goals. This was probably the toughest of all the tasks.  The next task was to create a vision board, to help manifest all that they wanted in life. The 3rd task was provided by Sheila Kennedy who has a business, Sounds From Source and The Athlete Sportsbag where she focuses on getting that athlete to the next level by working on the mind and body. She contributed with a wonderful  relaxing meditation that was filled with some positive affirmations. You can check out here work here: 

the 4th was all about snuffing negative thought patterns and replacing them with positive affirmations and understanding that you deserve to have all that you desire and finally on the last day I provided a workout that was a yoga/zen workout. The focus was strengthening through stretching and breathing through the movement. My aim was to offer a way to de-stress through moving the body. 

For those who would like to see this workout it is on my YouTube Channel. Please subscribe to stay tuned for more workouts.

I truly hope that everyone enjoyed the challenge and found it worthwhile. You can join the group for future challenges here:
