About me - a quick Q&A

Thank you so much for visiting my shop! My name is Carly Rowena, I’m a Personal Trainer and Fitness blogger from the UK. I like to think of myself as the girl next door who never wants to have to turn down a meal just to stay in shape, i’m all about independence and finding a healthy and happy way to feel incredible in our own skin.

Please do check my quick Q&A below before you ask general questions as I’ve most likely already answered it! I hope you enjoy reading and watching my little corner of the web. If you have any feedback, requests or constructive criticism I’d be more than happy to hear it.

When did you decide to become a Personal Trainer?
I was never particularly talented and had never known what direction I was meant to take career-wise. After years working in a job that I disliked, I turned to YouTube in the hope that it would point me in the direction of my talents. Luckily for me my incredible subscribers and online community made me realise just how much I loved fitness. It was then that I decided to take the plunge and become a Personal Trainer. I quit my job and one month in I was fully booked! Nowadays I train clients face to face, around the world over Skype, teach classes for incredible brands and meet some of you at my retreats!

Who did you do your Fitness Qualification with?
Lifetime and Premier Training, if you’re interested in becoming a Personal Trainer click here to read my post all about my tips & tricks.

What Camera do you use?
I film and take my photos with either the Olympus Pen, Canon G7X or Canon 5D Mark III.

How long did it take you to get abs?
I have always been into fitness but it wasn’t until I understood the balance between Nutrition, Exercise, Stress and the correct exercises for my body that my abs began to show. I believe anyone can get abs but there are several different types so always be realistic with what your body is capable of and remember abs are not everything, it’s about being the best version of you.

How Can I Lose Weight?
There is no big secret to weight-loss, its simply a lifestyle change. Diets don’t work because they’re temporary and only lead to binging or unhappiness. Small changes make big differences - you don’t always have to remove things from your life to lose weight, sometimes it’s about swapping it for a healthier alternative or adding a new routine to your day. Anyone can succeed, if they really want it.
