3 Common Workout Setbacks


Hey brides and babes! Sam here with Forever Bride and I am SO excited for today’s episode. But first, I want to remind you that if you like this episode, please leave a review and subscribe. We have new episodes launching every week with some really spectacular guests and we want to share them with as many people, so your reviews help with that!

Also, if you haven’t officially become a Forever Bride, please sign up at foreverbride.com/join and find our private group on Facebook, it’s called Forever Brides! The group and the newsletter provide so much advice and guidance for all of the things that will come your way while wedding planning and I would love to connect with you outside the podcast!

I have in the studio someone so amazing. His name is Nigel Skiathitis, and I want to share a bit about him quick before I formally introduce him. So Nigel and I met last February, at The Forever Bride Market, which if you haven’t RSVPed to yet, please do so! Go to Facebook and look up The Forever Bride Market, its November 10th and I want to see you all there! But we met for the first time there at your booth and you were so nice and embodied so much joy! It’s great to be here with you again.

Nigel, will you please tell our listeners a little bit more about you, your background, and what you’re doing now!

  • 12 plus years in the fitness industry. Have spent the last 4 and a half years with Basecamp Fitness. Helping launch in Southern California. Found a love for fitness around the ability to help people and feeling like I was having a positive impact on not only the members but also people I worked with.

That’s incredible. With that being said, what do you think are the 3 main issues people face when it comes to working out?

  1. Time / Efficient workout (35 minutes) Get great results in less time. Calorie burn / be in the shape you want to be in. (less time)

  2. What to do

  3. Motivation

Question: Do you guys work with brides to create a timeline? Or what advice would you give to a bride or someone planning for a special event or vacation when it comes to goals & timelines?

Question: I won’t get into this much, but what is your personal philosophy on food? Do you follow the 80/20 rule or what? What’s your favorite recipe or go to meal or snack?

Question: What motivates you? Or what did, because I’m sure it’s habit now to workout? Is there someone you look up to?

Question: What advice would you give to someone who is just starting to workout? Because going to classes, I know from experience, can be a bit scary and intimidating! How early should they arrive, what should they bring, etc.

Tune in to hear all of Nigel’s answers!

Question: What is the class schedule like? How early and late do you do classes? All the working brides out there might not have time to go on a lunch break.

Question: How intense are the classes? Mentally prepare me for what I’m about to experience haha

Question: Do you guys offer merch? I know for me, I never know where to get workout clothes. There are so many options from TJ Maxx to Lululemon. Personally, I have some old leggings and my Forever Bride tank top that I always wear.

Do you have any other tips or tricks you want to share with our brides?
