'This is not the greatest song in the world, no
This is just a tribute
Couldn't remember the greatest song in the world, no, no
This is a tribute to the greatest song in the world
All right, it was the greatest song in the world.'
So I'm just saying that this is a tribute to the greatest blog post I have ever written and unfortunately not that same blog post but I will do my best to recreate it.
Things are a changin' around here. So while I have loved blogging my adventures and photography I have deliberately left out a very important part of me. I would say that this part of me really is me. It's me and I am it. I can no longer distinguish the line between me and this part of me so I have decided that I will use my blog and facebook together to bring you this part of myself. I have enjoyed this space where I can separate and compartmentalise my life but the time has come to introduce you to my other half and that is fitness.
Most of you will already know this (because mostly family and friends read this space here) but I am a Personal Trainer as well as an Accidental Country Girl as well as an emerging photographer. I have been a Personal Trainer for the past 8 years. I started young, I know you were wondering how I could've possibly been in my career for so long whilst looking so young. I can tell that was running through your minds but I started this journey when I was just 21.
I have worked in almost every role within the fitness industry. I have trained children (no joke, they hate me), Golden Oldies classes, mine-site health and wellness co-ordinator, pre and post natal training and everything in between. I class myself as a personal trainer, gym instructor, aerobics instructor, Pilates instructor, small group training instructor, transformation specialist, health and wellness co-ordinator, group fitness manager and business owner. I know it's busy right but this is me. This is all of me.
I want to bring you my adventures, my photos and my fitness.
I don't know why I have been reluctant to become an 'expert' within my field but I really know whats going on in my industry. I have been there through the fads, the next latest and greatest, and the real deals. I know how to get results, I know what foods are your best to eat and I know the best fitness to complete but not many others know that the secret to getting results from your clients is the mental. You have to get into their heads. Until you do that you are just receiving empty money. I think I was reluctant because a lot of 'experts' in our industry are just the ones who yell the loudest to get attention, or they hold onto one training technique or idea and promote that as the latest and greatest (which probably is until the next thing comes along or its proven wrong). At the end of the day it all goes full circle and the next great idea is what I have been quietly doing all along.
So from today, from this little blog you will enter my life and I will enter yours. You will hear my adventures, you will see photos and you will experience my lifestyle and my fitness tips which can I just say are solid tips with real life results and experience. I try everything before I recommend it.
So please feel free to share, absorb or ask questions at any time at accidentalcountrygirl @ gmail.com or fivefitness @ live.com.au obviously all together. I love hearing your stories, your experiences and questions so I can post about them, chances are someone else is wondering the same thing.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope you look forward to hearing from me, Kelli Rowles Fitness expert.
Best wishes from the girl who was a trainer when the humble egg and banana were on the outer (poor banana I still ate you even though I was receiving disapproving looks).
