What motivates me everyday is the pursuit of helping women feel amazing, confident and content in their own body. For years I have been encouraging friends and family to get involved in regular exercise. After transforming my own body, I had the experience of being able to tweak and create personalised nutrition and training plans to help my friends drop their unwanted body fat. Dropping several dress sizes, friends of friends were amazed at their results and through word of mouth were requesting my services. So the journey of Tara Grimes Fitness began. I hold a BA (Hons) degree from University of Ulster and an MSc from Queens University Belfast, however I found myself studying again for my gym and nutrition qualifications. It only takes a few days or weeks to become a qualified trainer, however I believe that my decades of sporting experience coupled with my personal ups and downs of my own fat loss journey enables me to connect on a very real level with others experiencing these challenges. Its really important to understand and empathise with women when their bodies negatively change and no longer responds to certain training stimulus the way it used to. Having that real life experience has no doubt contributed to the success stories that my business has produced. Its a privilege helping 1000’s of women make over their bodies in a fairly short space of time, get in control of food, instead of it controlling them and ultimately leading happier more contented lives.
AS A BUSY MUM
I understand the challenges regarding time, energy and family commitments, hello… I have been there! Tailoring the program for maximum fat loss around other life variables is what makes my program so successful. Having a young family, homework to help with, school runs, after school activities, all those lifestyle issues have to be factored in. However, I do believe we all have the same hours in the day and time utilisation does count for a lot. Cooking meals that suit all family members, getting the kids involved are all part of the overall plan that contributes to success. I know what it is like trying to cook for fussy, sugar loving kids, but believe me when I say, positive changes can be felt throughout the entire family. All my recipes are kid friendly, so if I can do it so can you!
