So listen guys, I am not here to upload perfect looking videos after I've mastered a particular exercise. I prefer to show you the struggles behind getting and remaining strong - the good, bad and downright ugly. . I broke some GinaFit records on a night when I didn't want to go to the gym. It was 9pm, I was cranky and I had forgotten my headphones (the horror!) But I sucked it all up and ended up getting my first 3 pull ups with a pronated grip (palms facing away from me). This exercise is harder than a neutral or supinated grip because it engages your back muscles, which many women neglect. Mine are very weak because I don't train them as much as I should. So last month I wrote myself a 4 month training programme to help me achieve my goal of 6-10 pronated grip pull ups by end of April. And I'm already at 3 after just 5 weeks into my programme. . I almost never write myself programmes because I never stick to them. But this year I made a commitment to finish everything I start, no matter how long it takes. Also, I can now touch the bar with my toes on the hanging leg raises (first time in over 10 years!). I can now do a pistol squat with weights. Still a lot of work to do but I'm getting better every time. I was not born strong. But I plan to die strong...well into my 90's if it were all up to me. . My question to you is, what steps are you taking towards reaching the goals you've set for yourself? Which promises do you keep breaking that are stopping you from getting where you want to go? . . #transformation #ginafitmadrid #motivation #persistence #smallgoals #teamnoexcuses #beyourbiggestfan #noexcuses #keepthepromise #onlinetrainer #keepyourpromise #strong #perseverance #goalsetting2019 #imperfectfitness #theuglytruth #imperfectfitnessmodel #uglytrainingface #uglygaintrain #personaltrainer #votd #videooftheday #flexfriday💪 #melaninfitspiration #normalpersonaltrainer #pullupseveryday

More beginner demos as requested: how to perform a squat and how to do a basic deck squat. Good for firming your legs and butt. Make sure your heels are glued to the floor. By lifting them, you put too much pressure on your knees and could end up with an injury. Work with your ROM (Range of motion). Not everyone has enough #hipflexibility to go all the way down and get back up. But if you practise enough, you CAN get there. . For the deck squats, play around with the hand positioning. Soon you'll find you don't need to use your hands. If you can do an air squat (a squat with full ROM), the deck squats will be easier. If you have any further questions, you know I'm always here. . . . #hipsdontlie #ginafitmadrid #legsworkout #tipsandtricks #personaltrainer #firmbutt #onlinetrainer #fitspo #demos #fitnessdemos #beginnervideos #fitnessbeginner #hipflexibility #startsmallmovebig #flexiblehips #legsstrong #piernas #fuerza #gluteosperfectos #selflovespo #bigbuttsowhat #fitnessgirlguide #culosgrandes #culosexy #hipmobilitywork #madrid

Shout out to @jodie.bywater for her hard work prepping her food for a few days. Food prep can be time consuming and overwhelming. But as with everything else, the more often you do it, the easier and quicker it becomes. Rather than allowing your veggies to go bad, whip them all out and turn them into delicious vegetable purees for example. Well done, Jodie! . . #foodphotography #food #foodgains #picfood #creativ #wednesdayvibes #foodpicsdaily #foodpicoftheday #talentshow #foodpreparation #lovecook #lovefoodandpassion #delicious_food #ginafitmadrid #comidasanayrica #pureempower #personaltrainer #kitchengoddess #veggiesoup #healthyfoodrecipes #foodprepqueen #foodprepqueens

🇪🇦 Más abajo. 🇬🇧Deck squats. These are mainly good for your legs and butt. You need an adequate amount of hip flexibility to be able to perform the squats in a controlled manner and not just fling your butt on the ground mindlessly. If you find it difficult to get back up, you can always use your hands to support yourself on the way back up. With time, you'll find that you no longer need to touch the floor with your hands. . 🇪🇦 Buen ejercicio para las piernas y los glúteos. Si te es difícil de levantar te del suelo, puedes apoyarte con las manos en el suelo al subir. . . #transformation #tuesdayfeels #fit #ginafitmadrid #funworkouts #gymshred #transformationtues #piernassexys #gluteos #fitness #dietaflexible #saludyvida #fuerza #mujeresfitness #elprogreso #madrid #flexiblehips #onlinecoach #torrejondeporte #entrenadora #gymmotivation #personaltrainer #strong #worldwide_moods #hipmobility #mobility

I think this is my new favourite exercise for my butt and abs. Might as well kill 2 birds with one stone, right? This exercise really lights up my butt and my abs and leaves me breathless and sweaty after 3 sets of 15.

Seated single leg squat (modified pistol squat). If easy, use a lower chair/bench. If difficult, use a higher chair. Play around with the movement. And be sure to do both legs. So if you do 4 on one side, be sure to do 4 otn the other.

Still working on my pistol squats. I got some emails on Facebook for a modified version using a chair so I'll post that in a moment and I can't wait to have some company to practise them with me. Practise makes perfect and if we persist, we'll eventually achieve our goals. . . #transformation #ginafitmadrid #motivation #persistence #smallgoals #squat #goals #pistolsquatchallenge #slowprogress #consistency #homeworkout #patience #smallstepseveryday #progress #fitnessmotivation #keepgoing #stronggirlsrule #personaltrainer #flexibilitytraining #singlelegsquat #calisthenicsgirls

🇪🇦 Más abajo. 🇬🇧Gina's Fit tip: Do you sometimes crave ice-cream? Wash and freeze some grapes and have a cup/bowl of those next time. They seem to be a really good alternative to stave off cravings for calorie dense, processed foods. Give it a try and let me know if it works for you. Happy Sunday! . . Te apetece un poquito de helado? Las uvas congeladas es una alternativa muy buena en vez del helado. Ya lo sabes para la próxima...a congelar uvas entonces. ¡Feliz domingo a [email protected]!

I feel like I have such a long way to go. Some days are better than others and it's going to take a long while. There are days when a little voice tells me to pack it in, to give up, because it's too hard. But I'm sharing my progress (or not) with you guys if only to keep myself accountable. No longer will I give up on my goals when they seem overwhelmingly difficult. One day I'll look back and I won't believe how far I would've progressed. What is one thing you would like to be able to do? I'm happy to help you with tips for progressions. For example, if you'd like to learn to do a pistol squat and are starting from scratch, you can start with a chair by sitting and standing on one leg. Pm me or let me know in the comments if you would like to see a video using a chair. . . . #progress #progression #votd #stayfitdontquit #pistolsquat #dontgiveup #wedontquit #dontquityourdaydream #instavid #gymmotivation #pistolsquatprogression #pistolsquatprogress #ginafitmadrid #personaltrainer #onlinetrainer #imperfect #transparency #consistency #accountabilitycoach #dontgiveindontgiveup #followyourdream #madridspain #internationaltraining

Friday laugh: I don't have the mouth of a sailor, but I'll let one rip every now and then. Here goes my new swear word, 'Brexit.' I can't take credit for it though. But next time someone pisses me off, I'll just say, "Brexit you!" I might also put my middle finger up for that special effect. 😂 . #lightenup #havealaugh #jokes #itsajoke #itsnotthatserious #friday #fridayfun #fridayfunny #fridayfunnies #fridayjoke #jokeoftheday #ginafitmadrid #picoftheday #pictureoftheday #fotd #photooftheweek #brexitmemes #brexit #besilly #besillywithme #onlinetrainer #besilkywithmeforever

🇪🇦 Más abajo.….............................. 🇬🇧Bad knees? Weak, achy knees are often times caused by weak quads and/or tight hip flexors. These simple leg lifts will help alleviate your knee pain if you do them consistently. If you find that you can't lift your leg too high while it's straight, or if your quads (top of your thighs) hurt, or if you have to rock/swing your body, it means you need them the most. This is my Thursday throwback. I had sore muscles on the day I recorded this (legs were on fire). Now I remember why I didn't post it, because I tripped and nearly bust my arse. Joke is on me again. I sped up the video a bit. But make sure the movement is slow and controlled. . Si te duelen las rodillas, haz esto. Puedes usar una silla normal y corriente. Si lo haces 3-4 veces a la semana (5-10 minutos), notarás algo de diferencia después de unas semanas. Al principio te dolerá y eso significa que hay que fortalecer los músculos en las piernas. Te ayudará mucho. ¡Créeme! . . #thursday #throwback #badknee #badknees #badkneessuck #kneepainrelief #gymmotivation #ginafitmadrid #personaltrainer #onlinetrainer #fitspo #ginafittips #kneepaintips #beginnerfitness #helpyourself #fixyourknees #fixyourform #fixyourknees #kneepain #exerciseathome🏡 #helpfultrainer #freefittips #ilovehelpingpeople #itrainonline #youarefit #youarefitworthy #beyourbestself #bepainfree

Beginner pushups. My back is straight, my core is tight (belly button pulled in). My breathing is slow and controlled and I bend at the elbow to lower my body then push back up. My head is not hanging (neck is neutral). Play around with what feels comfortable for you. No need to go all the way to the floor with your chest. With time, you'll get stronger and will be able to go lower (increase your ROM). Some of my clients have started out with this simple technique and can now do 8,10, 12 push ups. All you need is a few minutes, 3-4 times per week, going at your own pace. Try to do 3 sets of 8-12 repetitions per round. Can't do 8? Well do 1 or 2 or as many as you can. After 1 week you will be doing more. I promise! . . #workitwednesday #howto #getfit #juststart #ginafitmadrid #startwhereyouare #fitnessgirl #personaltrainer #video #nogym #howtodopushups #starttoday #startatzerofitness #onlinetrainer #wednesdayquotes #ginafittips #homeworkout #gymnotneeded #beginnerworkout #pushup #wednesdaymotivation #stability #instahelp #helpfultips

Happy Sunday guys! This sign sums it up. Don't you agree? Where are all my coffee lovers? Scroll across to see the best macaroons in the whole world, I think. Don't feel guilty for eating the foods you love. This will cause an unhealthy relationship with food and we don't want that.

The only thing I'm flexing today is my tongue/taste buds in this freezing cold. Swipe across to see the delicious looking treats up close and the snow on the rooftops outside my hotel window when I woke up this morning. I'm not made for the cold. But when you love travelling, you have to accept the pros and cons. That's also called balance. . . . #ginafitmadrid #personaltrainer #travel #travelphotography #traveller #travelling #instagirls #minivacation #igtraveller #igtravel #tourist #tourism #instapassport #holidayfun #belgium #brugge #bruges #brugesbelgium #ladieswhotravel #girlswhotravel #balance #training #travelandtrain #belgianchocolate #weekendgetaway #flexfriday at Bruges,belgium

After seeing that 72 year old lady knock these out with a plate, I had to try. Mine is 10kgs and I'm comfortable with that for now. Watch till the end to see my progress on the weighted pull ups with a monkey swing. I'm up to 4 in a row now. Such great fun. I could live here. @coach_seanc, what do you think? . . . #transformation #tuesdayfeels #fit #gymshred #transformationtuesday #gymmotivation #ginafitmadrid #personaltrainer #onlinetrainer #fitspo #exerciseaddict #crunches #pullups #calisthenics #fitnessfashion #fitfashion #fatloss #fitnessmodel #nutrition #fitnessmotivationdaily #fitness #health #fitjourney #fitlifestyle #votd #hipmobility #hipflexibility #abworkout
