Lucy McConnell's secret to living a healthy life!

December 19, 2018 10 Comments

Who is Lucy McConnell?

Lucy McConnell works as a Personal Trainer and is studying to become a dietician at uni. Health and fitness is her thing, she lives and breathes it and is very passionate about all areas of nutrition and exercise. For Lucy, joining the gym 4 years ago turned her life around, she lost about 25kg and was able to get herself out of a continual binge drinking cycle that would repeat itself every weekend.

"Over the years the gym has become my little haven where I could recharge and challenge myself. And now I get to help people do the same thing every day in my job which I adore!"

Healthy Living With Lucy

Lucy's advice to anyone wishing to make a healthy lifestyle change is to realise that real, lasting progress takes time! As much as she wants to tell us that there is a rapid 8-week program that designed to give you the body of your dreams, she strongly believes that there is no such thing as a quick fix!

"In fact, many of these plans or diets that promote rapid weight loss are actually really unhealthy for you. Adding in small changes to move your body in a way that you love and feels good for you is far better and more sustainable. If you don’t see yourself still doing it in 3 months time it is probably a no!"

Dieting With Lucy

When it comes to diet, sustainability is key for Lucy! Most of her meals are filled with good healthy whole foods such as veggies and fruit, whole grains and lean proteins, however, she still enjoys a little bit of chocolate or ice cream!

"Food is so important in not only feeding our bodies but also our souls so depriving yourself of those foods you love is a recipe for disaster!"

Lucy's Guilty Pleasure

"Oats! It is very rare that a day goes by where I don’t have two bowls of oats topped with peanut butter, banana and maple syrup and perhaps with some protein powder and cinnamon stirred in. A definite favourite meal."

Working Out With Lucy

Lucy's Workout schedule consists of a combination of weight training and high-intensity cardio sessions. She usually aims for 4 weights sessions a week and 2 F45 cardio classes.

"I used to hate cardio, but since F45 I've changed my perception of cardio training!"

Her weights days are nice and simple! Her aim is always to go as heavy as she can while still maintaining correct form.

"Your muscles will never grow if you don’t challenge them in every session! Aim to increase the amount of weight you are using each week or adding on a rep or two to each set as you progress week to week. This will guarantee that you are always getting stronger and your muscles are continuing to grow."

Lucy's Leg Day Routine:  

  • Barbell Squats 5 sets x 5 reps (90% 1 rep max)
  • Romanian Deadlift 4 sets x 8 reps
  • Superset:
    Barbell Hip Thrust 3 sets x 10 reps
    Bulgarian Split Squats 3 sets x 10 reps
  • Superset:
    Leg Extension Machine 3 sets x 10 reps
    Lying Leg Curl Machine 3 sets x 10 reps

"The swimsuits from the Hessian Collection surprised me a lot! I'm usually disappointed by swimsuits that I order online, they just don’t fit right. When I put on the bikinis from the Hessian Collection I was blown away at how soft the fabric was, they felt high quality and they fit perfectly. I will definitely be adding more Hessian bikinis to my collection this summer, especially now that I know I will not be disappointed!"

Commenting is a key aspect of the photo experience, whatever message they’re sending. But for those of us too lazy to come up with witticisms, there’s always the like button.
It’s only funny when it’s someone else. Untag and pretend it doesn’t exist. The more you comment the more it shows up on news feeds.

Ladies, the weather is heating up which means bikini season is just around the corner! There’s already temptations of replacing gym sessions with beach walks. However, giving up resistance training could cause more damage than you think!

Why resistance train?


Resistance training is crucial to maintaining a proper fitness routine. Your muscles will waste away without it. Once you’ve hit your twenties, muscle loss increases rapidly unless you work to maintain or build it. if you don’t use it, you lose it.

Only a few weeks off resistance training can cause muscle loss (if you’ve ever broken a bone you would already know this!).

Have you found yourself constantly procrastinating, pressing snooze or feel yourself just being lazy?

Then stop reading, I can’t help you.

Jokes 😂 but seriously I can put in my two cents worth now that can help you but at the end of this post it’s up to you to activate the advice/suggestions I’ve made.

If you’re feeling unmotivated, lazy or always finding excuses... the truth is you just don’t care enough. 🤷‍♀️

When you know exactly what you want and it is honestly IMPORTANT to you... the motivation comes easy. You won’t make excuses and you’ll find ways to make it happen.
