Meet beautiful soul, Kelcy Meades! She thrives hugely from the outdoors, the sun and people with positive energy. She also loves her mental and physical self care routines which include meditation, yoga, motivational reading, skincare, the gym and walking her little Chihuahua bestie. We caught up with Kelcy to chat about all things self care.

"I definitely hold empowering women, inspiring motivation and helping in confidence at such a high priority within myself and the women in my life." - Kelcy Meades

Importance of routine 
For me personally, I find it easy to fall out of routine which results in me losing motivation and makes it that much harder to get on track. That's why it’s super important for me to maintain my routine to keep that motivation, as it keeps me feeling happier and fulfilled.

How to start the day off postive 
I start my days off with morning affirmations when I wake up which I have found so amazing. I couldn't recommend it enough! It puts me in such a great mindset for the day ahead. Try it, ladies!



The importance of sleeping properly and eating healthy
I love my sleep! Sleeping has always been a priority for me and luckily has always come easily. It definitely helps a lot with feeling fresh and rested which shows on your face and skin.
Eating properly and healthy however has to be a conscious effort for me as I have always struggled to put on weight and always need to strive to eat more. When I consciously monitor my intake I can definitely see the difference. It makes me feel good from the inside out.

Sticking to a routine
The evening before I will set goals for the next day in my mind, or sometimes if I have a bigger day ahead, I write a list and tick off as I go. Who doesn’t get a kick from doing that satisfying tick off your list!
With my daily skin routine and eating, it's all about getting into those habits with allocated times, especially in the morning before you leave the house and in the evening before you go to sleep with your skin.

Skin tips!
I love coconut oil! I eat coconut oil and I lather my skin in it too!
Try exfoliating you’re whole body weekly and then moisturizing your skin daily if you can. Your skin will thank you for it.

Here's my easy and achievable skin routine:
- An antioxidant serum to help your skin repair itself.
- A natural skin moisturizer to soften.
- Exfoliating that dry skin away to get that fresh clean glow.
- Facial sunscreen. Keep that skin young!

Life advice 
Everyone is different so set realistic goals for yourself only.
Explore that healthy lifestyle and find what you love about it which will make it easier to pursue further!

Thanks for having me, Archie & Wolf.
Love what you beautiful ladies stand for.
Love Kelcy x

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.

Being a personal trainer I’m in the gym all day most days so my energy output is pretty high compared to most. My long term goal at the moment is to compete at IFBB in the bikini division in October next year, so at the moment, being in off season my trainings all about GROWTH. Building up my glutes, hamstrings, upper back and shoulders to create the X shape that the judges look for on the day. I ride my bike the 15 minutes to and from Surry hills everyday to get my body moving before my first client, I also don’t like public transport much and who wouldn’t want to be able to eat a bit more due to the extra output! I also do my strength training 5 days a week which consists of 3 leg focused days and 2 upper body days. My gym, Fitness Playground also offers Pilates and yoga so I try and get in to one of those a week to ground me a bit.
