Hello everyone! My name is Becky Osano and I am 27 living in Surrey, working in London in Digital Marketing, I absolutely love my job. It is not directly related to health and fitness, I do all of that in my spare time. I am a qualified Level 2 PT, write a blog and have an Instagram page called @Balanced_Becky_ where I share my recipes, workouts etc. This is where all my #GirlGains love and events are also shared!
So what is my journey? I was a dancer growing up but stopped this to focus on my studies and this is when I started running as a way to keep fit (for free) at uni, I guess this is when I got into fitness for aesthetic goals. I started working in a Marketing job for a sports Nutrition company after uni and educating myself in health and fitness came with the job, it got me off the treadmill and into the weights area. My love for fitness grew further and I began to bake with protein powders and educate myself on macros etc.
This ran away with me a little and safe to say I was all consumed by going to the gym, yoga, clean eating, my macros and putting A LOT of pressure on myself. It started to define me. This is when I met the #GirlGains who enlightened me into finding a balance in my life. I had lost my period for three years and this, combined with being surrounded by a group of positive women who essentially just helped me understand that a lot of girls were struggling with balancing a little obsession with health and fitness and using it just as a tool to be a better version of yourself and have fun with it!
As soon as I realised the amazingly positive impact spending time with the #GirlGains and all the girls at the various events was having on my confidence I understood how important it was to spread the message of empowering women and I am so happy to be a part of this today and so grateful to have found the right balance in my life!
I am really excited to bring #girlgains to Surrey and if you are based in London/Surrey area I hope to see you soon at an event!
