My Story

I have spent most of my life overweight, frustrated, stressed, and endlessly exhausted. If you described my current lifestyle to me five years ago, I would not have believed it. Although I had a vision of how I wanted to look, I could never have imagined feeling, behaving and living as I do now.

As a child and teenager I was always overweight. I was often teased and grew up very aware that I was different to most kids. In my later teenage years I started to discover health and fitness. I learned about healthier food choices and started to pursue different forms of exercise (jogging, gym classes, weights, swimming etc.). Experiencing the positive impact of good nutrition and exercise sparked a lifelong passion in me.  In my last year at high school I got super fit and lost 20kg. I felt awesome. Unfortunately, this weight loss was short lived.

Despite my aspirations to live a healthy and fit life - study, work, alcohol and stress took over and came to play a big part in my life for many years. I kept relatively active and lost weight a couple of times. However, I always regained the weight and was never able to establish consistently healthy routines. Overtime, I gradually gained more and more weight... I spent years stuck in an “all or nothing” approach to diet and exercise.

Jade Osborne Before & After Photos

Around 2012/2013, at 27 years old I hit my rock bottom. On the surface, my life was good; I had an amazing job, I was engaged (and wedding planning!) and living a fun lifestyle – wining and dining, partying and travelling the world!! But beneath the surface, it was a different story.

I was broken, exhausted and had lost confidence in myself. I was gaining weight rapidly and suffered from insomnia, depression and anxiety. My resting heart rate, blood pressure and blood sugar were all heading in the wrong direction. I was drinking heavily (in part to cope with pain and stress). My petite frame was starting to suffer – my knees hurt, my feet/ankles would swell in the summer and I couldn’t walk up a hill without dripping in sweat. I was wearing size 18 clothing. I felt out of control in all aspects of my life – my weight, health, relationships and work. I was stuck.

Why I don’t believe in “cheat” or “bad foods”

Food or “diet” is important to me. It’s a key part of the physical, mental, emotional and social experience of being human and thriving. BUT IT’S NOT A CULT. I allow myself the freedom and flexibility to "eat whatever I like" and therefore the notion of "cheat” or "bad food" is irrelevant.

Be a Breakfast Rebel

It saddens me that social norms seem to constrain what many people view as acceptable to eat for breakfast. In western society “normal” everyday breakfast food is typically seen to be things such as packaged cereal, toast, porridge, snack bars, muffins, pastries, scones, fruit, yoghurt, and eggs. But really, what is ‘normal’? Who is ‘normal’? …

Following someone else’s meal plan will not get you their body…

It’s great to learn from others, try new things, and look for external inspiration. However, there is a big difference between learning from someone and copying them. Remember to be YOU, and eat for your needs and lifestyle!

We've still got spaces on #summerfit 8 week challenge - starting on the 8th of July.

Over the 8 week's you'll deepen your understanding of wellbeing, fitness and weight loss (Lead by nutritionist Sheree Beaumont - Personal Trainer & Nutritionist) AND receive practical nutrition and fitness support customised to you. 😎

DM myself or Sheree if you'd like to learn more! You don't need to be a Les Mills member to particpate.ENERGY ⚡️ Do you bounce out of bed in the morning? Wake up feeling refreshed? Or do you hit snooze for the 4th time and roll back over for that extra 5 minutes? ⁣

Energy comes from a variety of places, in many shapes and forms. We can pick up on others energies which can influence our day and mood. ⁣

We can eat food (our fuel) which gives us energy to expend during the day, both physically and mentally, and then we have energy that comes from adrenaline... this is the energy we need to be more aware of. ⁣

Stress in any way, shape or form can cause our adrenaline to spike and our cortisol to rise in response. We get sent into a fight or flight response and we suddenly have ENERGY. ⁣

Have you ever noticed that? You become so overtired that you’re wired? Pump back so many coffees, or cram too much in your day? Push too hard in the gym or struggle to get enough sleep? ⁣

Our bodies start to become reliant on this adrenaline based energy, which of course over time comes to affect our ADRENAL GLANDS (the little guys sit on the top of your kidneys and produce predominantly cortisol and a few of our other sex hormones). ⁣

The problem is, these guys can get too overwhelmed and overworked when stress gets to high (either real or perceived) and we wind up hitting BURNOUT 🥵⁣

We need to take care of ourselves, and ensure we are getting the right kind of energy to fuel our day, rather than running ourselves into the ground! I’ve been through BURNOUT, and I want to help you prevent or get out of yours! Or at least have more energy to do the things you love ✨ ⁣

We will be covering topics like ADRENAL FATIGUE in #summerfit 8 WEEK CHALLENGE finding ways for you to best rest and restore hormonal balance. If that sounds a little like you, or you want to know more, there are still a few spots open ✨ DM for info!⁣

I'm about to join the Personal Training team at Les Mills Howick! I’m available for PT sessions on Monday, Wednesday & Friday. I have a range of early-mid morning and late afternoon/evening time slots available.

I can support you to find exercise you enjoy, build confidence using gym equipment and make long-term changes to daily habits, mindset, fitness and nutrition.

Living a healthy lifestyle has not always come easily to me and I've often struggled with weight, stress, sleep, alcohol, and exercise consistency. Over the past 5 years, I've slowly changed my lifestyle and maintained a 40kg weight loss. From this experience I have a deep empathy for everyday people struggling to lose weight or improve fitness. I truly understand the power of exercise to change your life! 💪🏼🏃🏻‍♀️
