Assessment day: Stepping on the scale. Getting measuring tape wrapped around your thighs, buns, waist and chest. Numbers scribbled in little boxes.
Uncomfortable. Nerve-racking. Exciting. Disappointing. NOT THE END OF THE WORLD.
Week 6 measurements & assessments come with a range of emotions, different for every Kaia girl. I’m here to remind you that they are all just NUMBERS!
These numbers can be exciting when you have devoted these last six weeks to healthy diet and nutrition combined with good attendance to the Kaia workouts. They can be proof of your hard work, dedication and determination. If this is your story, congratulations! Your hard work has paid off. Way to go!
However, realistically, this is not everyone’s story. Many of you may feel disappointed, frustrated and fed-up with the results. This is where you have to be honest with yourself; have you followed the nutrition and diet recommendations? Have you been getting to all or most of the Kaia workouts? Have you made-up classes when you’ve been absent? If you could have done better, I have good news for you! Our next FIT session starts on Monday!!
That’s right, girls, it doesn’t all end this week. BRIK may be ending, but health, fitness and Kaia is a lifestyle. Continue on a strong and healthy path, making choices that will benefit you the next time you’re on that scale.
Stay positive. Don’t beat yourself up. Congratulate yourself when you’ve done well. Take every success and set-back as a part of the journey and KEEP GOING.
Things to think about:
- Muscle gain: Muscle weighs more than fat, so often girls gain a little weight or stay the same through a BRIK. This is where composition comes into play- how do you feel? How do you fit into your clothes? This is what matters!
- We are all different: We all have a unique genetic make-up. Some are prone to weight gain, weight loss, or muscle gain. Accept the fact that you can’t compare yourself to the girl next to you and your body is uniquely yours! Learn to love it!
You are all amazing women, strong in your own way, making this gym and community what it is. Thank you for being a part of our Resolution BRIK, I can’t wait to celebrate with you this weekend!

“Victory isn’t defined by wins or losses. It is defined by effort. If you can truthfully say, ‘I did the best I could, I gave everything I had,’ then you’re a winner.” - Wolfgang Schadler
