Award-winning fitness expert, Dean Hodgkin is the man behind Fi7ness. He has designed and delivered innovative workouts in 36 countries and worked on varied projects with a number of well known high street brands. His written work has featured in national newspapers, a wide range of leading consumer magazines and many trade publications in addition to which he has authored 2 books. Dean brought his extensive experience, gained through a 30 year career in the fitness industry, to create this truly unique programme.
Dean said: ‘There are many different workouts on the market but not all of them can promise to deliver results in terms of fat loss and shaping up. In order to guarantee success, a fitness programme has to deploy exercises that target all muscle groups and should also be intense enough to stress your body to stimulate positive change. This programme not only ticks both of those boxes but it also takes advantage of proven sports science methodology and embraces evolutionary principles to create a workout with a difference.
Esmee Gummer is Jess’ friend and also Personal Trainer. Esmee has been putting Jess through her paces, making sure she is challenging herself and also developing her fitness knowledge as she goes. Esmee also has her own story – when she was 18 she had an operation which resulted in her being paralysed from the waist down – she was told that she would never walk again. Refusing to accept this and with determination, hard work and a positive mind, Esmee provided the doctors wrong and is now living an extremely active lifestyle as a successful Personal Trainer.
Esmee said: ‘It is so exciting to be part of Jess’ journey. During our training sessions, Jess has learned to enjoy fitness and really feel the benefits from working out. Her confidence is on the rise and she’s pushing boundaries that before she never thought possible. It’s very rare to find clients who already have a strong mind and Jess is one of those people. She uses her mind as a tool to push herself even further in the workouts. Due to personal experiences, I have learned that anything is possible if you put your mind to it!’
