With Bri from Clean Shred
For the past 2 and a half years, Bri has been building her business – Clean Shred Transformation and Performance Centre. What started as an online program, quickly grew to a face-to-face program and small group training gym and is now a big group training gym, with a smoothie bar, supplement store, yoga studio (totally where I do my yoga just quietly), infrared sauna and holistic health program for every single member. Bri’s passion is teaching people how to live healthy, happy and fulfilling lives where they feel great every day. She loves all things health, the ocean, nature, food and her beautiful little dog Indie.
A soul sister to me is….
Someone who is supportive, encouraging and brings good energy to your soul. I know when I leave after hanging out with my girlfriends (soul sisters) I always have a big grin on my face on the way home and feel so good.
My favourite things to do with my soul sisters are…
Go on big walks by the water to have breaky. Sit on the couch in our trackies and have green teas and the occasional night out for a boogie and some laughs.
How do you maintain quality friendships with so much on?
I think your true friends are going to be your true friends forever even if you don’t see them every weekend. Sometimes its hard to get everyone together with busy schedules and more responsibility but I don’t find it hard to keep in touch with my friends, it sort of just happens automatically because they are like family to me. If I haven’t seen one in a while it always feels like we never missed a day when we get together. When you want something you’ll prioritise it and make it happen even if it’s hard sometimes and that’s how you know who your true soul sisters are.
What are your favourite traits that your soul sisters have?
Being encouraging and supportive.
Always being there when you need them. I know my friends have been there for me when I have needed them the most without me ever having to ask.
What makes your soul light up?
Seeing people make positive changes in their lives and step out of their comfort zone. There is nothing more satisfying than the smile on someone’s face when they say they can’t do something and then with some support/encouragement they achieve what they thought they couldn’t and surprise themselves. SO many young girls lack confidence and mentally hold themselves back with a fear of failing. Seeing them transform into a confident person definitely lights up my soul.
In my personal life swimming in the ocean, exploring nature, sitting on the beach with a book, playing with my dog and going for walks with my partner or friends are about all I need to keep my soul lit up. Plus I, like Hollie, have a business that I absolutely love waking up to work for every single day.
What causes are you supporting at the moment?
My whole life is devoted to improving people’s health and wellbeing on a daily basis. This is definitely my number one cause. It’s not all about a great bod or a 6 pack. It’s really about the snowball affect it has on your whole life. Sleeping well, feeling energetic, feeling fit and confident, fueling your body with good foods, loving yourself and in turn being someone who everybody wants to be around. This is probably more normal for a lot of people reading your blog but for so many people feeling tired and struggling through everyday just surviving is the norm.
Another cause I support is cancer research. Like Hollie, cancer has touched my family far too much and anything I can do to help find cures and new treatments is something I will support. I donate weekly to cancer research. It’s not a huge amount but if everyone supported these causes even with something small it would go such a long way. Cancer is a subject that affects almost everyone at some point in their life.
