DediKate Members Stories

What was your fitness like before you started?

“Zero!!! I’m now smashing level 3 power sessions and running 5kms, so I think it’s pretty good haha! I couldn’t even do a burpee when I started, I had to walk it in and out or the Swiss ball pull ins, but I can now!!”

Cherry McGovern

“Maybe went for a walk once a week if I pushed myself to go. Now I workout at least 5x a week. Since starting this workout ‘plan’ I feel better within myself. I have been on Postnatal depression pills since my last baby 2 years ago. I can now proudly say I’m 4 weeks free of them and feeling better everyday.”

Ellen Hovell

“My fitness was average. I was sluggish and had all the excuses in the world to not exercise. But now I am on level 2 during the Power Sessions and I feel stronger and fitter. I have so much more energy to run after my two young boys.”

Rah Dickson

“Oooo, I would say I was unfit. I love going for walks and found these easy, my only form of exercise over the last 10+ years. But if I was to run I wouldn’t have been able to run for more than a minute or so. Strength was next to nothing, I started with 3kgs and no form of core strength, bladder control was weak. Now, I have just increased my weights to 7kg. While I can’t complete some of the exercises with this weight for the whole duration, there is a huge increase in body strength, and my core strength is slowly increasing.”

Jenna Conroy

We all Start Somewhere!

Throughout various milestones in my life such as starting University, travelling and of course, having children, I struggled to prioritise my health and fitness. This led me to have feelings of dissatisfaction, weight gain and low self-confidence.

It is these experiences that inspired me to help others.

I get it! Life can be tough, but if you take each day at a time, you will be amazed by what you can achieve and by the endless physical and mental benefits.

Believe in yourself and you can do it!

“Just do it! You will not regret it. It is hard to start and it hurts but that goes away and you will start seeing results which is just the best!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need my own equipment?

No you don’t! None of the workouts on DediKate Ground Zero use equipment. This challenge is meant to break down barriers!

What if my fitness is not good enough?

It will be! We start easy and slowly build up. Everyone is encouraged to do their best, and if you need to take breaks that is 100% fine!

How will I know what to do?

The DediKate Ground Zero page will have all the information you need, plus a planner that tells you which workouts or exercise sessions to do. Get in touch with us via DediKate anytime!

Should I get clearance to exercise?

If you’ve given birth recently, been injured or have a medical condition, you should definitely get clearance from your health care provider first.

How do we do the workouts?

You will have access to them all on DediKate. Simply hit play and follow along with us. We will be encouraging you every step of the way!

Is this challenge suitable for postpartum?

Yes, but only if you have clearance to exercise. Check with your midwife, doctor or healthcare provider. We also recommend you see a physio or women’s health physio, especially before you move onto Week 4 of this programme.

I can’t run, is that okay?

Yes it is! We start off by walking and then build up to an optional jog. You can also sub these for other cardio modes or any other workouts if you wish. It’s all about making it work for you.

Is nutritional advice included?

Yes! Nutrition is not part of the challenge, but with your DediKate Membership you get hundreds of recipes, support and advice from our DediKate Nutritionist.

What if I can’t do some of the exercises?

That’s absolutely ok! Just sub the ones you can’t do for ones you can!
