Hello, everyone, and welcome to our new home — the CGX app!
Ironically, the idea behind the Caroline Girvan eXperience all began in my actual home back in 2020. It started with just me, my dumbbells, and my phone. I was recording another quick workout to help motivate the wonderful people I was training one-to-one who, at the time, were also at home due to the pandemic. Helping them to achieve their fitness goals was such a positive experience — reflecting back now, I can see it was also helping me.
Fast-forward two years of releasing content on YouTube and 2 million incredible, inspiring people joining me from across the globe! We smashed many sessions, but equally we had many days when it simply felt harder. During hard times, I always remind myself that in order to see a rainbow, we must first see the rain.
As a community, we have had so many unbelievable moments together, and I am eternally grateful for all the support and motivation you provided me during those two years.
CGX is a new beginning. It has been created for you. It’s a place to explore, learn, and to challenge and build the body and mind.
Likewise, CGX has been created for me, too. I needed a space of my own where I have the freedom to communicate and share more with you. To share what I have learned. And to use evidence-based findings to point me in the direction of better health, while allowing psychological and physiological feedback to lead the way.
There’s one key point I try to always keep in mind: bold statements require context. We are only sometimes the ‘average’ within a study. Education is empowerment, and empowerment helps us to form self-confidence: “a feeling of trust in one’s abilities, qualities, and judgement.”
At the core of CGX, training and nutrition will be the fundamentals. Those main compound movements, the balanced plate… with diversity to bring the fun! And I’m so excited to bring the fun!
It is an honour to share this with you… and I hope you have fun exploring!
Let’s go! Cx
