Review: UNiDAYS Event & Results With Lucy Workout

Last week I attended an exercise and nutrition event hosted at UNiDAYS HQ to celebrate their 25% discount for students on the Results with Lucy online exercise and nutrition programs. It was such an amazing day and I left feeling inspired to get back on track with my health and fitness.

WHAT IS UNIDAYS?

myunidays.com is a website that gives students FREE access to discount codes for top brands and restaurants when shopping online. You will need to register for an account so that they can confirm that you’re a student but after that it is easy to login and find discount codes.

I registered for UNiDAYS as soon as I became a student again last year.

 

WHAT IS RESULTS WITH LUCY?

Results with Lucy was started by Lucy Mecklenburgh (you may have seen her in TOWIE or in a magazine) and her personal trainer Cecilia. Lucy told us how she used to live on a diet of biscuits, sandwiches, pasta and cocktails before realising that this made her feel awful and that she needed to change her lifestyle. She found Cecila through a friend and they started training together. After just a few weeks Lucy saw results and started to look and feel better.

Instead of bring out just another celebrity workout DVD they decided to create an online program where people could access workout videos, nutritional advice and meal plans. There are workout plans aimed at different levels from beginners to hard core, so you can start at the level that suits you. There is also the option to subscribe to the videos on a monthly basis and a special student package.

UNIDAYS BLOGGER EVENT

The day started with a talk from Louise, the nutritionist on the Results with Lucy programs.  She was very keen to emphasise that Results with Lucy isn’t based on a fad diet or removing any of the major food groups – we shouldn’t be afraid of carbs and should focus on the good old fashioned advice of everything in moderation and focusing on natural rather than processed foods. Louise emphasised that we’re all different and should make positive changes to our diet in a way that suits us. For example, you might want to go cold-turkey on processed foods whereas your friend might prefer to gradually cut down, or vice versa.

Next we began our workout with Celia, the PT. This was my favourite part of the day. Celia had such amazing energy, which I found really motivating. We started with squats and moved onto arms exercises then abs for a full body workout. It was nice to do some new exercises and I was working up a sweat by the end of it despite not doing a single burpee.

Finally we had lunch (see here) and a more casual chat. I was nice to hear more about Lucy. Despite looking gorgeous and running several businesses she was very down to earth.

The day ended with goodie bags!!

I had such a great time at the event and wanted to blog about it as soon as I got home, but I thought it might be more helpful for you reading the post if I actually tried a few of the Results with Lucy online workouts.

 

RESULTS WITH LUCY FREE WORKOUTS & RECIPES

On the website there is an option to access 3 free workouts from each plan and view a selection of recipes.

So far I have tried 2 workouts from the ‘Wobble to Model’ program. The workout is split into smaller sections, for example, a warm up, toning section, cardio and abs. There are a variety of trainers on the program not just Celia, which I was a bit disappointed about at first because I love Celia but I found that they were all likable as well.

I think the intermediate level was perfect for me, I could feel the burn by the last few reps of an exercise but I didn’t feel like I was absolutely killing myself. After just 2 sessions I’m sure I felt more toned, which is quite amazing! At the UNiDAYS event, Lucy said that she typically sticks to the intermediate levels of the program, so that gives me confidence that I would see results by doing these workouts.

The only thing that I don’t like is that you buy access to a program for a set amount of time rather than download it to keep forever. This might just be because I am used to buying exercise guides that come as a pdf with photos of the exercises.

 

Overall, I think these guides would be great for someone looking to get back into health and fitness because each exercise is explained well in the videos and the trainers help to count the number of reps for you. It would also be good for someone looking for more motivation – I find that videos are a lot more engaging than a printed exercise guide and you can become part of the #RWL community.

 

Hope you enjoyed this blog post.

Do you think the Results with Lucy program would work for you?

    This sounds like a wonderful program and it’s great that you don’t need to make a commitment. It would be motivating as it would make you feel part of a community and it’s fantastic that it offers different levels so that you can choose the best suited for you.

    Sounds like a great workout I really need to get back to eating healthily and exercising.

      Hey Joanna, I think is can be so hard to get back into it during the winter. I used to do a printed exercise guide but now I’m enjoying videos because they seem a bit more motivating.

    I think that Results with Lucy sounds like a fantastic program and I especially like that it is not based on fad diets which is really unhealthy for you! x x

      Yeah – Louise the nutritionist was really great and I think it would be a good program for people who are just starting to eat healthier.

      She was so lovely and down to earth – I think that really comes through in the workout videos as well.

      Hahaha, UNiDAYS is amazing – I signed up as soon as I started my PhD!! Results with Lucy was fun and it’s great they have some free videos 🙂

    I think it’s good that companies like this offer discount to students as many tend to forget about healthy lifestyles when they’re a student x

      Totally agree 🙂 Results with Lucy have a special student program as well with a different student friendly meal plan!!

      That’s really good to hear. I saw the before and after photos on the website, but you always just think they pick the best ones and don’t know how everyone else has done.

  9. February 16, 2017 / 12:51 pm

    It sounds like a great event and fitness program. I would be tempted to give it a try.

  10. February 16, 2017 / 2:45 pm

    This looks like such a fun event! I wish more blogger events were centered around fitness and health.

      It was so much fun. I suppose the events you are invited to depend on the type of blog you have. There does seem to be a trend for fitness events in the UK. I went to one for the launch of a paleo cereal and we did a fitness class before it – I just didn’t blog about that one.

  11. February 16, 2017 / 9:46 pm

    This looks great. I’ve never heard of it before.

  12. February 17, 2017 / 4:34 am

    wow, this is nice to have a something to do. Will definitely enhance out health condition and gaining new friends too. looks like you had fun work-out!

    This event sounds so good and I like the idea of the results with lucy program to motivate me to get fitter 🙂

      It was really fun. There’s always the free trial of RWL. I’m going to be trying a few more videos this week 🙂

      Hahaha – thanks 🙂

  15. February 17, 2017 / 8:12 pm

    This looks like a really great exercise program and because there’s no commitment I would be more likely to stick to it!

  16. February 17, 2017 / 8:23 pm

    This sounds like a great programme and i love the fact that there is no commitment!

  17. February 17, 2017 / 8:57 pm

    It looks like it was a fun blogger event and I think it’s great that the exercise programme gives some free videos for people to try them first.

  18. February 17, 2017 / 9:23 pm

    Wish I had known about MYUNIDAYS sooner. Sounds like such a great program. I really enjoyed your exercise photos.
