Rockstar: Nives Filice
Please join us in congratulating Nives FIlice, Colonial's Financial Controller, on being selected as this quarter's Rockstar Member! Nives was nominated as a Rockstar because of these admirable qualities:
- Dedication. Nives is committed to her workouts and more recently to her nutrition program, which she has followed for the past several months.
- Inspiration to others. Nives shares her passion for health and encourages others to strive to achieve fitness goals. Many people at CGI are now involved in programs that she has introduced them to.
- Variety. Nives has participated in many wellness pursuits, including a recent CrossFit competition in Bermuda and a rowing competition in the UK.
- Supportive. Nives is supportive of employees at work, providing career advice, and is always there to lend a hand even if the work is not within her job description.
Nives credits much of her success to the Stronger U program, saying, "I started on the Stronger U program, being inspired by my CrossFit gym members who had lost weight and developed shredded bodies by doing this. I am very goal oriented and like accountability. The program makes you weigh yourself daily, take waist measurements 3 times per week and log your macros on a spreadsheet each week to be sent to a coach on Sunday.
The coach then adjusts your macros based on the progress they see. You also send in photos of yourself during certain times. I have been on the program for 32 weeks and have lost 27 pounds, which is sustainable. I also eat what I want as long as they conform to the macro levels set so in that way it is not as confining as most diet plans.
It is definitely the 80/20 rule, diet being the 80. I am bringing sexy back for my 50th in February! My CrossFit workouts are much better from a cardio gymnastic point of view. I can do consecutive toes to bar and pull ups now and almost have a muscle up."
