Yay! Thank you for visiting FITGIRLCODE. This is our story.

This blog is run by two best friends from Rotterdam: Christel & Aranka. We have been super best friends forever and have even lived together. In the winter of 2012, after inhaling a bag of M&M’s we talked about getting ready for bikini season. Having been very active all our lives we never really had to watch what we ate.. until..

This is the part where it gets really scary..

We got older! ^_^

So we started with fitness and running, it helped a bit but we did not really see any results. Until..

This is the part where it gets really interesting…

We started eating clean and lifting weights :)! Not really rocket science we know. But back then we thought that diet coke and salad would be our saviour. Now we know differently and are feeling fan-fucking-tastic because of it. We want to share our rules, regulations, tips and tricks. We call this: the fit girl code.

One of our missions is to really get in touch with our readers. Also we want this blog to be about fit girls in the world, not just about us. That would be boring. So feel free to contact us for anything, we are very approachable

Hugs and squats,

Christel & Aranka

    Hi Christel and Aranka,
    first of all, I love your blog! Secondly, I was wondering if you maybe have some tips regarding reading materials or something for eating healthy/working out (I am Dutch so Dutch reading material is also possible). I started with weight training and I am a bit insecure about what to eat and what my body needs. Lastly, I was wondering if you could maybe make a blogpost about what you eat during a day/week? Because most of the times I don’t really know what to make which is also healthy..

      Hi Anna,

      Thank you for the open and wonderful comment. This is exactly the reason why we started fitgirlcode. We had also no idea what to eat and when to work-out. Next to the right tips and tricks you have to find your own way. I for instance have a few breakfast options: yoghurt with fruits and granola, green smoothie, banana pancakes and banana bread (you make in the weekend and enjoy as breakfast during the week). I will posts the recipes asap for you. We will also create one or more posts explaining a bit better what we do, how often and why.

      Again thank you for the feedback and let us know how it works for you. Are you on Instagram? There are some great health/fitness instagram profile that inspires us a lot!

      Aranka & Chris
