I had joined local gyms previously but once inducted I was left to my own devices which meant I quickly stopped going and ultimately gave up. I tried doing exercise routines at home also but again would stop after a few weeks. My daughter was 4 years old but yet I failed to lose the baby weight I gained whilst pregnant, this was getting me down and with my 40th birthday approaching I decided I needed to act now. I had a goal, I just needed the guidance and support to get there.
I didn't want to fail, I wanted to do this not only for myself but to prove to people around me that I could do this. Having failed on previous attempts I wanted to succeed. Walking into the session for the first time was a little daunting however once over that initial greeting I felt at ease and over the weeks felt relaxed.
Having the support from Jack, Shane and the team, I have totally changed my daily routine. I looked forward to exercise oppose to dreading it. I've changed my eating habits not only for myself but my family. I'm more aware of what I'm eating, jotting everything down on my fitness pal and recording my exercise.
I now realise I don't have to exercise for hours on end to get results.
I understand what foods are best for me and now choose high protein foods to keep me fuller for longer. I still have the cheeky treat or night out, I just pull it back over the week or do a little more exercise.
I have enjoyed the support and guidance from the team, even when I've not fell up to it they give me the push I needed to get me back. It's exactly what I needed.
The support from Shane from a nutritional point of view has been fab, to add the girls on the group have been amazing sharing their stories and ideas.
In 3 months I've lost just over a stone and several inches from my waist, arms etc. In addition to this I feel so much happier! I'm getting into my old clothes, I am planning more which ultimately relieves stress. I'm not coming home and making wrong choices with foods due to planning. I have a scheduled fitness plan in place which fits around my other commitments. Since starting I have found I have more energy and sleeping better.
I could not thank JSPT team enough, from start to end they have made me feel welcome. It's like a little family, none judgemental friendly members. What they have helped me achieve over a short period of time is amazing and I'm extremely grateful. You gave me the kick up the bum I needed and put me on the right path for a new stress free healthy lifestyle.
Thank you :-)
