I joined the studio back in November 2019 and since then I’ve been on quite a journey.
To date I’ve lost 13lbs but I’ve also gained strength, stamina and a totally different mindset.
Prior to joining the studio, I’d never done regular exercise and always ‘thought’ that I didn’t really need to. I’d always ate healthily and was quite happy to carry a few extra pounds. However, the extra pounds seemed to be increasing and I also noticed that my anxiety levels were high in general.
My one to one with Jack was a positive experience and I agreed to sign up for the 21 day challenge which involved attending sessions and tracking my food intake. Needless to say, I lost weight and was happy with my results.
Fast forward to March 2020 and I was now a member of the VIP group and was still continuing to lose weight and gain strength.
Then Covid struck and attending sessions at the studio was no longer an option. I stuck with it and began participating in the online sessions. I also signed up for the couch to 5k which was a huge thing for me because I’d never imagined myself as a runner!!!
I completed the challenge and kept Jack updated each week by sending him photos of me looking very sweaty and red once I’d done my run!
Coming out of lockdown has been fine. I’ve enjoyed being back at the studio which is immaculate and a very safe environment to work out in.
I now organise my week and plan ahead which ALWAYS involves exercise. If I can’t make a class, I go for a walk or run. It just seems such a very normal thing to do. I can’t imagine not exercising. Jack, Kate and the team have kept me motivated throughout this experience.
If I’d been left to my own devices, I would have definitely given up and sabotaged all the hard work that I had achieved in the beginning. This still counts for me now. I appreciate the weekly check ins and feel a valued member of the studio. A massive thank you to Jack and Kate :)
