Prior to starting at the studio I felt tired, breathless and unfit and I was constantly suffering with colds. I would often fall asleep in the afternoon when I got home from work. I was constantly hungry and snacking between meals but never feeling full. My mood was really low and I really wanted to change how I felt and looked but didn't know how to, or where to start. I had tried every diet and fitness plan around, and although I had success in the short term with some, I couldn’t maintain the results in the long term and soon put the weight back on, and more.
I was worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up with everyone in the sessions and that people would judge me for that. I thought that I would have to be strict with my diet and completely cut out foods that I enjoy and avoid social occasions. I was wary about it fitting in with my life, my job, family and studies.
Pretty much everything has changed for the better since starting. I am more active, my weight and body shape have improved, as well as my mood and I enjoy exercising! 27 lbs has disappeared and 10 inches from my waist and hip. I also have a better understanding of how to eat healthily without having to starve or completely cut out treats and food that I enjoy.
Whats helped me? Jack and the other instructors, Shane and his nutrition challenges help me to look at things differently and identify ways to keep improving. Also all of the other ladies in the group. Everyone is so supportive and friendly, I have always looked forward to going to the classes
I've had gradual, steady weight loss equating to 3 dress sizes. Massively increased fitness and energy levels, no more afternoon naps needed, especially as my sleep had improved too! My mood is better and I am generally more positive. I feel stronger and healthier and like I have control of my weight and fitness for the first time in 30 years!
