Real People Real Stories
I’m 36 and a mother of 3.
My journey with the Fighting Fit Academy started on January 6th 2018. I was fed up of feeling tired and disliked what I saw in the mirror . I found it very easy to cover my size and unhappiness in public but behind closed doors it was much more difficult and I couldn’t ever like what I saw.
Day by day the pounds would creep on from comfort eating and lack of portion control.
I finally plucked up the strength and I told myself things had to change! I just needed to put my mind to it and focus and I knew where to go as I had seen transformations happen! I started to regularly attend classes at the Fighting Fit Family Fitness Centre and I found the motivation, so I knew I just had to get my head in the game.
I then signed up to the new bootcamp course they began running as well as continuing the kick boxing fitness and circuits.
I weighed in on my first day at bootcamp and to my shock I was 14st9lbs. That was the heaviest I’d been since I carrying my children, but with the reassurance from the coaches I knew I could get the weight off and that it wouldn’t be a quick fix but a permanent one.
The coaches were amazing supported me through whole lifestyle change; from my diet to building my confidence back up and believing in myself. Before I knew it, with the support from the coaches, I was well on my way to achieve this.
I started to weigh in every Friday. Some weeks I would lose pounds, some would gain but it was expected it was a whole life change.
Over the coming weeks and months I became fitter, stronger, more confident and learnt skills techniques and forms.
In October 2018 I had reached my goal and I had lost 4st 5 lbs. It was the best feeling of achievement I had ever felt alongside becoming a mother!!
The Family Fitness Center helped me to believe in myself again and enjoy going to the gym.
I’ve made a lot of amazing friends along the way who have supported me through my journey.
Joining the Family Fitness Center was the best thing I ever did and I will continue to attend classes as it is somewhere I now call home.
Thank you Richard and Lisa and Reece for helping me reach my goal
I’m now 10stone 2lbs and happier than ever!
