I joined the SFX Heatone camp on its opening day back on 5/9/2016, wow I can't believe that its over 3 years ago.
I met Debi in the car park and we took our first steps into the unknown, haha.
Everyone seemed a little nervous and apprehensive, but after the first week, and talking to all the lovely ladies, I realised that everyone had their reasons for joining, and all those reasons were different and personal to each of the ladies.
I joined as I lost both parents within 15 months and I was finding myself in a dark place. I have never been officially diagnosed with depression but, looking back at that time I think I can say I was at the lowest I had ever been.
I always regarded myself as fit and active, netball, running, going to the gym, but the sessions at Heatone opened up a new form of fitness that I really enjoyed, fitness of the body and mind.
After the 8 weeks, it was a no brainer, I signed up like a shot. My husband said he had his wife back.
When I was asked to assist Debi during Becky's maternity leave, I felt honoured that I was trusted to help the ladies at SFX. To give back and encourage other ladies is something I really enjoy doing. I've been there and there were lovely ladies who helped me on my journey.
The last 3 years has seen my outlook on life completely changed. I am fitter and healthier. I eat so much better and I have met some lovely inspirational ladies, who I know will be friends for life.
“I was always a chubby girl from my teenage years. After graduation, I met the love of my life and got married. It was then when I got pregnant and gained over 100 pounds. After I delivered by boy, I was at my heaviest of 350 pounds. It became difficult for me to keep up with my job and to take care of my baby. It was then that I decided that I had to do something."
"He believes that people of all ages and capabilities can benefit from exercise. He is willing to help anyone who wants to reach a certain fitness level with hard work since there is no shortcut to wellness. He works with each of his clients to make them stronger and flexible. He wants to make people good about themselves."
"Finally, comes the core strength training which is extremely effective in getting perfect abs in less than six weeks of time. Performing crunches works best on the upper abs, but at the same time, the lower abs and oblique should be strengthened which can be done with the leg – lifts. The routine mentioned above if followed is sure to give perfect abs in less than six weeks’ time."
