When I first joined Vision Personal Training Frenchs Forest, I was in desperate need of some help to get my life back on track. Yes, I was overweight, and yes I had become very unfit. But more than that I realised that I spent more of my day planning how I could avoid certain sporting activities, or fun family activities than actually participating in living. Somewhere deep inside I was either embarrassed at my size, or held fears of failure, or even fear of physically fitting in the ride or boat seat etc. I especially used to think that I had disappointed my family as to how I had 'let myself go'.
I had found short-term success in many other 'diets', but as soon as my eating changed, back came the weight. At Vision Personal Training I was food educated, and now know that I was actually eating too little before and that my non-existent metabolism kept getting even slower with each fad diet I attempted. I literally had no chance at success.
From day 1 I was dropping weight. I wasn't losing it, as I have no intention of finding it. With each week I learnt more and am confident that this is a lifestyle change. I have never felt that I have missed out on foods as I can honestly say I struggled at first with all the food I had to eat. Strange but true. I was baffled when I'd stand on the scales each week and the number kept dropping.
My trainer was so supportive and the community of friends I have met on this journey has far surpassed what I would have ever thought possible.
Now although my goals may change from weight loss to muscle gain, to general cardio fitness, I know that Vision Personal Training can help me to continue to find my success in my journey. All of the trainers are fabulous and genuinely supportive of all the clients at the Studio. No question is too silly, and no concern is too small.
I am so proud of myself for making that first phone call and heading in for a chat when I felt like there was no hope of success.
Vision Personal Training Frenchs Forest helped me find myself again. My energy levels are huge. I am many things…a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend. I am a singer who did not want to be looked at when I performed, as I was very unhappy with my appearance. My physical situation was controlling my life. This is no longer an issue. Now I am all these things and so much more.
I have entered a few 5km runs (I never dreamed I would ever do this) and I LOVED it. I have walked in an endurance 35km event with a group of 'Visionaries' and had a ball. Who knows what I'll do next.
The one thing I do know is that Vision Personal Training has helped me make this lifestyle change. It will last forever. I will achieve more, and Ali and her team at Frenchs Forest have helped me to do this.
