Lost 10kg!*



I had never been to a gym in my life and never really exercised. I really love food and am passionate about beer and wine, however it was all starting to catch up with me. My general health was fairly poor and I was your typical middle aged male time bomb…. overweight, high cholesterol and I had just been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes.

My daughters signed me up for an initial consultation as a Father's Day present.  This was a bit of an "ah ha" moment as I could see that they were genuinely concerned about the state of my health and general wellbeing. I thought I needed to give it a go.

Since that day I have been exercising for well over 1 year and much to my amazement it is now part of my routine. I am constantly challenged by my Trainers and think, "there is no way I can do that", but I am amazed and excited when I do I am more aware of what I am eating and what impact it will have on me. I still love my food and drink, but because of Vision I can maintain a balanced lifestyle. Inspired by my journey, my wife has since joined the Vision program and achieved some outstanding results for her own health. My daughter comes to Cross Training occasionally as well. Exercising as family was not something that I would ever have imagined, but it has provided us with another area of connection.

In terms of my results, I am no longer considered to have diabetes. I have lost over of 10Kg and have kept it off for over 1 year. I have increased strength and muscle tone. My fitness levels have improved dramatically and I no longer having a creaking shoulder.

I highly recommend Vison to everyone that I meet who is interested in improving their general health and wellbeing. The Trainers are knowledgeable, passionate and are genuinely invested in helping you achieve your goals. The program focuses on physical, mental and nutritional aspects and is the complete package, and it is sustainable. Most importantly, programs are tailored for your specific needs, and considerate of your individual needs and goals
