2014 was an absolute gift! It did start with the big
drop due to my dad's health. That made me and my family
realise how poorly we care about our health and how strong the
outcomes can be. This was quite an eye opener for a unfit and lost
person like me and the first thing I did was join Vision without
knowing anything about it. This has been the BEST decisions I have
ever made in life.
When Alex, my trainer asked for a number of kilos to
lose in 9 weeks I said, 13kg and I did not even trust I'd ever do
that. I had been trying to lose weight for over 10 years. Then he
asked me for a long term goal, well I always liked mountains, hence
I set my inspiration to see Mt Everest, so I trained myself for
that. I had my thousand or so doubts whether I'd make it
But with the help of the Food and Exercise diary I
was starting to see results. It felt incredible when I hit 69Kg on
the scale for the first time after many years.
And guess what. From my own eyes I saw the top of
the world!!! I saw Mt. Everest while my feet were on the summit of
Kalapathar (5550m Altitude).
That person with very high body fat, who could not
run more than 300m at a stretch (a.k.a. me), by the end of 2014,
lost over 20kg started running 5km home almost daily. And I dropped
from size 14 to a size 8!
2015, I thought I'd have nothing else to achieve
after Everest last year. But Alex wouldn't let me go until I write
down another unreachable goal. Hence this years goal was a half
marathon (21km!). That was a bit too high for a goal for a person
who can barely complete 10k. However the moment it gets recorded
under the goals, the magic happens. I start training for the new
I still can't believe I could run 21km non-stop.
During the half marathon (Blackmores), I finished '15 minutes'
earlier than I planned! That was simply amazing. Alex has been
educating me on food, exercises all the way until I reached that
2016 is coming. As usual I do have another amazing
goal, again, something to do with mountains. I hope that Alex and
all the champions at Vision Neutral Bay will help me to get
While achieving my fitness goals, it made a very
positive impact on everything else. My family started following me
and they are inspired by their results. My job, my home and my
whole environment was positively changed.
Thank you is not the word for Alex and all the
legends at Vision Neutral Bay! I love the cheerful environment
there with champion trainers and I wish you nothing but the best to
continue transforming lives.
