My story is similar to so many others, over 50, not exercising, not thinking about what I was eating, high carb intake, going to the pub too often, the list goes on. At 53, I had high blood pressure, failed marriage and a very stressful job. I was not in a good state of health.
I relocated to Parramatta in November 2015, and I decided to do something about my health. I went to where everyone else would go to lose weight, the cheapest gym. I did this for 3 months and although I did lose around 2 kg, my weight loss wasn't constant and I hadn't changed my lifestyle. I was still going to the pub and still partying hard and was not feeling good about myself.
When I heard that Vision was in Parramatta, I decided to give them a try because from past experience, I knew they had good Personal Trainers and the gym, was not so crowded and intimidating as some more commercial gyms. It was the best thing that has happened to me in recent times. Through Personal Training, group exercise and nutritional tuitions, I have lost 10kg and have a new lease on life.
Vision is not the cheapest "gym" in Parramatta, because it is not a gym….it is a Lifestyle Studio providing Physical Training, Nutritional Education and FUN!!!!. To give a quick comparison, I have 5 friends that go to a commercial gym in Parramatta for the past 3 months and out of the 5, only 1 has substantially lost weight - 4kg. The main reason for not losing weight, they all think losing weight has to do with only exercising, pushing weights and running on a treadmill.
In the 9 months that I have been with Vision Parramatta, I have lost 10kg. I can name however, 10 colleagues that have lost substantial weight through the Vision program, weight loss not of only 3 or 4 kilos, but weight loss of 50kg, 30kg, 15kg and numerous colleagues in the 10kg club!!!!
Vision works, it is not a gimmick, it is a lifestyle change that sets out a particular goal and guarantees to get you there if you follow their nutrition and exercise program, whether that be a weight loss, weight gain, performance or just tone your body.
My initial reaction was to join Vision to lose weight but thanks to the great Vision Parramatta Tainers, I have a new lifestyle change that has given me the tools and nutritional knowledge to fight weight loss for good.
