I was introduced to Vision Personal Training Parramatta by my daughter and Miguel. I had put on a about 8 kilos in the previous year after leaving a very stressful job and losing a sister, I weighed 71 kilos. I look after three grandchildren and I feel wrecked by the end of the day, feeling pain in my knees. I decided that I needed to lose some weight, I lost 7 kilos by cutting back bad food and eating well. I thought I was quite knowledgeable when it came to nutrition! My daughter and Miguel suggested signing up to Vision to help lose a little more weight and build up some strength. I was opposed to this at first as I'd never been to a gym, was not at all athletic and felt I was too old to start at 57, however I reluctantly bought some gym clothes and turned up for my consultation with Luis in September 2016. Everyone at the Studio was so friendly and helpful and made me feel very comfortable.
I started training with my Trainer Miguel twice a week. He was very patient and encouraging and put together a program that worked for me. I soon started looking forward to my sessions and made slow but steady progress with my weight training and incredible progress with weight loss every week. My energy level increased, reached my goal weight within three months and I went on to lose 13 kilos, down to a size 8, smaller than I have ever been. I would have never been able to lose this much more weight on my own. Vision Virtual Training (VVT) is such a great tool in helping you create your own meals according to your macros, I was eating more and losing weight, incredible. I then began a bulk program to continue building strength and improve posture.
I still thoroughly enjoy the challenge looking forward to the next program that Miguel has for me, pushing me to reach limits I did not think were achievable for me. I don't remember feeling this fit and energetic with a very positive outlook on life. I no longer have pain in my knees and can lift my grandchildren with ease. My family and friends cannot believe the change in my appearance and also overall wellbeing.
The Vision program and Miguel have not only helped me to lose weight and gain strength, but have provided me with the knowledge needed to change my eating habits and most importantly maintain a healthy lifestyle and continue to encourage and support me. Other programs and diets help you to lose weight but do not provide you with the knowledge and/or tools required to change your lifestyle forever. The program works, it is not cheap, its an investment in my future, and have received tremendous returns for my investment.
Joining Vision PT Parramatta is one of the best decisions I have made for my long term health. Miguel has been an amazing Trainer, always positive and pushing me to achieve that little bit extra and offering helpful, practical advice and encouragement. Amazing place and team would recommend it to anyone looking to improve their overall health and wellbeing. JUST DO IT.
