Vision has quite simply changed my life, and my Trainer is a huge reason for that. Growing up I was a sporty kid, always active and participating in all types of sports, but mostly athletics (sprints) and basketball. I was never especially good at anything, but I loved it.
In my early 20's I suffered a ruptured disk in my lower back which led to years of chronic pain, at times unable to even work. Coupled with multiple knee operations, I battled to keep active. After losing both parents, I was not in a good place, both physically and mentally. I knew something had to change, but I realised I was going to need help to do it.
When I started with Vision, my goals were to lose around 20kg and improve my fitness. Now some 7 months later, I have lost over 30kg and achieved more than I ever expected, including things I never dreamed possible. As a result of the weights sessions, combined with Pilates, I now have the strength to be able to run regularly for the first time in more than 10 years! My Trainer's encouragement, support, & advice has been nothing short of amazing. His enthusiasm and positivity has helped me develop a healthier outlook and I have found that enjoyment in sport again.
From day one, the entire Vision team, as well as the other clients, have made me feel welcome and supported. It is an inspiring place to belong to, and for the first time in a long time, I'm excited for the challenges ahead. My next big goal that I am working towards now is to complete an Olympic distance triathlon.
