I have always enjoyed being active but since being diagnosed with an autoimmune thyroid condition I struggled with energy levels, joint and muscle pain and weight gain. After a while I began to accept this as normal, but it was very frustrating. There were times when the pain was so bad I couldn't get out of bed. I continued to exercise but it was a struggle at times.
I hadn't made any changes because I didn't know what else I could do, I was blaming my thyroid condition for how I felt and I wasn't feeling motivated at all.
Since joining Vision Personal Training everything has changed. Firstly, I'm eating more food than ever and I'm also more aware of what works for my body. l feel so energised all the time now and can't wait to get to my group classes each morning. My trainer Jamie, who has been amazing has worked with me to make my body so much stronger. I'm now pain free and excited to try new things. I've joined Vision PT Running Group and love our runs. This is one thing that I'm still amazed at, as this is something I've always maintained that I couldn't do. l have enjoyed doing a couple of fun runs, one of which was 12 kilometres and I am looking forward to doing Spartan in May. I reached my first 9 week goal in 5 weeks and have never looked back. I've lost 9 kilos altogether and am now maintaining this weight.
The benefits of my experience with Vision Personal Training is that everyone is treated individually and programs are suited to you. I now know what works for my body and I can fit this into my lifestyle. As I travel for work from to time I don't worry about how I'll be able to stay on track as I use my Vision app to plan ahead. With the expertise of my Trainer and through my PT sessions with weights, I've been able to change my shape. I'm so much stronger and have so much energy which also changes your mental outlook as well. I would say to anyone who is looking to improve your health and fitness please give Vision Personal Training a try. I truly wish I knew about Vision way before I did. The support is something you won't find anywhere else, the knowledge and caring attitudes of all the Trainers are amazing. As a bonus I've made a lot of new friends who all support and encourage each other.
