After years of turning a blind eye to my expanding waistline it wasn’t until I was in a changing room with a slightly snug size 14 wedding dress on that I thought when exactly did this happen?!
I wasn’t a huge eater, nor was I the unhealthiest person on the planet, however there was no hiding from that reflection!
With my wedding day looming, I attended exercise classes and tried a manner of fad diets that supposedly ‘worked wonders’ but frustratingly had no impact and left me tired, achy, permanently starving and miserable.
I hated how I looked and it impacted my confidence, my relationship and my work.
Shopping – my favourite hobby – became a chore of working out how to look nice whilst covering up all my problem areas, instead of just picking something I loved.
In all honesty I am not a big fan of gyms/ personal trainers, I always feel intimidated and guilty for having let myself slip but at the initial assessment where I first met Andy, I was pleasantly surprised.
He didn’t make me feel guilty about my lack of exercise or nutritional choices, instead explained why I wasn’t achieving my goals and how the programme he was designing specifically for me would help me going forward.
I can’t even begin to explain how amazing the support I received from Andy was.
As the programme developed and I started to see the changes in my shape – a few extra notches off on the belt – it was exciting to see that Andy was equally (if not on occasion) more excited for me!
It’s this kind of encouragement that really motivated me to stay focused and keep my goals in the forefront of my mind.
After a few months, I lost 22lbs, and dropped from a size 14 to a 10.
My body fat has reduced from 36% to 29% and I have lost 9.5cm from my waist and hips.
I am over the moon with the results and can’t wait for my next wedding dress fitting, I am also sleeping better, have loads more energy and bags of confidence!
I really don’t think I could recommend Andy highly enough, he has quite literally changed my life.
The undivided attention and support from Andy in and outside of the studio is something that you can’t replicate.
All you need is dedication and commitment toward your goals and Andy will take care of the rest!
