After a huge weight gain during my pregnancy I had to lose 30 kgs in the most efficient and healthy way.
Due to a knee injury there was little sport I thought I could do and had been off-and-on swimming but doing nothing else. I also work in a highly stressful environment (Financial Services) and so diets have always ended after a couple of weeks trying.
What do you feel that you have achieved:
What has been incredible with UP Fitness and especially thanks to Justin Maguire’s training and nutrition advice, is that in 7 months I have lost 20 kgs with no impact on my mood. In fact I have lowered all my levels of cholesterol, BMI, etc.. and I feel much healthier and happier.
Justin has motivated me throughout the training and thanks to his follow-up and advice with my way of eating I never felt I was deprived of anything. I have managed to keep the diet for almost 8 months now despite frequent business trips, holidays and social events. I can’t deny I did not break the diet from time to time but I have been always advised and motivated by Justin and therefore was back on it immediately.
I feel I have achieved a different way of looking at exercise and weight training and I now feel bad if I miss a session. I actually miss it!
What have you learned:
I have learnt that exercise if properly tailored for you (as Justin has been doing) is wonderful and actually makes you feel and look good!
Also the nutritional advice given has now been incorporated in my way of eating and I have changed my eating habits. What’s next for you:
I would like to continue until I have lost the full 30 ks (10 more to go) and then I would like to continue the exercise with Justin as it has become a treat for me!
What would you be willing to tell others about your experience with us:
Definitely! It will help others who like me had given up on exercise and dieting.
