When Alan first walked through our doors he had some serious goals that he wanted to achieve. Over the previous years he had fallen into a rut that he was struggling to get out of.
His weight was increasing and his energy levels were decreasing and this was affecting the quality of life that he wanted. Fast forward to today and
Alan has dropped over 21lb of fat, is fitter than ever, is feeling great has transformed his quality of life in the process.
“I was fairly pissed off in my old job and found myself coming home after work and sitting on the couch comfort eating with sweets, chocolate, etc. which just fed into other bad habits. The weight was going on, my energy levels were gone and I just wasn’t happy with where I was.
It had been on my mind for a while to get back on track and I had started doing a bit of exercise myself but wasn’t seeing the results that I wanted. I was doing unsupervised gym sessions but I didn’t know what i was doing.
My main goals were to lose the weight i had gained over there years, get stronger and fitter and just get more active for my self and my son. He had gotten very active and I was struggling to keep up with him. I didn’t want to be getting heavier and heavier- no son wants to see their father constantly sitting on the couch.
Eventually I decided that I need to get some support, guidance and accountability if I wanted to make progress and see the results I wanted and got in Touch with Steve after seeing him on Facebook
After getting started, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I signed up for 3 days a week and the guys put a lot of emphasis on cleaning up my nutrition and easing me into my program. As the weight started to drop off my initial goal of fat loss became secondary as I started to feel more energised, less stressed and healthier in myself.
I started wearing clothes that hadn’t fit me for years. As I learned more about the importance of healthy food I stopped comfort eating and replaced it with healthier habits such as cycling to work, walks with my family and better food choices.
I started adding in a few runs and also got back to my Tae-Kwon-Do training which I hadn’t done in years. This was alas a big goal for me when I started.
I committed to the program from the start and have a much better outlook on life and better self esteem as a result. The results have also had a positive knock-on effect to my family and they are healthier as a result.”
We asked Alan what he liked best about working with us and what advice he would give to anyone in a similar situation looking to make a change for the better
“The guidance, motivation and accountability made the biggest difference for me. Before I would put things off saying I’d do it tomorrow but tomorrow never came!!! The workouts never get boring as they are changed regularly and very engaging.
My advice to anyone in a similar situation is to just bite the bullet and get started. If you fully commit you won’t regret it- it’s as simple as that.”
