DIANA – AGE 36 – JANNALI, SUTHERLAND SHIRE, SYDNEY
I had put on more than 35 kilos after having my first baby. I was feeling very negative about my weight to say the least. Not only that, my abdomen muscles split 4.5 cm which was not good, basically it was not good for me to exercise hard core because I could do damage to my internals & also my back because of this split & the lack of core strength I had at the time. I was eating badly & I was tired all the time. I started training with a trainer outdoors for a couple of months & then I realised that my knee (which I have always had problems with) was getting worse so I had to have an arthroscopy (cleaning of torn meniscus in my knee cap). After the operation, I fell into a rut & didn’t exercise for 2/3 months. I was told I had to start with low impact for my knee & because my abdomen had not completely closed, I was worried about that too.
I went to see Mike Evans @ MEFIT personal training Sutherland Shire & he started me off on Core only exercises. We then went to more intense training, I have since joined the Wednesday Body Blitz Group Training sessions along with a 1on1 Personal Training also. I have dropped 3 sizes, my abdomen muscles have closed down to less than 1cm, I feel great & I am more conscious of what I put into my body.
I recommend to anyone who is willing to listen how good it is to take this type of interest & motivate yourself. I have also completed the Valley Stampede at the end of 2012, something a year before I would never have attempted because of lack of fitness, lack of confidence & lack of motivation. Mike Evans is very knowledgeable about food and exercise, his training is very versatile & he mixes it up, sometimes we do boxing, circuit, running & then there are our outdoor Group Training sessions too so it is sure that we never get bored or in a rut. Since training with MEFIT Gyms Sutherland Shire, completing the 8 week weight loss challenge he held last year & also the Valley Stampede, my life has done a 360 in terms of health & fitness and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks Mike!
