Lisa loses 9.5kg in 9 weeks
As a personal trainer it is sometimes hard to admit that we need coaching and advice in our own training in order to progress ourselves and reach the goals we have set.
I am very fussy in asking for help because i am a personal trainer and wont just settle for anyone. I sought Kat out because of her experience and knowledge of training and eating and commitment to being healthy from the inside out.
I was training for my 2nd fitness model competition and although i eat very well and train hard i was struggling to kickstart the fat loss i needed in order to be competition ready. I needed to lose 3 inches off my hips, 2 inches off my waist, a stone in weight and about 7-8% body fat in 9 weeks.
I had been monitoring my measurements in the 8 weeks prior and wasn’t getting anywhere. I contacted Kat as i know she has competed in a lot of competitions and i needed her advice, support and guidance in regards to my eating and preparation so i could be ready. I wasn’t sure that i could do it in 9 weeks but i was determined to give it my all.
We only had to change a few things to my eating and wow the fat just fell off and my body went into overdrive. Over the 9 weeks prior to my comp, Kat was always there answering my emails and giving me so much support i felt like she was there with me.
Having someone coach you makes you accountable to them, and improves your success rate at actually realising your goals. She kept me in check and answered all my questions. We made a few adjustments along the way as my body became better at burning fat.
I am proud to say that in 9 weeks i dropped 9.5kg, 7.5cm off my hips, 5cm off my waist and my body fat in mm went from 118.8mm to 66.6mm.
Kat helped me to focus each week on how i was going to feel, and made me rate each week how i was feeling, something i had never done before. It made me look at my own mental state and helped me to realise that the more positive i am the greater the results.
Kat always gave encouragement when i needed it, advice when i asked and endless support and praise when i emailed her my weekly measurements and updated photos.
If it wasn’t for her i would have struggled to be ready for my comp, but i am glad to say that i competed last week and looked stunning. I am proud of myself and very thankful for having Kat in my corner.
