“In 12 weeks I lost a total of 21kg, 20.5cm off my hips, 10.5cm off my chest, 9.5cm off my waist AND 10.5cm from around my thighs.”
I joined Dangerously Fit in September 2011. It was actually quite fortuitous – I had joined another boot camp previously and had been keen to get back into it when I won a 3-month membership to Dangerously Fit boot camp through winning first place in the AIM Great Debate Raffle.
Fast forward to Dangerously Fit boot camp. What a difference! No disrespect to the other camp, but starting at Dangerously Fit, I thought it would be a continuation of what I had started previously. I was definitely feeling healthier, but I don’t think I’d lost any weight.
Helen led the group at Kogarah, and she was amazing. She got straight into getting to know each of us, what our goals were, our fitness levels and she was fantastic at motivating us each and every night to push harder. And her energy was infectious – we started pushing each other (thank you Kylie and Marina, my boxing partners!!). We all jumped into the 6 Week Body Transformation challenge – and to my surprise I actually won it, shedding 10.7kg over the 6 weeks, and claiming a year’s worth of boot camp to top it off – no excuses now!!.
I’ve now lost a total of 21kg as at the end of the Feb-March 2012 6 Week body transformation, and 20.5cm off my hips, 10.5cm off my chest, 9.5cm off my waist AND 10.5cm from around my thighs. I have so much more energy, and I’m always trying to find ways to be more active. I hated running, and could barely run when I first started. Now I’m actually contemplating joining fun runs in my spare time!
It’s great that with Dangerously Fit you have access to a full schedule of classes because it helps me find a class that fits in with my work and personal lives. I’ve had lots of help with my diet and now I am able to manage my calorie intake without feeling like I’m missing out on all the good stuff. I now understand areas I can improve with regards to my diet and fitness, and I have all the tools and support to continue heading towards my goal weight.
Thank you, Helen, Dan and the rest of the Dangerously fit team for helping me take control of my health and fitness!
