My passion for fitness came at a time when I was very over weight and very unhappy. I had tried countless times to lose weight with limited success. I would start at a gym, go for a few weeks and stop then start eating healthy, then stop.
I had a revelation that if I really wanted to change then I would need to take a whole new approach…after all, the definition of insanity is to think you can keep doing the same thing, expecting to see a different result.
I convinced myself that a lifestyle change was needed, not a diet, not a gym membership but a completely new approach.
To get started I self educated myself about training and tried a ton of diets.
I trained 6 days a week ate very strictly for 3 months and lost 8 kg’s, I kept training and eating right and finally after 9 months I lost nearly 20 kg’s.
Needless to say I was a new man and people really noticed.
People wanted to know how I did it, what workout and diet did I follow to get such good results. I explained there was no quick fix and it was just having the motivation to make a lasting chance and committing to being consistent. The days you don’t feel like training are the days you need to go.
After all, Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.
How did I stay Committed? It was purely the fact I didn’t want to go back to the old me. That single thing drove me to keep hitting the gym and educating myself around how to eat healthy in a way that was sustainable.
It was a lifestyle change I wanted and needed not a fad.
I became passionate about helping other like me who couldn’t get out of a rut, who desperately wanted to get fit and healthy but couldn’t, at the end of the day, If I can do it anyone can!
So I decided to gain a formal qualification to expand my knowledge and began studying Personal Training at AUT so that I could then have the tools to help people like you.
