After months of thinking about it, and after some encouraging words from someone already attending Karens classes, I finally plucked up the courage to sign up for Karens 12 week Health & Fitness Challenge.
After my 2nd child I never lost the weight I’d gained during pregnancy and then I slowly started putting on even more weight. I was in a real rut, making all the excuses as to why I couldn’t find time to exercise and my healthy eating was always going to start tomorrow!
Karens classes are so much fun and always different, so you never get bored. Karen is an amazing trainer, she explains exercise options depending on fitness levels so you never feel out of place, and she has a knack of saying the right thing to motivate you when you’re tired or struggling.
On top of the exercise I found the weekly team sessions very motivating and these really helped me identify and manage my bad eating habits (you can’t outrun your fork!).
Everyone is so encouraging and it’s a really friendly environment – even while sweating it out we still have a laugh.
Over the 12 weeks I lost 10.7kg, 5.7% of body fat, and gained 2.4% skeletal muscle. I could run faster and improved heaps on the strength tests. I feel like a new women, while it was awesome to lose the 38cm’s around my body (I enjoy clothes shopping againJ), most of all I love feeling fitter, stronger and heaps more energetic!
For those thinking about losing weight or getting fitter, just take that first step and join up, you won’t regret the commitment.
