A success story….you could be the next!
2020 has been a life changing year for everyone in many different ways, but we could not be prouder of how it has been life changing for one of our Academy members.
The sheer determination, commitment and hard work has been amazing. The honesty, transparency and real-life journey has what has really stood out to us! At no point do we ask you to not be human, we all have hiccups, bad days and personal issues. What we do is guide you through these, help you get through them in a different way than you have done before.
Liz has conquered this with astonishing strength, both physically and mentally. In all honesty we are proud of every single individual and their journey throughout the transformations. Being only human ourselves reading and seeing transformations like this one we can’t help but smile with teary eyes.
Weight loss start date 16/07/2020
Weight loss so far 4st 10lbs
2st 2lbs during the 8 week challenge
I’ve struggled with my weight for a long time, over the last few years I’ve gained a lot of weight and I’ve found life mentally and physically difficult. In September this year I decided that I was ready to embark on the fitness journey to help get my weight off and get fit again. I joined 3-1-5 with a few friends with the plan of attending classes, swimming and getting moving. At this point I was the biggest I’ve ever been and I found any movement very hard. I couldn’t stand for more than 10 minutes without my back aching so I knew it wasn’t going to be easy.
In the past I’ve had history of panic attacks in classes and I also struggle with anxiety so I was really apprehensive. The first few weeks of classes were hard and I needed a chair as I couldn’t stand for long. I had moments of panic, especially when I was out of breath but the more I went the more I could do and the better I felt my weight was going down and I was feeling stronger
I had a one-to-one with Lee and we spoke about joining the Academy. He suggested that being surrounded by people with the same mindset and positivity would be good for me. It would also help with my confidence. Lee was right, it’s been amazing. I’ve loved attending the classes. I’ve felt so comfortable with the team and the staff have been wonderful – especially during lockdown, they bent over backwards to support us and always with a smile.
The thing I liked the most was that their principles around food and exercise made sense to me. I have a background in nutrition and exercise myself so their realistic approach absolutely fit with how I had already been losing weight. I love food and I’m partial to the odd wine – so the flexibility makes it much easier to stick to forever.
In the 8 week transformation I lost a further 2st 2lbs. My fitness has dramatically improved along with my confidence and self belief. I’ve now joined as a gold member, which gives me a full year of their support and advice. I still have a long way to go but I know that the Academy will be with me to the end! Thanks everyone, I’ve loved it!
Congratulations to Liz from us all at 3-1-5!!!
Become your own success story and transform more than your body!
