Duration with Skye: 14 Months

​For 2 years I did what most girls are told to - plenty of cardio!  I did Zumba and Spin (and more Spin!) and not once did I see my body change.  I was size 8 and didn't really need to lose any weight but what I always wanted was to be toned,  it just never happened.  A friend mentioned lifting weights to tone up and I immediately had images of big body building women in my head.

Then one day, I'm sitting in the dentist's waiting area, flicking through the Ulster Tatler when I came across an article Gary had written "Here Come The Girls".  Gary talked about women spending endless hours doing aerobic classes and eating very little to change their shape - but getting nowhere.  That was me! I was desperate to feel great in my bikini for holidays so thought, 'why not - I've tried everything else'.  I emailed Gary who set up a meeting with me where we discussed what I should be eating and how I should be training.

I started with the Semi Personal Training Trial which I highly recommend as I learned about good form when lifting and the different types of exercises you can do with weights (surprisingly to me there are lots!).  I have been doing strength training for 8 weeks now and have lost 7lbs and plenty of inches (the inches was what I really wanted to lose) and feel fantastic! Every week I take progress photos and every week I see a change! And if I couldn't see it myself, my husband tells me regularly how great I look and how small my waist is getting!  I can't thank Gary and the team enough for educating me, I just wish someone had told me sooner...I could have saved a lot of time and money!
