Personal Trainer Profile – Lisa
My name is Lisa and as a mum in her 40’s I realised there was more to life than being unhappy with my weight! So I chose to make some changes and finally do something about it. For most of my adult life I have been a serial ‘dieter’. Although I felt I worked hard and lost weight, it would normally go back on – sound familiar?
It took me a long time to realise that I was making two pretty big mistakes that were making sure the weight always went back on – I always ‘dieted’ and I never exercised. The difference for me over the past few years has been starting a healthier lifestyle plan rather than another ‘diet’. Consistently watching what I ate and switching to healthier options. Also, the key was making sure more calories went out of my body than in by adding some gym time into the mix.
Without struggle there is no progress…
After nearly 20 years of virtually no exercise it was not easy getting my body to work hard! That first day starting out my confidence was pretty much zero. Mentally it was even tougher…if you have ever come up with an excuse not to exercise or go to the gym I guarantee I will have used it first!
Slowly I started to see results and could push myself harder as my fitness increased. Just one year on I had lost 40kg and drop from a size 24 to a size 12. No gimmicks, no magic potions or pills, no restricted diets of food that tastes like cardboard – just healthy options and moving about more. Sounds so simple now I wonder why I never done this years ago!
Knowledge is key to a healthier life
In May 2011 I qualified as a personal trainer, group fitness instructor, boxing and kickboxing instructor. Boost Fitness was then founded to help others reach their goals. May 2016 I was studying once more and completed my Diploma in Fitness. In addition to expanding my PT experience, this gave me more knowledge for re-hab training and working with those with special conditions.
As somebody that has done it themselves I know how hard it is to find the time to exercise as a busy mum, how hard it is to get motivated and how hard it is to stay on track. Most of all, I also know it can be done. For me, all of this was achieved alone (and it was tough!) but I am here to help you, so don’t waste any more time – contact me by email or call me today on 0405 942124 for a complimentary training session.
