Katie joined Total Care Personal Training with her Husband to be Doug, so they could look and feel great on their wedding day.
This is what Katie had to say… “I have always had a goal wedding weight in my head and I ACHIEVED IT!! I lost 4.5kg over 12 weeks, as well as losing inches all over my body, but most importantly I stuck to the programme for the whole 12 weeks, nutrition and all”
What made you decide you wanted/needed to start a programme?
Having tried for years to lose weight, tone and strengthen my muscles and having always been reasonably active I was getting incredibly frustrated that nothing I tried, no matter how hard I worked, ever really did the trick. I was losing a few pounds here and there, taking ages to lose them and putting them back on almost instantly. I was reasonably fit, but really hadn’t managed to get the transformation I was so looking for. As we were getting married in Nov 2017 and with support from my now husband, we decided that the programme offered a TCPT was the only thing I’d never really tried and that it was worth a shot to have the confidence in myself on my wedding day.
How do you feel now you have completed your programme?
AMAZING!!! I cannot believe how much my shape has changed, how much weight/inches I’ve lost and crucially, that I’ve actually kept it off. I’m so proud of myself for sticking to the nutrition and I really enjoyed learning how to weight train in a sustainable and sensible way.
What personal goals have you achieved? Weight loss if you monitored it, strength, personal etc
I have always had a goal wedding weight in my head and I ACHIEVED IT!! I lost 4.5kg over 12 weeks, as well as losing inches all over my body, but most importantly I stuck to the programme for the whole 12 weeks, nutrition and all. I struggle with willpower on occasion, particularly around food, but to be able to follow this through has been really important for me and it gives me confidence for the future that if I really wanted to make a change, that I have a programme in my armoury that I know works.
I’m also obviously much stronger than I was and went from a 30kg to a 70kg squat, a 6kg to a 12kg flat fly and am really enjoying being able to see and feel my abs!
What do you like best about being trained at Total Care Personal Training?
It’s not a gym that’s full of body-builders and athletes but more a place full of normal people who are just trying to take better care of themselves and that makes it really accessible. neither Tommy, Steve or Liz are intimidating and they always make sure to tell you how great a job you’re doing and acknowledge how hard you’re trying.
It’s also just fun. Everyone wants a chat, the music is great and you really feel like you’re in it together and let’s face it, when you’re working hard, eating well and spending 2-3 hours a week in the gym training it’s really important that you enjoy the time you spend there – and I really did!!
What would you say to someone on the fence about training here?
DO IT. Do it, do it, do it. It doesn’t even have to be forever but if you have a goal and you’re willing to do your part, then the team at TCPT will help you with the physical side of it. Honestly, it’s been such a great experience and genuinely all the hard work is so worth it to feel as good as I’ve felt since we started the programme.
How did you find your coach’s and their methods of training?
Fab. Different but equally effective!
Absolutely love you guys and even though it’s been only 4 weeks I’m already missing my routine and missing catching up with you.
finally, the BIGGEST THANK YOU EVER for helping me achieve what I honestly never thought I could. I’ll forever be grateful and you helped make our wedding (and our wedding photos,crucially) truly wonderful.
