Per­sonal trainer achieves goal

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

WITH a com­bined to­tal weight loss of 116.5kg, the Got Ac­tive mem­bers have made them­selves and their trainer proud of their achieve­ments.

All mem­bers of the fierce team of five had their own goals when first walk­ing through the doors of the gym.

The jour­ney started two years ago with boot camp.

Boot camp left many bat­tered and bruised and nurs­ing strains for days.

The hi­lar­i­ous bunch of women bragged and made their trainer Bree Har­g­reaves blush as they all thanked her for keep­ing them on track.

Set­ting up for the photo, the ladies all agreed they hated get­ting their photo taken, but now, af­ter all the sweat and tears, the pow­er­ful bunch wants to en­cour­age oth­ers to get mo­ti­vated.

“The train­ers are great. I got the one-on-one per­sonal train­ing to keep me on course and en­cour­age­ment from oth­ers,” mem­ber Anne Dwyer said.

Per­sonal trainer Ms Har­g­reaves said they had all worked ex­tremely hard, and for many it was a chal­lenge for them to break out of their com­fort zones.

Karyn Wastie said the gym could be in­tim­i­dat­ing with all the bulky ma­chines, and a fe­male trainer made all the dif­fer­ence.

“I strug­gled at the start. I was un­fit and didn’t want to come back. The sup­port they gave kept me go­ing,” Mrs Wastie said.

Obe­sity has be­come a grow­ing con­cern in re­gional ar­eas, and train­ers like Ms Har­g­reaves have wit­nessed first hand the life changes her team of fit women have made over the past two years.

“It’s about pro­vid­ing the right sup­port for each per­son, to give them the con­fi­dence to suc­ceed,”
