Training goals: Lose weight, improve fitness level and feel better.
Results: 3% body fat reduction and 8kg weight loss. Didn’t believe she could lose so much weight!
Before she started training with me, Annie had never used a personal trainer or even joined a gym, in fact her last experience of fitness training was school PE … yes, we had some work to do!
Having found me on Google, she was looking to lose some weight, improve her fitness level and simply to feel better. At her first session in January 2012, we agreed some goals:
- Achieve as much as possible in 12 weeks
- Work around her busy schedule and time commitments
The training programme I chose was my 12 week fat loss programme, intense weight and circuit training, combined with sprint training and my diet (buy a copy of my diet plan here). We trained one to one at the gym. I changed the programme every 4 weeks or so, as her body adapted to the programme. Some routines changed weekly.
The first few weeks were tough, but the body adapts quickly – she noticed a difference within 2 weeks – fantastic. By the end of the training she had exceeded her original goals, she didn’t believe she could lose so much weight! A loss of 3% body fat over the 12 weeks is a great result.
It was great training with Annie, but I have to say one thing – she is the most uncoordinated person I’ve trained with – she could bounce a ball and miss the floor!!
Well done Annie, keep it up.
