When I met Izzy I was 42 and not feeling good about myself. I didn’t fit my clothes and just felt generally uncomfortable. I am not the sort of person who is afraid of hard work but I just didn’t know where to start, so I started by joining a gym. My plan was to do a few classes a week and see how it goes. With my membership I got a 1 hour consult with a PT, enter Izzy.
I remember Izzy asking me what my goals were, I didn’t have any so I said, get fit and toned. But as time went on those goals changed. My pet hate was burpees I could only do 3 in a row and now I want to smash out 10. Then someone said, let’s do a fun run. I soon realised fun isn’t in my running vocabulary, more like how fast can I run it. I did 2x 4km runs last year getting better each time and then this year ran 12km for the first time in my life. I felt awesome and I credit Izzy for preparing me with the mental strength to do it. Then I started to see my body getting stronger and that became my focus.
I will continue to build my strength and losing weight just happens with making better food choices. Izzy has taught me a lot about what I am capable of. She is just the sort of person I connect with. She is tough, but fair. She takes no nonsense or excuses. But we have fun also. She shows empathy for her clients and their abilities. I don’t feel like making excuses anymore. It’s more about knowing what I have to do and getting it done. For me it also about showing my children that no matter what happens or how old you are, if you believe in yourself you can do anything. Thanks Izzy.
