Nicky came to see me 12 weeks before her 50th birthday. Her goal was to lose some weight for her big party. I explained that I don’t do quick-fix transformations and that any approaches to training and diet would be based around a long-term philosophy of healthy eating and exercise, but we could definitely get some visible results in that time!
Nicky trained with me once a week and followed a programme of running and bodyweight exercises (squats, press ups, lunges, sit ups etc) at home. Nicky and I also worked together to also completely overhaul her diet. We moved her from a “diet” mentality to “health” mentality, so out went the Ryvita and Shape yoghurt and they were replaced by meat, dairy, wholegrains, fruit, veg and nuts.
The result was an 8lb reduction in weight, a dramatic reduction in body fat and a massive increase in strength, including not being able to do a single sit up on week 1, to doing 58 sit ups in three minutes on week 12.
As I always say, it’s not about how you look, it’s about how you feel! Check out Nicky’s thoughts on her fantastic progress.
