We are so proud of our inspirational clients. We have had almost 30 individuals participate in our 12 Week Biggest Loser Fat Loss Challenge. They have walked away with inspirational results and have gained so much out of our health competition. We would like to share with you some of these inspirational people.

Here we go!

CONGRATULATIONS to Kathy TausiliĀ or as we know her, Ted!!!

Ted has been outstanding throughout her 12 week journey and although she had very tight competition her dedication and belief in herself to reach her goal was unbeatable. She knows what she wants and she gets it!

Ted’s never say die attitude was contagious, Ra being her full time PT and myself training her once we both love how she comes, gets the work done, even when she doesn’t want to and pushes herself further every time and encourages others as well. Competitive and encouraging! Great qualities.

We think this girl was born an athlete. She’s becoming stronger, more powerful and fitter every week.

Ted attended 4 bootcamp sessions per week – Tuesday, Thursday at 6am, Friday at 6pm and Saturday at 9am. She is also very committed to any extra fitness we provide outside of the gym or the park. Ted is an incredibly valuable member to one of our Monday night Netball teams, she was an essential part of our mixed touch team (almost winning the comp for us!!) and she always made herself available to be there for our Thursday women’s touch team. During her sport she is again dedicated, committed and she knows what she wants!

Posting photos of her veggie filled meals, saying she was a bread addict at the start then saying she couldn’t handle it anymore towards the end. Her diet had the biggest turn around I’ve ever seen, and I know she will keep this up. Why? Because she loves what she’s eating!

Ted was away for 1 week of the comp as a maid of honor for her friend. She said she fell off the rails while away. What do you think she did when she got back?
She was happy she had a good time, she picked herself up and pushed on through. This is the secret guys! She’s mastered it! This is LIFE! We want to enjoy it right? And we want to be good to ourselves as well. Find that balance as she has. She HAS the winning attitude and we have no doubt she will achieve everything she wants to achieve in her life. It’s be an honor watching you transform Ted.

We are so proud of you!

Next, the runner up…….

Someone we have been incredibly impressed with. Leaving her excuses at home every session and absolutely loving everything we throw at her….even burpees! She’s my burpee sister………………….

Jenny Graham. Jenny I had to take 2 days to decide between you and Ted. You are both incredible inspirations.

Jenny has 5 children. The oldest is 15 and the youngest 4 months old. She started with me at fit mums. She told me she couldn’t do pushups….She performed a few painfully. NOW, she did 100 the other day at the park easily, perfect form! Her body shape is changing, she’s gained beautiful, strong muscle and she’s hooked on this lifestyle.
She’s become addicted to cooking and has been whipping up incredible sounding experiments ditching the flour and sugar and traditional way of baking. Her children and husband are obviously benefiting hugely from her life style change also. Jenny has since moved from Fit Mums to Ra’s Bootcamp and I still see her once a week also. She loves walking out that door at night and giving herself her gift – training!

Jenny’s results:

Down 3.5 kg in total mass
Down 11.4% in pure FAT! Crazy huh!
Gained 4 kg in pure lean beautiful muscle
Gained 6 kg in body water allowing her organs to function at an optimum rate.
Down 2 points in visceral fat.
Gained 19 years of life on her vital organs!

Lost of total of 27.5 cm with 8 cm off her ab’s, 9 cm off her hips, 5 cm off her waist.

Jenny is now onto her next stage. She wants to gain more muscle and become strong, strong, strong!

Jenny you will also be getting a prize next week.

Lisa Tumahai!

THIS beautiful lady could seriously load us up with excuses about why she just can’t commit to a health lifestyle.

Sharon has serious dedication! She is focused and she has a lot of power behind that focus. She can see what she wants.

She is constantly learning more and more about herself and understands that this journey is about discovery. It’s about listening to your heart, removing the stuff that doesn’t serve you and allowing lots of what does.
