Mark Albert Testimonial “So far I’ve lost 7kgs, and trimmed 9cms from my waist, as well as adding more upper body definition.  And I get compliments from the wife now which is a welcome change!”

I’d done an outdoor bootcamp and a few boxing classes with John a few years ago, but had fallen out of the habit of regular exercise due to pressures of work, family, sitting on the couch watching TV etc.  I was still playing football most weekends during the winter but becoming increasingly injury prone and spending a small fortune at the chiro / physio / acupuncturist.

After badly tearing my groin for the second time in 12 months playing football in July last year, I resolved to start getting properly fit again, once the technicolour bruising and soreness had dissipated.  While recovering from the injury I settled into a late evening beer and crisps (Red Rock – Sea Salt) diet which left me bloated and lacking in energy.

Last September the whole family went to Noosa to celebrate my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary, which was fabulous, except for my lovely wife’s gentle ribbing about “how much more of me there was to cuddle” these days.  One of these comments happened to coincide with receiving an email from John inviting me to sign up for the Fat loss bootcamp starting the following week.

So a combination of self-motivation, gentle teasing and a very well-timed email from John conspired to make me “bite the bullet”. Apart from the few weeks when John selfishly went back to his homeland for Christmas, I’ve been attending the Fat loss group training sessions since October 2011 – at first twice a week, and since the start of 2012, three times a week.

In the first 4 weeks I dropped 4kg which would probably indicate just how many beers and crisps I had got through in the preceding months!  So very early being able to see the results physically was highly enjoyable – and it was achieved through a combination of the training sessions and adopting a much healthier approach to my eating habits (which I’ve managed to persevere with mostly ever since). The variety in the training sessions is exceptional, meaning no 2 workouts are ever the same, and because of the short duration of each exercise, it means you can cope with even the ones that you hate!

Since Christmas we’ve been doing boxing for the middle of the 3 sessions, which is a great work out and a very satisfying way to start the day.  I always find that an hour passes very quickly, even though I’m usually knackered at the end of it.. The training sessions are fantastic for those people like me who find it difficult to motivate themselves to do exercise on their own. 

One of the reasons I’m still playing football is the camaraderie enjoyed amongst my team, and it’s the same for the FF training sessions.  A great group of positive people who encourage each other to achieve the best results. Unlike other group workouts I’ve tried previously where the trainer drags the whole group along the through the same exercises, the Human Design Fat loss training session small group enables John to pay attention to everyone individually – which is great if like me your knees are shot and they refuse to perform a particular exercise – enabling you to substitute a painful exercise for one that you are able to do.

Like most of us I’m busy so I find that unless I build something into my routine regularly, then I don’t do it.  By signing up and getting into the habit of attending the training sessions 3 times per week, those training sessions have become an integral part of what I do – which means it’s not hard to get up and get out of the house to go every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning.

Overall I feel much better in myself on a day to day basis – I’m eating very healthily at least 4 days a week and probably about 70% healthily on the remaining days (so still finding room for the odd beer or small bag of crisps).  Reduced alcohol intake and minimal processed food has resolved the stomach bloating that was prevalent previously and I’m enjoying those healthier snacks much more than previously. Physically I feel much stronger.  For example I can now do at least 25 full press-ups as opposed to about 5 when I started; and I’m bench pressing about double what I was able to do at the beginning.

Stamina wise, I’m noticing the benefits of the training and weight loss on the football pitch, feeling stronger, better balanced and more able to last a full game. Additionally, the niggling back pain I’ve suffered from in the last few years has all but dissipated meaning far fewer visits to those health practitioners I referred to earlier. Just wish I’d started training properly a few years earlier. So far I’ve lost 7kgs, and trimmed 9cms from my waist, as well as adding more upper body definition.  And I get compliments from the wife now which is a welcome change!

“In Just 12 weeks I felt fitter and slimmer than I had done in 10 years.”

I have been a member of a gym for over a decade and never seemed to be getting anywhere even though I thought I was doing all the right things. Seeing my friends rapidly losing weight whilst training with John and wanting to lose my own ever-expanding belly, I realised that I needed to attend and educate myself in what real training is all about.

Fat Loss Bootcamp provided me with a structure for both training and diet that I have been lacking. The food list didn’t provide a fad/impossible to maintain diet, but a realistic lifestyle change that I hope to carry on and the group classes and banter help motivate you to try that little bit harder.

John is a passionate and knowledgeable trainer that takes great satisfaction from seeing you get results. I lost 7.2kgs in 12 weeks and over 9cms off my waistline.  Having never ever put myself through any type of group class I was slightly apprehensive that I might embarrass myself or hold other people up. This is not the case as John guides you through your first few sessions and you soon feel to be an expert and find yourself helping other newbies.

At the end of the 12 weeks I felt fitter and slimmer than I had done in 10 years and have already signed up and commenced John’s classes again in 2012.

‘It is a great feeling to walk into a shop and buy all those clothes I could not wear before’

   HD MAIN TILE 660px BEFOREAFTER Rachel ‘It is a great feeling to walk into a shop and buy all those clothes I could not wear before’

Over the course of one year I lost 25.2kg’s and over 63cm of body fat from my body. I have dropped 3 dress sizes and I love clothes so it is a great feeling to walk into a shop and buy all those clothes I could not wear before.

I started Personal Training with John in Nov 2011 as I had a few work colleagues who did his fat loss group training classes and worked with him on a one to one basis and they seemed to be getting great results and enjoying it.

I had already lost 20kg’s but I had plateau’d for 3 months and needed some motivation and direction to help me get to my overall goal of losing another 25kg’s.

Having never worked with a personal trainer before I was a little intimidated but John made me feel really comfortable right from the very start and we put together a long term plan to help me reach my goals.

I was doing ‘lite n easy’ which helped me get to a certain point but we overhauled my diet to include more lean sources of protein, less starchy carbohydrates and a lot more fruit and vegetables. I really wanted to learn how to prepare my own food and eat stuff that I made and of course this is something I would then be able to do in the long term. We started weight training which helped massively in toning my arms and legs. I walk home from work every night so John added in some interval training on my way home which helped me to get so much fitter and burn off extra calories.

Over the course of one year I lost 25.2kg’s and over 63cm of body fat from my body. I have dropped 3 dress sizes and I love clothes so it is a great feeling to walk into a shop and buy all those clothes I could not wear before. This was the icing on the cake.

I feel so much better about my body and more confident with myself and I love the training sessions. I feel fitter and stronger than ever and I am a lot more confident about stepping into a gym and exercising. John helped me to adapt my program to suit my lifestyle and work in with the schedule I had which can get really busy.
