At Boxfit we love to hear about our Geelong clients' progress and achievements in weight loss, strength and fitness.
It is said - "When the student is
ready: The teacher appears!" And so it was for me with Boxfit Geelong.
I hit 55 years old, so to keep
fit, I was doing Meditation daily, walking my dog for about an hour almost
every day and watching my diet. But something was missing. I could feel myself
slowly but surely putting on weight and I was huffing and puffing climbing
stairs! I noticed my tummy and legs weren't as firm as they used to be. Aggh! My sense of self and personal wellbeing
wasn't as content as it could be.
I also I felt like I was doing
everything for everyone else and doing very little for me. I was feeling lost. Well,
a few days later I saw an ad in the local paper for Boxfit Geelong. Off I went to the Group Training Night
- and I had a ball - Clint and Brad went out of their way to make me feel
welcome and safe. They guided me and encouraged me. I felt so unfit and
discouraged when I couldn't even run the length of the training hall - about 50
meters - argh!!! They supported me and told me not to worry - just to keep at
it! So, I did!
I decided to have Personal
Training - and what a wonderful, wonderful gift I have gave myself. I almost
felt like fainting when Clint suggested I get on the treadmill, but I did and I
huffed and puffed my through the 5 minutes or so of walking and jogging!
Followed by more fun with training than I had ever had before! As the weeks have
gone by, I have become stronger and fitter. Slowly, I have felt my sense of
self-worth improve; my body has become trimmer and firmer and my weight has come
into line again ... And it is fun to work out sharing a joke and a laugh. I
have tried to work out in gyms before - and nothing compares to training with
Clint and Brad at Boxfit Geelong.
And, the most amazing news of all is that I ran 5k's last
week. Yep 5k's. In January, Clint and Brad told me I would get to 5k's by the
end of the year and, with their encouragement and guidance, I did it in
October! I am heading towards my 57th Birthday and I am stepping
into the next phase of my life with a greater sense of personal dignity,
wellbeing, and health. I have enjoyed putting time aside for me and to focus me
and my physical health and wellbeing - with results!!
Joining Boxfit Geelong with Clint
and Brad is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. I am so grateful for
the way the boys support me, guide me, stir me and encourage me. Thank you!
Boxfit has changed my life. Brad and Clint's bounding enthusiasm and passion for what they do is an enormous motivator. They push you to your limit and then some! All the while having a jolly good laugh! Boxfit has been instrumental in taking me on a journey from being barely able to walk around the block, to now participating in 10km fun runs, and losing 48kgs along the way!! Their group training sessions are so much more motivating than a session at the gym, so I've achieved my results faster and have had a blast doing it. Crossfit has been the perfect way to help me lose my weight, achieve fitness and strength and tone the body at the same time. And the 'Boxfit-family' atmosphere gives you the confidence and support to allow you to feel that you can achieve anything. Thanks Brad and Clint, I owe you guys my life!!!
