See real fitness results and inspiration weight loss
It’s #TransformationTuesday and today we have our member Jay, with an incredible fitness transformation. Jay previously weighed 22 stone and has seen his weight drop to an incredible 17 stone! We are so proud of him and all he has achieved.
Jay was kind enough to tell us a few words about his transformation story, and how fitness helped him improve his health and his life.
Body transformation camps: the key to successful weight loss
“I started attending body transformation camps at Xercise4Less at the end of 2018 after I saw holiday pictures of myself and it hit home how much weight I had gained.”
“My main downfall has always been ‘comfort’ eating, especially when stressed. I would eat chocolate, crisps and all the other usual suspects.”
Following this realisation, Jay sought help from a Personal Trainer to get his fitness journey started and give him the guidance to start losing the weight he wanted to.
“With the help of my PT’s and other members of the group, I was able to change my attitude to food by tracking my calories in the gym’s food app. I didn’t follow any fad diets, but simply stuck to a calorie deficit and was sensible with the amount of ‘treats’ I allowed myself in a week.”
“My biggest weight loss was 2 stone in one camp. I’ve also had camps where I lost nothing at all, because I let my routine slip again. You just have to pick yourself up and get back into the right frame of mind – don’t give up!”
Having a community spirit at the gym to get you through the tough times
Whilst losing weight was always the priority for Jay, he has also benefitted from the community spirit at gym brings, being part of a team ethos and an environment full of like-minded people in similar positions. This is something Jay felt was integral to his weight loss.
“Having a trained PT set out the exercises combined with the fun group atmosphere really helped me to continue attending the gym. I feel so much happier and healthier as a result, not to mention making friends for life!”
“Whatever your level of fitness or confidence, the camps are a great way to get started at the gym and I would recommend them to anyone.”
Well done, Jay!
