Finding fitness through adversity
Many people find ways to discover fitness, but for Xercise4Less Chesterfield member Laura, it came through a period of great difficulty. She gave us her story on how she was able to transform her life, finding comfort in the gym.
“I was in a dark place. I felt so unhealthy and wanted to be a healthy, fit mum for my children. I physically couldn’t do what I wanted to do with my kids and knew this was my last chance. I started a nutritional programme which helped with my weight loss, but I was still physically unfit.”
Seeing results and gaining positive energy
It is important to see results when embarking on a fitness journey, especially one surrounding weight loss and fat burning. However, it is also important not to be engrossed in results, and not taking them too literally. Everyone develops at their own rate, and some naturally lose weight quicker than others.
“Seeing the weight start to come off made me feel able to give the gym a go and it has changed my life. Exercise is a big part of my life now and I couldn’t ever imagine not being as active as I am.”
“I go to Xercise4Less Chesterfield and have been going since the day it opened. I attend classes and spin class is my favourite. I also use workout plans on the X4L app. I slowly but surely noticed results in my body.”
“Since the first photo three years ago, I have lost 8 stone!”
Continuing a fitness journey
For Laura, she is incredibly proud of what she has achieved to date but is looking to further develop her fitness and improve upon her results. This has given her the confidence boost needed to refocus, setting new goals and making fitness an integral part of her life.
“Going forward, I want to start running more and build on my current physique. I like what I’m seeing, and I want more! I can’t fault the staff at X4L. Right from the staff at the front to the PT’s. they are always eager to help and answer my questions.”
Incredible results, Laura!
