My client is a superstar! In 1 month she has lost 12 lbs, 4.3% body fat and 9.25 total inches. We have been training twice a week and will be increasing to 3 times a week for the next month so she can gear up for her trip to Greece. She has been on point with her nutrition and gives me 100% every session which is clearly working based on these results. We have also introduced boxing in her workouts which she loves (who doesn’t love punching and kicking their trainer?!)

I have known Angela for quite some time.  She started as a friend but when she decided to make a commitment to her fitness routine she contacted me to assist.  I was very excited to help her but also a little nervous because when you’re already friends with someone there is added pressure.  Will my programs be successful?  Will she enjoy the workouts?  A lot of questions crossed my mind before starting our sessions but once we did I was reassured that this was a right fit.
Angela really wanted to focus on kickboxing for her training.  She had done some of this kind of training at her gym but wanted to add more to her workout routine.  Since I run MMA classes in our town she sought me out to have her training sessions centred around this style of training.  MMA or kickboxing really proves to be a sure way to lose weight because of the many components involved with the sport.  You get a crazy amount of toning because you’re actually hitting an object and it’s a great cardio workout.
Here is her story.

My weight loss journey started in February 2014. My youngest daughter was just over 2 years old and I was still carrying some baby weight. I weighed 156lbs and each week the number would climb. I felt tired and I didn’t feel good about myself. I decided to join a local gym. After going to the gym on-and-off for a year I lost a total of 8lbs. My problem was that after 5 months I stopped making progress and I had not yet achieved my goal.

Before

In mid-April 2015 I weighed 148lbs and was still struggling to lose the last 10 pounds. I contacted Alexis Talledes of Fizzique. We discussed my goals, my diet and my routine. I committed to 10 weeks of personal training with Alexis. Each week she brought something different to my workout; strength training, MMA and TRX. Within that 10 weeks I reached my goal weight of 137lbs and noticed a significant change in my physique. Alexis kept me focused on the task, and designed training that I actually enjoyed. Alexis’ enthusiasm and knowledge, as well as her ability to motivate allowed me to achieve goals that I was unable to on my own.

We completed 1 set of 10 sessions and are onto our next set of 10.  I ensured to take her measurements at this point and before and after photos and here is were she is today.

Our next focus is to strengthen her core so we have been utilizing the TRX system quite a bit in our sessions.  This piece of equipment is amazing because it’s so portable and really enhances every single exercise ensuring your body gets a killer workout.  We still incorporate the kickboxing combinations as it really drives her heart rate up and will keep her working towards her goals.

This is one client that walks the walks and talks the talk when it comes to her fitness goals.  Nothing will get in her way of her success.  This is someone that all women struggling with their goals should aspire to be like.
