I have been training with Gemma now for over eight months. In this time not only have I lost cms and weight but most importantly I have gained some much more. Before I started training with Gemma I was always tired, never had any energy to do anything. I was always making up excuses why I couldn't do this or that. I have gained some much confidence, even more so walking into a clothes shops without feeling everyone is staring at me. My mind has become more clearer everyday and that's because I can do things. Gemma has taught me so much about nutrition. I love eating healthy and now that also reflects onto my family. We have became so much closer and more open minded to what's good for us. As a family we go on daily walks and just making healthier choices together.
I have really enjoyed my training with Gemma. She always gives me a big boost. I can't thank her enough. Like I said to Gemma she is stuck with me forever.
I am so not one to post a lot of photos of myself online and to be honest this is not an easy one to put up but I wanted to share this progress photo on this page to show the sort of results that Gemma has helped me achieve so far. The pic on the left was taken a few years ago and the pic on the right is from last week after just over a year of working my ass off (literally!). The last year has not always been easy and there have been a lot of highs and lows along the way but it is all worth it to be where I am today. I still have a long way to go to reach my final goal but I know I will get there working with Gemma and that keeps me motivated to get up and push myself every day. Every time I see a change in how my clothes fit or I can do an exercise during my PT session that I know I never would have been able to do a year ago I know it comes from giving it my all every single day and there really is no better feeling! I am so grateful to Gemma and am looking forward to seeing what I can achieve in the next year!! 😃😃
I highly recommend Gemma as a PT and this is my story.
After two decades of smoking and not exercising my health was less than satisfactory. I wanted to make a change and get into a good fitness habit so I decided to engage the services of a PT.
Although there is an abundance of PTs to choose from, I selected Gemma because she has tertiary education in the field and a Cert IV in fitness. In other words, I had total confidence in her abilities.
Another factor that was important for me was that Gemma is not a part-time PT like so many others. I needed someone that was committed and not just looking to top-up their income.
I also needed flexibility with training sessions as I work odd hours, 6 days per week. Gemma was able to devise a training schedule that worked around my needs, not hers.
I asked Gemma to help me pass the beep test in less than 6 weeks. Gemma took the time to get to know me, my lifestyle and eating habits before setting a training schedule.
From the first session, I knew that I had made the right decision. Gemma was hard but fair, always pushing me to achieve harder and harder targets. Exactly was I needed.
After 6 weeks of training (45 minutes session / two days per week), I was able to achieve 8.6 on the beep test and run 5kms in 30 minutes. Not bad for a 43 years old lol
In a nutshell, Gemma undid two decades of poor fitness habits in 6 weeks! Well done Gemma! thank you very much!
