Michael commenced coaching and personal training with me in around August 2017. He aspired to drop some kg’s and was finding small tasks he previously achieved with ease, difficult.
As it was so close to the beginning of a new Challenge term, I recommended that this was a great opportunity for him to move forward. It would give him added value for his money and the support of a group environment.
As I suspected, Michael thrived in the 11 weeks of Term four with the group. He came out with awesome results, winning the final term of the I got this Challenge for 2017.
Michael was consistent in his training and made great strides by removing himself from temptation where and when he could.
Michael answered some questions for me, to help inspire others who can relate to Michael to take action towards a healthier 2018.

Q. What are your three biggest challenges right now?

She is non-judgemental, but with honesty and compassion for your best interests.
Michael was the first male winner of the ‘I got this’ Challenge at Bicentennial Park, Woody Point. It’s great to see more men training outdoors and more and more couples making an appearance also. I hope Michael’s win encourages more men to brave my Challenges and Bootcamps.
