I first started training with Evolve Fitness in June 2014. I’d recently lost a stone and realised that I was smaller but wasn’t any more toned.
Evolve introduced me to weight, resistance and compound training. I also started running. They gave me a nutrition plan and told me that I had to start eating much more. At first I thought the weights (and extra food) would make me bulky, but they actually had the opposite effect and made me much more lean and toned. We started to set targets for losing body fat and I actually put on a couple of pounds of muscle.
In one of my first training sessions I had to lift two 4kg dumbbells above my head. I couldn’t. I can now do the same exercise with 16kg. My maximum dead lift is 100kg and I can also bench press 40kg. When I first started I couldn’t even bench press the bar with no weights on!
Since starting my fitness journey with Evolve I feel like a different person. I can do pull-ups and dips. I can do press ups. I have completed numerous 5km and 10km races, and 2 half marathons amongst other challenges.
I’m now stronger, happier and healthier. Thank you Evolve Fitness. I really appreciate everything you have done for me.
