At the beginning of 2013 is when I really started my life – my new life! Up until then I had gone through some ups and downs, and had faced many challenges, but nothing compared to what i was about to face. Fitness had always been a big part of my life both personally and professionally. As a experienced personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I had the mind set that I knew it all… Boy I was wrong! I started working for Lisa teaching classes and training clients and right away I felt an instant connection to her. She made me feel so welcome and appreciated. In mid Febuary I suddenly decided that I wanted to compete in the upcoming Bodybuilding competition in the bikini category. Lisa fully supported me in my decision and took on the challenge if being my prep coach. When I started my training I was 150lbs with over 30% body fat. 13 weeks later I hit stage at around 110lbs and 15% body fat. My life, my body, my attitude completely changed.Last year I slipped a disk in my neck, quit my job and felt depressed. I was in constant pain, I couldn’t walk or do anything. I was going from doctor to doctor trying to find help, but I had found it – Lisa. She was there encouraging me through everything. She truly was my rock, my coach, my boss and my friend. I literally saw my body change before my eyes, and when I woke up on May 18 in Kelowna, scared, nervous and tired… I looked in the mirror and didn’t recognise the girl looking back. For the very first time in my life there was a strong, confident, happy girl in the mirror. I am now preparing for my second fitness competition and it all started with Lisa’s help and support.
Without The Body Zones help – Lisa, Cesar, Sue and Jansper. I would have never accomplished what I did and would not be the person I am today. These wonderful people helped me more then they will ever know and I am so thankful for their support. I feel like they are my family and I would be lost without them.
Thank you Lisa for changing my life and making me the best person I have ever been.
