I’d like to introduce you all to our latest success story this time from our previous Transformation’s ‘Better Half’ Miss Lauren Sturgeon.
Both Mr & Mrs Sturgeon started their Transformation Programs on the basis of getting that beach bod ready for the family holiday.
Her results were AWESOME and we are all very proud of watching her become much more confident in herself through getting the results she wanted and deserved.
Check out Lauren’s story below…
“I started with the PT Studio in March 2017 after 4 years of not looking after myself. Having a baby in 2013 really changed my priorities and I put everyone else before myself meaning I wasn’t eating properly and not exercising at all. During the 4 years I ballooned in weight, 4 stone heavier and 2/3 dress sizes bigger but my biggest downfall during this time was my loss of confidence.
My husband (who was already in pretty decent shape) signed up to a plan with The PT Studio for a super holiday bod and that’s when I thought it was time to grab the bull by the horns and do something for myself for a change (well if he could do it why couldn’t I??). Plus, I didn’t want to look like a beached whale next to him on our holidays! So I signed up for a 6 week transformation.
I worked with both Ali and Marie, both different training styles but equally as rewarding and dare I say fun? My sessions were tailored to my ability and I was pushed at every workout. I enjoyed it so much that I signed up to another programme to take me right up to my holidays. Seeing the difference in my ability from the start to now is phenomenal and all that is down to their expertise/knowledge, dedication and belief in me when I didn’t believe in myself.
I used to dread going to the gym but now I look forward to it, I always get some banter from the staff, I can have moan if I want but I am still pushed to work hard and I always come out the gym feeling great.
During my 16 weeks with the PT Studio I have gone from a size 14/16 down to a 10 and I’ve lost 2 stone and 13 lbs (18.6kg) weight and 38 inches (96.5cm) in total! I am astounded.
But most of all, I have gained in confidence and self-esteem, I am a much happier person, my work/home/life balance has improved as I am actually making better use of my time and I feel (along with my husband) are inspiring our daughter to live a healthy, happy lifestyle and to enjoy exercising at a young age.
I am now going on holiday holding my head high, not hiding behind baggy clothes or a swimsuit but wearing my bikini with pride!! I might have the actual human version of the hulk on my arm but I ain’t no beached whale anymore and that’s something I am so proud of!
For all my programme is finished, staff at The PT Studio are already supporting me to maintain my weight loss and I’ve not just been left to get on with it now. I know they are there to answer questions, help with training and to continue to support me on my journey.
Personal training worked for me, it was the kick start I needed to get back into exercising but also helped show me how to use the weights machines etc. Now I feel confident enough to walk into the gym on my own knowing that I am not going to look like a complete tube doing the totally wrong thing with a piece of equipment!
If you are thinking about it then it is definitely, 100% worth the money and the investment in yourself. What’s a bit of money if you don’t have your health and happiness?
I’ve not only completely changed my body, my lifestyle and gained confidence but I’ve made friends too. So if you are nervous about going in to the PT Studio, don’t be, you are made to feel so welcome and like part of a team from day one. I can’t wait to continue my journey with them.
PT STUDIO, you ROCK!!!!”
From all of us at The PT Studio, well done to Lauren!
Now enjoy that holiday. You have well and truly earned every minute of it. You have both done us incredibly proud. #couplegoals #fitnessmrandmrs #traintogetherstrongtogether
