I met Nancy over 3 years ago when I attended my first ever Body Pump class in my local gym. Since then I have been a regular at her BodyStep, BodyPump and BodyAttack classes, which are far from easy or boring!
I decided to ask Nancy for help with getting back to shape after giving birth to my son last autumn. In the past I managed to keep my weight under control by exercising multiple times in a week. This time round, the obvious lack of time prevented me from attending gym or even exercising at home. I decided that I need assistance in having more structured “back to pre-pregnancy fitness levels” so I opted for online PT due to childcare obligations and flexibility of the programme. I loved the structured approach to setting goals and weekly schedule that we followed for over 5 months of our cooperation. Nancy provided me with the exercise and stretch routine, which I could do at a suitable time. What is more important is that she convinced me to track my daily food intake, which I have to say was a challenge due to the lack of time that I was facing. We agreed a calorie limit that I had to stick to and again, I have to say it was not easy, especially during Christmas, holidays, family visits or days when my son was sick or was teething!
In the end we nearly got to where I wanted to be, but the weight loss was not the biggest achievement. I understood that you simply cannot out-exercise your diet, daily tracking taught me that I do eat heathy and balanced meals, but my snacks and desserts were out of control. It was incredible to see how many calories small items of food can add, and how the whole day’s outlook can change because if it. Nancy was always there for me if I needed a quick estimate of a restaurant meal or if I wanted some advice on food choice. She always had an answer ready for my “Why..” or “What if…” – her answers were always backed up by research and science which for person like me is very important. I could not fault Nancy for her commitment and motivation, at times I felt that she was carrying me on her back just pushing me through the difficult days. She is an incredible source of energy and motivation, and I really don’t know where she is getting it from. I would 100% recommend Nancy not only to people who feel like they need to lose a stone or two, but for those who were relatively fit like me but could not shed off the last few kgs.
