Before joining Prime Mover I had been signed up to a local gym and had an attendance rate of 2-3 times a month (if I was lucky)! I found the classes monotonous and although I got support when I first joined, I was then totally on my own. I found myself missing out exercises I didn’t like and cheating on the machines – God forbid if I broke too much of a sweat! I also suffered from Rosacea and constant stomach pains, as well as bloating.
Then I Become A ‘Mover’
I originally joined Prime Mover as a member back in 2010. I had just returned from holiday feeling awful after a week full of processed foods and too many drinks. I needed something new to try. My weight had always been up and down from the age of 13. I had tried diet pills, fat burners, faddy diets and nothing seemed to be long lasting. I did lose 2.5 stone on Weight Watchers through obsessive weighing and measuring but as soon as I stopped sticking to the points I was allowed, I put all the weight back on!
I had spotted Prime Mover on Facebook and thought I would give it a go. I turned up nice and early and observed the class before mine. I was petrified!!! It looked pretty hardcore and a lot more intense than anything I had done before. But after I’d got through my first class, I was hooked!
You Can’t Out Train A Bad Diet
After a particularly indulgent Christmas, I knew it was time to look at what I was eating and sort my nutrition out. So I went for it 100%. I bought the detox kit, stuck to the eating guidelines and I could not believe the results. I still got to eat food I enjoyed, had more energy and was not tempted by things I had eaten before (pasta, bread, ready meals)! My weight went down and everyone was noticing. I was so grateful for the support of the team at Prime Mover, especially Kelly and Paul, I wanted to pass on what I had learnt to others.
With the help of Emily at FitUK, I successfully passed my Fitness Instructor Level 2 and went on to qualify as a personal trainer at Level 3. I now work at Prime Mover training all our lovely Movers, and I have also recently started my Diploma in Nutritional Healing.
Prime Mover has changed my outlook on so many things. It has really changed the course of my life and I will be forever grateful for the support and encouragement of the team there.
