“Richard, your sessions and teachings of how the body works has completely transformed my mentality, confidence and self esteem.”Heema, Surrey
Heema came to me for Personal Training at the private Epsom studio with goals of toning up, looking better and feeling energised.
This is a perfect example of a situation where weight loss alone does not tell the whole story.
Weight loss – 2.7kg
Body fat loss – 3.2%
Waist reduction – 7.5cm
Lean tissue gain – 0.77kg
As you can see from the following pictures, Heema’s transformation is not told by numbers alone.
Most prominent is the back shot where most of her body fat and weight loss occurred.
As you can see she has succeeded in her goals!
The Personal Training sessions were one hour in duration and took place twice per week. No other training took place on her off days.
We focused primarily on strength training and Kickboxing with a smattering of “cardio”.
The diet was kept very simple with a calorie limit and a protein intake target.
Simple wins the day as does long term compliance.
A few words from the body transformation trainee herself:
I begun my personal training when I was at my lowest ebb. Over-indulging, self-pity and channel-surfing were my daily tasks! I had always been relatively fit and healthy, ate well-balanced meals and maintained a healthy body type. I escaped from ‘prison,’ broke free and ‘Colonel Sanders’ became my best friend hence the grotesque triple back fat roll ‘before’ picture!
He observed my strengths, weaknesses and pleasure elements (going home time!). Strengths being boxing, deadlifts and more boxing! Weaknesses being cardio and a penchant to moan at every opportunity! So he capitalised on what I enjoyed, ensured he captured elements into our sessions to keep each one varied and exciting! The hour sessions flew by, especially when I was busy punching the s*** out of the punching pad, which resulted in sore shoulders; Williams’, not mine!
When we discussed my personal training goals, all I asked for was to tone up, be less ‘jiggly’ and feel better about myself. The aim of the sessions was to motivate me to return to my ‘healthy’ ways. But boy did I get that and more…my posture has improved tenfold, I have no neck aches and I no longer possess a jelly belly! Yes I have lost body fat and am more toned, but what has been the biggest achievement through Williams’ training, is regaining my life and having that confidence again to live my life. Not only did Williams train me to get fitter, but he also helped me get back ‘Me!’
Hams fitness has been life changing. The most positive and life-altering experience I have ever had! Williams always ensured I understood what and why I was doing an exercise so that I had the knowledge to venture out and experiment by myself! A true motivational leader that knows his stuff! Kudos for recognising which body parts I needed to target, and double kudos for managing to motivate me.
