A group of members at a local fitness club has collectively lost an amazing 23 stone.
Members of Slim & Fit Classes, run by local business woman Tracey Amis, have achieved fantastic results in overcoming personal challenges to each lose an average of two and a half stone in a remarkably short time.
Mother of two Rachel says, “I have always struggled with my weight. I began to put on weight as young child after my mum died, and through my teenage years I was never really happy with how I looked. As I got older my weight and sized fluctuated a lot. After the birth of my children I tried different ways to shift the excess weight but with no success.”
“I was terrified at first, but I soon realised that there was nothing to be afraid of. Tracey was lovely, and made me feel very welcome. After just a few weeks I started to attend more of her classes.
“Tracey offered me challenges and was always encouraging. She has been more than just an instructor, she has been a friend. I honestly believe when I got to my 3 stone mark she was just as happy for me as I was.
“Since losing weight I have set myself targets and goals. I have booked a holiday aboard this summer and for the first time in ages I am not dreading the summer. After the summer my 40th birthday looms and I am not going become fat and forty!”
Rachel’s story is one that is repeated, with each of the group having overcome life’s challenges.
Louise joined Tracey’s class with her mum June.
“After years of feeling unhappy and being overweight, my mum and I both felt the same – we felt we had ‘dieted’ for most of our lives and it got us so depressed. We decided to join Tracey’s classes after we’d seen details on-line. It was the best thing we ever did.
“Since losing weight my confidence has improved 100%. I feel that I can do anything. I am happier and feel just amazing every day. My health is so much better; I no longer get out of breath when walking and my asthma has gone!”
Tracey says, “These ladies are proof the you can achieve your goals; they are an inspiration to all women who struggle to manage their weight. I am so proud of them and am delighted to have been a part of their success.”
