After moving to Sydney I signed up to a local gym. My attendance started to flag as I got bored with the repetition of the gym machines and a lack of results.
I was making bad food choices and slowly started to pile on the weight. After browsing the internet I found the Dangerously Fit' boot camp site and signed up for the fantastic 2 week trial offer.
I was incredibly nervous about finding the groups and how fit everyone would be. To my relief I found a real range of fitness abilities in the different groups, with exercises challenging to everyone.
The classes were so friendly and the exercises different every time so there was no chance to get bored!
For the first few weeks everything hurt (in a good way!) but the pain eased off and I found that I missed the exercise when I didn't go! I even enjoy getting up early to exercise as the sun rises, leaving me full of energy for the day ahead (something I wouldn't have believed possible a few months ago!).
The trainers are fantastic- they really enjoy what they do and want people to get the most out of their classes. Jesse helped me push myself beyond what I thought I was capable of, and gave me support and encouragement when I hit a plateau' where I would previously have given up.
After losing 15kg, I'm back to my previous weight and look even better because my body is toned.
My fitness has improved and I'm stronger than ever before-I managed to break the Dangerously Fit plank hold' record thanks to the encouragement of my fellow boot-campers! Along with a teammate I met through Dangerously Fit (and 2 other friends) I completed the Oxfam 100K trailwalker in less than 24 hours (and was even back at boot camp on the Monday!) I can't wait for the next challenge!
