Scott was a last-minute replacement for someone who dropped out just a week before the start of Transformation Group 3. Well done Scott for stepping up and thank goodness we managed to squeeze you in! You’ve had an amazing transformation and were a pleasure to work with.
Here’s Scott’s story:
Weight lost: a huge 1st 2lbs!
Inches lost: Waist – 2 inches; Hips – 3 inches; Chest – 4 inches.
Before the Transformation course I led a very inactive lifestyle, and my diet was poor to say the least. My job involves me sitting in front of a laptop for hours on end as well as spending a lot of time travelling between airports, hotels and conferences.
I knew this type of lifestyle was bad for me and I wanted to change, but previous efforts to join the gym always fizzled out after a few weeks. I had no real training plan and just couldn’t muster up the motivation to go and train on my own. This meant I invariably ended up paying for a gym membership that I never used.
I heard about the Transformation course from a friend who joined Southern Legion as a member last year. I’d been amazed at the transformation in her health and fitness levels since she started training with Ray so I spoke to her to understand a bit more about it and what’s involved. She was so enthusiastic that I decided to give the Transformation course a go with the goal of losing some weight and also getting fitter and stronger.
I started the course on 8th May and now, six weeks later, my lifestyle has completely changed! I’ve gained so much: I feel a million times better mentally and I wake up feeling fresh and ready for the day, not tired and sluggish like I used to.
I’m now active on a daily basis and the changes in my physical appearance are unbelievable. You can see from the pictures that I’ve cut a lot of body fat and am much trimmer. Ray’s nutrition plan has taught me a lot about how to eat and my diet is now completely different. Tracking my daily progress through the My Fitness Pal app has really helped and I feel like I can easily maintain this diet.
But by far the part I’ve enjoyed the most about this programme is becoming part of the T3 team. The 12 people on this course, along with Ray, completely made it for me. Each and every one of us supported each other throughout the whole thing, helping each other get through the really tough sessions when we wanted to give up. I personally have made some great friends from the course.
That’s the no.1 reason why I’ve succeeded at this programme and actually achieved my goals: it’s nothing like a normal gym membership. It’s a team environment and you build such a strong bond, sharing things and talking over group chat when you’re not training. You look forward to seeing the team at training and you don’t want to let each other down, which is what makes you push on even when you could easily give up.
The majority of my group have now signed up to the Transition course so that’s another 6 weeks team training before we join the gym. For me it’s part of my weekly routine now and I can’t wait to keep training with Ray and the team and see how much further I can improve my strength and fitness.
Thank you Ray and everyone at Southern Legion!
