Julia’s Journey

Feb 21, 2015 | Personal Training, She Lifts

Julia first came to me in early 2014. She wanted to lose weight, increase her body tone and improve her health and overall fitness. But, as she pointed out when we first started working together, she wasn’t a fan of exercise.

I work with a lot of people who say they don’t like to exercise, they get bored, tired or frustrated, and give up before they see real results. Working with a personal trainer is a great way to keep yourself inspired, because I don’t just run you through the same old exercises time and time again.

My approach is to find the way that works for you, and that’s exactly what I did for Julia. In fact, she commented on my friendly yet no nonsense, down to earth approach to her training.

To keep Julia interested and motivated, it was important to vary the routines we worked on. So I devised a combination of weight training, circuits and gym time, so that there was plenty of variety.

Julia joined my SHELifts classes, where I teach women how to safely and effectively start lifting weights. In no time, she was deadlifting with the best of them.

Of course, the outcome is the crucial bit when it comes to an exercise journey like Julia’s, so how did she do? Well, the pictures speak for themselves. You can see how amazing her transformation has been, taking her from a size 14/16 right down to 8/10! Just as importantly, her stamina and overall fitness has increased considerably, she feels younger, and her confidence has massively increased.

But enough from me, here?s what Julia has to say about her experience with Amrit Training and Therapy:

“I?ve been training with Amrit Theocharous on and off for the past 10 months. Physically my strength has greatly improved. My stamina has increased more than threefold and I get a real buzz from training. It most definitely increases my energy levels and keeps me happy and energised for the whole day. I was never one to exercise in the past but Amrit really makes it fun which means I don’t tire or get bored with it. So if you find exercise uninspiring but know that you really should look after your body then Amrit is who you need to speak to! Thanks Amrit for teaching me how to enjoy exercise again!?

Let's talk...

"I found Amrit to be thorough, clear and direct in her approach to personal training. She always pushed me forward towards my personal goals and gave me heaps of encouragement when I achieved them. Her deep tissue massages really helped to ease my muscle tightness and helped me refocus on the areas I needed to work on more."

She is an excellent motivator and teacher, always eager to find out what will work best for me. I can't recommend her highly enough. Thanks Amrit!"

"Amrit has helped me significantly with a few issues with my back, neck and shoulder. I go through intensive training periods and it is important for me to be fully functional. Amrit is very skilled and knowledgable, not only does she alleviate the pain but she also works with me in identifying how the problems are caused and how to prevent them. Highly recommended."

"I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for your 1-2-1 Personal Training over the last 4 months. As someone who was an exercise avoider, I surprised myself by enjoying strength training. I have lost 19inches in total and have a new found respect for my body and its abilities. I felt I was in such safe hands with you and I even have my own foam roller now. Thank you for your time, patience and wealth of knowledge in helping me transform my life."
