My wife shared a few testimonials from the HIIT Facebook page and I was intrigued about the product and offering. I also jumped on the page and saw the 6-week challenge but thought to myself that there has to be a catch so I never acted on my interest. A few weeks later, coincidently my 5 year old son asked me, “Daddy, why is your belly sooo big?” I was rather embarrassed and I knew that the usual, “life got in the way”,“ I am too busy to go to gym”, “ there is no time to train” excuses were not going to fly.
I simply told him the truth in a way that a 5 year old could understand, which was “Son, Daddy does not do any exercise and I eat too much chips, chocolates and ice cream” but “I need your help to remind Daddy not to eat those things when you see me having them”.
He agreed and boy did he watch me like a hawk, consistently reminding me that I was not allowed those unhealthy snacks and food. I then made the decision to come in and make enquiries with Clayton. I set up my trial session and took the plunge. The first session was tough. I was sore for an entire week but knew that this pain was due to being inactive for a long period of time. As the pain subsided, I decided to commit to a 12-week programme as I knew that my goal was going to take longer than 6 weeks.
I feel great, I have a sense of achievement, I look in the mirror every day and feel good from the inside. I have started wearing clothes from that “pile or section” you put at the back of your cupboard when they no longer fit, but you keep them for that one day when I lose weight, I am there right now. I see the physical transformation in my body. I feel stronger, I am not out of breath as I used to be after climbing a flight of stairs. I opt to take the stairs instead of elevators or escalators if the choice is available. The best compliment I have gotten thus far is from my 5 year old superstar son who said “Dad, your exercise is working good cos you getting un-fat”😊.
I have dropped 2 shirt sizes and 2 pants sizes in my short time at HIIT. I have waited long for this opportunity to go to the shops and chose what I want to wear instead of buying the item that fits.
In a world where everyone one of us looks for efficiencies to drive productivity, the programme offered by HIIT Fitness speaks directly to this concept in that I need to put in 30 minutes a day and make healthy eating choices to get the desired results. The Coaches genuinely care, they care for you, your health, your goals and the community with the various social responsibility activities they participate in.
They bring high energy and passion to every training session. They have never repeated a training programme in my last 3 months which makes it really interesting. On my way to HIIT I ponder, what’s in store for me today? Their expertise in fitness and nutrition is communicated in layman terms. Also, their watches always tend to make 30seconds seem like 2 minutes… Fellow HIIT members will understand this.
I have been recommending HIIT after 2 weeks of joining not only because of the results seen; but also because of the family like environment that exists at HIIT. The friendly faces are very welcoming; the members cheer you on and supports you all the way; during my experiences this really pushed my confidence and assisted in reaching the goals set for myself. The Coaches walk your journey with you every step of the way and that is invaluable to me.
