I have always been overweight and have tried every diet out there. I would lose weight but pick it all up again and more added on top! I was the best definition of a yo-yo dieter ever. Fast forward to 2015, loads of fertility treatments that year, I finally gave birth in October 2016, now even bigger and heavier than ever before. I decided this is it, I am going to change and lost about 10kg but then when my daughter was barely 8 months old I discovered I was pregnant again, this time naturally and unplanned. There I went again, I picked up all my lost weight and more!

When my son was born my daughter was 17 months old, thus I had two babies to look after with a husband that works off-shore so I literally ran between the two of them. My daughter struggled with her health and was in and out of hospital and my son was allergic to all formula (which I only found out after 3 months) thus he cried uncontrollably. I was completely exhausted and sleep deprived and I developed a bad case of baby blues.

The weight started to drop off but I realised that it would all creep back again if I didn’t commit to an exercise and eating plan. Together with a dietician and a few more life changes I managed to lose 29kg but proper exercise was still lacking and that is when I saw a friend of mine checking into Hiit Fitness every morning on Facebook. She told me exactly what it is and that I would love it. Luthando contacted me and I signed up for the 6 weeks challenge in November 2018.

Once it was over I joined full time as I was completely addicted to my morning exercise and have managed to lose another 13kg since then.Ever since joining Hiit I have been in the best emotional state ever, nothing beats how good exercise makes you feel. My body has changed a lot, I am fitter, have gained muscle, am much stronger than ever before and have loads more confidence. I can now walk into a shop knowing that I will always find clothes that fit.

Hiit is results driven, fast paced, never the same and most definitely not boring. I have had a gym membership at Virgin Active as well as Curves and I did not enjoy it at all. I would make execuses not to go, where as now I find reasons to go to Hiit 5 times a week. I love the non-judgemental vibe and the coaches know each and everyone by name! They always show you how to do the exercises in the correct manner and encourage you to do your best.

I would definitely recommend Hiit Fitness as I am now the best version of me ever. Not only has my body changed but so has my outlook on life. I have also made loads of new like minded friends, bumped into a long lost friend from university and I also found a new hairdresser at Hiit. I have a new lease on life, I can run after and around with my kids without wanting to die half way.
