So I started Combat fit to bring something new to my fitness routine, I’d hit a point where I wasn’t progressing anymore, and I was lacking motivation. Since joining Combat Fit I have lost 1st 9lbs in 18months. The biggest difference is probably my shape in the last 3 months from that photo and I’ve dropped a dress size in the last year. I have also made small changes to my diet. I’ve found a fitness routine and diet that I can stick too instead of something that I can only keep up with for a few months. It’s now all part of everyday life and I actually enjoy it now and feel better in myself.
I am 100% more motivated now. I can now train on my own as I’m more educated on my workouts from classes and I don’t get bored as I’m learning more things all the time. Just when I think I’ve mastered something like a lunge a new advanced move is thrown in the mix and it gives me something new to practice on my own. I’m focused on getting it right rather than rushing through something because I’ve now learnt more about my form. I now know how important it is to work the right muscles and how not to injure myself.
My future goals are to carry on toning, especially my arms, as I feel like that’s my problem area. Most importantly, get wedding dress ready for 2021!!!
Since joining combat fit I’ve gained muscle mass and lost fat which is great. But my biggest gain has been knowledge. I now know to eat more protein and think more about wholegrain foods and good fats and just by watching what I put in my mouth and my diet has changed loads. But I also make sure I don’t starve my body of the fuel it needs to grow and repair.
I now know how to work out the most efficient way that I can around my schedule. I’ve managed to achieve my fitness goals just by regularly attending combat fit classes and changing my diet with the knowledge I have gained. I try to also carve out time for myself in the day to sit and stretch to gain greater flexibility on my key joints, so I work a larger range of muscles and movements in the gym has also been valuable.
I have better knowledge of gym equipment and movements and how to get the best out of each exercise, and the motivation to keep achieving my goals knowing that there is someone there keeping an eye on you. I’d like to be stronger in a specific range of movements, focusing around Calisthenics movements as my end goals. I’d like better fitness for running with the aim to possibly run a marathon in 2020 and maybe even and iron man in 2021, but that’s a secondary goal right now. Strength and flexibility work is my focus and in the words of Ross Edgely, “General life preparedness”.
I attend x2 classes a week and feel I’ve stuck with it because it’s fun, challenging and different every week and everyone at class is so friendly.
I have achieved plenty of personal goals, but there is still more I would like to achieve. My future goals for 2020 is to lose more weight, improve fitness and maybe achieve a proper burpee at some point!
I heard excellent reports about Combat Fit and saw the great results that people were getting by attending the classes. I have achieved my goals by attending classes consistently, and I have been using a fitness app recommended by Combat Fit which is excellent!
I feel healthier and much fitter since doing the classes. I was very self conscious before but my body has now transformed, losing inches everywhere and dropping two dress sizes😊 which is fab.
My future goals are to continue with the classes, to exercise, lose weight and maintain my fitness. I continue to go to Combat Fit as the classes are unique …every class is different, working on different parts of your body with great results.
I started CF in March 2019 in attempt to try and stop the yo yo dieting that I always fall into when trying to lose weight. When it came to eating correctly and keeping to a fitness routine, motivation was my downfall and I couldn’t run for 2 minutes without needing oxygen 🤭 But with the kickstart from Combat Fit and running 2/3 times a week, I can now run 5k without stopping. Also losing almost a stone has made me feel fitter and more confident. The classes never get boring and is full of lovely members! It’s nice to find a fitness class that I can fit into my lifestyle as I’m a mum of three girls and I work full time.
With help and advice from the instructor at class, I can certainly say losing weight is easier to understand. Wearing my Fitbit and knowing the work needed to burn off that chocolate or crisps really works for me! I know every week it’s doing what it should be doing by the pure ache!! 💪
I now want to continue to get stronger and one day, be able to do multiple full press ups.
After having 1 year off from exercise and having a baby I wanted to get myself back into shape and improve my fitness, so decided to start Combat Fit. In 6 weeks I have managed to lose 12lbs in weight; achieving my goals through group classes, 1:1 sessions and also a home workout plan written by Dean. It’s not easy getting up at 6:30am on a Sunday morning to do a home workout, but with the motivation and determination I have got now I know that anything is achievable. Combat Fit has changed my life giving me a new level of fitness, along with a new routine and helped build my self-confidence. My Future goals are to drop some more weight and to continue to improve my fitness in the run up to my wedding so I can be in the best shape possible.”
I joined Combat Fit after having my children. My aim was to tone up and to lose some baby weight ready for my wedding. In the time I’ve been at Combat Fit my fitness levels have improved, I’ve had fun, toned up and lost 2 stone 8lbs! Going from a size 14 to a size 10! My energy levels have improved and my confidence has grown. Everyone is so supportive of each other and makes all the hard work fun and enjoyable. I want to continue to now work on my toning concentrating on my core.”
