Personal Training – Rachel’s Story

Learn how I helped Rachel

I can only say thank you for the expert care and support which has changed me from a very overweight despondent individual to a confident, active person enjoying the new lifestyle this programme has given me!

Before taking the life changing steps of deciding to try and lose my excess weight, I felt for a very long time that the overweight person I had become was the only way I could be…this was ‘me’.

It was a state that I had grown used to and whilst I didn’t like to look at myself in the mirror, I found it easy to cover up with outsize clothes as there is plenty of choice for ‘the larger woman’ . I was busy with work and family and was able to mostly ignore what was going on in my body.

Some changes in my working life occurred which gave me more time to myself and I somehow began to be more aware of the weight I was carrying, feeling tired and lacking in energy.

Seeing myself in photos made me feel very despondent but more importantly, I began to worry about the state of my health at this stage in my life. I decided that something had to be done about it, both for my overall health and wellbeing.

I had tried in the past to reduce what I ate in order to lose weight, ate diet foods and went to various slimming clubs.

No matter how determined I was, after a couple of weeks, I always gave in and was soon back to my old ways. It was very demoralising because every time I failed, I seemed to slide further into more weight gain.

Personal Training - Real Results From Our Clients - The Arete Academy

So I was very upset with myself when I started the Arete programme. However, I felt from the outset that there was genuine support for me as a person. My eating regime was analysed and I was given a very clear picture of the foods and the quantities I should be eating to set me on the road to losing my excess weight.

I benefited so much knowing that I was managed and monitored in an extremely professional manner with food and exercise.

This also in a way made me feel accountable to Arete because I was given so much support I didn’t want to let myself or anyone there down.

Before this there was only me trying to do my own thing, but now I felt truly important to Arete.

When I began to see the results of the programme, my self esteem increased and before long it became automatic to choose the right things to eat on a daily basis.

I was delighted to find that I was looking for clothes 3 sizes smaller* and found myself feeling healthy and energetic for the first time in years!

My self image improved and my confidence in managing my new lifestyle grew with the tools Arete had given me from the beginning. Arete came when I was at my lowest ebb and I can only say thank you for the expert care and support which has changed me from a very overweight despondent individual to a confident, active person enjoying the new lifestyle this programme has given me!
