The last three years have been a huge challenge for me both personally and professionally. At the age of fifty, I lost my business, my home and my self respect. My health suffered, my cholesterol levels rocketed and I felt constantly physically and mentally exhausted.
My body fat percentage worked out at a dangerous 36.7% which took me hugely by surprise but my apple shape has me constantly struggling with belly fat which I conveniently put down to hormones and genetics. Short of starving myself, the belly remained.
Now aged 54, I realised something had to change, if I was going to restore my health and self respect then that something or someone was me. I also realized no one was going to do it for me. I couldn't afford a gym membership anymore, so I dusted off a pair of old dumbbells, brought out my speed jump rope, downloaded the Gymboss app and sat down to record my weight and measurements and organize my MAX Workouts 90 day challenge.
It has been a challenging but enjoyable journey and I have learned a lot. Shin is an excellent mentor, his knowledge and expertise in his field foster trust and respect and his ability to put this forward to his students in a simple and easily understood way is a real skill. I look forward to receiving his emails which always seem to arrive at the right time with the right subject matter just when you might be flagging a bit and need that boost! I did fall off the wagon a couple of times and didn't always keep to the diet, but I got right back on and kept going.
I still have a way to go but my body fat percentage is now down to 26%, my cholesterol levels have dropped and that all happened in the first four weeks! I have lost 4 inches from my waist and 2 inches from my hips where i needed it most. My overall weight loss is a modest 7 lbs but I feel so much better and stronger. Friends remark on how toned I look and clothes fit where they should.
I intend to continue with MAX Workouts. I've even bought friends a MAX Workouts as a gift and they too are now setting themselves a challenge because they can see that I'm proof it works.
