it's never too late
The fitness industry is full of before and after pictures, some completely amazing, but something that pictures will never tell is the real story behind those pictures.
Ive had the privilege to help transform many people over the last 17 years inside my Hartlepool gym and meeting and working with this lady inside of my Personal Training program has been a real honor.
As coaches and trainers we like to think that we can change everybody we meet, but unfortunately that's just not true, those we meet have to be ready for change, and even tho we meet thousands of people that say they want help, most are not ready for help, Beth was ready for help and this is her story, in her words and what it has done for her.
When I first met Ian I was at a very low point in my life after suffering from depression and a lifetime of dieting and low self esteem, I thought I would never find a way out.
I had joined a few gyms in the past, only to find them dull and uninspiring and often quite unfriendly.
However, earlier this year I read about some amazing success stories on Ian’s website. This place seemed to be different. Ian’s “no diets” approach to weight loss was so refreshing.
So I made the best decision of my life and went to ask Ian for some help.
I must admit, I was worried in case I was going to end up going down the same road again, ending up a failure.
But I needn’t of worried, within seconds of meeting Ian I knew he was special. Not only did he make me feel welcome, but he treated me with respect and fully understood my background. I asked him if it was too late for my 55 yr old self to lose weight and become fit.
He told me it was “never “too late and from that moment Ian was able to help me believe in myself again.
It became clear that Ian had such a profound knowledge of fitness and nutrition; from the start he showed me a genuine pathway to a strong body and mind.
That day I arranged to start some personal training sessions with Ian and my life changed dramatically.
Gone are the years of dieting, I love food and enjoy it more than ever. Instead of waking up thinking “red or green day” now I’m thinking “new day” or “good day”
I love coming to the gym, whether its on my own or training with Ian. I can feel my body becoming stronger, I’m losing weight without dieting and I’m learning about health and fitness in a totally new way.
In around 6 months I already feel fitter than I ever have been, I’m starting to take part in running events that I wouldn’t normally have the courage to do, and running faster and better than ever before.
Trust me, this is like no other gym and Ian is like no other coach. All the trainers at Ian’s gym are friendly and encouraging. It’s a place where real results are happening all the time, there are no failures here.
Through Ian’s expertise I can honestly say that he has given me my life back along with myself worth, I feel so free.
Above all, along with his knowledge and enthusiasm, Ian has a rare “generosity of spirit” that comes from within. He always gives more of himself each day, to help people reach their goals and their full potential.
It’s hard to think of words that are powerful to thank Ian, he is without doubt “the real deal”
I’d like to think that somebody like me, who wants to change their life, or break that diet spell, is reading this right now, and is considering if they should come and speak with Ian , take my advice, just do it now, just ask for help, you will have taken the most positive step towards achieving true success.
Are you really ready for help ?
