January 2013 Client of the month – Amanda Sims

Make Me Do It ‘Client of the Month’ aims to celebrate the success of our clients and inspire others to make a positive change in their lives.

Introducing Amanda Sims – Make Me Do It client of the month, January 2013

Note from Paul Gloury – Owner of Make Me Do It.When Amanda started out, she phoned to enquire about Personal Training. I remember the first thing she mentioned was that she preferred not to train in a group environment. Whether it was confidence or a perception, it’s interesting to note that Amanda has now completed 120 group fitness sessions and isn’t looking back!

Hi Amanda, please tell us about yourself away from fitness

Hi everyone! I like a lot of ME time whether it’s shopping or just watching a movie. My partner and I also love to go camping whenever we can.

When did you start training with Make Me Do It?

I started Personal Training with Paul in May 2012. In June I joined the 6 winter 6 week weightloss competition, run in conjunction with Carla Johnson (dietician).

Just by increasing my exercise, I managed to lose 6kg within a couple months. After that I sterted to pay more attention to what I was eating.

What have been your biggest challenges/achievements since you started training with Make Me Do It

To begin with, my biggest challenge was motivating myself but after a few classes the training became part of my routine and now part of my life! It really helped to meet other likeminded clients

My biggest achievement would be the amount of weight I lost in such a short time and the huge boost in my confidence and self esteem.

How has your life changed through improving your fitness?

I have heaps more energy to do everyday things, definitely more confidence in myself. Knowing the effort that has gone into changing myself has made me a lot happier in my own skin.

What are your future health and fitness goals?

A few of my close friends have joined in training with me, which is another motivating factor.  I’m aiming to complete the Feb Monthly Event -Mini Tough Muddder. Excited about the new programs being introduced. And looking forward to take on anything MMDI throws at me.

What would you say to anyone thinking about training with Make Me Do It?

Simply, this is the best thing I have done for myself. Have a go, you’ve got nothing to lose!
