It’s our pleasure to introduce our wonderful client, Kelly, who is our ‘Transformation of The Year’ for 2023!
Kelly from South Liverpool decided to join our personal training gym in Speke after having read an article in the Liverpool Echo about another client of ABS who had lost 100lb at the same gym.
Kelly had also recently been diagnosed with diabetes and knew she wanted to make a big change in her life. She was worried about how her lifestyle would affect her in the years to come and wanted to get fitter, healthier and to bring her diabetes into remission.
Like many other clients, Kelly was nervous at the thought of going to a personal training gym, but after seeing the results of ABS client Gemma Naughton, she used that as her inspiration to sign up and get going.
Kelly said: “I had trained in public gyms before but decided that I needed something more personal and bespoke to achieve the big goals I had.”
“Before starting with my PT, I had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, so a priority for me was to reverse that and lose weight. After having seen Gemma’s 100lbs weight loss, I thought I could do the same.”
When she first joined us in Speke, Kelly and her personal trainer Sam began a programme that initially focused on a tailored weight loss style training plan. Kelly had also taken up Zumba classes twice a week that allowed her to burn calories.
Kelly began to lose weight quickly and by July her Type 2 diabetes was in remission.
Over the rest of the programme, Kelly’s plan was consistently reviewed and adapted to ensure her weight loss progressed at a steady pace.
By December 2023, Kelly had passed the 100lb mark which she says has completely “changed her life.”
Kelly said: “After the first week I doubted if I could go on, but I was pushed, encouraged and supported to keep going.”
“The programme completely changed my life. Everything took a complete 180. I began to see food differently, I was more active with my children and went from a physical activity level of zero to climbing Snowden. I never thought this would happen to me but it has happened and I cannot wait for the future.”
Kelly’s trainer Sam said: “Kelly has gained a massive amount of confidence, she has joined additional Zumba classes and climbed Snowdon. Not only has Kelly achieved some amazing results with her weight, she has also been given the green light that her diabetes is now in remission which has changed her life. I am immensely proud of Kelly and cannot wait to see what goals we smash in the future.”
Going forward Kelly and Sam plan to continue her training to see what more they can achieve in 2024.
The whole team at ABS is so proud of Kelly and all she has achieved with Sam. We wish her all the very best for the future.
