Andy Harding helped me change my life.
Over the last ten years, I have tried losing weight by going on different diets and by joining several gyms. I would do well for a couple of months, and then I would fall back into my old patterns. I fluctuated between 160 and 190 pounds, and felt more defeated each time I failed. In addition, during those ten years, I had to manage my disease, ulcerative colitis, which caused me to have to be treated with steroids several times when symptoms arose.
When I started with Andy, I weighed 175 pounds. He came to my house twice a week for an hour and used a variety of fitness tools. The results speak for themselves. In the year I have worked with Andy, I have lost 30 pounds. I have lost 10 centimeters off my chest, 17 centimeters off my waistline and abs, 18 centimeters off my hips, and 19 centimeters off my thighs. I have decreased my body fat by 10%.
But the measurements don’t tell the whole story. I can now do the things I want to do. I can hike with my husband all day in the Peak District and keep up. I can now try on clothes four sizes smaller than when I started and feel great about how I look in them. I can proudly say that my ulcerative colitis has not flared up in over a year. And perhaps most importantly, I can now say that I enjoy exercise. Andy has even set up a running program for me to train for a half marathon when I move back to the US.
Andy is a wonderful trainer to work with. He is always encouraging and motivating you to improve. He is committed to helping you reach your goals. He has never missed a session, and has worked with me while I’ve had a broken wrist (sledding accident) and after I had my gull bladder removed in emergency surgery. He’s even trained my brother and mother-in-law with me when they have come to visit from the US.
I am now moving back to the United States, but I will take the lessons Andy has taught me and continue my journey there. I thank God that I responded to Andy’s advertisement and made the call. It helped me change my life.
