FIONA’S CASE STUDY

Posted in Client Blogs by admin on December 28th, 2007

I was sitting with a friend over dinner prior to Christmas and we came up with a great new way to motivate people who want to lose weight. My good friend Fiona moved to London a while ago now and has gradually put on weight over the last few years – and now it has caught up with her. She wants to do something about it BIG TIME and we have come up with the perfect solution….Fiona is going to write a strict Blog for TJF- 5 days a week for the next 6 months. The idea is that by her birthday in June, Fiona will have transformed her body and be at her target weight. I have always promised her that her goals were possible, but her problem was always comittment.Now Fiona has to commit to her own personal weight loss case study. She will be required to be in constant contact with the TJF Team through the Blog. Fiona must write a daily food diary and must do 5 workouts a week for the next 6 months – and we will comment, support, motivate and guide her through her transformation.Follow Fiona’s journey by checking out her Blog here!Why not drop her some words of support!Hopefully at the end of the 6 months Fiona will allow me to upload some before and after shots of her transformation!Check back 2nd January for day 1.To return to the TJF Personal Training homepage click here – Personal Trainer LondonPS: Please visit our new website Arcanum Phuket to view our new wellness retreat in Phuket called The Arcanum.

PETER’S CASE STUDY 2005

Posted in Client Blogs by admin on October 18th, 2007

(See images below to see before and after shots of Peter).”I’ve always been very active & I’ve always enjoyed a ‘work-hard, play-hard’ attitude to life. In my teens and early twenties I balanced a lively work & social life (and diet to match) with cycling, rugby & an active role as a Territorial Army Officer. Work and domestic pressures meant that these activities tailed off in my late twenties but the socializing – particularly the eating & drinking – didn’t. Without seeming to notice it I slid from fit, active and thin to unfit, out of shape and very overweight.Nudging my mid-thirties, I knew that it was ‘now or never’ for losing the weight and getting back to reasonable fitness. Changing the diet, cutting out the booze and easing back into exercise saw some of the weight go, but getting down to an optimum weight and, more importantly, recovering a good level of fitness always seemed just out of reach, however little I ate, however much time I spent in the gym.I’d always been a bit cynical about personal trainers but a couple of the guys in the gym talked about the results that they were getting with Tim. I gave it a go and the results were quite fantastic. His advice on exercise technique and diet in particular was a real eye opener and with the motivation and targets Tim provided helped me considerably in achieving my goals. The weight started to drop off really quickly and my fitness levels rose massively. The difference in what I can do and how good I feel is HUGE. One of the biggest benefits for me was the way that I had a programme designed specifically for me, that gave me exactly what I wanted and still fitted into my busy schedule.”Peter – Company Partner.
