“I started my fitness journey in 2021 with a simple goal to lose 10kg. I was overweight, tired and in pain, suffering from severe inflammation and gut health issues. The result of not allowing myself time for self care. My diet was terrible and I was drinking way too much with little to NO exercise.
I felt defeated and convinced that it was impossible to lose weight and get fit as a peri menopausal 45 year woman.
I took my first step and joined a local gym and lost the 10kg over 7 months. This gave me the confidence to keep going.
I had known about Enterprise Fitness for many years as clients of ours but didn’t think I could ever achieve the kind of outstanding fitness results they were showing on their website at my age, I felt a little intimidated. But I had hit a plateau and knew they were the best.
I joined Enterprise knowing that it would not only challenge me physically but provide me with an education. I wanted to know if it was possible to get stronger and form healthy habits to last a life time. It wasn’t an intimidating experience at all, the team and environment is so relaxed, friendly & supportive.
After starting with Enterprise in late 2021 (after lockdowns), I ended up being able to step on stage and compete in my first body building competition in July 2022 and am now hooked on the strength training lifestyle.
Post competition brought new challenges and I have struggled with my mindset around food and fear of gaining weight. I felt ashamed after all the quality training I had received so far so kept quiet until my strength gains & health became compromised.
I started training with Lewis 3 months ago and he has given me the clarity and direction I needed.
Since starting with Lewis my strength has been continually improving weekly. He has provided me with so much knowledge on movement and technique and above all helped transform my approach to nutrition and relationship with food with his kind, gentle yet firm approach, helping me feel safe with the changes I needed to make.
Without the right nutrition you simply can’t progress and now that I am trusting the process with Lewis the gains are happening again and I can’t wait to get to each session and see what I can achieve.
I am working towards competing in October 2023 and I have full confidence that I will achieve that goal and step on stage even stronger under Lewis’s guidance…. but more importantly keep getting stronger and healthier for decades to come without the mindset that ageing is a barrier.
To sum it up my journey with Enterprise has been transformative and life changing and I will be forever grateful for this experience.” – Karen Merrilees
