Everyone has a story….. This is mine:
Like most woman I can say I have never been happy with my body – After the birth of my 2nd child my weight would go up and down until one day and I don’t know how it happened, I tipped the scales at 110kgs and that tipped me over the edge. I was obese and like a switch had been flicked I wanted to change forever, drastic action needed to be taken – no more fad diets or ½ hearted walks around the block. I’m all in and trip to the doctor talked about my options. Armed with some new and daunting information I sat with my husband (who loves me at any size I must say) and could see this was it for me. He took my hand and said, what’s our next step xoxox
With my husband, our 2 boys , family and friends’ full support, our lifestyle changed. Long story short today I weigh in at 66kgs the happiest and healthiest I have ever been – controlled diet – gym – personal trainers – walking buddy – fun challenges with mates like Tough Mudder – 10km fun runs etc and last year I rewarded myself with a surgery to remove excess skin (tummy tuck ).
The big question how did I get into pole?
My goal to be 65kgs happy & healthy I can taste it but like all goals when you work so hard to get them it leaves you wanting more and you allow yourself the luxury to aim higher – my new goal is to be 65kgs happy healthy strong and dare I say it, muscle definition. Not over the top but some nice lines lol A holiday in Thailand on a night in Bangla Road, I found myself in awe of the talent, the strength and the control in poledancers and what started out as a big joke landed me in a Physipole class in Hervey Bay – I am shocked!
And to my surprise it has ticked all the boxes I was looking for • Time out just for me • A class to attend each week – out of my comfort zone and to try something different • Sculpt my body – but not in a gym • I wanted something fun and not repetitive • Social experience • To be more confident and love the skin I’m in
I am only level 2 pole and also attend a strength class each week. I can’t believe how far myself and class mates have come – we all travel over 25mins to class from the same town – with a carpool system now in place we have quite the social event. If I am one step closer to a 6 pack I would have to say the amount of laughing has to contribute! My favorite day of the week is Wednesday! Big Thank you for the professional dedicated staff, online support, fun environment & class mates. I recommend this class to any shape, size or gender. It is a personal journey – enjoy life – try something new xoxo Favorite trick would have to be anything upside down lol – At the moment upside down crucifix.
