Whilst working with Jess in the Nutrition Coaching Program she achieved a sensational 6.8kg drop in just over 6 weeks! She absolutely smashed it. However, her transformation goes far beyond her physical transformation! Jess has blossomed into a stronger person physically, mentally and nutritionally! Jess the person I met in our initial consultation in comparison to the lady I see now is stronger, independent and in more control then ever! During our time working together her results exceeded weight loss and her energy levels boosted to an all time high! Plus she achieved so so much change! I am beyond proud of her and all that she has achieve so far, and I can’t wait to see what she can achieve next! Keep up the great work Jess!

Here is Jess’ story in her words:
“My sister Caitlin and I were training somewhere else. We felt that this gym wasn’t meeting our needs in many ways. We were feeling uncomfortable about attending session which quickly turned into avoidance. Caitlin mentioned that she had trained at TF a few years ago and they were having a challenge starting the following Monday and we should try. I came in and met with Viki and Steve and straight away knew that there is something different about TF. Many other gyms promise they care and cater for everyone, but TF really does!
We signed up to the challenge, it went for 4 weeks but after the second class we knew we couldn’t leave. I love how genuine everyone is, no matter your ability or injury the class is catered to you to make sure you can achieve your best. We celebrate each other’s achievements. I like that the goals keep me accountable as well.
In 2020 I really struggled with the lockdown, so when the first lockdown of 2021 struck I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t bury myself in my work. I would instead invest in myself. Being at home and the zoom workouts were convenient; this meant that most weeks I was able to complete 6 workouts! Lockdown was coming to an end, and I didn’t want my momentum to end. Terri advertised a nutrition coaching special, so I registered for that.
When I first joined TF I was waiting surgery on my varicose veins. It had been delayed 4 times because of COVID and I was down to less than 20% blood flow in my legs. I found it hard to complete high impact exercise and any exercises with my legs as they just didn’t have the strength. I constantly felt frustrated with myself. Finally in June I managed to have my surgery between lockdowns. I felt like I had all new legs, but I am still working to gain the strength back.
My job is a Food Studies and Hospitality secondary school teacher, so cooking food should become second nature to me. I have a BIG love for food, but my choices and frequency for eating were all wrong! Working with Emilia on my nutrition through the nutrition bootcamp, I ended up waking up hungry and excited to eat. Every three to four hours this excited hungry feeling returns. I love training. In lockdown I was training more than 6 times a week, now because of the hybrid version being offered at TF I am still able to train at least 4 times a week. I cannot wait for school holidays so I can get back to 6 sessions a week! Sure there are times when I would rather find other things to do, but I notice my mental health benefits greatly from attending!
Emilia, thank you for enabling me to reset myself and find my way back to a healthier lifestyle!” – Jess Mann
