I'm just a girl who fell in Love with Weights
Having spent all my late teenage years and early twenty's partying, travelling and partying some more, I was horrified when I saw a picture of myself in January 2012.
At just 25, I looked over 40. My skin was pale, grey almost, I had huge bags under my eyes and big round chubby cheeks. I didn't recognise myself.
So I decided to take action and Join a gym.
I had no idea what I was doing and spent the next few months walking on a treadmill and not making any progress. Then a Young PT approached me and offered me a free taster session. I wasn't keen, but also knew I needed help, so I took him up on that offer and bit the bullet.
During my First PT Session with Kasra he showed me around the weights room and introduced me to the leg press, which he promptly loaded with 80kg. Now that may not seem like much, but I'd never even heard of a leg press, let alone moved any weight before in my life.
But he looked me in the eyes and said 'I believe in you'
I did it. I moved that weight.
It was tough, but I did it, Over & Over.
At the end of the session I sat in the changing room and cried. Not tears of sadness but tears of joy, tears of satisfaction, tears of pride.
I realised in that moment that I had never pushed myself past my 'limits'. I had never believed in myself enough to try anything out of my comfort zone and saddest of all, no one else had ever told me they believed in me either.
That was it, I was hooked and I've never looked back.
Over the past 9 years I have studied and gained several fitness & nutrition qualifications all with the goal of helping others to feel the same way Kasra made me feel that day.
So here I am.
