In January 2013 I walked into Activeliving feeling overweight, tired and self conscious. I did a 90day PT program with Nadine and lost a total of 68cm from my body. These photos are me the real me, no fad diets, no pill popping just simply a change of lifestyle. 1yr later I have maintained my weight all because I was taught what to eat and when to eat. I no longer feel tired, overweight or self-conscious even at the beach!
Let me tell you too that having never been able to run (so I told myself prior to seeing Nadine) and at 36yrs in August 2013 I ran and finished my 1st ever 1/2marathon. I had no intentions of doing this but as I continued to train I was becoming fitter, healthier and happier then I have ever been. Nadine taught me to believe anything is possible and I started to believe her! On the day of my marathon Nadine was there to support me and wrote on my arm (in biro )
“DON’T LISTEN TO THE VOICE”
Wow look at Me ! crossing the 21.1km finishing line chasing down my son Jett. Boy! what a feeling… it was electric overwhelming and very surreal. I’d just completed a half marathon.
Standing on the finishers podium I’m so proud of the journey I’ve taken to earn this today. I can’t wipe the smile off my face. I’m on top of the world!!

- I cannot not tell you how many times I re-read this but there was no-way in this world I was going to let that little voice in my head make me give up. To this day I still do not listen, nothing can beat the power of the mind because “I will not give up”. I try to get involved with as many active events as possible to keep me challenged like the first ever color run and the 20km Breast cancer walk.

- I am not telling you to run a marathon but I will tell you that without the support from Nadine I would be still locked up in my uncomfortable old self. I continue to train with Nadine simply because I love the personal and supportive environment that the Active Living team give. From One Happy Mummy xx – (Melinda Williams )
