Meet Kaz, a wonderful PARC employee and two-time participant in the PARC 8-week challenge.
Being 52, overweight and with hip issues I decided it was time to do something about it. The timing was perfect, PARC’s 8 week challenge was about to start so I decided to take the plunge and signed up and I haven’t looked back since.
Exercising for me was a walk around the block, so PT sessions were all new to me. Pru was fabulous and made me feel very welcome. She altered the exercises to suit my needs and I met a great bunch of girls that I would always look forward to working out with.
The challenge provides nutritional information, meal plans, additional group training sessions along with the amazing support of all the PT’s.
With my weight loss being slow I went and saw the LifeCare Nutritionist, Alison. She too was very helpful and gave me a few tips and made really helpful changes to my diet.
It certainly isn’t an easy journey but then neither is weight loss. Once my first 8 weeks ended I was really happy with how far I had come so I decided to go again.
I had a different trainer this time, Cassie, but she was fabulous and always encouraging us to go that little bit further.
This time around I was in my routine and it made it that little bit easier. I was still achieving weight loss and cm’s were disappearing then… bang! In week 7 I achieved my weight loss goal that I had set myself.
Dancing around the house I was so so happy and proud of my efforts.
So as I write this my 2nd challenge has now ended. I started a PLUS size 18 and now I can fit into a size 14 jeans and my tops are no longer an XL but a medium.
