AH: Why did you choose Vibration training?
FL: I was convinced that after turning 30 one could
not get fit anymore. I have never been a gym bunny, I find
big gyms with weights and machine equipment intimidating. I
would not feel comfortable in that environment. After I
turned 40, I talked to a friend about feeling that I needed
to exercise, but not wanting to attend a gym. She was doing
Vibration fitness and she encouraged me to try it. From the
very first session, I was hooked on Vibration fitness. I
enjoyed the exercises.
Even though they were hard, I soon learned how to do them and
to progress to harder ones! Vibration fitness is a good
option for me; it gives me maximum effect for a minimum of
time. I can train when it suits me, and the trainers are
friendly, caring and they make sure that I do the right
exercises, challenging me with new programmes, and this for
no extra cost.
AH: What has Vibration fitness done for you?
FL: When I started I was 106kg, and 1½ years later my
weight was 72kg. The training has toned my body, I have lost
weight, my posture has improved and I feel so much more
confident. I lost the first 9kg only by doing Vibration
fitness and after that I started to think about my eating
habits. I have developed a healthy lifestyle, I am stronger
and I feel that I have regained control of my life.
AH: What kept you motivated with your training?
FL: When I first started to exercise again, my husband
suggested taking a photo of me, so that we could measure
progress as time went by. Every time I felt a bit unmotivated
my husband took a photo of me, and even though the weight did
not go down so much at times, I could see differences in the
photos. This helped me realise that I could change and helped
me to keep going.
I could feel progression in the exercises I was doing; I
could do more exercises and I could do them for longer, and
that felt good! At the studio I saw other people doing
challenging exercises which I thought I could never do. Then
the day came when I could do them too! That was so
empowering. It also helped to see the progress in others:
beginner or regular, we all work towards the same goal, we
AH: Can you give any tips to people who are looking
for weight loss?
FL: Yes, set targets for yourself. The targets have to
be small and reasonable. Be kind to yourself, believe in
yourself and have patience. Look for changes in your daily
life, not just the specific thing you do to lose weight. One
day I had to walk home after work, up a long, steep hill.
Although I had got back to exercising through Vibration
fitness training, I had not done any walking for a long time,
let alone up to Wakari! I made it all the way without
being puffed at all, and realised how much of a change
Vibration fitness training had helped me accomplish!
