Lauri Burke Transformation

I have struggled with y weight my whole life. I tried everything, from dietitians and nutritionists to food addiction counselors and trainers. I was constantly unhappy within my own body and always made excuses, blaming everyone else for my problem. I kind of just gave up and said well this is me there’s nothing more I can do about it.After spending 2 years in America and a holiday in Israel, I reached the big 100kgs. I could no longer look at the scale anymore. I’d cry even thinking about it. I felt lost within myself and wanted to give up on life. I got bullied by most people around me and I knew that I had to do something before it was too late. My health was deteriorating and I was afraid of the many problems I could face going forward. I did not know where to go or what to do with myself anymore.

This all changed In July last year. My mom came home from seeing a friend who had lost a significant amount of weight. She told me how she had done it and asked whether I’d be interested. At first I was hesitant. I knew I had tried so many things before yet nothing had worked, but I slept on it and the next day I decided By myself, to send geoff a message. He immediately responded and we met up the next day.

From the moment I stepped out of the doors of the gym after meeting up with him, I felt confident that this would be it. There was just something about the way he spoke to me that made me know that I was in good hands. I was going to change. I even remember telling geoff that he must watch me do this because I Will give it my all, 100%.

Well, here I am today, only 10 months later having lost 29kgs and only 1 away from my big goal of being under 70kgs. I constantly get asked how did you do it? And the answer to that is quite simple. My trainers! Jess and geoff have been my lifesavers, my friends and my motivation. I can count on them to be there for me whenever I need a push or to motivate me to keep going. The most important thing about them to me is that they have been by my side through my whole journey from day 1 and have never given up on me, always believing in me and my abilities to succeed. When I feel like I may be going backwards, they are there to pick me back up again and help to push me forwards and keep working towards my goals. They know exactly what they are doing and they make training so much more fun. They are talented and experienced in what they do and They have helped me to not just lose weight, but to live a healthy balanced lifestyle. They’ve taught me what is healthy and what is not, the good foods and the bad foods and they have showed me that with determination, strong will power and the belief in yourself, that you CAN do anything!

Today I am happier, healthier and the most confident I have ever been in my life. the people who I used to look up to because they were so skinny and healthy, now look up to me and want to train with me, constantly asking me how I do it. I honestly cannot even comprehend how grateful I am to have the Jess and geoff in my life and I look forward to the ongoing transformation process working with them.IMG-20170525-WA0010IMG-20170525-WA0011
