Lose Post Pregnancy Weight and Change Your Lifestyle
Eleni wanted to lose her post pregnancy weight
During her gained during her second pregnancy, Eleni gained a lot of weight. She came to RAW Personal Training to change her lifestyle, improve her general health.
By following our structure, she was able to lose 11% body fat and 10kg. She is now at a weight she hadn’t been since she was first married. Her post-pregnancy weight is gone for good.
Between pregnancies, Eleni did a combination of fitness classes (spin, body pump, yoga) but was not motivated and often cancelled classes at the last minute due to the demands of balancing work and home commitments.
At RAW Personal Training, we keep clients accountable for their goals. One of Eleni’s challenges was sticking to a meal plan. Her trainer was never hard on her, even when she didn’t follow her plan. However, he checked in with her at the start of each week to see how strictly she had been following her meal plan and whether or not she was happy with the progress that week.
Eleni was previously making many errors with her weight training technique. She was constantly getting injured and experiencing back pain.
At RAW Personal Training, we ensure that no one gets injured by starting from scratch and drilling people properly. Now Eleni is injury-free and lifting much heavier than she ever thought she could.
She has virtually no back pain now and does not need to see the physio anymore. This is a sound result of proper training techniques and encouragement by her trainer.
What advice would you give to another woman who wants to lose Post Pregnancy weight?
Find a trainer who will keep you motivated.
Being a working mum meant that I had so many reasons not to exercise, but the trainers at RAW and Jeremy regularly checked in to ensure I stayed on track and achieved these results.
Prepare your meals at home.
Before creating my meal plan and following the nutritional advice from RAW, I often ate out and had no idea how many poor choices I was making and how many hidden ingredients there were in the food I was buying. By preparing my meals at home, I finally had complete control of my diet.
Achieve your goals at your own pace
I looked for a complete lifestyle change rather than an unsustainable “12 week” crash diet and exercise plan to lose my post-pregnancy weight. By doing things at a sustainable pace, I implemented fundamental and permanent changes into my lifestyle.
I feel fantastic and know I can maintain this change.
