Aishah's Story - 12 Weeks
"The thing I liked most about Embody is that everyone at the gym helped me with my goal. Whenever I was in the gym, even PTs who I didn’t work with were checking in on how I was doing. It felt like a real family."
I joined Embody because I wanted to lose weight for my wedding. After years being unhappy with how I looked in pictures, I decided that my wedding would be finally a time where I decided to make a difference. I chose Embody fitness, because the staff were knowledgable and having had lots of clients having gone through a similar process they seemed like the experts in the field.
The initial consultation was thorough asking me about every little aspect of my life, assessing me top to toe to make a tailor-made personalised programme.
Charlie is an excellent PT. He worked really hard to help me achieve my goals. He pushed me during each session to my maximum limits and was constantly trying to push me to reach new goals. It’s amazing how much I progressed from the beginning in terms of what I can do with the weights. We also became great friends, and he helped open my mind to lots of new ideas. He was also always happy to be contacted so if I was having an off day, he would help me decide what to do and keep giving me little tips. He really cared.

As well as losing more weight than I anticipated, one of the big things I learnt from the programme is to to be open minded. I always though that those people that go to the gym regularly and eat healthy is something I could never be. In my head that just wasn’t me or my personality. However the programme showed me that as an individual you can be whoever you want to be and all you have to do is focus your mind on it. I shouldn’t shut myself off because ‘its not me’ . Also my mood was so much better, I felt a lot more happier and positive. I felt empowered to achieve my best in all aspects of my life.
I am really proud of my before and after photos. I was shocked to see how I looked before and absolutely stunned with the results. I can’t believe that I can now wear whatever I want, I don’t have to hide particular parts of me and I’m happy for people to take photos of me. The number of compliments I got from friends, family, work colleagues has been overwhelming. A real confidence boost.
To anyone thinking about joining the Embody programme I would say its not easy, however the team will help you along every step of the way, and it will be 100% worth it. You will be blown away with the results.
