The past year I’ve been struggling with my weight and about 6 months ago I decided that I needed to make some changes in my life. I joined the GETFIT Challenge which was hard, not only physically but emotionally and mentally as well, as I had not cheated on my diet plan or missed a single training session in 12 week. But it also made me a lot stronger in those 3 aspects of my life. I am not done with my weight loss journey, which has seen me lose 23 kg’s in a year, and planning to do another Challenge very soon.

Thank you for having us. I had a full life style change. Sadly, I got a hip and lower back injury and was put off any form of aggressive exercise for 6 weeks, hence why I’ve been a no show for the last 3 and a half weeks… I’m sad I couldn’t finish but even though I carried on with the diet, and I see and feel the change. I will do another 12 week challenge when it comes available, or an 8 week one. I’m so proud of the other champs who pushed through. Thank you to the GetFit team for all their hard work and for pushing us in the right direction, keeping us motivated to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

I joined GETFIT at the beginning of 2018 with the intention to build up my body strength after several injuries. I had two shoulder surgeries in 2013 on my left side and a broken arm and wrist on my right side that same year. As well as major chest surgery in 2017 after incurring injuries from a hijacking attack. My upper body as a result was super weak. I found the weight training was excellent for strength building. Also for the first time in many years I started seeing some tone come back into my form. I had pretty much neglected my physique for 5 years due to complacency from being so badly injured. I had also struggled with binge eating my whole life and had accumulated a lot of abdominal fat. I found with building muscle it helped me burn fat quicker. I also felt my confidence booming as my body started reshaping. I found less desire to comfort eat and within a year I have lost and maintained 8 to 10kg weight loss. Also most women my age are menopausal, yet I feel am peaking in my holistic physical, emotional, spiritual and mental condition. Just really good life balance I guess! And NONE of my past injuries have any influence over my performance today. Thank you Natalie for your incredible encouragement and for GETFIT Durban North’s amazing energy and culture! I’m still here as a member 18 months later and loving the training and GETFIT community!

My 1st exposure to the GETFIT Challenge was in 2009 when I was 43. At that stage it was run by Denver and Neil out of the Westville Virgin Active. During my first challenge I managed to lose 18kg and about 13% body fat. 10 years on and after a couple of joint ops, as a result of ware and tare from sports in my youth, I had sadly put on the kilograms that I had managed to keep off so well, while following the GETFIT eating plan and exercise programme. My excuses were that my joints hurt and I was getting older. In reality, without a proper exercise programme, it is easy to eat badly and become lazy and as a result your body weight increases and your joins take more strain than they should. In November 2018, with the encouragement of Sarah (my wife) we took up a GETFIT “Black Friday” special and signed up for the challenge starting at the end of January 2019. What was really good was that Sarah was going to do the challenge with me so I had no excuses. Although very similar in many ways to the challenges I did 10 years ago, Denver, Paul and their team have fine-tuned the exercise programme, as well as the eating plan. Sarah had never done any form of gym work, so she was quite apprehensive. With the guidance of Denver and Paul, she quickly learnt to find her way around the many different challenges that each session presented us with. Although tough, it was amazing the progress we both made within in the first 2 weeks. One of the things that I realised by doing the challenge with Sarah, was that GETFIT is not just about weight loss. Sarah had been concerned, that on the scale she was not losing weight, (not that she needed to) while my weight was dropping weekly. At the end of 12 weeks, however, the body assessment told the true story and although on the scale Sarah’s weight had increased by nearly 2kgs she had lost 8% body fat. I had managed to lose 15kg and 13% body fat. Many of the aches and pains that had prevented me from starting an earlier challenge had disappeared and both Sarah and I have noticed a marked increase in our general strength and energy levels. We have had a huge amount of fun doing GETFIT and have met super people that have made waking up early that much easier. The enthusiasm and attention to detail that Denver still has after more than 10 years running GETFIT is amazing. Thank you to Denver, Paul and your team, for helping us to achieve our goals. We have enjoyed the GETFIT way of life so much that we have continued on the VIP programme. I would encourage anyone wanting to transform their bodies and increase their energy levels, to give it a go.

My Get Fit journey started in 2013, I had been on a month long trip and had literally eaten my way through Europe. When I got back my weight was at an all-time high and it was a flyer that I received at a robot that persuaded me to give GETFIT a try. During the first challenge I lost 5kgs and I was hooked, I am now a VIP member and train all year long. The diet talks and eating plan gave me insight to the nutritional value of food, and I started making better food choices. The workouts are always different and challenging even after 7 years! I love the feeling of getting stronger and looking after my body. Denver and the trainers at GETFIT are phenomenally encouraging and work with you to achieve your goals. 7 years later, 17kgs lighter and I have maintained the weight loss for 3 years now! Join the Get Fit lifestyle, it’s the best thing you can do for your body!
