Before BBR I was reasonably fit, having made a real effort over the past six years since my
youngest child was born. I exercised regularly and had already lost about 10kgs of ‘baby’ weight
and while I was eating good food, I wasn’t achieving my goal of shedding those last few
About 18 months before I joined BBR, I was working long hours in a very demanding job and
thought it was better to just keep to my usual routine. Earlier this year, we made a family decision that I would take on a less demanding position and work part-time. That’s when I joined BBR and I only wish I’d moved over sooner! My whole BBR experience has been head and shoulders above any other gym/exercise I’ve taken part in.
From the very first meeting with Ryan, I just knew it would be a different experience. I kicked off with a 30 Day Challenge, including a Dexa scan, goal setting with Ryan and a meal plan. I lost those niggling 3kgs in the first 30 days and soon I’ll do a repeat Dexa scan to see what body composition improvements I’ve made. I started training three times a week but the enthusiasm, energy and comraderie of all the trainers and members is infectious so I’m now training five sessions a week.
An unexpected benefit of training with BBR for me is the sense of calm my life has now, as I’ve always been a fast-paced person. I love that BBR is more than just a big burst of exercise during a challenge – it’s a way of life thanks to Ryan’s passion for wellness, the lovely BBR community and the various workshops to improve physical and mental health.
