How did the coaching team & content help you to achieve your target?

 

The presentations each week were informative and helpful.  The coaches were motivating, fun and realistic.  The 45 minutes of exercise in the sports hall was very good to compliment the information given in the first half of the session.  Weighing in each week was an added incentive to lose weight each week.

What changes did you make for yourself?

 

I cut out cake, biscuits, chocolate, sweets, crisps.  I ate healthily concentrating on vegetables, fruit and a small amount of protein.  I look at the food packets now to see how many calories and grams of fat items have.  It is surprising how many calories are in a piece of salmon. The only exercise I added was the 45 minutes at shape up each week.  I was already walking miles with the Ramblers.
