I have been training with Val at (Rawfit) since October 2013. I have been a yoyo dieter for years always looking for quick fix weight loss. I went to the gym on average 3 times a week and enjoyed an active lifestyle yet I could never sustain a manageable weight which I was happy with.
When I first started the clean eating plan and the tri-weekly outdoor early morning training sessions at Roundhay Park the penny finally dropped that I needed to quit the diet food and the long sessions on the cross trainer and start eating clean wholesome food and pushing myself to the limits through short bursts of interval training.
The results were quickly apparent as I grew fitter, stronger, less lethargic, lost weight and inches, had a better complexion and generally felt 100% better from the inside out.
Val is one of the most patient men I have ever met, he is a great motivator and leads by example. He is a down to earth grounded guy, so understands there will be ups and downs along your journey but he never judges just gently leads you back onto the right path again with sound knowledgeable advice.
My New Years resolution has been to lose weight and get fit every year for the past 25 years, but this year I had no need to make that. Through hard work and dedication with the help of Val and the inspiration of the other ladies, I train with I know this is now a lifestyle change not a short fix January resolution.
I love my body and my life so much more now. I cannot thank Val at Rawfit enough.
