This beautiful lady is one of our Fitness Family here at Peak. Flora is truly inspiring and we would like to share her fitness journey with you.
Flora became part of our Fitness Family not long after we opened. Over the months we have not only seen Flora lose an incredible amount of weight, but her confidence has grown dramatically as has her ability to kick ass in the gym and push herself beyond her limits.
Flora’s weight loss journey began after a health scare. After visiting her doctor Flora was told that if she did not change her lifestyle then she was very close to developing Type 2 diabetes. Understandably, Flora made some immediate changes to prevent this from happening. Initially, she joined a slimming group and set herself small goals. Flora told us: “I started off setting myself goals, so the first stone was just plain to say “I lost a stone” and the second stone was for my best friend’s wedding – which I got it the week before her wedding!”
After a while, Flora noticed that her weight had reached a plateau for a number of months. Eventually, the weight began to come off again and Flora set herself another goal of 3 stone. Flora’s goal for this was so that she could get her back tattooed – which she did when she reached her goal.
Eventually, Flora’s weight stabilised again and this time she decided to combine good eating with exercise and joined us at Peak. Initially unsure about joining a gym, Flora has gone from strength to strength and comes in most days. Flora has benefitted from her Personal Training sessions and now kicks ass on her own using a variety of equipment she never would have done previously (slam ball and plyometric box). Since joining Peak she has lost another 1st 4lbs and counting!
What is amazing to see is Flora and her friend encouraging each other on their fitness journey together. We wish you both the best of luck and know you will reach your goal. Flora is truly an inspiration and we hope that sharing her story will encourage others to show that you can do anything you set your mind to and if you are unsure about joining a gym – knowing that everyone has to start somewhere and with the right encouragement and advice you will only wish you had done it sooner!
Please feel free to leave any comments of support and encouragement for Flora as she continues to kick ass on her health and fitness journey xx
