LIFE BEFORE VALE TUDO
Before joining VTT I’d never set foot inside a conventional gym or tried proper weight training. I was quite fit & healthy through calisthenics training. I happened taking a break from my usual training regime, when I ran into an old friend at a party who convinced me to come along for a class. Roughly 3 years on and I’ve never looked back.
Since joining VTT I’ve progressed in my training a lot: I thought when I joined I was fit, but I had no idea. I’ve learned to listen to my body, focus on my technique and learned that I always have more to give each session, even when I’m ready to tap out. Staying consistent and putting in 100% is not something that naturally occurs. I’ve had to teach myself to maintain that.
Looking back at how far I’ve come, my fitness has dramatically improved. I’ve met so many awesome people and in turn made some life-long friends. As well, the attitude I had about myself, and about life in general, has shifted into a really positive space. But most importantly, my kids are witnessing their mum grow into a more healthy, focused, dedicated, and less stressed person, and it’s inspiring them to push themselves to grow too.
