Seizure free and loving life

My life has changed because of Tribe and I’m so grateful.  I suffer Epilepsy and Type 2 Diabetes and was often advised to lose weight from my medical practitioners. About 6 years ago I had a seizure that resulted in my license being revoked for 18 months. This was the start of my weight loss journey.

Due to not having a license, I was forced to walk everywhere (yep everywhere), which was the start of my journey. I had a friend who was a Tribe member who spoke very highly of Tribe and encouraged me to join. Since joining Tribe, I’ve lost 20kgs. Yes, that’s a total of 30kgs…gone!

I love everything about Tribe and how Tribe contributes towards my training. The classes offer so much variety, with various circuit classes, weight classes and spin. I can often be found in a Spin class, but I’m a massive fan of Group Personal Training too. These sessions provide excellent weight training and I actually feel like I’m getting a personal 1 on 1 training session. The trainers correct me if needed and it’s simply an awesome way to get a full-body workout with the encouragement from other members to reach weekly goals.

My focus now is on maintaining my weight loss so my body and health remains strong.  I’ve learned a lot at Tribe. I simply couldn’t continue to eat what I was eating and expect results.  Whilst my food is not 100% all of the time, I’m much more knowledgeable and aware of what I’m eating and certainly making healthier choices most of the time.

Tribe is like a second family to me. I was keen to make friends and have definitely done this here at Tribe.  The amazing trainers and the members are supportive and encouraging. A group of us regularly go for coffee after our training and quite often catch up throughout the year to celebrate birthdays and generally have a great time out together enjoying life.

One of the biggest benefits from having lost 30kgs, is my epilepsy is now under control and I’ve managed to stay seizure-free for over 5 years. This has had a massive impact on my life. Consequently, I am now the fittest, strongest and healthiest I remember ever being in my life. Thankyou Tribe!!
