I’ve been on the Affiliate for just over 6 months now. Before I joined I had been going to the gym training 5/6 times a week. I thought I knew what I was doing. How wrong was I? I definitely wasn’t training hard enough and definitely wasn’t training the right way. Apart from the training, my diet was a mess. I was one of those people that was terrified of carbs. I was only eating protein and veg. I was running on empty. Pushing myself through training sessions, dragging myself through the day. Food was way down, therefore energy was down. Stress, moodiness and irritability was up! I honestly didn’t know what or how much of what I should have been eating.
I knew from the get go Larry is a good coach with an amazing reputation, so I put my trust in him and just went with it and stuck to the plan. This meant eating more and training hard. Not only do I work hard in the gym. I put the same amount of focus and energy into nutrition, sleep, keeping NEAT up and keeping stress down. I have been really consistent throughout and have got awesome results. As he says himself KIFS. Nail the simple stuff and the results with follow.
I don’t think I’ve ever felt this good. I just feel healthy! And there is soo much to be said for that. My whole outlook on “health and fitness” has changed since joining the Affiliate. It’s about fuelling your body to perform and knowing when to rest. Listen and respect your body.
The monthly programs are just great too. Receiving a new fresh program each month keeps me motivated and interested. I feel like I’ve only started to properly lift weights the past few months. Lifting with correct form and tempo and engaging those muscles.
The past 6 months have been such a learning curve for me. Im loving the lifting and eating but I’ve also really started to focus on managing stress and sleep quality. Rather than spending my weekends in the gym, I get out and spend some quality time with my family. We go for a hike every Sunday and we are loving it.
I’m really excited for the next 6 months I’m at the stage now where I’m considering a lean bulk. First time ever!
