Helen Marsland – Bootcamp Testimonial

36lbs and still counting……

In November 2011 I gave birth to my 2nd little girl and was still carrying baby weight from the first baby back in 2008; however this time I had set myself the challenge of getting married just 17 weeks later in March 2012.

Over the new year period I knew I wanted to do a kind of boot camp related thing to help me shift the weight for my wedding but was un-sure on committing and then on the 2nd January Gavin answered my prayers by posting a deal on Groupon for new starters to join him at Sale water park……the deal was not to begin until the Wednesday but I rang and begged him to let me go that day otherwise I may just never do it.

My first night was so hard, I became best friends with the M60 bridge running over it 5 times I was amazed that i managed to do it, but the adrenalin was pumping and everyone was so supportive and Gavin was really helpful and understanding knowing that I had only given birth 6 weeks prior. The following two days were painful but I got back on the horse ‘so to speak’ and here I am now with a little help from eating a little better and Gavin and the gang at Motiv8 I would not have felt so great or looked great on my wedding day…..up to now I have lost 36lbs dropped 3 dress sizes and I am still going for it I love boot camp so much and it has really changed my life making the simplest of things easier like running around after my three year old, up and down the stairs with the washing and even more so another holiday as I am very much looking forward to joining the gang boot camp Ibiza in October.

I would recommend boot camp to anyone who wants to lose weight or just get fit, it works for all not matter what ability, I have made lots of new friends and enjoyed every minute of it and will never look back…..Motiv8 is defiantly for me!!!
