Drew came to me to help him with a program and food plan specific to his sport of downhill bike riding. He wanted to increase his strength and conditioning like any athlete does for their sport. He just didn't know how to go about doing it.
Drew's a computer programmer so he's very methodical. Giving him a program and food plan to follow was easy. I had no doubt he would absolutely smash it.
The biggest challenge for him was his nutrition as he is intolerant to gluten and dairy. Also finding time to train as he is a father of two very active girls.
Not only does he look amazing in just 13 weeks on our program, but he placed amongst the best riders in the world in a major race called the Trans NZ Enduro race. Congrats Drew!!!
Madeline a.k.a Maddie's story is another one that makes us so proud.
Maddie:"I just wanted to say a massive thank you. I went shopping for my graduation dress and when I put it on I have never felt so good about myself and my body! It was such a special moment, and I felt really proud of myself! I just wanted to tell you guys how much I've been enjoying working out with you and how much of a difference you have made not only in my health and fitness but in my whole life! You guys are so caring and I really appreciate how much you care about my fitness journey! You guys are the best!"
Transformation = increased energy, reduced anxiety and improved sleep.
These photos are 8 weeks apart so Irene did amazing at reducing her body fat and losing weight.
The main thing we changed for Irene was her nutrition. We got her on a two week cleanse which turned into four because she loved the results she was getting.
According to her FitBit, she had 1-2 hours of better quality sleep, had less anxiety attacks and felt more energetic.
Great work Irene. You’re a prime example that simple changes to your diet can make a massive difference.
Kim was never a fan of Personal Trainers because the last time she hired a PT for her wedding, she was pushed too hard. She dreaded it.
And then all excuses came up like "I don't have time", "It's too hard", "I'm not motivated enough". Then she came across us. She thought our offering was very unique. An online program suited for working parents which included your own set of exercise equipment, a nutrition program, the ability to do sessions in person and online (ideal during home isolation) and an empowering community.
Carl started with DIYPT when the COVID-19 lockdown hit Sydney and we all had to stay at home. Which meant I did my DIYPYT sessions via Zoom online.
Carl was unsure about the online platform but he gave it a shot.
He was surprised at how well they went and loved the convenience of not having to travel.
Carl initially had some poor movement mechanics which caused him shoulder, neck and knee pain. However, with his commitment and hard work he became one of our top members, challenging himself with the more difficult movements and increasing the resistance load.
Carl is a man of a few words but what he says here will touch us forever "Thank you for all your guidance, encouragement and enthusiasm. It's a joy to be part of the DIYPYT family".
Transformation = rehab and strengthen hip.
After having my babies, I noticed my body started to change. At times it felt like a broken doll- I discovered I had some serious health complications especially to do with my hip and that news shattered me. I started to feel down. My body was stiffening up and I was barely 40!
That’s when I decided to join DIYPT to receive more guidance from a fitness and nutrition point of view.
To be honest, I was hesitant in the beginning as I was worried I would cause more harm to my existing injuries but Jono and Trinh had my back right from the start and they gave me so much support. I really felt, with their support and my family’s support, I could do this.
They adapted the program for me, and what I loved was that I received regular phone check ins to see how I was doing.
I have put in the hard work- doing 2 group sessions every week including following the DIYPT program at home with my cool gym kit. It has given me the results I wanted.
I started the program during the Covid saga, 12 weeks down the track I lost 6Kg! YAY!
Those extra kilos has helped settle my hip and has strengthened that area. I am feeling fabulous at 40!
I have also loved incorporating the macro diet and really value the importance of portion control and self care.
I love being active now and being a great model to my family. The biggest game changer for me is, keeping up with my boys and husband. And the icing on the cake was fitting back into my corporate dresses and frocks with a new found confidence! I have to say that absolutely rocks!
Transformation = Increased strength and endurance. Meet Super Mum, Rose, who is a mother of 3 energetic boys and works full time as a Scientist! .
Despite her crazy schedule like most working mothers, she makes time for her training and we are extremely proud of her for choosing to take care of health first!
She is one of the most consistent members we have, and her consistency has no doubt paid off. She can now do pushups on her toes plus with a resistance band wth amazing form and is the strongest females we have currently, even stronger than Trinh 🥳🤗😍
Transformation = Increased strength, lost 5% body fat and 6kgs in 3 months. It wasn't an easy journey for Dilnar.
This year was a very tough year for most people including Dilnar. She was very busy with work and family life to stay on top of the changes that COVID brought into her life. In addition, she had a glute and knee injury which limited her from doing certain exercises.
Nevertheless, in true Dilnar style, she persevered, was consistent, didn't give up and now is reaping the rewards. Plus, using our Rehab Trainer expertise, we helped Dilnar recovered fully from her injuries and is now reaping the rewards. Congratulations Dilnar.
