My Weight loss Transformation Journey
My name is Bobbi-Jo. I am a busy wife & mum to 4 young girls and I am a Fitness Professional. I own and operate Follow Me 2 Fitness - a private fitness studio located in Strathpine specializing in Personal Training. I also offer Group Training & Boxing Classes. I have previously worked with both men & women, children & teens, the older generation, people with disabilities and special needs. My vision is to bring fitness to everybody - any age, any ability, any goal!
Fitness can change your life, how do I know this?
Because fitness changed mine!!
Growing up I was always bigger than my peers, I was the kid who sat everything out and never felt comfortable in my body. I have always struggled with my weight but back in 2009 I tipped the scale at 114kg, aged 22. I was beyond unhappy, everyday was a struggle just to get out of bed. I couldn't find any clothes to fit, I couldn't reach my toes, I had trouble getting myself up off the couch and sad to say I had actually broken a few chairs in my time (like something you'd see in a movie!) Finally, the moment that I knew I had to change - a plane ride. I flew to Melbourne with my family, I could barely fit down the aisle and forget about going to the toilet! I was given a seat belt extension as the standard belt did not fit. I felt humiliated, not just for myself but for my family too. Little by little I started making changes, healthy choices and adapting a positive mindset. I was desperate to just be under 100kg - that was my first goal. I continued to reassess my goals as I reached each one. With consistency, determination & persistence I reached my ultimate goal of 60kg! In total I lost 56kg, reaching 58kg in 2011. (I was left with a lot of excess skin on my abdomen which I had surgically removed in 2013)
During my journey I developed a passion for health & fitness. I saw first hand how this lifestyle could transform lives - not only mine but also people close to me. In 2014 I enrolled at the Australian Institute of Fitness completing my Master Trainer Certification. I also obtained a diploma in Business. After graduating in July 2014 I wasted no time and jumped straight into training people in the local park! I have slowly expanded my facility along the way, and now train out of a fully equipped massive shed! I have created an atmosphere of empowerment and positivity that promotes healthy lifestyle and is impacting the lives of many! The first step is often the hardest, lets take it together.
