32-year-old Samantha Gibson from Newcastle lost 23.6lbs in time for her once-in-a-life-time Vegas wedding! With a 4 stone goal in mind, Samantha has no worries about getting in the best shape of her life.
Newly-wed Samantha had already bought her wedding dress which did originally fit her perfectly, however, wanting to lose some weight and feel more confident in her gorgeous white dress - Samantha had to pull the corset of the dress in as tight as it would go on the day.
“I lost 23.6lbs with transform and although I have put some of my weight back from Vegas indulgence, I am in a smaller dress size and I am a lot more toned than I have ever been. I have always struggled with my weight and find it difficult to lose weight as I have polycystic ovaries.”
Seeing and hearing the results of elite: Transform, Samantha was eventually persuaded to join the challenge in June 2019 just 8 weeks before her wedding day!
“I struggled at first as I had not exercised since before, I fell pregnant, and since having my little boy I have found little time for myself. As the sessions went on, I could feel myself getting strong both physically and mentally which meant that I could push myself harder each session. The diet was hard for me at first because I just used to grab anything convenient but the more I prepped the more it just became a part of my routine and I found it much easier to prep the night before for the following day that way I wasn’t tempted to pick at anything. I am a pretty picky eater, but I found it easy to find something I liked every day and the trainers were very helpful with anything that I couldn’t eat and gave me substitutes for this.
Transform gave me the ability to make better choices in everyday life about the foods that I eat. I have made some good friends along the way and I love the feeling I get after every class. I have now switched to a lunchtime class and come down on my lunch hour I feel that it gives me the energy to take on the afternoon especially if my morning hasn’t been the best. The trainers are absolutely superb and the support you receive is second-to-none. You are made to feel like part of the elite family every time you enter the gym.
My biggest motivation in all of this was feeling that I was getting myself back. I feel that before I hid away from things and my confidence was really quite low. I am very proud in how far I have come, and I can’t wait to continue my journey with elite: Newcastle – I have just signed up for 12 months with them and I can’t wait to see where I will be in 12 months’ time.
The meal plan is absolutely delicious. This was always the sticking point for me in the past as being a fussy eater I couldn’t have stomached the diet as it was in previous years. I feel that the diet plan is very varied and really easy to follow.
After completing Transform I reinvested my money into elite: Evolve for 10 weeks and paid an additional £70 to double that time. I went away to get married and I knew I would slip back to old habits if I didn’t carry on going. I have now just signed up to the Black Friday deal as this is a fantastic opportunity and makes it a lot more affordable for me.
If I had to describe elite: Transform in 3 words, I'd say: Inspirational. Intense. Exhilarating.
I would 100% recommend Transform to anyone who needs that push in the right direction as it’s not just the push you receive but a shove and after that there no going back as like me you will become hooked.
Thank you elite: Newcastle!”
