When you have nothing to lose but the weight, what are you waiting for?

Rikus Lategan

Rikus works out at the Durban North Body 20 at Glenore. Here is his story in his own words:

“I initially joined Body20 on a 12 week makeover package. The package included everything I needed. With the help of their Nutrition Doctor I received a personalized meal plan based on my In body assessment, I also get to track my results weekly before my session which keeps me focused on my goals. The workouts are like no other, my personal trainer focuses on my needs and I always walk out after a session feeling like I’m another step closer to achieving my goals. Everyone at Body20 Glenore is extremely friendly and welcoming.

“Needless to say after my 12 weeks, I didn’t stop. Body20 fits into my busy schedule. 20 minutes twice a week is all I need.

“Not only did I lose 19 kgs in my first 12 weeks, but I have watched my knee get stronger (old rugby injury) and see my range of motion improve drastically. At Body20 Glenore I’m not just another number, I am part of the Body20 family.”

 

Sue Wilkinson from Johannesburg

Sue Wilkinson only gradually became aware of her health problems associated with obesity. “At first I didn’t notice anything,” says the 36-year-old. “I knew I was getting increasingly unhealthy, but there was no alarm bell ringing in my ears and no flash-light signalling trouble ahead.”

However, the symptoms of her unhealthy lifestyle soon began to mount: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, back pain and constant heartburn. “I started taking anti-anxiety meds. My weight began suffocating every aspect of my life. The more weight I put on the more I covered my personality.”

Her rapidly deteriorating health finally spurred Sue into action. “For years I kept telling myself that one day I’ll lose weight to be able to wear normal sized clothes again.” She often looked at outfits on Pinterest, but failed to find the courage make a change. Then, one day, amidst the warnings from her doctor, something just clicked.

“I woke up and said today is the day I am doing something!” Sue overhauled her grocery cupboard filled with convenience foods and started shopping for healthier alternatives. She didn’t follow a diet, preferring instead to call it her “finding the balance” journey.

Some of her greatest supporters came from Body20, a studio offering Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology. “I was so incredibly unfit when I started with them. I remember shaking like a leaf before my demo because I was nervous having done no exercise for almost 10 years.”

After her demo, she felt amazing, though. “The trainers at Body20 made me feel at ease and there was no judgement whatsoever. They told me I could do it, celebrated every kilo I lost and pushed me when I need pushing.”

Sue explains that she never really had an end goal in mind. “I just decided to become healthier and set mini goals for myself along the way.”

Reflecting on her journey, Sue still cannot believe the unhealthy weight she was carrying around. “It made me open my eyes and see, with no filters, just how unhealthy I was. In a strange way, it was this realisation has kept me motivated. Each day I become more and more comfortable in my own skin.”

Alta O’Kelly

“Tannie Alta” O’Kelly began using the Body 20 system when she started her transformation on the 24th of August 2017, weighing in at a starting weight of 104,7kg.

Despite living in Uvongo, Alta made the effort to travelled once, sometimes twice, a week to Durban for her Body20 sessions.

In addition to the exercising, she has also, in the last six months made changes to her diet. In total, she has now lost 19,4kg.

“Tannie Alta” underwent a knee replacement in 2017, and used to suffer severe discomfort and found her daily activities a struggle.

“Since working out at Body20 she has strengthened her knees and the supporting muscles groups around it. It’s a pleasure watching her conquer the stairs outside the gym with ease,” said Michael Meyer of Body 20 Glenore, Durban North.
