In 2008 & 2012, I ran the London marathon. Fast forward three years and I had become obese and had very low motivation and self esteem. Having always been very fit and active in the past, feeling this low mentally and physically was very unfamiliar territory to me. I was going home from work, falling asleep on the sofa because I just had absolutely no motivation in me. My low self confidence meant that I started to lose touch with friends and lacked even the smallest of motivation to make the effort with friends and family.
During January 2018, I took notice of Chris’s daily motivational Fitness video’s on YouTube and the Facebook posts he was putting out. Having known of Chris, I thought maybe he could be the one to help me and give me a kick start back into shape. I contacted Chris to meet up to see if he could and would help me. I decided to sign up for six weeks of life coaching and fitness guidance and advice. Even after our initial consultation Chris made me feel buzzing and so motivated to get started.
As a proud man, I was not being honest with myself and I was also keeping all the stress to myself inside and certainly not feeling like I was able to talk to other people about how I was feeling. After the first week of Life Coaching sessions with Chris, I opened up more to my wife about how I actually felt about myself, than I have ever done before.
Chris quickly recognised that my Motivation, Confidence & Positivity were hugely linked to my low levels of Health & Fitness. He immediately started me on a tailored health and fitness programme, along with specific diet plans. He also asked me to discuss my life goals with my family, as home work. I looked forward to my weekly Life Coaching and Fitness sessions with Chris. He enabled me to totally change my own mindset and I felt so positive.
Over the next six weeks I started to notice my physique changing but more importantly, my motivation and confidence were coming back. Now fast forward 6 weeks and I’m now able to run 4 miles ‘non-stop’ and I feel so positive again. I’ve even shedded over 1 1/4 stone in body weight, in just 35 days. Bearing in mind when I first met Chris, I struggled to walk fast, without getting out of breath.
Chris, I really can’t thank you enough buddy as I would still be sat on that sofa falling asleep, getting obese, if it wasn’t for you.
For anyone who is in the same situation as I was or you are thinking about signing up for any of the Life Coaching or Fitness, I can’t recommend Chris from OAX Life Coaching highly enough – you will absolutely not regret it!
I feel positive and know that I am on a long journey, but one that I am so excited to be embarking upon.
I now have targets that I have set myself for this year and the next. I’m still continuing the journey with Chris and I feel more motivated than ever. Chris has not only been my coach but he has become a true friend, where he continually demonstrates how much he cares by the messages and posts he sends to me.
Thanks again Chris, you’re a top man and as the journey continues, I’m already looking forward to our next session.
