Hi my name is Gemma, I started Pinchaninch bootcamp at the start of January 2012 and weighed around 16 stone. I’d tried loads of fad diets, exercise dvds etc but nothing ever lasted longer than a week. Id always thought about bootcamps but I just never had the confidence to actually go to one. I was so unhappy with myself and knew i had to change – something just clicked in my head and i have never looked back! I googled ‘Sunderland Bootcamps’ and Darren’s was the first one the came up, so i thought i’d give it a go. So i turned up for bootcamp, on the coldest, wettest, muddiest, darkest night ever and i was instantly addicted (even though i couldnt move for 3 days after). I started going as often as i could and soon the weight started to drop off. Of course i was watching what i ate and cut all the rubbish out. I felt happier, became fitter and my body was changing massively. I was so pleased with myself that i had the confidence to go as it was such a big thing for me. Darren put me at ease and i never once felt uncomfortable. Bootcamp really made me carry on and helped me concentrate on my weight loss. So i decided to do the 28 Day challenge in June 2012 as i felt i needed educating on the food side of things. In 28 days i lost another 12lb and i learnt A LOT. It’s now August 2012 and i weigh just over 11 stone. I am the happiest i have ever been for years and i now have the confidence to go out and do things where before i didnt’ I go up to 5 sessions per week and love it! i am completely addicted, it’s so much fun, never do the same thing! I have met a great bunch of friends. It is the best thing i have ever done and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks Pinchaninch, changed my life! x
‘BOOT CAMPERS TAKE ON THE WORLD WITH ANTI-OXIDANTS’
Most Boot campers have heard of Antioxidants at some point in their lives but do you really know what they are and what they do to us physically?
‘De stress with Magnesium and Balance your Body’
As your personal trainer will always tell you Magnesium is a mineral needed by every cell in the human body. It’s required for more than 300 biochemical reactions taking place within each and every one of us. Around half of the body’s magnesium is found inside the cells of body tissues and organs, and half is combined with calcium and phosphorus in bone.
But did you know? Magnesium could help you melt body fat and improve boot camp training in no time. Your body requires magnesium so that it can absorb and utilize nutrients. Without magnesium it’s impossible to shift those extra layers of fat. Magnesium improves protein synthesis so eating a high protein diet is great for overall fat loss. low levels of magnesium in the body means you’ll crave more food and therefore put on weight!
