"All Star Academy changed my life! In October 2015 I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and was told there was not much I could do about it. I decided to lose weight and get fit to beat it. A friend recommended All Star to me after great results for them. On the 9th November 2015 I began my journey, at that time I weighed over 20 stone and those first weeks were hard! On my first day I couldn't even do 1 burpee but Dom gave me alternatives and I worked through it, within a month I had dropped from a size XXXL to a XXL and I was chuffed then! It didn't stop here though, I kept going, 4 sessions a week and following Dom's guidance on nutrition and the inches just melted away, and I could do more and more as the weeks went on!
Come January 2016 and I decided to join an All Star team to take on the Major Series 10K Obstacle Course Race in the coming March. I was concerned with the distance I had to run because I hadn't run for 20 years! Not a problem for Dom, he added a short 1.5 mile run into my week and soon I stepped that up to 2 miles and then 3 miles, Dom ran with me every step of the way and it hurt at first but I got there. I found now that I loved running! I started running on my own and now I run for a running club! I race competitively 5K, 10K, 10 mile,road and trail races and in November I have my 1st ever half marathon, exactly 1 year on from joining All Star, oh and I am also a registered competitive athlete with England Athletics!
I have lost 6 stone, dropped 5 trouser sizes and I still 3 times a week train at All Star, I do 2 long training runs a week and also 1 speed session a week...oh and race in between! Dom has fine tuned my nutrition now for an athlete, (me!.
My goals when I joined was to lose weight and sort my nutrition out, and beat the diabetes. I did this with All Star and then I have pressed on. Not only has being a member got me to my goals it has given me more goals I could never dream of before! So, life changing doesn't sound so dramatic now! Oh and bear in mind this is only 9 months down the road!" *
