As a busy woman juggling a full-time job and family commitments, 64 year old Maureen was finding it difficult to get healthy so when she saw the television advertisement for the Get Healthy Service, she decided to give them a call.
Right from the start Maureen found her coach to be very supportive, advising her on small changes that would make a big difference. He continued to support her, and gave advice even when she faced temptations and challenges with her painful knee.
"He was committed to improving my health and progress, which was really refreshing. His attitude energised me and pushed me to try harder,” she said.
Weighing 75kg when she started the Get Healthy Service, Maureen has since incorporated small changes into her diet. “My coach gave me some great tips such as swapping my full-fat milk for light, eating smaller portion sizes and eating more fruit and vegetables every day”, Maureen said. With her newfound energy, Maureen now goes for a walk at least five days a week.
Thanks to the advice and motivation offered by the Service, Maureen’s waist size has decreased from 94cm to 81cm and she has lost a total of 8kg.
“It wasn’t just the advice on changing my diet, it was the moral support as well. The coaching not only helped me shed the weight but it also helped me develop a more positive attitude towards life. Diet tips can be taken from any health magazine or website, but having a Get Healthy coach just takes it to a whole other level.”
“I now make time for myself in between working a full-time job and running a household. I feel more alive, with more energy to put into my commitments and to my family. Being a part of the Get Healthy program allowed me to start getting healthy. The rest is history,” she added.
The Service was tailored to her personal circumstances, so convenient and easy, Maureen recommends it to all her friends.
