“Some time ago, I decided that I would become a vegetarian. I bought an expensive juicer, and religiously juiced carrots, apples, beetroot, etc EVERY day. I did Astanga yoga 3 times a week and other forms of exercise, and thought I was doing all the right things to lose weight and try to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I had had a few problems with pain in my lower back and after some time, had to stop yoga as it seemed to exacerbate the problem. I did all this because I was losing a battle with gaining weight and feeling miserable about my body which seemed to regularly break down with pulled muscles etc.
Then I met up with Stephen, and after a thorough Q and A session, decided to try Metabolic Typing along with personal training sessions. I was relieved when I was told which Metabolic Type I am and went from a veggie/juice diet back to eating protein and combining it with all the other suggested foods. The personal training sessions helped me a lot and especially enjoyed the PowerPlate! I found out what core muscles are, and that has helped enormously with my back problem!
I have now lost over 6 kilos and am able to maintain my new weight without struggling to do so. The other marvellous thing is that I have lost cellulite which I was smitten with – who would have thought?”
“I have a business and a family and time is precious and I do a lot of exercise but I have really benefitted from Stephen constantly reinforcing the need for damn good technique.
Every exercise we do the aim is do it as correct as possible. I do not have the time to exercise for hours every single day so it is important to me that my workouts are effective and therefore time efficient, when you don’t feel the right muscles working because you are doing the wrong exercises for you or the right ones but in the wrong way you are wasting your time.
My bum and tummy muscles are now tight by taking the time to get things done the right way. I also appreciate that more and more exercise and less and less calories are another waste of time.
Stephen put me through the Metabolic Typing® nutrition system and I now know I need fat and I know I need to eat often. But I also know that if life gets in the way and I miss a workout I know how to eat to make the most of my time and when I do get to workout I can make the most of it. This way I get far less stressed and can much more easily stay on track. Stephen always says that there is a balance to be struck between fitness and nutrition and his system has helped me really get that.”
“Since training with you I’m in the best shape of my life… and I’m 64!”
