Vanessa got the body of her dreams – even with an underactive thyroid and in the peri-menopause!

Reach Success Stories

Vanessa got the body of her dreams, DESPITE an underactive thyroid and menopause!

Reach Group PT and 1-2-1 Nutrition Coaching client, Vanessa, lost 3 stone got the body of her dreams – even with an underactive thyroid and going through the menopause.

“My experience of going through the menopause along with an under active thyroid was no different to others making progress who didn’t have these health issues. I trained 2-3 times a week, focused on my nutrition and two thirds of my weight came off pretty quickly (which had never happened before), and my body was toned like I’d never seen”.

Prior to training with Reach, Vanessa was spending 2 hours at a time doing cardio workouts, focusing on burning calories, without really getting anywhere.

After seeing her friend’s results with Reach, she decided to join to see if it would work for her. 

The key points that we focused on with Vanessa on were:

  • Training shouldn’t be about burning calories.
  • She didn’t need to be working for the entire session in order to get results. Rest between sets was new to her and took some adjusting to.
  • Fat Loss and Weight Loss are interlinked but are not the same thing.
  • Nutrition is key for fat loss.

Vanessa picked up the training and nutrition principles almost immediately and made exceptionally fast progress. We always work with each individual client to ensure that they are working at a rate that’s suitable and sustainable for their ability and mindset. Vanessa just wanted to “smash it” from day one and her non-nonsense, positive mindset helped her to lose 3 stone in 3 months and get the body of her dreams!

She was then able to ease off and learn how to maintain it whilst having more freedom for social and family events.

In Vanessa’s words:

“It’s been a life changer for me. My body shape, mood – I feel absolutely great. My clothes feel fab on again. You will absolutely love it! The coaches have a wealth of knowledge and you’ll be doing things the right way which is personalised for you. The cost of it is worth it’s weight in gold for what you will get from the sessions. You can still have a good time and feel great!  2 years on, I’m still in a place where I make good and healthy meal choices but also have wiggle room for days/nights out!”

In this video, Vanessa talks about doing hours & hours of cardio without getting results, and how training with Reach has enabled her to work smarter, not harder!
