Barry’s Health and Fitness Overhaul

Uber Shape was recommended to Barry by a mate. Barry wanted a shake-up and some motivation for his fitness and health but didn’t really want to go sign up to a stereotypical gym environment, later on finding out Uber Shape is quite different… Let’s see what he has to say…

“I had a really poor perception of gyms and was in two minds as to if I should come to a gym. After speaking with a friend,  he suggested that Uber Shape might be a good spot to come along too. Reluctantly I came along and loved it from the get-go. ”

“I got to a point where I used to train at home, it was heading into Christmas, I was feeling a little bit podgy.” Barry started training with Uber Shape just over 4 months ago and we have seen some amazing changes.

Hard Work Pays Off

Since training at Uber Shape, all the trainers have seen huge changes in Barry physically, from a drop in weight to muscle gain. Barry mentions that he has loved the mental changes, which he has felt the most.

“It’s been a really good circuit breaker for me and a great way to unload. When I do walk in the door of a night, I’m a better man. Mentally it has been a big improvement coming to Uber Shape.”

Barry trains with us 4-5 times per week. He also has Nutritional Plans which are done with Coach Coby.

“Since I have been training and eating more intentionally, I’ve seen myself drop a size in my pants. I’ve seen a big improvement in my stomach too, which has been very encouraging. When you see that progress it gives you that motivation to keep going.”

Barry says his biggest success has been in his own kitchen, Coach Coby’s Nutritional Plans explain what to eat and highlighting the importance of prioritising being organised.

“I’ve become a bit more intentional with my planning.” His work life requires lunches out with Clients. “When I do work lunches I try to eat healthy before and after and also eating better foods now and drinking less alcohol.”

Great work to Barry for all his hard work and dedication to training and healthy eating. As trainers, it has been fantastic to watch him progress and enjoy the ride.

“It’s a great community, trainers are all switched on, fantastic and encouraging and I do recommend Uber Shape to anyone that will listen to me.”

Jemma’s Booty Gains

Jemma has been attending our booty classes for 6 weeks now. Very quickly She realised what booty training should look like. “The training I used to do for my booty was probably nothing that I should do”.

Booty has a variety of booty strengthening and building exercises. “I like the fact that it has given me more shape and is more toned”.

There are so many favourite line ups within the booty class. “The thing I like most about booty class is the donkey kicks”.

The donkey kicks at Uber Shapes Booty Class consists of the ladies wearing ankle weights anywhere from 1-10kg. In a tri-set, they pump out 5-10 pumps and hold. It is usually a favourite.

Jemma usually free trains as she doesn’t love classes. “I’ve never really liked classes as I’ve felt that I’ve always been stuck in the class for an hour. This class isn’t like that. It’s really fun and everyone is really nice.”

Jemma found booty class through a friend, “biggest changes are that I have more energy and have more strength now”.

Coach Carol always surprises everyone with a cracker of a workout that leaves your butt burning. “I’ve found Carol to be a really good Coach, it’s really tough but that’s what you need.”

Each week the booty class builds from the week before which is great for long term members. “I find each class does progress…it gets harder and more challenging. I had never used a booty band before or exercised that before.”

New members have the option to use light weights so it can suit anyone needs.

When asking Jemma why she would recommend Booty to other people she said to”Get some shape, something different and meet new people.”

Rhonda’s Senior Training Journey

Rhonda is the best example that age is no barrier when walking into a gym. With the right trainer and right programs, strength training is one of the best things you can do for your body.

Due to being told that Rhonda was in need a partial knee replacement, Rhonda started researching other ways to restore her body.

A big gym was never where she was looking to go as she didn’t want to be another number. “Big gyms can be impersonal, and you don’t feel like you matter, at Uber Shape everyone matters.”

After already trying physio, she found Uber Shape through a general search online. “I couldn’t walk very far without a stick, I had trouble bending my knee. Now I am back to a couple of years ago. My strength has improved tremendously and the same with my balance.”

Rhonda’s Training Schedule

Her training plan is 2 half an hour sessions each week with Coach Carol, which is enough plus is cost effective. “It’s like turning back the clock”, Rhonda laughs. The main areas that Rhonda has seen results in are… “firstly my knee; secondly, my overall strength and thirdly is my appearance I guess…..you get definition where you lost it.”

Rhonda loves coming in and having her sessions explicitly planned for herself and not having to think. “Over 60 you really should be using your muscles if you don’t want them to deteriorate.”

Rhonda is always happy to come into training and is beaming after her session. “It’s like a family atmosphere, exactly what I was looking for.”

Coach Carol has been training Rhonda for over a year now, and we have seen significant changes. From her face inflammation, posture, confidence, to body composition. Every fortnight her weights and hold times increase, which is just so cool. Rhonda used to struggle to plank for 10 seconds now she does well over 1 minute.

When asking Rhonda why she would recommend Uber Shape, her response was simple“If you’re looking for personal, it’s here.”

Kerry’s Lifestyle Transformation

“When I first walked into Uber Shape, I walked in with no expectation. Now I’m the fittest I have ever been in my life, and I’m 42 years old…. I’m going into the mother’s day run too.”

Noticeable changes

When Kerry first walked into the gym compared to now, it’s like two different people. She would cautiously pick up weights.  Would be a little uncertain how to hold her body and with no confidence that her body would willingly participate.

Now Kerry walks into the gym, confidently. Pumped up and laughing, ready for any and every session.

Kerry openly says that she didn’t have very much strength and that her whole body has changed. The best thing that hubby loves the new changes too. “My hubby is like,  look at those muscles….. [ and ] who are you and what have you done with my wife.”

Kerry’s accomplishments

“My body has transformed and my mind has transformed. Once I have worked out, I know I have to eat well for the day so I don’t wreck what I have done.”

Kerry has lost 40 kilos and worked out while she has done it keeping everything in shape. “I’ve got more toned, and shape and I’m a lot stronger in the legs. I didn’t have much muscle strength {insert Kerry flexing her muscles, haha}.

Kerry loves being pushed that extra mile by the trainers and feels that she couldn’t have done it alone. “Because I have done a little bit at a time and not have had too big of expectations. I had come such a long way from when I first started.”

The new lifestyle change has filtered through her whole family. “ I am so much more energised, and we do so much more than just sitting on the couch and lazing around.” Kerry also makes healthy choices for herself and her family.

“ We used to go to Macca’s 2-3 times a week…. I think it has been three months since we have been.” Now they have so much healthy fruit and veg they have to allocate more time for shopping. “I bought fruit and veg last week, and it took nearly an hour to put it away.”

Kerry trains 4-5 times per week and has a great group of girls around her that train hard and push each other along. We are all so proud of you Kerry; we can’t wait to see what this year brings for you.
