I began training with Clean Health in June this year. I decided that I was ready for a challenge and needed some motivation in my life, so with the help of sponsored athlete Lilly I was able to get into contact with Clean Health.
My first point of contact was with Jes Murphy, who talked me through the different training programs and options I could undertake; and with some encouragement from her I decided to dive straight in and train for a fitness modelling competition. She recommended that I train with Neli and after one session I could already tell I was going to love it! Neli is always sure to push me hard and keep me going and she always makes sure I’m coping ok. I’ve had moments where I wanted to stop, give up or not push hard and a lot of the time I complain and whinge, but Neli has always been so supportive and has always been sure to remind me of why I started by saying “but don’t you want to be lean!?”
Both Neli and Jes have had to deal with my severe lack of memory and information retention and my thousands of questions on a daily basis; and neither of them have ever made me feel guilty about it.
After only about 4 months of training and dieting, Neli had me stage ready for my first competition where I placed in both my divisions, winning my open class. From there I competed again 3 weeks later, again placing in both my divisions and picking up a sponsorship from Australian Sports Nutrition at Castle Hill.
I have had a fantastic and very successful first season and I owe most of that to Neli. I had such a great time on this whole journey and I can truly say I’ve found a new passion. Thanks to all the team at Clean Health for their amazing support and guidance and especially to my trainer Neli for being my coach and also my friend.
I would strongly recommend Clean Health to anyone who was interested in competing but also just to anyone who wants to make a change in their life. I cannot wait to do it all over again next year! Watch out for team Neli!
