I use to think I could exercise off my bad diet by training harder and longer the next day (paying for my sins in a way) and that worked well up until I turned 38, where I discovered I had love handles, back fat and cellulite down my legs….yuck!
At 5″2, weighing 64kg with 24% body fat, something had to change! I joined the CHPC through the recommendation of a friend with the idea of entering into a body building comp before I turned 40 (my first bucket list idea) and I have never looked back!
Under the watchful eye of level 3 coach Nick Moen I’ve lost 10kg weighing in at 54kg and dropped down to 8.5% body fat (down from 17.6%). I entered my first bodybuilding comp where I placed 2nd in Figure first timers, 5th open Novice and 3rd in my height category! Boom!!!
If you’re serious about a healthy lifestyle, looking and feeling great then I highly recommend CHPC! Word of warning though (to your prospective partners) you may get a little “hangry” (hungry and angry) leading up to a competition but the rewards certainly outweigh the sacrifices. Nothing tastes better than fitting into a size 6 pair of jeans especially when your previous size was almost a 12!.
