I would love to share my story and hope I can inspire just one person to make themselves a priority each and every day.

In September 2023, at the age of 59, I found myself at a critical juncture in my life. I had experienced two mini-strokes, was 20 kilos overweight, and received severe health warnings from both my GP and heart specialist. Despite these alarming signs, I was working 14-hour days, 7 days a week, caught in an endless cycle of stress and overwork.

During this challenging time, I was also dealing with chronic menopause and gut health issues, which only added to the strain on my body and mind. My internal dialogue was beyond ugly, filled with negativity and despair. It was clear I needed a drastic change to reclaim my health and happiness.

That’s when I turned to Vision in search of a new life filled with good health and purpose and to be matched with a trainer, I could be a dream team with, and I found exactly that in Stuart. What we have created together is more than just a fitness routine; it's a partnership built on trust, knowledge, friendship, and realistic goal setting. Even when life threw me grenades, Stuart was beyond understanding, shifting goalposts with great empathy and supporting me every step of the way.

Through our journey, I experienced small but significant shifts each week. My self-talk began to improve, my fitness levels increased, and my body's capabilities grew stronger. I learned about macros and how to apply this knowledge to my daily life. Starting as a size 18, I have transformed into a size 12 and each day I have a newfound love of life again.

Now, in May 2024, I have said a permanent goodbye to 11 kilos. My body shape has completely changed, my menopause symptoms are controllable, and my smile is back. The anger and sadness that once plagued me have left, and my blood tests show remarkable improvement.

I want to say with complete honesty that I cannot imagine my life without the Vision family and my dream team partner, Stuart, he is the best in his field for knowledge, and experience, He has a unique blend of expertise, empathy, and motivation. He possesses an in-depth knowledge of fitness, nutrition, and human physiology, enabling him to design personalized workout plans that cater to each of his client’s specific needs and goals. He has helped me turn my life around and for that I will be eternally grateful. So much love for the Vision Bangor family.
