“My journey started with Courtney in September 2020 after seeing her videos on Facebook. I knew I had to do something, as I had gained back all the weight I lost and I was not getting any exercise, with the gyms being closed due to COVID. After my initial consultation I decided to sign a six-month contract. I thought, it can’t be that hard right? I am committed and focused and nothing is going to get me down, was I in for a surprise! This journey has been one of the hardest things I have ever done, that I will admit, but I don’t regret one single second. There were days that I cried in the car after a session from pure exhaustion, days where I couldn’t move properly because everything hurt and days where I thought, why am I doing this to myself? What I didn’t realise was that I was actually the luckiest person in the world to have met Courtney! She is the most humble, down-to-earth, caring person I have ever met. Some days I was so down that I just started crying, but Courtney was always there to pick me up. She has my back, through the good and the bad days. She makes time to listen to me and motivates me to push even harder when I don’t believe in myself. On weigh-in days when I am not happy with my progress, Courtney says “I will celebrate your victories for you”. We laugh and cry together, but together we conquer! Although I sometimes don’t want to admit it, I know that I am healthier and stronger than I’ve ever been, and its all because of her. Thank you Courtney, from the bottom of my heart, for always being there for me and for being my inspiration, my trainer and my friend”.
