Clodagh - "I’m constantly amazed at what my body can achieve and how determined I can be".

“Two years ago, I couldn’t bear the thoughts of having my picture, hence the blurry “before image”. . When I started with Anna @The Stables I was a size 26, very unfit Type II Diabetic.  I’m now knocking on the door of a size 16, I play rugby and powerlift, I’ve done Hell & Back and the Mark Pollock Run in the Dark and, most significantly, I have completely reversed my Diabetes. I’m constantly amazed at what my body can achieve and how determined I can be.

When I decided to turn my health around, initially I started personal training sessions with Anna & Ger and then I moved onto the bootcamps, which I continue to attend regularly.  Without a doubt, I wouldn’t be where I am without the help and support of Anna & her team. From our very first meeting to today she has been completely non judgemental, supportive and professional. That first time that you sign up is a very daunting and difficult step but she couldn’t have made it easier. Without that encouragement, I could very easily have walked away. I have never once felt that I would fail. My confidence has grown immeasurably.

Everyone is welcome @ The Stables, from the complete beginner to the more advanced athlete and what’s hugely important to me is that every session is different, Boredom is definitely not an issue!  Being able to work outdoors when the weather permits is fantastic and the gym is down a tree lined avenue, out of the eye of the public, comforting if you’re nervous to start with, like I was. I’ve also made great friends which is an added bonus!

I’m not saying it was easy, you still have to put the work in to get results, but if you’re going to succeed anywhere, it’s here @ The Stables. Do your body and your mind a favour and take that first step, you won’t regret it.”
