Before Steve started ‘doing it in 12’ he had never lifted weights before, his 1 rep max is now 50k for bench press and 90kg for deadlift – not to shabby for someone who hadn’t lifted a barbell before! Not only has Steve seen these amazing results but he has also learned how exercise and healthy eating can be part of his life forever. After all, a healthy body is for life not just for 12 weeks…..

Stephen is only 9 weeks into his journey but we just had to shout about what he has achieved already, over 5% body fat, nearly 10kg lost (that’s 20 x 500g bags of sugar…wow!) and almost 50cm (20 inches in old money) is phenomenal! In fact we’ve had to revise his targets as he has already nearly achieved what he originally set out to achieve! Well done Steve!

Karen Boyle

Before After Do It In 12
Weight 10st 10lb 9st 9lb
BMI 24.45 21.87
Waist 32” 29”
Inches Lost 20.5
% Body Fat 22.9% 17.49%

When Karen first started the Do It In 12 Programme, her focus wasn’t on the aesthetic goals but more focused on her energy levels and how long she could run for

Karen really took to fine tuning her already good nutrition, but she really impressed Ieuan and herself with her motivation and capabilities with her training. She came into it wanting to get into running but came out of it with a new found love for resistance training and shaping the body. Her words on finishing the program were “I got so much out of it that I didn’t even realise I wanted”.

Considering there were no primary weight loss or body related goals Karen achieved way more than she initially wanted. Well Done, awesome work Karen!

Erene H

Weight 57kg 56kg
BMI 21 20
Waist 25” 23.5”
Inches Lost 9 3/4
% Body Fat 26.1% 22.4%

When Erene first contacted the motive8 North personal training team I remember being shocked – she already looked in amazing shape but Erene’s motivation for joining the Do It In 12 Programme was to increase her energy and get her exercise mojo back.

Erene explained that she used to love exercise but had lost her passion for it and felt that doing the Do It In 12 programme would help her to regain her motivation and become healthier and more energetic again. The Do It In 12 programme has certainly got her back on track…..

– Erene has recently smashed her personal best at the 5k park run.

– She is lifting heavier and is proof that girls who lift do not turn into the incredible hulk – she looks great.

– Her body fat is lower, revealing those abs

– And she has more energy and is in a great routine of exercising 3-4 times per week.

Well done Erene!
