“For ages, I had seen pictures on Facebook and heard about emf in Blarney but when January 2017 came round and Eoin was doing a health and nutrition talk in the GAA I decided to attend.
It was there and then I decided I wanted to get my life back and lose all this extra weight I was carrying around since my son was born(8 years ago). I also knew I had my son’s holy communion the following year in may 2018 which was my goal to decide to work towards.
When I walked into emf for the first time and looked around I was delighted not to see a treadmill or ‘typical’ gym equipment as I have tried and failed with that before and found it boring.
I never knew other types of exercise could be done without that type equipment but I loved it. It made exercise short, fun and interesting.
I love going to emf, it’s never boring, never a chore or a dull moment. Love the atmosphere and the support you receive is second to none.
So far I’m down 23kg with I’m thrilled about and sometimes when I walk past a mirror I have to look for a second time and say’ feck it, I actually have a jaw’ 😂 my son Kian loves now that he can wrap his arms around my waist and I’m definitely able to keep up with him more.
I also love my new found strength like for instance when lifting a bucket of coal before I’d literally have to run from the back into the house to drop it but now it’s no problem.
I’m definitely more positive and happy. Never feel out of breath anymore and feel so bloody strong I’m delighted. The atmosphere is fantastic, the trainers are fantastic. There is so much support. I love the people I train with and have made so many great friends. I’ve learned to love exercise again and so can anyone.”
