After seeing the positive effects that Eoin, Phil and Dean had on my wife’s fitness and general well-being I wanted in. I was settling into the dad bod too easily and enjoying my nightly tube of Pringles and bars of chocolate but enough was enough, it was time to take control of my body again. Meeting the team at the opening of EMF 2.0, I knew that their infectious personalities would drive me to better myself.
I tried the big bad gyms where my interest in going waned after a few weeks as boredom crept in. Previous experiences would suggest this would happen to me at EMF as well but it couldn’t be further from the truth. I look forward to each class, to seeing what PB or new exercise the team would throw at me and the monthly challenges. I’ve enjoyed testing and sometimes exceeding what I thought I was capable of.
I have more energy than I have done in years. I can now fit into clothes that I moved to the back of wardrobe years ago with dreams of one day fitting again. My weight and body fat is down, muscle mass up and as an asthmatic who has struggled the past 2 years my peak flow is higher than it ever has been. I attribute this to pushing beyond my capabilities as Eoin, Phil and Dean believe in me.
My biggest accomplishment since starting this journey was discovering that I could touch my toes!
I’m happier in my skin and much more confident. I’m enjoying the extra energy I now have and my sponsorship deal with Under Armour!
I’d have no hesitation in recommending a friend or indeed a stranger to join EMF. The instructors are knowledgeable, tell the odd good joke, are masters of extracting energy from you and keeping things fresh by regularly introducing new exercises. The other clients are great fun and there is a real ‘we are in this together’ spirit.
