Aimee was recommended to me by a work colleague a couple of years ago as I wanted to lose some weight and get fitter. I had always thought I wouldn’t be able to find a way to exercise that worked for me as I had had both knees operated on after a motorbike accident, and I suffered from bulging lumbar vertebrae which caused me lower back pain. Since the motorbike accident I hadn’t been able to run due to knee pain, and for many years stairs were difficult and I walked with a stick. I also had a crush injury to my left hand which meant my grip was poor.
Training with Aimee was inspirational, she always made me feel that I could do everything and I quickly started to see results due to the combination of physical training and nutritional support. Among the biggest benefits were a reduction in body fat from 24% to 17.5%, feeling toned and energetic, more stability in my knees, less back pain and a general renewed interest in exercise and it’s benefits.
Last year I entered the London Marathon ballot as I felt that if I felt I couldn’t run, then a marathon would be a good challenge! So I got my place for London last October, and started a training programme running alongside my gym sessions which were now tailored to support my running. I ran the London marathon last month, which was great fun, and I’ve loved running so much I’ve entered an Ultra Marathon this month! I now run about 25-35 miles every week, and still train at the gym twice a week, I’ve stayed injury free throughout my training due to careful planning and structured sessions and would highly recommend IPT and Aimee to anyone who really wants to see results.
