I have been a highly competitive athlete my whole life. Soccer was my passion and I continued playing at the Varsity level throughout my undergrad degree. I knew my way around the gym, and I was pretty knowledgeable about how and what to train in order to compete at my best. But after I completed my degree, I was left with a wide open schedule, where I would have usually been practicing or playing games. It was at this time that I decided I wanted to continue pursuing fitness, but instead of training to be faster, quicker and stronger, I wanted to train for my own aesthetic appeal. I was never over weight, in fact I have always been very fit, but I just didn't look quite the way I desired. This I learned was mostly connected to my nutritional habits. I ate what ever I wanted as an athlete and never really suffered the consequences, but I never got the results I wanted either.
This is when Noel came in and changed the way I see fitness and health! I gave her a realistic goal that I wanted to look like, which was a more muscular, leaner version of myself. She set me up with a training and nutrition program that completely changed me. Her knowledge of clean eating and macro programming completely blew my mind - no wonder I never got any results. I wasn't eating enough protein, my fats and carbs were too high and I most certainly wasn't drinking enough water!
Noel was completely open and honest with me that for me to be successful I would have to undergo a lifestyle change, and that there was no "quick fixes". I was already on the leaner side and therefore my program required me to be pretty strict. But as the months progressed, I saw changes in my body and I became completely addicted to the process.
I am absolutely grateful and ecstatic about the results I got! I know now that I would have never been able to get to where I am right now and maintain my body if it hadn't of been for the knowledge Noel passed on and helped coach me through. I've learnt that nutrition is everything! And the workout programming I received completely changed my view as well. I know now I don't have to run for hours and deplete myself of all my energy doing so.
I can't say enough good things about Noel and the journey I went through with her! Thank you:)
Thank you for letting me be a part of your journey, Kara.
