As a full time working Mum with two primary school kids, Bridgette's fitness transformation is truly inspiring. Motivated by setting an example for, and involving family in leading a healthy and active lifestyle, Bridgette was ticking the physical activity boxes, but was being held back and limited by her nutrition.
Already physically active prior to the challenge, the main change in Bridgette's approach to her fitness involved consistency, swapping quick easy meals for a planned and balanced diet. Already training 5-6 times per week and not seeing the results she was looking for, it didn't take long for Bridgette to notice a major change in her appearance, health and well being, as a result of putting the work into her nutrition, just like the hard work she was already putting in at the gym!
Bridgette began to ramp up the intensity of her physical activity, modifying her training to increase efficiency such as changing walking to running with her dog, and consistently performing resistance workouts three times per week. Once she began to plan and prepare her meals in advance in accordance to her body's macro-nutritional requirements, it didn't take long for Bridgette to realise that the quick and easy meals she was resorting to in the past simply didn't contain enough protein!
It didn't take long for Bridgette's bloating to become a thing of the past, and for her energy and vitality to increase with noticeable differences in the mirror and on the scales. Once her body got used to its new regime, she began to crave the healthy and nutritionally balanced meals she had begun to master in the kitchen, leading to an overwhelming change in not only her body composition, but her mental wellbeing. Increased confidence, fitness and vitality worked hand in hand with support from ASN staff and the online community to provide a forum to share her story with others on a similar journey, to deliver an amazing result and experience.
Bridgette found the challenge enjoyable because she was able to apply it to the style of training she enjoyed, and incorporate it into her lifestyle to compliment it, rather than it being a chore.
Bridgette trained up to 8 times per week! Utilizing a combination of boxing, running with her dog, resistance training and HIIT, favouring early morning workouts, or exercising at the gym while her son practiced martial arts.
With her supplement cabinet stocked with Evolve Lipo Whey for a delicious, lean source of protein that boosts the body's fat metabolism through thermogenesis, with her fat loss complimented and enhanced by Carnitine RX. Bridgette also included Alpha Venus for a healthy hormone balance, and her favourite supplement of all was our best selling Casein Custard, satisfying her sweet tooth while providing a slow trickle release of muscle building amino acids to prevent muscle catabolism and enhance recovery overnight.
At the end of the 10 week challenge, Bridgette lost an incredible 7kg, and 7% body fat! Bridgette is loving her increased energy and body confidence, as well as the improvements to her strength both in and out of the gym, and her cardiovascular endurance. Her success has motivated her husband to follow suit, and she plans to continue her journey to lose another 4% body fat to reach her goal of 20%.
Rather than falling back into old habits. Bridgette is taking what she learnt from the 10 Week challenge to make sustainable long term changes to both her and her family's lifestyles! Well done Bridgette, and you look as amazing as you feel!
