" MY PERCEPTION OF COMPETING HAS BEEN POSITIVELY INFLUENCED "
Lerry competed in her first show in April. Unfortunately she had no guidance post show with regards to how to adapt her training and nutrition. She binged uncontrollably for a few weeks and then suffered from extreme body dysmorphia and got into a binge and restricted diet cycle.
She knew that she couldn’t get out of this cycle on her own and after finding TeamLRF on Instagram, Lerry joined and started coaching with Coach Lowri
Support and proper guidance makes a difference...
“Initially it was extremely challenging for me to allow myself to eat more food and see the scale weight go up. It was very scary and I felt out of control. Having Lowri guide me through it was more than I could’ve ever asked for. She was super supportive and reassured me whenever I doubted the process.
A changed mindset...
“Absolutely everything with regards to my fitness journey has changed since joining the team and working with Lowri. My knowledge around food and the benefits of an off season. My self- talk and self-image. My perception of competing has been positively influenced and I’m enjoying training and working towards goals again!
During my reverse diet, I have gained muscle, my mindset has improved enormously and my interactions with others in and out the gym have also improved - because I no longer feel ashamed and out of control. I know that we have a plan of action and that I’m supported every step of the way to reach those goals.”
The benefits of working with a coach...
“During my time working with Lowri, I’ve learnt how important it is to speak openly to coach about what you’re feeling - and that doing so will always lead to you feeling calmer and more sure of yourself and the journey you’re on. I’ve also learnt how important it is to have a coach that you feel 100% comfortable with.”
