Lost 69kg, ran a marathon and got healthy enough to fall pregnant!
Amy went from not being able to run a km to running a marathon along the Warburton trail within 12 months! She now also holds most of our wall of fame records for the strongest female training at Assist Personal Training.
Dreams…they can come true.
Throughout the many challenges I’ve done with Assist PT, I’ve been asked to identify what my 12 Week goals are. My goal was always strong and it wasn’t necessarily anything I wanted to achieve by the end of those 12 weeks, it was my ultimate life goal.
I wanted to be a Mum.
My IVF journey started even before I set foot through the Assist PT doors.
It has been a very long and very emotional journey. A journey spanning almost 4 years.
Since joining Assist I’ve lost 69kg and over 250cm but it’s what I’ve gained that has been so significant.
I’ve gained belief in myself, a positive attitude and a true inner happiness.
On the 22 May 2017, I received the news I had been dreaming about for so long. I was going to be a Mum…all my hard work getting fit and healthy had paid off.
Today I had my 20 week scan and got to see my little miracle. And what a beautiful miracle it is ❤️.
Seeing those 10 tiny fingers and 10 tiny toes today has given me even more incentive to continue to live a healthy and happy life and to continue to put everything I have learned into practice.
Don’t ever give up on your dreams.
My dream seemed unreachable and unattainable but here I am living proof that dreams really can come true.
Staying accountable to a professional is undeniably the key – and the big difference for me is the level of care you’ve given me. I’ve worked with people before where the care was missing. Not the case with you guys…thank you x
Amy is also our Overhaul Champion!

Matt and Annette,
I drove home from work tonight and I cried again… I’ve done a lot of that over the last couple of days.
I’m so overwhelmed, proud and happy by what I’ve been able to achieve lately, and over the past 2 1/2 years since coming into contact with you guys.
I’m starting to look at 69kg of weight loss as a secondary achievement because things I’ve been able to do feel like the real achievement (which wouldn’t have happened without the weight loss though) You don’t know how unbelievably grateful I am to the two of you for believing in me always, for challenging me and for supporting me every step of the way (even literally when I ran my marathon Matt).
I was already feeling amazing but these last 12 weeks have taken it to another level. I have done things I never even dreamed of doing (I ran a f@&^ing marathon!!!) and I have so many lovely words of encouragement, awe and praise from friends as well as people I don’t even know! It has been so overwhelmingly heartwarming.
Annette you said it well the other day when you said that Matt took the opportunity to challenge me one step further, that he did, from not being able to run a kilometer to running a marathon within 12 months I’m so glad he did! I’m now learning just how strong I am.
Thank you for believing I can do anything! I now feel that I look just as good on the outside as I feel on the inside. Thank you… love you guys so much for being the people you are!
