"KICK17 is way ahead of anything I have ever tried before as it has given me the results I was
wanting and in just 28 days."
Why did you decide to join the KICK17 course?
I kept asking myself this question in the painful 48 hours following my first gruelling KICK17
Workout! I suppose my main reasons were the need to regain my fading self-esteem
and improve my inner health. I knew that I needed help to restart a healthier lifestyle.
Over a 9 month period, due to a variety of reasons sadly aided by a lack of motivation, my
alcohol, caffeine and carbohydrate consumption had all increased. This had led to weight
gain so my daily indigestion and gastric reflux returned with a vengeance. My health was
suffering, I was constantly feeling lethargic and uncomfortable and I missed the
energy that I used to have.
I already knew that KICK was a powerful course that gave excellent results when followed
correctly and I liked the idea of challenging myself to complete it. Joining KICK17 was my
way out of the doldrums.
What did you achieve during KICK17?
I bounced back and learnt to love myself again! I lost an incredible 5.7 inches of body fat and nothing feels tight any more. My indigestion and gastric reflux are under control and only pop up when I eat the wrong foods. I have loads of energy and am enjoying exercise again. I have been told that my skin is radiant and that I appear to be more relaxed and fun than I have been for some time.
How was the overall KICK17 experience for you?
Nutrition - I do not think I suffered from alcohol, caffeine or sugar cravings but my husband
would beg to differ as he was calling me Mrs Grumpy for a while!
I had a digestion problem with Apple Cider Vinegar but by following Fitism advice and
building up to the recommended dosage this quickly ceased to be an issue.
The overall nutritional programme was easy to follow and I never felt hungry thanks to the
Chocolate covered Frozen Banana Bites recipe which nipped nighttime nibble urges in the
Juicing - I was not looking forward to the juicing phase but this turned out to be a turning
point for me. I loved the flavour of the juices, I never felt hungry and the bonus was that I
did not have to think about meal planning or cooking for 3 days! I enjoyed it so much that I
have invested in a juicer and intend to incorporate juicing into my weekly meal plan.
Exercise - The initial Buddy workout was really hard for me and I suffered for a few days
but my FITISM Trainer took pity on me and adjusted my programme to take into account my
aching limbs. I chose to do the least amount of exercise recommended under KICK17 as this
suited both my needs and my availability.
How did you find the community support at FITISM during KICK17?
The on-line KICK17 community and fellow Buddy KICKers were great fun, supportive and
encouraging. It was helpful to get tips from fellow KICKers and to know that you were not
alone in the way you may have been feeling. Training in a Buddy group of 4 was not at all
intimidating or competitive, quite the opposite as we all encouraged one another. New
friendships have been formed which is a delightful bonus of KICK17.
The Fitism Staff listened to my concerns and gave excellent support/advice and adjusted
my exercise sessions/nutrition where necessary. I felt welcomed, encouraged and rewarded
for my participation.
How did the KICK17 course compare to other courses, diets, plans etc you have tried before?
KICK17 is way ahead of anything I have ever tried before as it has given me the results I was
wanting and in just 28 days. It is not a diet, it is a powerful course that encourages a
change of eating and exercise habits. It is a lifestyle change.
What would you say to anyone wanting to do the next KICK course?
Do it, stick with it and you wont regret it.
Do you have anything else you would like to say about KICK17?
I think I have said enough!
