“How I went from 100Kg down to a size 9 dress size in just 5 months

img-success-story

Tighten Up has trained me through two pregnancies and two major car accidents. The careful attention given to me by my trainer Jewelz always has me feeling strong and fit and back on my feet in no time.

The latest addition to my family had me up over 100kg and I’m happy to say that after only 5 months of training twice a week my most recent purchase was a size 9 pair of skinny jeans!

I put this down to the constant encouragement and advice of my amazing trainer!

I started seeing Jewelz over 5 years ago with a goal of losing weight. I shed over 10 kilos in my time with her; I went from a size 16 to a size 10, more importantly I gained so much self confidence.

I feel so strong and alive now!

Jewelz has taught me Strong is Sexy and every woman deserves to feel beautiful and powerful!

I would recommend her to anyone, of any fitness level. Jewelz has changed my life. She can change your too!

Sara Millar _n

I have lost 2.6% body fat, 13cm around my waist, 2.5 cms around my hips, 2.7 cms around my chest, and 4 cms off my thighs. My arms are toned and muscular and i began to see my six pack after 4 weeks andI dropped two dress sizes!

Jewelz is by far one of the most knowledgeable, inspirational, supportive and driving personal trainers I have ever met!

“I have lost a over 10Kg, feel stronger and happier”

“One day I just knew it was time to get serious about my health and that’s how I met Jewelz. One year on, I have lost a over 10kgs, feel stronger and happier in myself.

Jewelz provided guidance about what to eat and how much to eat, and by keeping a food diary for the first 3 months, this gave me real insight into what I was eating and the excuses I was making to myself.  I can’t stress enough how important this step was for me.

The strength training has been fun and interesting, I particularly like the boxing classes and would encourage anyone at any level to try them.

The weight loss has been steady, with Jewelz providing encouragement and support all the way.  Her helpful tips, inspiring quotes, can do manner, great music choice and focus on continually finding ways to improve the service she provides to her clients is way beyond what most personal trainers can ever hope to provide.

“I have seen my body change shape”

Eve Wilson

Since training with Tighten Up, I have seen my body change shape, a subtle strength and postural confidence that many in my life have commented on.  My trainer Jewelz uses her insight, genuine care and extensive knowledge of the human body to tailor a unique session for me each week and every week.

Only a session with Jewelz could get me out of bed every week at 5am to travel from northcote to st Kilda and back!  I train with my partner also and this additional dimension only accentuates Jewelz’s skill set.  She comes up with innovative and fun exercises each week with us working together as well as on our own and always finds a way for us both to get exactly what we need.

But Jewelz is not just a personal trainer. She is an all round awesome person who always has people’s best interests at heart and wants to see them shine.  Her personal touch, interest and care are palpable and unique.

“Improvement in muscle strength, tone, and overall conditioning”

I’ve been training regularly for 30 years and have been a qualified fitness instructor myself, and I love my weekly sessions at Tighten Up with my trainer Jewelz. No two workouts are ever the same, they’re fun (most of the time) & challenging, and I’ve noticed a marked improvement in muscle strength, tone, and overall conditioning.

Her knowledge and diligence is perfect for reaching your fitness goals and also great piece of mind against potential injury. I may curse her when the alarm goes off at 5am, but I can’t recommend her highly enough!

“My fitness and strength have grown to a point where I have never felt better”

Tanya Erdos

I started personal training with Tighten Up over six years ago, in my late 30s.  At that point I don’t think I had ever been fit in my life.  My Trainer Jewelz made me feel immediately comfortable and knew just how far to push me without scaring me away!

Over the past six years my fitness and strength have grown to a point where I have never felt better.  The training sessions really focus on my body and my health and are tailored to suit my current level of ability.

I have enjoyed one-on-one, two-on-one as well as group training sessions with Tighten Up and have found all the sessions to be just as enjoyable and beneficial.  My trainer Jewelz is more than a just personal trainer and is committed to a holistic approach to health.  I would highly recommend all of Tighten Up’s services and I look forward to every session with enthusiasm

“I feel energised and I look great”

My trainer Jewelz is a top-notch personal trainer and fitness expert and I recommend her as strongly as possible.  Using my health/fitness history as a baseline and continuously observing me in the gym, she has developed (and continues to tweak) a comprehensive fitness plan that is tailored to my body and my goals.  As a coach, she is tough and firm, always encouraging me to push my limits for better results.

As a fitness expert, she is always ready to answer my questions, readily explaining the science behind her training methods.  And personally, she’s smart, friendly, and fun – always good for a laugh.

Since starting my training with Jewelz, I feel energised and I look great.  I also highly recommend her group session Sweatbox, its a great way to stay active and fit throughout the week, and good fun getting to work out with an encouraging crew.

“Given me a great body”

Jax 2014 _n

I started training with Tighten Up over 6 yrs ago

My trainer Jewelz is the most inspired, highly motivated and innovative trainers I have ever experienced. Determined to see her clients breakthrough personal struggles and win with a focus on mind and body.

She’s so passionate and focused, paying particular attention to your fitness levels and injuries. She mixes up sessions so its never boring!

She provides so much more than just a session at the gym, it is truly a life changing experience, so much so, that I have enrolled with the “A.I.F” to become a personal trainer!

She really has changed my life, I’m so pleased I didnt burn all those years ago. She’s given me a great body and a new focus.

“I have lost weight, toned up and gained lean muscle”

Lorraine Moore

I was recovering from a knee injury and I had lost my motivation to get back exercising. I happened to stumble upon Tighten Up on my way home from work one day and I arranged an assessment.

My trainer Jewelz was incredibly thorough and went through all my medical history and injuries and we discussed my goals. I can honestly say that signing up to train with Jewelz was the best decision I have made in the past year. From a physical perspective my level of fitness, strength and stability has greatly improved. I have lost weight, toned up and gained lean muscle.

Jewelz is very intuitive and she knows when to push me, she is also aware that people can have “off days” and knows when I have reached my limits! On the flip side of this she is not afraid to increase the weights and make you do an extra few reps, but this is what gets the results!

Jewelz always mixes things up and keeps it interesting. I think this variety is essential and it’s great for conditioning your body. In addition to the training Jewelz gives great tips on nutrition, if I have any food queries I go straight to her. She also gave me advice and recommended strengthening exercises when I sprained my ankle earlier this year.

Training with Jewelz has been great for me physically and mentally and I would highly recommend her as a trainer.

“I feel stronger every week. Strong is sexy!”

Stacey lawson

I drive from the Northern suburbs to train every Saturday – I just feel so happy here! You walk away from every session knowing that you’ve achieved something.

Jewelz will always check in with us during the week and forward healthy food ideas as well as ‘need to know’ information that we can implement into our routines. Jewelz is always happy to offer her advice, nutrition tips, food ideas or answer any questions you might have. I have learnt so much in my time here, I have made many changes to my lifestyle, and to top it off – I feel stronger every week. Strong is sexy!
