A Simply Transformation: Carly Letch
Hey, I’m Carly, I joined Simply Kettering nearly 2 years ago. Before Simply, I weighed 16 stone at my heaviest. I was so embarrassed by how I looked and I was so scared to join a gym as I lacked confidence in myself. But after much persuasion, I joined and I absolutely love it now!
Overall I’ve lost about six stone, but since joining the gym I’ve gained 2, and I’ve never felt better! I’ve learned what’s best for my body and how to get the best out of it. Generally I weight train, and I love deadlifts (who doesn’t!). Now that I’m training, the more weight that goes on the happier I am, which definitely didn’t used to be the case. The feeling you get when you hit a PB (personal best) is second to none, alongside squats of course.
“Being surrounded by people in the same position as me has taught me to love myself”
Before I joined the gym I was so self-conscious about the way I looked. But being surrounded by people in the same position as me has taught me to love myself. And that’s the key.
My advice to anyone wanting to change their lifestyle is to never give up, have faith in yourself, embrace your body for who are and celebrate every little achievement.
