The EBC Diary – Shelley Burgess

10 sessions and loving it

Last October I was looking at myself in the mirror and didn’t like what I saw. I knew I had to do something about it. However, I couldn’t get motivated in the gym, and it was hard to get away from work to get to it. So results were not happening. Then I saw the Groupon deal to try out EBC!

I purchased 10 sessions. I loved it when I joined, and started to see improvements in my fitness after the first 5 sessions. Unfortunately, I then got some bad news in November. The doctors found pre-cancerous cells and I had to go in for an operation straight away. This wasn’t a good point in my life and I went straight back to square one with health and fitness.

When I healed and was ‘back to normal’ I came back to EBC in January. It was hard and I struggled, however due to the amazing support of everyone there I managed to push through and was going every Wednesday.

When we got to March I went out on my first EBC Social. This was the turning point for me. I made friends and realised a lot of people’s stories, what they are working for, why, etc. This really changed my mind-set and I signed up with the DD and started coming twice a week. That’s when I started seeing results for myself. My fitness improved faster, and I was seeing results in the mirror.

Now 6 months later, I have dropped dress sizes, I look and feel better, plus I feel much more confident and happier. I have completed two 5Ks with my EBC family and beaten my PB with them. I have signed up to my first obstacle course race and I’m sure it will not be my last! Plus I try to do more than 2 sessions a week now.

I could not have done it and got where I am today without the amazing instructors at EBC and the fantastic support network EBC has with all its members. Here’s to the next 6 months and what amazing things we will complete together and the results I will see with my body!
