Meghan Walker ( Curves Coach and former member)
I joined curves back in October 2011. I was in a bad place in my life, school was hard I got bullied about my weight and was really down on myself. I lost all my friends and thought I had nothing left.
Then one day mum and I walked past Curves Wanniassa, we ran into an old friend that went to Curves so we asked what was in there? She explained, so mum and I went home and googled it!
The following day we decided to go in and see what it was like, and we joined that day!
I met Christina and Jane, they really helped and pushed me on the circuit. With the motivation and support from them, mum and I were more focused than ever to lose weight so I could feel happier within myself. This was the beginning of my weight loss journey.
One afternoon Christina ran into my mum and said Chris Conway (the owner) was looking for a staff member, I met with “Big” Chris and Wendy and I got the job.
The staff were very supportive and helped me with the training involved to become a Curves trainer and Curves Complete weight management coach, I started to believe I could be happy again.
Doing workouts 3-5 x a week, the help of Curvessmart and the knowledge of Curves Complete, I learnt what I needed to do to lose the weight.
So here I am now happier than ever! I have lost 12.8 kilos and 73 cm, my body fat is sitting on 12.1%.
Curves has been the best thing for me, and seeing all the members each day keeps me motivated. Seeing the members all smile and do well pushes me to keep going. I wouldn’t have been able to do this without the help of my mother and all my lovely friends/staff members! Couldn't thank them enough :)
