After the birth of my second daughter and my weight plateauing, l decided to take a leap of faith and join Roy’s 8wk to lean programme. I was particularly nervous for a few reasons. Firstly I have been friends with Roy for quite a few years now with our friendship being built on our love of football and beer. Because of our friendship l was worried l would let Roy down as this was not my first attempt at making a change with my diet. 

 “During the course of the 8wks it because apparent that this would not be the case. Roy’s style of coaching along with his knowledge and experience gave me the tools and confidence to make the changes l needed and l was happy to report that after the 8wks l had lost over a stone with relative ease.”

The three key learnings l took from Roy are:

  • It’s all about choices. Of course you can eat pizza, burgers and beer but maybe not just 7 days a week.
  • Know your triggers. This is something l now recognise i.e. when l am more tired than usual its likely l will crave more carbs and that is ok.
  • What we perceive as a bad ‘eating day’ does not mean you’re a bad person. I now recognise that this is normal and the trick is to not allow a bad day turn into a bad week.

I really couldn’t recommend Roy / RX2 enough. His knowledge, coaching style and common sense approach has helped me in so many ways.

Cheers Roy boy and keep up the amazing work.

So, I actually did the 8WTL program last year too. I dropped over 8kg in the process, but I wasn’t in the right frame of mind and eventually lost my way again.  I probably put half of the weight back on again.

Last year wasn’t the best year for me mentally, and toward the end of the year I wanted to make a change with myself as I was unhappy.  Not only with my physical appeared, but my mental health too.

 So here I was  signing up for another 8 Weeks to Lean. I was kinda able to get up and running quicker because I had an idea of what to expect from the previous year, but this time round, with the changes that had been made to it, I had a lot more to fully benefit from.

Having completed it this time round I can’t explain how much better I feel all-round.  

 “I’ve lost inches off my body everywhere.  I can fit into a smaller size from my favorite clothing brand.  Most, if not all, of my clothes are too big.  I feel healthier.  I feel stronger.  I can see huge changes in my body, such as my waist definition, and actually having some definition in my chin!  It’s been exciting to see.”

I struggled for a long-ass time to lose weight due to the contraception injection, which totally messes with my hormones and caused me to gain a lot of weight.  Not that i’m free of that, it’s good to see it come off.

Mentally, the changes are phenomenal.  I used to have what I call “downer” days regularly.  Probably every 2nd or 3rd day.  not they’re very infrequent.  My mind feels clearer and more free. 

 

My productivity and organisational levels are unreal. I’m still eating all that batch cooking from the freezer!  I no longer feel guilty for having something I want because I know I can work with it and around it; Not against it!

I’ve been learning to take time for myself that’s not sitting binging Netflix all night then wondering where my night has gone; struggling to then sleep.  I’m reading again. I’m walking again. I’m journalling again.

It’s also given me the confidence to do something I never thought i’d do.  Play sports.  If someone told me that i’d have been attempting to play a sport… then i’d have been in fits of laughter.  But, here I am.  8 weeks into playing dodgeball and really enjoying it. 

This, if turn, spurs me on to keep at it in the gym so I can get fitter and stronger for dodgeball!

With all that said, I can’t recommend you enough to give Roy a shout, whether it’s to be coached or the 8 Weeks to Lean program, if you want to make some changes.

I decided to join Roy’s 8WTL programme after travelling for 5 months and consuming way too much beer and pizza. I thought it might of gave me the little push I needed, I didn’t expect it to transform my whole mentality and relationship with food the way it did. 

 “Besides from the physical changes, losing 9lbs and a dress size, the biggest change has been to my relationship with food. I’ve realised I don’t have to eat dry rice and broccoli to lose weight.”

I have tried many different methods of dieting and training over the years, but often didn’t understand why I was doing what I was. Roy broke everything down for us, gave us the tools we needed without spoon feeding us diet plans and helped us understand why we were doing this.

 I still eat chocolate every night and have a glass (or 5) of wine at the weekends. I now enjoy going to the gym and being able to track what workouts I’m doing and seeing my strength improve over the weeks. I’d recommend this programme to anyone who’s looking to gain a better understanding of nutrition, it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! Thank you Roy!

 “Roy taught me not only about nutrition and exercise but the psychological and biological aspects surrounding eating and training and how to identify destructive behaviours and implement them with healthier ones.”

Not only have I lost weight but I have eaten out, learnt how to accommodate for the things that I enjoy eating and learnt how to manage the black and white mentality that used to sabotage my efforts so much in the past.

Roy equips you with the skills that you need to make life-long sustainable changes to meet your goals. His witty repartee cannot go unmentioned as he makes the whole process fun, interesting and enjoyable. I would recommend Roy to anybody that is looking to get in shape and have fun in the process.

I’ve been following RX2 Fitness & Roy on social media for years.

 “The posts on nutrition, exercise and also mental health have been incredibly helpful to me for the last 18 months or so in particular.”

Joining 8 weeks to lean program got me even more involved and I’ve learnt so much from the chap. It may only be an 8 week program but it sets you up on a far longer path.
