MARIO DE FRENZA

I took this 8 week challenge primarily to get my mental health back on track. Over the past year I have had some heartbreaking situations including a forced  break up with my long-term girlfriend and business partner. This left me running the business solo and has caused financial difficulties due to loss of business.

My best friend passed away overseas and this absolutely shattered me. Carrying his coffin to see him off was surreal and I will never forget how horrible this day was. As a band-aid fix and what I thought would help my suicidal thoughts and depression, I turned to alcohol and food to drown my emotions and slowly but surely I lost focus on my children, work, family and friends. I also gained kilos upon kilos and before I knew it I went from 95kg to 120kgs.  It was a snowball effect.

After my best friends memorial I decided I that I did not want to end up having to have my children carrying my coffin as it was heartbreaking seeing how painful it was for my best friend’s children to lose their dad. I met my trainer Shawn and from that day I pledged that I wanted my mental health back. Be positive and find the man I was. The challenge was in a way life saving for me.  I have regained my mental focus, I no longer drink excessively and I use food for fuel rather than comfort.

As a bonus I have lost 13kgs, lost over 40cms of fat (14cm off my waist) and am feeling physically stronger and fitter. It has given me belief again and more importantly rejuvenated my relationship with my children who now exercise with me.
The food over the challenge was fantastic and has taught me not to treat it as the enemy but to enjoy food in smaller portions and being aware of calorie intake. Thank you to Shawn and Phil from Anytime Fitness Caringbah for giving me the help and support I needed to get back on track again

Back in 2014 my mum was diagnosed with cancer. I was devastated and heartbroken. How could someone so amazing and beautiful be struck by such a terrible disease. I was determined to do everything within my power to support and help my mum (best friend) through this trying time. Unfortunately in late 2018 my incredible mum lost her battle with cancer. My whole world was shattered, so I turned to comfort eating in an attempt to try and bury all my feelings and emotions. I became so uncomfortable in my own skin that I started to wear baggy clothes to hide my weight.

Clothes shopping, which I had once enjoyed, had now become an activity I dreaded. I hated the struggle of trying on endless clothes, many sizes bigger than I had once been, and they never fit. Even just the effort of getting in and out of them was exhausting. It made me feel ashamed of my body, I was angry that I had allowed it to get so bad, but I didn’t have the energy or inspiration to do anything about it. I knew something needed to change and then that’s when I noticed that Anytime Fitness was doing their 8 week challenge. I thought this could be the opportunity I had been looking for to reinvent my lifestyle. It would help motivate me to get on the path to good health and fitness, ultimately losing the weight I had put on.

Leading up to the start of the challenge, I began writing down all the things I would need to implement, and exclude, to achieve my goal. I mentally prepared myself so that when the challenge started I would have no excuses for not sticking to my plan. I knew I had to eat right, incorporate lots of cardio and a full body weights program into my weekly plan. Maintaining consistency in my weekly efforts without burning myself out would also be crucial. One of the great things about Anytime Fitness gyms is that they have all the cardio machines and weights you could possibly need to get in shape. I had all the tools I needed at my finger tips.

My original goal was to lose 10kg in 8 weeks, but once I got started I quickly realised I could achieve more. The progress I was making was enough to keep me motivated and focused throughout the challenge. 8 weeks in reality isn’t a very long time but in spite of this I was able to lose a total of 26kg, out doing what I originally thought was possible.
I would like to give a special thank you to Leeanne Walker from Anytime Fitness Gawler Green. Leeanne was always willing to help me however possible and I am grateful and appreciative to Leeanne for all her support throughout this challenge.

I feel incredible for losing all this weight and I am determined to continue my own personal challenge and get down to my ideal weight.
