I wanted to share my story with my Wrench family because it has been a life changing one. I started training with Reg in June, and started right from the very beginning. I didn't even know how to do a proper squat. My goal was to learn how to work out properly, tighten, tone and re-energize my body post baby. I also wanted to learn the tools to maintain a stronger, healthier physique to prepare for baby number two.

I was motivated by a friend who competed in a WBFF comp less than a year post baby and another friend who had just received her pro-card with the NPAA. They both had such great stories to tell and looked so amazing. I sought out a trainer in SK that would help me make a healthier change. I was referred to Reg and Carly by my friend who had competed with Carly at a NPAA show. She had nothing but positive things to say so I made the trek to Martinsville (35 mins from my home) to start my fitness journey.

What a journey it has been! The one thing I remember from our first meeting was Reg asking me if I was hoping to loose weight. I was 117lbs at the time and wasn't totally happy at that weight and but knew I didn't have a ton too loose. He told me that I will be gaining muscle tone and not to pay attention to the scale as it may go up, and that is a good thing. Right there I knew I was in the right place. I then did not touch a scale for the next 5 months! I am now a lean, mean, Mommy with muscles and have never been happier with how I feel and how I look. I worked out 3-4 times a week, and hour to an hour and a half each time. At my pace and schedule. As a busy Mom, Reg worked with the equipment that I had a home and made up a specific circuit for it. I was able to workout half at home and half at the gym. I looked forward to getting together Sundays for stage prep and weekly bonding with my team mates.

contest-kate-s-2I love food so getting to eat 6 times a day was awesome. It was even, at times, hard to eat the amount of food Reg wanted me to. I can say I now drink at least 3 litres of water a day and when I don't my body reminds me I need to. I cook very differently now and my fridge and pantry have been transformed from processed foods and pasta to fresh produce and natural whole grains.

I went into our show in Calgary Nov 9th with the no real goals. I felt totally satisfied at about week 12 of contest prep and everything on top was gravy! I felt so prepared and relaxed I had a blast! Carly and Reg took care of all the little details so I could fully enjoy the experience and my little time in the spotlight! I placed 3rd out of 15 girls in the novice bikini division and could not be happier. I am now looking forward to the next phase of my journey. I can confidently say I have made a lifestyle change to a healthier me. I would recommend this experience to anyone, even if competing isn't your end goal. I have never felt stronger, happier and healthier!
