Friday, 14 June 2013 | Admin
Clare has been with TWS for 2 Years, she started her journey with us not really knowing what her goals were going to be. After a few months she realised her potential and started to set small realistic goals which kept her motivated and focused.
With hard work, dedication and the right team behind her you can see the transformation below.
Read Clare's honest answers to 15 straight questions which we hope will help others on their journey:
How long have you been training?
What was it that made you decide you needed to start to exercise and make the change in your life?
When my size 18 trousers were too tight and I did not want to buy a size 20.
How many times a week do you currently train?
7 days a week - 2 of these days are very light to ensure I do not over train.
How has your achievement had a positive effect on relationships with your family?
I now have my husband and daughters involved in fitness, which means we spend more time together doing different activities, such as walking, cycling and swimming.
Have you had support from your friends and family?
Yes, they have all been fantastic and given me lots of encouragement...as well as placing a few temptations in my way to see if I can resist them!
