Member Transformations
Some transformations from our amazing members. 💪

Jack

This is my 8 week transformation since starting the JSA and the Vegas challenge. It’s just nice to have a group as supportive as this one, I normally try to go it myself and then stop within a few weeks as I’m not accountable to anyone. Between the two pictures there’s 12 kg in difference and 6.5 inches off my waist.

img_1

Camila

4 weeks only cfd, no change in exercise...

img_1

Paul

My Christmas eating spilled into the rest of the year 😂 and I was unhappy about the fat I’d pilled on. Full on dad bod! I’d been following James on Facebook for a while. I liked his no bullshit approach and plain easy to follow advice. I decided to sign up for the free trial and loved it, so I signed up for 3 months. This is my progress 7 weeks in. I’m really pleased with the difference in body shape although there isn’t a huge difference in actual weight. CFD works 😊.

img_1

Rebecca

Top was 12 weeks and 9.2kg ago. Bottom was yesterday with a shit load of additional confidence ❤❤

img_1

Rebecca

You know what’s nice. Not wanting to cry every time I pass a mirror naked. 8 weeks of CFD. I’ve ate Nando’s, drank beer and ate chocolate (a lot!) but I have the tools to make this work in my diet thanks to the JSA. The beauty of it all is I know I’ve just started and I’m actually excited to keep going. I’ve never had such a healthy relationship with food, gym and myself ❤

img_1

Thomas

I loved watching the Facebook content before I joined the academy and have loved the content and support inside. I feel I have gained so much knowledge I find myself on a daily basis offering advise to people I know. I have recommended the academy to many friends which has led to two joining who absolutely love it. I have been amazed at what I have achieved in such a short space of time during the Bali challenge and I feel very proud and driven to keep going.

img_1

Betty

Progress from March this year til now. JSA works and I'm eternally grateful :) Still goals to smash but its so encouraging to see what all my hard work has achieved so far. Consistent CFD, weight training and NEAT up where possible.

This is the change over the last challenge!

img_1

Andrew

This challenge was more about performance for me, I hit a target of 1.5million steps over the 12 weeks and basically maintained my body composition which is a massive thing for me as I’ve only ever yoyo’d in the past, the JSA has helped me make sense of calories and exercise and how to live a life of balance💙.

img_1

Kate

These are my 12 week results from this challenge. 102cm lost this time round.

img_1

Rosie

Start and finish of Bali 4...cant say it was easy but it was totally worth it. I will be signing up for the next challenge also to lose the last 5 to 7kg.

img_1

Chris

I did a 12 week surplus after being in deficit on and off for the previous 8/9 months.

Kate

These are my 3 challenge in pics. Jan-now. 3.5m lost

Beginning of Bali4 challenge to week 12. Enjoyed this challenge - lots of hurdles/obstacles but still managed to progress 🥰💪🏻

Zoe

2 lbs and 21 inches gone 💪🏻 can’t wait for the next Challenge!

Richard

Challenge progress

img_1

Sophie

Started with a waist of 113cm and finished on 95cm. Mentally so much stronger. Smashed my goal of getting to a size 12. Smashed another goal of felling confident walking into a bar which I proved to myself at James’s talk in October 🌟

img_1

Lisa

My challenge progress

img_1

Claire

The challenge was exactly the push to get started that I needed. It kept me accountable every week and feeling like your part of a group, all striving to reach goals, really helped me stay motivated

img_1

Sarah

Amazing results everyone! So happy to have been part of this! 💪❤️🔥

img_1

Lorna

This challenge was exactly what I needed to keep myself accountable. Not only did I achieve my long-term goal of being at a healthy weight, I learned so much along the way about training and nutrition from the trainer's at JSA. Bring on the next challenge 😎👊🏼

img_1

Caroline

This is me in January (left) I was 12 months post partum after having my 2nd baby. I felt fat, frumpy and mumsie. All feelings I didnt want. The Bali challenge was the best thing for me. I'm fitter, stronger and leaner. It definitely helps with rugby! I cant wait for the next challenge and to build a shit load of muscle 😁

img_1

Karin

Start of Bali 4 July vs Nov. lost 27 inches and 9kgs. Biggest change was mindset it’s all clicked, good habits made and it fits my lifestyle. Looking forward to seeing what’s possible In the next challenge

img_1

Jennifer

I had already lost a decent amount of body fat prior to the 12 week challenge starting, so my focus was gaining strength / muscle, I was stuck in a constant cycle (on / off different diets) trying to get my pre pregnancy body back, I didn’t have access to a gym so followed purely the home workout plan and CFD approach. Very pleased with my results and the knowledge I gained along the way, I didn’t find my pre pregnancy body ... I made a better one.

img_1

Laura

This is my transformation in the 12 weeks

img_1

Claire

The kickstart I needed ❤️

img_1

Christie

I managed to shift another 16lbs on this challenge which takes my total loss to 90lbs 🤩 hoping to reach my 100lb goal for the end of the year 💪 Have been working on my strength in the gym too and can now squat and deadlift 100% of my body weight for 10 reps 😎 Happy for you guys to use!

img_1

Marie

Bali 4 Retreat. 1 dress size.

Bon

This was beginning to end of Bali 4. Bali 4 was all about shifting my mindset from being weight/size focussed to being happy and strong. My goal was to hit a 120kg 1RM on deadlift and I managed to lift it twice instead. For me being part of JSA and taking part in the challenges has been about undoing years of misinformation and gaining strength of both body and mind to actually just be happy in my body day to day instead of striving for a goal I may never reach. I started JSA in February, a very heavy 23 stone woman who desperately wanted to run like everyone else, weigh 10 stone and be a size 10 and wanted to fit in, but also a woman who was struggling to find herself in life having been unable to have children. As we come to the end of 2019 I no longer am worried about what I weigh because I have the knowledge and mindset to continue to chip away at that in a sustainable manner, and I am now a Strong Woman athlete 😲.

img_1

Louise

Top is the beginning, then at the beach during a 3 week holiday in America, bottom is the end of the challenge. I look relatively the same, that’s my win as usually I gain about 1.5stone when I go over and then spiral out of control. I think I’ve found the balance at last. 🎯 Smashed well over my 1 million step target 🎯 Well done everyone, finishing the challenge is no easy thing!

img_1

Julie

My challenge pic. 12" down, 19lb lost, moved house, quit job and made my health a priority. Building some new habits for life and totally loving the gym.

img_1

Dom

Start of the year compared to yesterday, although I’ve barely tracked anything for the last 4 months I’ve just been a bit more sensible with my choices, basically not eating 5 takeaways a week, I’ve probably put back on about 7 pounds from my lightest I’ve been this year but I’ve had a belting summer so I’m not assed in the slightest. I’m more educated in nutrition than I was a year ago, I’m healthier than I was a year ago and my nose is still the same size as it was a year ago 🤥 I’m 10x happier than I was a year ago 👍🏼

img_1

Steve

Start of the Fiji Challenge (October 18) to end of Bali Challenge 4 (November 19). Not done yet either. 👍

img_1

Blair

Blast from the past

img_1

Louise

Pre and post Bali 4. Down 2 dress sizes and up a load of self confidence and discipline! 🙂 💪

img_1

Lauren

The challenge was absolutely amazing for me; my goal was to lose the last 20 pounds needed to hit a total loss of 100 pounds over the past year. And I’m happy to say, I lost 22lbs in the Bali4 challenge- 102lbs in total ❤️I could write a novel here but I’ll just say that this has changed my life. I’m so glad I invested in myself, and I’m so grateful to have found JSA/you all!!!! I may post a few pics because I can’t decide my favorite, and I hope they encourage anyone just starting out- if I can do it, anyone can, I swear!

img_1

Helen

October 2018 starting with JSA to end of this Bali challenge ☺️ a much better relationship with food and exercise and overall mindset improvement.

img_1

Christina

My Bali4.0 challenge. I wanted to do Tough Mudder (mental challenge, I have really bad anxiety and it was stopping me joining in with fun things) and I wanted to lose 10cm off my waste and try and ignore the number on the scales. I completed TM with JSMA I'd never met before, I lost 11cm, gained a shit load of confidence, fell in love with my body, STAYED EXACTLY THE SAME ON THE SCALES but I honestly don't give a shit. I love the new me 😁

img_1

Simon

It’s been a fantastic 18 months within the JSA. After decades battling my weight I now find myself in a position that I’m fully in control of what happens. This can all be attributed to 3 simple words Calorie Fucking Deficit.

img_1

Mark

Before and after. The main thing is I didn’t starve for 12 weeks and have no fun. I enjoyed life and food at the same time. 7kg lost and 24cm total loss from a combination of chest, waist and hips.

img_1

Lyndsey

Bali 4.0 week 1 or 2 versus week 12! My first challenge and I loved it. I loved having structure and discipline. As a trainer to new mams myself, I find it very hard to admit I need help myself when my schedule gets too hectic. The accountability worked wonders for me!!!

img_1

Andy

Start to finish Even covered two holidays abroad and kept the cals in check... challenge wasn’t easy but it was worth it

img_1

Erik

I lost 5.9kg during the challenge and my goal was only to lose 5! Of course you can use any picture from me 😊

img_1

Stacy

18 months in the academy, 3rd Challenge completed, only 3lbs difference and 23cm off. Weight stayed stable for 11 weeks not moving at all! 3lbs came off in week 12! 😂 Great challenge , lots of strength & mindset goals smashed too ☺️

img_1

Aine

Bali 4: week 1 to week 12

img_1

Amanda

My 2nd challenge since joining Jsa. Consistency was always key for me. 55” overall since joining jsa and 3stone in scales weight. But lots of non scale victory’s. Completely different mindset about food and eat whatever I want within cfd. No longer have guilt for eating.

img_1

Kirsty

8.3kg lost this challenge, and 19.3kg lost since joining JSA in April this year, and have went from a size 14 to an 8. Never been happier, and this is the fittest and healthiest I’ve felt since I was my teens..thanks JSA! 🙌

img_1

Kelli

Was totally rapt with the difference I managed to achieve in 12 weeks, but most importantly how simple the process was with it being broken down so easily thanks to JSA! Even better that I managed to do it all without giving up whiskey, my social life or the food that I enjoy!! I’m now the smallest, fittest and lightest I’ve been in my adult life!! Can’t thank JSA enough!!

img_1

Amanda

This was my first JSA Challenge. I’d lost 30lbs already this year when I joined and I was looking for a new challenge that helped me focus on recomping and getting stronger. Left is January 2019, middle is the start of the challenge and right is my final results. During the challenge I worked on maintenance calories and dropped 3 inches off my waist, 2 inches from hips and chest and lost 2kg.

img_1

Jo

Bali 4 start to finish ❤️

img_1

Jane

Easily the best decision of my life to join the JSA. Jan 2019 - Start of Nov 2019. It's so much more than just getting fitter and healthier. This community is amongst the most supportive extended family I've ever come across. The other best thing is having the tools to implement whatever we need, when we need - yet appreciating the fun things in life too. The year before, I was a shell of myself after some intense back to back bereavements of my family - the JSA has helped me find "me" again, as cliche as that sounds. Nothing but love for the team and JSA Family. 💖

img_1

Donna

I have taken part in six of the challenges and each time I have learned something new about myself and how to create a healthy balance. I’ve gotten less hung up on the aesthetic and more into seeing how I can push myself with strength goals. In two years in the academy I’ve gone from registered disabled and unable to walk to work let alone do the training programs to climbing the three peaks and completing Tough Mudder. I also have a thyroid condition and bipolar and have not let this stand in my way or give me an excuse. It’s been tough but worth it! Good luck to all the new and old challengers!! (I give permission for this text/photo to be used)

Ann-Marie

Slightly different camera angle but definitely a change. Plus my mindset and training regime have improved massively. Couldn’t thank the JSA bunch enough for their tips and support on the app. My attitude towards my reflection and my self worth have hugely improved 💕💕

img_1

Ruthie

This was my 6th JSA challenge! It’s been a rollercoaster of a ride & I’m still on it! I never wanted the traditional things like a six pack, I just wanted to feel free and change myself but didn’t know how. I wanted to laugh again and be myself. I’ve had all of that and more! It’s been really hard but also a lot of fun. I also got a six pack at times and didn’t know what the fuss was all about. What I have achieved mentally completely outweighs any muscles! (Ok it Makes you feel god damn sexy though 😍 so that was cool - but it wears off so don’t get caught up on aesthetic goals they mean eff all after a few weeks). Each challenge has presented new challenges in mind and body where I’ve had to really push myself. I would not have achieved what I have without these time frames and challenges and what I have achieved has way surpassed what I could have ever imagined. And it doesn’t end, it never does. I’m a constant work in progress, every day is a school day. Anyway, I could write a book about JSA so I’m going now, bye! 💜💋

img_1

Nicola

This is since following JSA in Jan 19 and inconsistent calorie deficit, consistent weight training and consistent running.

img_1

Caroline

Loved my 1st challenge, signing up for the next. Lost 8kg and 20 inches (had a goal of 10 inches) felt amazing recently one night out, like literally loved all the pics I saw of me - never happened before ! 😀😀

img_1

Jay

Beginning, middle, and end of Vegas challenge. 4kgs and 105cm down. Life changing! <3

Can’t wait! 😊 Bring on Fiji!!! X Left - 2 weeks before Vegas Challenge, Right - Last night :) No pants pics here for me just yet!

img_1

Jonathan

12 weeks difference 16 stone 8lbs down to 15 stone 11lbs. New confidence, new friends, finally enjoying my journey and doing it the way I want to do it. I highly recommend JSA to everyone! If it’s not for the help from James and The Coaches, it’s the family of JSA members you get that comes with it!

img_1

Anjuli

I’ve certainly not stopped myself having fun and #allthegin this summer and still dropped 2 dress sizes and gained shed loads of strength and booty 😉

Annika

Phil

12 weeks progress, and although not trained as much as I would have liked, and school holidays didn’t help, still fairly happy. Total of 10 inches off from waist/hips/chest/thigh and 19lbs down from starting weight.

Karen

Thank you JSA! I love you hard for what you’ve helped me do!

From joining (in Feb) to now - how chubby was my face?! 😱 Clearly still haven’t sorted out my hair 😂

img_1

Jonah

12 weeks exactly, Vegas challenge start to finish. I'll add my flexing final pose after this collage in case you want to use that too as my final. So proud of what I was able to accomplish thanks to this challenge

img_1

Jo

So happy with the results I have achieved with JSA. To be able to achieve results and enjoy exercise which also compliments my lifestyle so I don’t feel I’m making a sacrifice is second to none! These photos show the results after 3 JSA challenges. I am so so happy 😁

img_1

Monika

If I had told myself before the challenge that I could lose 44.5 inches in 12 weeks by continuing to eat what I’d like and still enjoying the odd drink then I would’ve never believed myself but here I am! The challenge while I focussed on the aesthetic and inches lost I grew as a person and mentally became stronger. Found a new love for running, didn’t beat myself up when I couldn’t get to the gym and have the tools I need to continue making progress 💪🏻

img_1

Claire

I couldn’t be happier with my results. I’ve completed 2 challenges since joining JSA, dropping 70cm in 7 months. By balancing my calories, keeping my NEAT high, and following the coaches programmes whilst training at home, I’m the fittest I’ve ever been.

img_1

Lala

IT'S BEEN a great way to stay motivated and although my changes have been small compared to some of the others, I feel great... I know my clothes are fitting better and I feel healthy.

img_1

Beth

Very pleased with my results, I've avoided the scale as losing the weight wasn't my priority but I can clearly see a great change and I feel much more confident naked 👍🏼🤣🤣 so ridiculously happy with how my butt looks now too! Can't wait to keep up the training 💪🏼

img_1

Chloe

This challenge has by far been one of the best things I’ve ever entered. I’ve proved to myself that no matter what life throws at you, if you want something enough you can do absolutely anything when you put your mind to it. Since I’ve seen the positive changes in my body, I have a much healthier PMA and everything else around me seems to be falling into place. Thanks to all the trainers on the JSA chat for helping me and giving me the boosts when I needed them the most!! 💪🏼

img_1

Katie

I have never had such amazing progress, that I was able to maintain for the entire challenge, smashed my strength goals and am no longer controlled by a sugar/chocolate addiction - I love the trainers and all the support I have received made the challenge so easy to complete.

img_1

Amy

This was my first JSA challenge. It was also the first challenge or plan/routine that I have ever finished. I have a long way to go but the growth and change I see not just in my body but in my heart and mind is incredible. So excited to continue to do this for myself and see what I can accomplish!

img_1

Renee

Totally ecstatic with my results. It’s amazing what u can achieve in 12 weeks with planning and focus! I lost 6 inches off my waist!

img_1

Patricia

This has been my third challenge and for the first time in a VERY long time my goal wasn’t weight loss; my goal was to run a sub 30min 5km and I smashed it! With both weight training (at home) and running, I’ve progressed significantly with my strength and speed! Absolutely delighted with how this challenge has gone 🥰🏋🏼‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️

img_1

Kate

4 challenges in, over 4 metres gone. The JSA has changed so much more than my physical appearance, the mental changes are even more dramatic.

img_1

Louise

I’m a total tit and didn’t upload my last lot of photos in time 🤦🏼‍♀️. Not much change for me but I have 100% found my happy place. I’ve got the balance of food, exercise and living life working in perfect harmony. 🙂

img_1

Katy

First challenge I've completed, feeling so much better, mentally and physically ❤

img_1

Kaylz

Start to end! Amazingly happy with my results from my first ever challenge, goal achieved and more! Unfortunately I fractured a rib half way through the challenge and was convinced all progress was lost, but kept going and doing as much as I could. NEATUP and CFD became my life. So so pleased I decided to take part and will be taking part in future challenges 😊

Guorun

David

From Boardies to Budgys ... 2 challenges down in 2018/2019 .. not only a physical change but a change in mindset towards training, nutrition & mental health

img_1

Britt

This was my First challenge and it has been the best decision I have made. I will continue with the personalised programs feature of the academy, they are an absolute game changer! This challenge has truly given me so much more than physical changes. I have gained back so many aspects of my life I lost due to trauma. I cant thank the JSA enough! Xx

img_1

Bridget

I've done a few challenges in the past but this one has helped me the most, gave me a really goal and purpose in life these past 12 weeks and something else to focus on apart from being a wife and mother!!

img_1

Kay

This was my First challenge and it has been the best decision I have made. I will continue with the personalised programs feature of the academy, they are an absolute game changer!

Megan

This was my first challenge. My scales didn't budge at all, but I lost 4 inches from my waist. I am learning and growing, so I know I'm on the right path.

Laura

This was my first challenge. My scales didn't budge at all, but I lost 4 inches from my waist. I am learning and growing, so I know I'm on the right path.

Loving the changes so far! Can’t wait to see where I get to on the next challenge!

img_1

Janine

Yes you can see physical changes BUT what you can’t see are the important ones. Mindset - finally I love who I am 🥰

img_1

Stephanie

Joining JSA gave me more knowledge than I thought possible and a whole new outlook on health, fitness and wellbeing! Thank you to James, the coaches and the JSA members! 🖤

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm

Raymond

The first change has to be from within. After that, the possibilities are endless

Tracey

Don't wait, the time will never be 'just right', start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along- George Herbert

img_1

Jillian

The strongest factor for success is self-esteem. Believing you can do it. Believing you will do it, and believing you deserve it.

img_1

Paddy

It takes a village (or a James Smith Academy) Didn’t think I would ever have the motivation to get back into shape again, and couldn’t have done it without the JSA Community

img_1

Lauren

When you jump into a challenge with little to no control over what’s going on in your life, you may actually surprise yourself by what you are able to achieve.

img_1

Kirst

Big thanks to the legends at JSA - 12 weeks and I got my mojo back;)

img_1

Emma

JSA is not just a group but a family. Having the support of like minded people to pick you up when you're struggling is probably the most powerful tool you can have. After 8 years of trying to lose weight I am finally at my goal weight. Remember slow and steady wins the race and consistency is key.

img_1

Laura

Fad diet after fad diet and my body would always bounce back after losing weight... finally a sustainable lifestyle change that has changed my body and relationship with food for the better!

img_1

Georgina

Time to stop doubting and start believing

img_1

Elana

Empowered people, empower people. That shit is contagious. It's easy to achieve when you have a an army of people behind you willing to raise you up.

img_1

Shauna

Be patient and trust the process

img_1

Becky

7 JSA challenge attempts and I’ve finally reached my goal and completed one and i’m so so proud of my results! If you think you can’t do it, you fail a few times, don’t give up, persevere because you’ll get there in the end!

img_1

Natalie

I’ve had better results in these 12 weeks than I did in 40 weeks. Thank you JSA for making me accountable.

img_1

Katie

Joining the JSA & doing the challenge has empowered me in so many ways - I cannot thank James & his academy enough for that!

img_1

Nikki

Flexibility is key to continuity for me. 5kg down while still having two takeaways a week, I’ve created some life changing habits! Thank you to James, the team and the JSA community for giving me the tools to do so.

img_1

Bronwyn

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.

img_1

Felicia

Been trying for years to get these kind of results and it now took 12 weeks!! While still eating pasta, pizza, chocolate and everything that I love! Still can’t believe it. Thank you JSA❤️

img_1

Halima

JSA has completely transformed my life. I didn’t think I’d ever be where I am today and JSA workouts, CFD methodology and the community has given me a new found sustainable happiness I was after for years.

img_1

Gemma

These pics don’t reflect the full progress I’ve made in this last challenge. Stronger, healthier, happier. I trusted the process and now the process is my normality! The JSA Academy gave me the tools and confidence to lead a balanced lifestyle and I can’t thank the team enough for their constant support and encouragement.

img_1

Sean

So for 12 weeks I put pictures of myself in my pants every Sunday and some unknown randoms say '🔥' or 'well done' and because of that I knocked over 5 mins off my 5k time and can do 9 unassisted pull-ups

img_1

Hannah

Signing up to the challenge has been the best decision I've ever made for myself. So proud of my results ♡♡

img_1

Elena

Mine is a Welsh one ‘dyfal donc a dyr y garreg’ roughly translated as ‘keep chipping at that stone and it will break’ 😊

img_1

Dan

It doesn’t have to be hard. It doesn’t have to be boring. It doesn’t have to be horrible. You don’t have to eat salad and water and nothing else. Learn the principle, use all of the diets or none of the diets, use whatever works best for you and you achieve your goals.

img_1

Pip

Calorie 👏 Fucking 👏 Deficit 👏

img_1

Clara

This challenge has taught me so much about my strength, both physically but also mentally, with everything falling to pieces around us being able to stick to the challenge and learn to not beat myself up about food and training. I cannot thank the JSA enough for helping me grow as a person, and allow me to have enough strength to support myself and my friends and family ❤️

img_1

Sharon

This isn't a 12 week transformation. It took me a few years and a few challenges to fully click with everything I was learning. I never thought I would get it but I never stopped trying. Finally for this challenge my previous failings helped me through to the end. Being able to take on board all the knowledge, guidance and support from the Trainers and the community I was able to finish. You will fall down, but the JSA will always help pick you back up. The most important thing I have learnt from my experience here is this: Consistency, not perfection.

img_1

Sharon

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the challenge. Here's to continuing on a much healthier journey!

img_1

Claire

This has made me realise consistency is key, I can manage without a gym and also I love my body for how it looks and what it does which was my main challenge goal! I am proud of what I have done during this time and love myself more than I have ever done. Been doing this since 2017 and goes to show it is a a long haul game not short term!

img_1

Monika

A year later of following CFD I am so proud of the changes I’ve made while still being able to enjoy life and my favourite foods. No longer dieting and feeling the need to restrict foods I’m simply enjoying my new lifestyle. May 2019>June 2020 💚

img_1

Paul

Smile says it all. Enjoyed every minute of this challenge. Pushed myself and achieved goals I never thought I could. Powered by smoked meats and a fear of swans 👍

img_1

Carly

My motto of this challenge became adapt and overcome. I’m so happy with my results and managed to smash my goals even though for 10 weeks of the challenge we were in full lockdown in Spain unable to go outside except to buy food.

img_1

Sharon

5 challenges in and I continue to surprise myself with the benefits of consistency ❤️❤️. JSA has changed my life - my identity has adapted to become an active person who understands and more importantly can implement energy balance to fit in with my lifestyle. I’m never going back! Progress over 5 challenges also below.

img_1

Shannon

12 weeks that changed my outlook on so much - mentally made me a stronger and better person ! Only the beginning and wouldn’t of been possible without the help and support of everyone in JSA! More than a fitness group they are strangers who become best friends 💛

img_1

Can't believe that it's as simple as calorie deficit! I've tried so many fad diets and they make you think there's some secret you don't know, then you get so confused and led to believe that there's something else out there you're missing...when it simply comes down to being in a calorie deficit. While watching my portions, or saving some of my calories for the weekend (virtual wine nights ftw), and being consistent, I can still eat a lot of my favorite foods and lose weight! (Week 0 ➡️ Week 12)

This challenge is exactly what I've needed during this weird weird time!! Super proud I've managed to stick to it through this 💪💃 my goal was to lose 10cm from my hips to get into my UK size 14 work trousers, which I proudly wore comfortably last week after losing 10.5cm. Bring on the next challenge 💪

A non-transformation, at least physically. Life happens. No matter how much you plan, how much you hope, what processes you have in place, sometimes life just happens. In this case, a global pandemic that resulted in social distancing, gyms closing, being stood down, and shortages in toilet paper. In other words, unplanned, unforeseen and unprecedented events aka life. You roll with it. For me, that meant changing my goals to a maintenance-focus through consistency, looking after my mental health and just not completely backsliding with health and nutrition and strength. I’m now back at work and my jeans still fit and I can still lift full beer kegs so I think that’s a win! It’s been a great 12 weeks of rollercoaster good and bad times but also of learning and re-evaluation. I’m pretty excited for what’s next: one last challenge for old time’s sake focusing on strength goals, and growing my own personal knowledge in fitness and personal training! A big congratulations to everyone who partook in the Challenge. To the phenomenal team with JSA: Thank you xx

Lockdown gave me the chance to focus 100% on the challenge and my fitness.

This is my second challenge and what a challenge it was! The coaches/trainers on the chat are brilliant. Having all of your knowledge on using the equipment I have available at home to train was a game changer. I'll definitely be using the techniques in gyms (when they reopen) as well as home workouts in the future. Thank you!

For me the biggest win of the challenge was realising how quickly I can get "back on track" compared to before I joined JSA. I really struggled the first 6 weeks or so of lockdown, didnt work out and ate all around me but was able to get back on track a lot easier than I would have ever before. Ive learned so much over the last few challenges! Overall for the challenge there wasnt much of a change in pics and measurements when you compare week 1 and week 12 but there was definite progress throughout the challenge!

This was my first Challenge, I was totally ready for it, after having my baby in October I felt like I’d given myself plenty of time off too-then the gyms closed!with lots of friends helping me out with odd bits of equipment and a very supportive husband it soon didn’t matter! I had lots of good weeks and A few where I couldn’t motivate myself- My weakness if Definitely alcohol. I Feel Stronger Mentally and Physically and Even with just a small difference it’s given me the motivation to go forward!
