Success Story - Stephen Pringle

I first joined Fit n Fast Shellharbour in April 2014 and I would like to start by saying if I can do it then anybody can!   

BEFORE


AFTER


In April 2013 I had to get a total knee replacement. I then suffered 4 falls after leaving hospital, the last two falls resulted in me twisting and jarring my knee both times and as result it took me 6 weeks to recover.  

Later that year I went overseas to see my daughter and my twin grandchildren. While overseas my knee swelled up and seized up on me. I was eating a lot and probably drinking more than I should. It felt like my life was going nowhere fast.

I went to visit some former work mates that I used to work with in the 90's. There was one mate in particular that I shared a lot of good times and banter with, his name was Gordon. Gordon was going through a rough time. He had a cyst on his back that had burst and resulted in him being paralyzed from the waist down which meant he was confined to a wheel chair. I was so upset to see my mate in this condition. I kept in touch with him on a regular basis when I came back to Australia and sadly not long after I returned he passed away. It really left a big hole in my life.

At the time of his death I was still having issues with my knee and I decided that I had to do something with myself. This is when I decided to join the Fit n Fast Gym in Shellharbour. I was 105kgs when I first joined Fit n Fast and I am now 75kgs, I lost 30kgs in just 7 months. 

Since making this steady progress, I no longer get pain in my knee and I also sleep a lot better. I feel really great within myself also. So because of that I would like say a big thank you to Kate my Personal Trainer for all of the workouts and the help she has provided me in reaching my goals. I would also like to thank all of the staff at the Fit n Fast Gym in Shellharbour for welcoming me into the Fit n Fast family!!

Lastly I would like to dedicate all that I have achieved to Gordon who was not just a great mate but he was like a brother to me. RIP my good friend
