Arrnott’s Fitness Journey | A Second Awakening

Losing around 80kgs in 2011 with the help of my good friend Shaun Button, I was on such a high I had achieved what I had dreamed of for years. I was Fit, Healthy and could walk into a shop and buy whatever I wanted off the rack.

Then a couple of things happened  that knocked me off my perch, I lost my way a little cause I didn’t have a goal anymore [ I believe the statement “Without A Dream Men Perish], secondly I had begun to look down on those around me that weren’t trying to get healthy or make the change.

With pride they say a fall come’s next, and fall I did from this amazing Health and weight loss journey I was on . I couldn’t take my shirt off due to excess skin left after the weight loss so what was the point in doing weights and trying to push forward, my training became sporadic and inconsistent never mind how hard I tried. I had somehow begun to block myself, I put on a bit of weight and realised I was caught up in the struggle again. Through my own pride, lack of proper goals and someone to be accountable to I had taken a step back. Thus we come to where I am today, My Second Awakening as such, admitting I needed some guidance, and some new goals and making a decision that I will not get caught up in shame or feeling bad instead I’ll set some new goals and pick myself back up.

So I’m very excited to announce for the next 2-3 Months I’ll be working with Mark Nino from , aiming to lose more then 20kgs and then aiming for a my major goal of mine to finally get under 100kgs. It’s going to be a challenge, but its time to do it and I’ve got to stop being distracted.

Remember if I can do it then so can you, find someone to be accountable to and stay fit and healthy…
