8 Week Transformation: How Carly Got Back Her Pre-Covid Body

Carly Finds Her Self-Confidence Again With The Help Of An Evolt 360

The Struggle From Lockdown

Like many people during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, it wasn’t the best year for Carly Softley-Williams’ who found herself home schooling her 3 little boys and tackling the pressures of extended lockdown.

Unable to travel any further than 5kms from her home, any motivation to exercise in the comfort of her own abode and eat well had well and truly diminished.

But when 2021 came along, it turned a new leaf in Carly who suddenly switched her mindset and came to the conclusion that the new year was the reset she needed – with gyms reopening and the children back at school, it was finally time to get her health and fitness back on track.

 

 

 

8 week transformation

How She Did It

As soon as January showed itself, Carly put in the work and turned up at the gym 4 days per week. She incorporated running into her schedule across 3 days, and there was no doubt the motivation had started to kick in.

“As soon as the Body Fit Training Montmorency announced an 8 week challenge, I knew this was what I needed to kickstart the weight loss,” she said.

“I began training 5 days per week at BFT Montmorency and continued running; I also started training for a 60km hike.”

Along with her physical program, Carly followed a strict meal plan that calculated all the macronutrients she would need, and before long she felt like she was on the right path and her self-confidence had returned.

“I feel so much better in clothes that I never thought I’d be able to fit back into,” she recalls.

“My energy levels have significantly increased, as has my endurance for running.”

“In 8 short weeks, I didn’t think it was possible to see such a transformation.”

But it wasn’t just the external changes Carly could see – she could see an enormous change in her entire physical being thanks to taking comparison Evolt 360 body scans before and after the challenge.

The Evolt Experience

Before the 8-week challenge, Carly had never stepped on an Evolt 360 Body Composition Analyzer before, and she was intrigued. Once she received her first print out and downloaded the Evolt Active app, she was gobsmacked at all the measurements the Evolt 360 had covered.

“I loved the fact that it broke everything down into smaller categories like lean body mass, fat mass and visceral fat,” she said.

“It was such an easy layout to read, and provided incredible detail.”

Carly’s Comparisons

Between 30 January (2021) and 26 March (2021), Carly trained day in and day out, followed her nutrition program, and focused on the bigger picture. In those 8 weeks, she saw an amazing change in her scan data that meant she was 100% on the way to a healthier version of herself.

                                                 BEFORE                     AFTER

Body Weight                             76.3kg                         64.9kg
Total Body Fat %                      34.8%                          28.9%
Visceral Fat Area                      90                                49
Subcutaneous Fat Mass            23.3                             16.9
Lean Body Mass                       49.7                             46.1
Skeletal Muscle Mass                27.2                             25.4
Bio Age                                    39                                36

And according to her scan results, Carly had shaved a whopping 3 years off her bio age!

For those keen for a bit of extra knowledge, biological age differs from chronological age because it takes into consideration a number of physiological development factors other than just the day you were born – these include lifestyle, nutrition and diseases/conditions. So to reduce her bio age, Carly really worked at a healthy diet, getting plenty of exercise, working on her strength, ensuring plenty of sleep, and limiting toxins.

Seeing a significant change in the bio age on the Evolt 360 scan was scientifically-backed proof that Carly was, and still is, making the right choices for her life.

“An ordinary scale can only give you one number, and that one number doesn’t know how much muscle you’ve put on or how many years you’ve lost off your bio age,” she said.

“The Evolt 360 bioscan is so much more than that.”

“Through it I found out at the end of the challenge my bio age is actually lower than my real age! Seeing these numbers move makes you accountable, proves that all the hard work you’re putting in is working, and it’s the motivation to keep you moving forward.”

Get Started On Your Own Journey

Stepping on an Evolt 360 body scanner can sometimes feel intimidating for the person who’s never seen one before. But rest assured, in just 60 seconds the highly advanced technological data is second-to-none and in your hot little hands before you know it.

Walk away knowing the figures of over 40 bodily measurements which include protein, mineral intake, total body water, visceral fat mass and subcutaneous fat area; learn where you need to improve, and what you need to do to get it done with the help of an Evolt trained staff member at your local gym or fitness/wellness centre.

Together with the Evolt scan, the Evolt Active app will keep you motivated with all that data stored securely under your personal profile – just like it did for Carly.

“My favorite part of the app was that all of my scans over the 8-week period were stored there and compared to each other,” she said.

“It makes it really easy to see your progress and that was the motivation I needed to keep going.”

Carly, thrilled with her newly found positive attitude, gave advice to those wanting similar results.

“Just do it!” she said.

“Seeing the numbers in the first scan can be horrifying (because how did I let it get to this?) but seeing those numbers and knowing it’s the first step to make a change for a healthier lifestyle are incredibly inspiring.”

7 REASONS EVOLT MAKES SENSE FOR YOUR FACILITY

1.

A Starting Point. Because the number one reason members quit a gym is that they don’t use it enough, Evolt gets them motivated by providing a baseline measurement of the overall fitness. This motivates them to improve and provides an easy-to-understand measurement of their progress.

2.

Better Nutrition. By using the free Evolt app, your clients can easily monitor the macronutrient breakdown that is updated with each scan. It takes the guesswork out of a nutrition plan.

3.

Easy Reporting. Through Evolt Insights, our cloud-based reporting program, trainers have easy access to member profiles, allowing them to monitor their workouts and progress. It also facilitates automated Club Challenges.

4.

Recurring Revenue. Evolt 360 actually creates a third revenue stream after membership dues and personal training fees. Do the math: If you add just $20 per month to your base membership for one scan a month, each client adds up to an additional $240 a year — $4800 a year for getting as few as 20 clients on the machine.

5.

Unique Lead Generation. You can take your Evolt 360 out of the club to special events. Think health and wellness fairs, senior centers and recreation programs! The lead generation opportunities are limited only by your staff’s imagination.

6.

Training for Trainers. We don’t just send you a box and leave you on your own. Evolt provides a proven on-boarding program for all new clients to make sure everyone understands the process and the science. Your success is our success.

7.

Backed by Science. Evolt 360 is the exact opposite of a one-size-fits-all product. Its science accounts for the unique and personalized characteristics of every individual. Just like your club should!

8.

And one more thing: Scientific literature has written time and time again that there is no such thing as a direct measure of body composition — except in a post-mortem dissection of a cadaver. Scientific validation of BIA technology has proven the use of specific algorithms that consider age and gender to improve the accuracy of body composition measurement. The Evolt 360 takes that even further by incorporating five specific personalized variables – height, weight, gender, age and impedance – to provide the most accurate body composition measurement for any individual.
