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.
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 Analyser 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.”
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.
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 favourite 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.”
