How Georgia made room to get back on track
Between work commitments, spending time with the family, household chores and keeping a social calendar, it might seem impossible to add anything else to your plate. It’s little wonder then that most people tend to sacrifice their health and exercise just to keep up with their daily routines.
But making room in the day to get back on track should be seen as a priority, and after suffering from hormone irregularities as well as trying different contraception options to not feel ‘yuck’, Georgia Monzari finally ensured she made the time to get fit and strong with her partner by joining a brand new gym near her house in late 2020 and make an effort to track her body composition.
“We all had a weird year that year,” she says.
“I was having a really yuck time back then, and a friend mentioned Body Fit Training to me, saying there was one opening up near my house; my partner and I basically joined straight away. I fell in love with the training, lifting weights and even cardio as well as the community aspect that Body Fit Training Hamilton East prides itself with.”
Georgia’s Training Goals
Georgia did all her training through Body Fit Hamilton East, with set classes that mixed between cardio and strength training. She’d also signed up for an 8 week challenge, which was her first experience stepping up onto an Evolt 360 body composition analyzer and seeing, for the first time, all the figures correlating to her health and what she needed to do to get to her optimum level of health.
“Through the Evolt scanner, I was given macro targets to hit towards my goals, and Body Fit has a nutritional plan during their challenges with meals that can help you hit those targets,” Georgia explains.
“I followed the nutritional plan word for word, annoying my partner by making sure every inch was weighed out exactly, and cut out alcohol for the entire course of the challenge.”
“For me, preparation was key. I made sure my lunches for the week were made each Sunday, and this included my snacks for each day. Having all your food ready to go stopped me from walking to the shop or stopping in at a café.”
In terms of supplements, Georgia would have a protein shake after each workout and whenever she needed a bit more protein in her diet. She also used a pre workout for those cardio days.
The Best Bits
Altogether, Georgia has done 5 body scans with the Evolt 360, and says it’s the detail of the report that is her favourite feature.
“You see a full body composition in your scan report, from fat mass to muscle mass,” she says.
“It helps you understand more about your body than just weight. This detail made me more confident from the start, that my weight is made up by more than just fat.”
“What’s more, another great thing about the Evolt 360 is the app that it connects to. The Evolt Active app allows me to see my progress over the course of the year, with each scan saved to the app. It shows me the changes I’m making, and this is one of the things that has kept me motivated throughout this whole year.”
Taking a look at Georgia’s transformation, here are the before and after figures of her Evolt 360 body scan; the first taken on 2 October 2021, and the second on 27 November 2021:
|Weight (kg/lbs)||93.9 kg||80.8 kg|
|Subcutaneous Fat Mass (kg/lbs/%)||29.5 kg||19.9 kg|
|Visceral Fat Area (cm2)||91.0 cm2||40.0 cm2|
|Visceral Fat Level||12.0||6.0|
|Total Body Fat %||36.0 %||27.4 %|
|Lean Body Mass (kg/lbs)||60.1 kg||58.7 kg|
|Skeletal Muscle Mass (kg/lbs)||32.9 kg||32.5 kg|
|Protein (kg/lbs)||11.5 kg||11.8 kg|
Where Georgia Is Now
From the before scan to the after, it’s been a whopping change for Georgia – and all her hard work is evident in the results.
“The detail the Evolt scan gives you is something I haven’t seen before,” Georgia explains.
“Through such a detailed scan, I could see where my goals should be. I went in wanting to be thinner, but now I have goals that are so different because of those scans. I can see how much muscle I want to gain, and what macros I should be eating to achieve these goals.”
“For anyone else thinking of starting their journey, my tip is to find yourself a community of people who will keep you accountable and help you enjoy the process. Body Fit Training Hamilton East was exactly that type of place for me, from the trainers to my workout buddies. And they kept it fun and pushed me further than I could ever have myself.”
“Having people believe in you makes the difference, and I’m beyond lucky to be part of a community of people who believe in other.”
