A word from Rachael:
”If you’ve been following me on Instagram, or reading my blog, you know that you girls are my main inspiration & motivation. This is why I recently reached out to some of you to ask about your progress and feedback. These are their stories. Hope you find them as motivating and uplifting as I have.”
In this interview, I chatted with 33 y/o Kanika from the US. She did my 3 Steps to Lean Legs Program for a couple of times. Here is a summary of her experience & results after completing the Program.
1. WHAT WAS YOUR FITNESS ROUTINE BEFORE YOU STARTED 3 STEPS TO LEAN LEGS PROGRAM AND WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO CHANGE IT?
KANIKA: I didn’t have any fitness routine because I never really thought I required it.
I am naturally lean (Mesomorph) and used to do yoga at home. Whenever I gained weight (like a few months after marriage), I followed a diet of almost no salt after 6 pm and could easily shed that extra weight.
My thighs were always big and they always bothered me and but then nothing I knew would help me get them in shape.
It was after I gave birth that my thighs became so much bigger than before so I knew I had to do something about it.
I researched a lot online and then came across your blog.
I had my reservation because I had never purchased a program or followed a routine but I was so desperate to get lean leg that after having talked to you over email I thought I could give it a try.
Also, the reason I liked it, is because there was walking and low-intensity workouts. I hate doing squats or running so that was another motivation. I started doing your program in Oct 2018.

This is Kanika after 8 weeks on my Program :)
4. WHAT WAS YOUR ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE PART OF MY PROGRAM AND WHY?
KANIKA: I loved everything except running :)
I love it beacuse:
- it’s sustainable
- I don’t have to spend hours in the gym doing something I don’t like
- I’m seeing results for the first time ever in my life.
- I went from size 6 to size 2 which is a game-changer for me.

5. WHAT WAS THE MOST CHALLENGING PART OF THE PROGRAM?
KANIKA: Following the vegan meal plan.
I was very excited about the new vegan plan but being a working mum I don’t find as sustainable as your original meal plan. I just think that the vegan meal plan is’ a lot of work. I prefer your non-vegan meal plan.
[Both meal plans are included in my Program ;)]
6. WHEN DID YOU FIRST START SEEING RESULTS?
KANIKA: Pretty soon, probably in 4 weeks.
I took progress photos and compared them. Plus, I noticed that all my pants even before pregnancy were getting too big for me. I was extremely happy with those results so I never stopped doing the Program:)
I still follow it every day. I walk at least 6 days a week and mange to do couple low-intensity workouts per week and one HIIT.
This is Kanika after 4 weeks when she just started seeing results for the first time :)

8. WOULD YOU RECOMMEND 3 STEPS TO LEAN LEGS PROGRAM TO YOUR FRIENDS?
Yes! I would recommend it because it’s doable, sustainable, and most importantly gets your results.
9. DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR THE GIRLS WHO ARE ABOUT TO START THEIR FITNESS JOURNEY WITH MY PROGRAM?
KANIKA: Be patient and keep an eye on your diet.
You may be a Mesomorph like me but beware if running actually gets your results. Everyone is different and like Rachael mentioned in one of her blog posts, if running makes your legs bulky substitute it with walking.
My legs started getting bigger from running but when I switched back to walking I was leaner than ever before.
Love Rachael xx
