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.”
Krista is a 34 y/o from New Zealand and an Endomorph body type. She completed the Lean Legs Video Course and joined the Share Your Journey Challenge to inspire other amazing women. :)
If you don’t know what it is, Share Your Journey Challenge is an 8-week challenge for all women who follow any of our programs.
To join, all you have to do is send me your progress pics along with your story and you could win some cool prizes!
Here’s Krista’s story and I hope it motivates you on your own fitness journey!
1. What was your fitness routine before you started the program? How did you find out about the program and what convinced you to try it out?
Krista: I had no routine and I felt unhealthy and unhappy. I found it on Instagram and the program seemed really well structured and easy to follow.
2. What was your absolute favourite part of the program and why? What was the most challenging part of the program?
Krista: The positive effects of walking were my favourite – my legs slimmed down and walking allows the time to let your brain breathe while doing something good for your body too.
The most challenging was changing my diet to adhere to the recommended macros for endomorphs! Learning how to eat mindfully has been interesting for me.

3. When did you first start seeing results? How did you track your progress and how did you feel when you noticed those first results?
Krista: I saw the results after the first month. It didn’t seem gradual, it took a while and then all of a sudden the weight loss was noticeable.
I took progress pics and weighed myself to track my progress.

4. How did you feel after finishing the program? What are your goals for the future?
Krista: I’m still in a bit of disbelief I managed to achieve a weight loss goal for the first time, and happy. I’d like to keep following Rachael so my next goal is G.A.L!
G.A.L is my newest program which includes a cardio plan and resistance training videos. It’s designed to lean out your legs, firm up your booty and tone your abs.
Are you happy with what you have achieved so far? Would you recommend the program to your friends?
Krista: I did 1 round and I’m very happy with what I achieved. Maybe I’ll incorporate a little more weights into my routine in the future.
And I would recommend it to my friends because it’s easy to follow and it’s flexible enough that you can choose how closely you follow the program according to your goals.
For example, I didn’t do the running and I made my own menu while making sure my calorie and macro consumption adhered to the recommendations of the program.
Do you have any advice for the girls that are about to start their fitness journey?
Krista: Trust the process and don’t get disheartened if it takes a while to see results.
Don’t weigh yourself too often and try to focus on how you look and feel rather than the number on the scale going down.
Thank you so much Krista! I’m so happy that you’re part of my community and I can’t wait to see your journey with G.A.L!
Love Rachael xx
