STELLAR STAR OF THE MONTH - AUGUST, 2018

STELLAR STAR OF THE MONTH - AUGUST, 2018

My name is Anne Jonathan.  I joined Stellar Fitness in September 2015 and started my first Transformation challenge.

I was already doing quite a bit of cardio at the gym but what I needed in my fitness was a more defined balance between cardio and strengthening.  I felt more comfortable doing a Circuit class with Kat and the Stellar crew than anywhere else.

Also at this time, Spencer was a kidney recipient that year and was previously on dialysis.  At the time I felt I needed to be the fitter and healthier parent for our children while we went through our first year with “Sidney the kidney”.

I had already told myself that I would lose a lot of kilograms and get back to “how I used to be” in my first Transformation challenge. What I needed was to be honest with myself and realistic about my expectations.

I enjoy coming along to the Circuit classes and have recently started Tabata – which I find challenging but satisfying at the same time. You might not all agree.

I’ve always finished a Challenge and have always thought to myself afterwards “I did it”.

Thank you, Kat for helping me to achieve my goals.  

Anne.

As my wife Anne mentioned I was on dialysis due to chronic kidney disease. I’ve always tried looking after myself, and being active in things I do with my whanau and friends but, kidney failure was inevitable.

In 2015 I was very fortunate to receive a kidney from a donor for which I am truly grateful. January this year, I decided to get back into feeling good by way of healthy eating and exercise.

I then started working out at the gym instead of giving donations lol, later Anne introduced me to Kat and her Tabata classes - OMG I was buggered after every class for a month.

What I love about Kat's Stellar Fitness is that it’s a community of everyday people who all have a common goal, but also gaining the knowledge about ourselves, and the continuing inspirational support from Kat and the Stellar Fitness community.

I am now into my third Challenge with a commitment to the classes and reaping the rewards of feeling awesome.
