TeresaGurmin before and after

In March 2014, Teresa Gurmin from Tredegar and a staff member Tredegar Sports Centre decided to take a huge step toward improving her health and wellbeing by embarking on a life changing journey with Aneurin Leisure.

At the start of her journey Teresa weighed over 19 stone, and after looking at photographs from a family party she decided to join an early morning exercise class, determined to turn her life around.

Even though she struggled with low confidence levels and felt aware of her size throughout the class, Teresa persevered and soon her confidence began to soar and continued with the routine she learnt every morning after the class had ended.

Teresa had a lot of support from her fellow work colleagues; who showed her new exercises, corrected her posture and gave her the motivation she needed to keep going.  Soon Teresa began to notice changes in herself and her body shape, and her confidence slowly started to improve.

A year after her journey began, Teresa had lost just over 3 stone and really began to start feeling good about herself and her friends and family also noticed the difference.  Then everything stopped with the sudden loss of a family member, leaving Teresa devastated and unsure how to continue.

It was on New Year’s Eve 2015 that Teresa decided the New Year was going to be a new start for her and she got back to her healthy eating and gym routine.

“Soon the pounds started to drop off me, I couldn’t believe how I started to feel, my confidence started growing and I felt great again.”

In September 2016, Teresa started the Les Mills BODYPUMP classes to tone up and get stronger. After the first class, Teresa definitely felt that she had worked out but thoroughly enjoyed it. She started going twice a week and could feel herself getting stronger with each class she attended.

Incredibly, since the start of her journey, Teresa has lost a total of 6 ½ stone, that’s a staggering 91 lbs - and has dropped four dress sizes from a 24 to a 14/16!

Teresa said of her incredible journey; “There’s no going back for me, I feel amazing and Les Mills classes are the best thing I have ever done.  The group are friendly and enthusiastic; the instructors motivate you and drive you when you feel like giving up.  I keep going and always push myself to give 100%.  For the first time in my life I feel great, losing weight and getting fitter has set me free.”
