Resilience From April's Client Of The Month

Resilience From April's Client Of The Month


Our FitNutter For April is Maria Rehan!

Here at FitNut Loft we love to celebrate our client's wins. We call our clients "FitNutters" - someone who is dedicated and passionate into making a better future for herself. And this month, we are so happy to have Maria as FitNutter of the month!

When Maria joined us in December 2019, she was experiencing a wide range of "issues". Now, these problems weren't your typical problems that our clients come to us with. Most clients join us because they want to lose weight, get flexible, or fix a niggling body pain.

But Maria's "pain" was deeper than that. She suffered from alopecia. Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that can cause hair to fall out. On top of that, she also suffered from endometriosis - where tissue which forms the lining of the uterus grows in different parts, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes. Endometriosis can cause a variety of symptoms, most common are painful heavy periods - but these are not normal period cramps. They can be debilitating and affect quality of life.

Originally from Pakistan, and working for a large MNC with 2 children, Maria happened to live in the same building as our studio. But, it wasn't Maria who first entered our doors!

One day, her husband walked into the studio and met with Aly, the Founder. He was doing a recce to find out more about our studio. He must have liked what he heard, because he excitedly shared what he'd learnt about us, and how it could potentially help his wife with the pain she was experiencing.  

Shortly after, Maria booked an appointment with us for a consultation.

In the consultation we went through what her 'pain points' were, the result of which, Maria committed to working out with us 3 times a week. She was "all in", and knew from her experience with her gym in Pakistan that if she put in the time and effort, she would see results.

Maria joined our small group classes (no more than 6 pax) and joined a variety of classes, mostly our signature Strong & Lean classes. In these classes we combine the best of what women need as they age - strength training and pilates for flexibility and mobility. She was also a fan of our Jungle classes which uses a device that is suspended from the ceiling, which uses body weight to work the full body, as well as the core. To round that off, Maria would also join our pilates reformer classes. 

"I feel highly engaged in the classes and I feel very well taken care of. About a year ago, I had to undergo a few more surgeries. But even after returning back from them all the coaches were already informed of my condition. I didn't need to provide any details to the individual coaches. Aly had already informed them of my condition.".

We made sure that the whole team understaood what Maria was going through, so that we could monitor her progress and modify to suit her needs. 

The team continued to monitor her progress, especially what exercises she could, and could not do. So that we weren't left with any surprises in class, and it allowed all the coaches to plan ahead. Even for our group classes. 

 

What Changes Have You Noticed Since Training With Us?

"I'm stronger, more resilient, and have the winning mindset of never giving up!" Even faced with surgeries, Maria took the time she needed to recover, then joined the classes again.

"I had a smooth and pain free transition back to classes, but most importantly, the mental strength to survive the stress I was going through". 

Talking about "women issues" can be hard for women. We are taught that we mustn't talk about our lady bits - but Maria found that this experience enabled her to share her experience - which can only help other women just like her. 

Maria also joined our Little Black Dress Project in November 2020 and achieved remarkable results. In Just 4 short weeks, she lost overall 17cm around her body and dropped 3% body fat! 

What Do You Like About Training At FitNut Loft?

"I've personally connected with each coach, all of whom have different expertise, strengths and experiences". The community of FitNutters also helps for Maria and our other clients to connect on a level that they may not get in their social circle. 

Maria's goal is to continue with this journey, and her message to anyone thinking of starting their health journey, "Take the first step! Then the journey will be easier, as you will be in a supported environment".

During a period where our studio was closed due to Covid, Maria joined the virtual classes and in her own words, "I love the blend of the virtual and face to face classes!"

Congratulations Maria! You've done so well, and what we are most impressed is your commitment to keep working out 3/week even with your busy job and role as Mum.
