Colin Mills

Goal – Weight Loss

Colin started training with me in December 2011 when he weighed in at 118kg. His goals were to lose weight and improve general fitness. At the time the target was to get down to 105kg.

Admittedly Colin had a poor diet relying on easy option food which was more often than not calorie dense and lacking in nutrients. With Colin's lifestyle and eating habits, it was never going to be proactive nor sustainable to go on a starvation diet or any kind of fasting-based diet so i put him on a balanced diet with the right macro-nutrients at the right times.

My aim with Colin was to burn as many calories as possible in the space of an hour. We did this using a combination of high-intensity cardio, circuit-based training and some steady-state cardio. The focus was on keeping his heart rate elevated the whole time.

By the summer, Colin was 104kg and happy with his weight loss. Progress began to stall and Colin stagnated at that weight despite getting fitter. This meant his diet had to be adjusted further to create the required calorie deficit that he needed to lose more weight and progress past the plateau.

Colin finally started to make progress again and by Christmas 2012 hit the milestone of 100kg – this was one year down the line with 18 kilos lost and all round fitness improved.

In the new year, Colin continued to progress and continued to smash milestones, hitting 95kg in the recent summer. With his new found fitness and mobility Colin has decided to take up rugby.

It is now September and two years down the line. Colin weighed in on Monday(9/12/13) at 88.9kg. With a total weightless of almost 30kg. Colin has completely transformed his physique and lost a quarter of his bodyweight in fat.

Starting Weight – 118kg

Current weight – 88.9kg

Target weight – 85kg

The overall target is now 85kg when our focus will change to weight training and the development of strength and lean muscle in which Colin will again aim transform his physique further, face a whole new set of goals and no doubt smash them as well!

Congratulation to Colin!
