I have been working with Andre for the last six months as he has been training me for the New York Marathon in November. His training regime has been endurance-based exercise using heart rate zones.
I am a complex client as I have several medical and psychological conditions; namely, Type 1 Diabetes, Epilepsy, High Blood pressure, Complex and Severe PTSD, Anxiety and Depression. Andre’s guidance and training system has been very effective and my running has improved significantly. Following on from this, I have also sought counsel from Andre with regard to nutrition. Although my running had improved I was unable to shed some unwanted kilos. Andre, with the support of my GP. introduced me to the Banting Diet, High Fat Low Carbohydrate. The results have been outstanding and it has been easy! In the last 7 weeks I have lost 12 kilograms.
I am feeling strong, healthy and full of life. In addition to the weight loss, I have seen significant results in the aforementioned conditions. My GP has reduced my blood pressure medication by half, my general mood has stabilised and my reliance on insulin has dropped significantly. I am only using approximately 20% of the insulin compared to my daily usage before starting the Banting Diet. I am not hungry and I do not crave sugar or bread. Andre has helped me considerably and I am very grateful for his support and knowledge. He is very caring, compassionate and quickly establishes a rapport with his clients which I think is a rare but essential quality.
