The EBC Diary – Kim Borelli

Well for those of you who don’t know me, my name is Kim Borelli and I joined EBC Brentwood back in January of this year. As I was fast approaching my 60th birthday and though my body type was not terrible, but you could tell I came from a pasta loving family.

I seriously knew that I had to start making some changes to my lifestyle or the rot would definitely start setting in for good. I had in the past joined the odd gym but never seemed to stick with it. Back in 2011 I did take up serious walking and even went to Everest Base Camp. However after that I just got stuck with not really doing much other than eating and sitting watching tv.

Crunch time came just after the new year 2016 enough was enough I felt bloated and very unfit. Me being me and still with the mindset of a 28 year old decided I would join Essex Boot Camp as I knew this would be harsh and there is no escaping the watchful eye of the instructors. That first session went ok or so I thought, next day I could barely walk but knew I had to stick with it and face another session the next day.
More pain, days turned into weeks then months, however I never thought of quitting.

It was a slow process of eliminating the bad foods in my diet and eating more healthier meals without cutting the calories. That combined with 3/4 sessions at boot camp I slowly started to see and feel the results. I don’t weigh myself but most certainly I have dropped a couple of sizes. I can honestly say it’s the best thing I have ever done.

I love the banter the instructors dish out and the motivation and encouragement the whole team has given me makes every session something I truly look forward to. Some of my friends have said at my age how on earth do I manage to keep up. Well I tell them age is just a number and it’s how you feel inside. In fact I feel 10 years younger since I joined. I would say to anyone just give it a go and stay long enough to see the magic happen.

Thank you EBC.
