Quitting is not an Option

freeletics1

I’ve already told you about Freeletics, didn’t I? Last week I finished my 15 weeks Cardio Coach. Before I started in January 2014 I didn’t like my body. After moving to W├╝rzburg last year I had gained 10kg(!) and I just couldn’t look into the mirror without feeling uncomfortable with myself. So I decided to change something and the boyfriend told me about Freeletics. The concept is amazing. You train only with the weight of your body either at home or outside. The workouts are short but oh, so insanely tough and when I started I never thought I could go through with it even though I’d done some kinds of sports all my life! What kept me going throughout the 15 weeks was wanting to beat myself over and over again. Beating my PB, my Personal Best and doing that with a star every single time! I just loved the entire experience and guess what? I lost 9 kg. I am so much fitter and I’ve never felt so good in my body. Ever.
So many people have asked me about it when the progress got visible and some of them (7 or 8) started Freeletics themselves. If you’re thinking about loosing weight or just getting fitter and healthier, I MOST DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT!

Now that the first 15 weeks are over I still don’t just quit. Freeletics is a sense of life that I never want to loose again. I added Yoga classes and running to my weekly fitness program and it just feels amazing.

Let me show you some pictures.

before
I can’t believe I’m posting a picture of me looking like that on the internet. So yeah, that’s me before I started my journey. 1,68m and 62kg. That’s a BMI of 22. Normal, I know. But I just didn’t feel comfortable with myself.

after week 8
This is halfway through, that means after Week 8. I’d had lost 4 oder 5kg. Good already but I wanted more.

after week 15
Finished! After week 15. Minus 9kg which is 53kg at a height of 1,68m. That’s a BMI of 18 and I’m feeling quite amazing.

Here’s a direct comparison:
beforeandafter
I have to admit that I am really proud of myself.

I just want to say THANK YOU, FREELETICS! You changed my life and you most definitely changed it for the better.

Don’t quit. Because you have to work for what you want. Good things never came from comfort zones. It’s easy as that. X
