My name is Samantha, I’m 28 years of age and have been training for over 5 years now. Whilst I started as most women do with cardio only training sessions, I decided I lacked motivation so I joined a boot camp team where I quickly realised that weight training was my passion. I signed up with a PT and learned that I had some potential in building lean muscle fast. After a few years I noticed my body wasn’t really changing and I decided that it was my diet that was holding me back. I knew what I wanted to look like but didn’t have a clue where to start. Coming from a European background, I knew dieting was going to be challenging, so I wanted some educated guidance on what I should do.
My friend Michelle gave me Tim’s details. I’d heard he specialised in body sculpturing and competitions so I was a little apprehensive to see Tim as I had no intention to go down that track. After a Bioprint session and discussion with Tim, I felt like I was in good hands. Tim’s knowledge is second to none. He opened my eyes to what I have been doing wrong this whole time, and why I hadn’t seen dramatic results over the past 5 years. Just by doing my biosig, he knew I suffered from digestion issues and lack of sleep.
He was able to sort me out with a very specific diet plan, one that would work for MY body, not some generic one that was found off the internet. Tim also recommended a range of natural supplements to aid my progress.
Within a few weeks, my digestion issues that I had long-suffered with had dramatically decreased, and I was having a good night’s rest.
After attending an ANB workshop, I made a last minute decision to enter in my first competition and entered Novice Fitness Model & U30’s Open. Throughout my competition prep, I had many questions, this was all very foreign to me. Tim supported me 120% during this time. Whether I was having a carb-depletion meltdown, supplement or any other strange question, Tim was always available. If I called and he was busy, he called back as soon as he became free. I felt like I was in the safe hands, which was extremely important to me. Training and dieting were hard, but Tim made it as easy as humanly possible for me.
During my short 5½ week prep and Tim’s training & diet plans, l dropped from 18.6% to 10.4% body fat and put on 4.6kg of lean muscle. I placed 3rd & 5th in this competition. Along with finishing my Half Marathon and Tough Mudder, my competition has been my proudest achievement to date. To get on stage and be recognised for my hard work and dedication was a feeling I’d never forget, and I was proud to represent Tim and bodyseek on stage.
I’ve since developed a passion for Competing and I finished season B of 2015 with 3rd place in Figure Tall Class Open Division, which I’m wrapped with having started in Fitness only 5 months ago.
Meeting Tim has opened me up to many opportunities I never thought were possible. I’ve made a tonne of new friends in the fitness industry and I’ve gained a new confidence and lease on life. I’m happy with the way I look and I know what I’m capable of.
Being affiliated with ANB, I have had photoshoots and even applied to be a covergirl on Oxygen Magazine, making the final 3 out of 350 competitors and being published in the magazine.. I owe all of this to Tim, his knowledge has set me up for a fit future, and I’m very grateful. I’ve since recommended many of my family and friends to Tim and they are equally as happy with their results. If you’re tired of training and not getting results like I was, go see Tim!
