Meet Ilai!

Ilai has been consistently hard at work burning away excess weight with our persistent support. The more Ilai lost weight the bigger his enthusiasm became. People around him started noticing his great progress which only served to motivate him more! But Ilai wasn’t like this at all when he first approached us (well, he almost never did!). Since first starting out with us, he has lost a total of 10kg and still counting! Congratulations Ilai, keep up the great work! Check out what he has to say below:

“In 2014, I saw the 365 Performance / CrossFit Chipping Norton Facebook ad and I started sharing their posts and after four months, I decided to call and spoke to Scott. I promise that I would come by but I kept putting it off. I spent weeks watching from outside the gym in my parked car, I would see people going in and coming out gasping for breath, then I would just drive home. I did this for weeks!

I can see that I was gaining weight rapidly and it has taken toll on my job, all of my commitments in the community and in our local church. My knees started to give up on me and I always had back ache. I felt that I didn’t have all the energy that I used to. So in June this year, I dragged myself to start my first session where I had weighed in at 118kg. Now I’m 108kg! I feel stronger in my knees and can do box jumps, and my back is fine now.

I would like thank the team for their continual support and I still can’t believe that you took away my bread! But, you’ve convinced me when I started seeing results!I also want to thank all of the other 365 Performance coaches and the CrossFit Chipping Norton family for all the support that you all have been giving me in the past 6 months. Thank you very much!”
